Arsenal must be thoroughly sick of the sight of Bundesliga side Bayern Munich having faced them four times already in five seasons of Champions League football and it has rarely been a happy experience for Arsene Wenger’s men it must be said.
The Germans eliminated the Gunners in the last sixteen round in 2012/13 and 2013/14 and one must surely fancy their chances of dumping the north Londoners out of the competition once again this week.
The Gunners lost 5-1 in the first leg of this last-sixteen clash and must win the return match at the Emirates by at least four clear goals in order to progress. Surely only the most deluded Arsenal fan will expect such an outcome tonight. Nevertheless we wouldn’t be shocked to see a home win given that whilst Bayern are particularly strong at the Allianz Arena, They are far from convincing on the road. The Germans will be looking to defend their comfortable four-goal cushion and won’t be taking any unnecessary risks along the way. As such, we expect them to be on the back foot for much of tonight’s match although whilst the Gunners look good to secure the win tonight, it certainly won’t be enough to see them through to the last eight of the competition.
