Bayern munich vs Arsenal

During a 2-1 win over Burnley on January 22, he pushed the fourth official and received a four-game sideline ban. "I would like to see them do it and I think that's probably the way forward".

Wenger says Arsenal have the experience to counter a Bayern team who have been far from impressive in 2017.

Arsenal are the underdogs heading into the game after the recent stuttering run of form in the Premier League left them 10 points behind leaders Chelsea. Yes, their league might be a lot easier to win than the Premier League, but the Germans invariably reach the semifinals of the Champions League, at least.

With Barcelona on the brink of elimination after a 4-0 mauling at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern will fancy their chances of winning the Champions League this season.

After a decent first-half display that saw Alexis Sanchez level things up following an Arjen Robben opener, Arsenal imploded as soon as Laurent Koscielny limped off at the start of the second period. Against Bayern we must ensure all the firepower at our disposal is not wasted.

At times Bayern were mesmerising but the manner of Arsenal's capitulation in their manager's 100th away match in Europe will have many suggesting Wenger's time is up.

"I meet Oli once a year at a golf tournament in Mallorca and last year we made some jokes about the topic, but at that time it was not a real possibility", he said.

'I can't ever say I'd like to see him go, he's nearly my football father.

Arsenal did go undefeated in group play, finishing ahead of Paris Saint-Germain, Ludogorets Razgrad and Basel.

It was 1-1 at the break, but Bayern stepped up the pressure in the second half.

The German club has won five out of its last six games in all competitions, extending its lead atop the Bundesliga (German first division) standings to seven points and advancing to the DFB-Pokal (German Cup) quarterfinals.

Bayern Munich are not the same Bayern Munich as they were under Pep Guardiola, and that showed as Arsenal came back into the match, and got an away goal.

"I have nothing to hide there, it will be Ospina because of the quality of his performances", he said. "If you analyse his performances in every single game we are where we are because of his great performances". "His hashtags accompanying the picture said "#WeAreReady" and "#Focus".
