Today will surely be lit at the Alianz Arena where Bayern will host Arsenal for this UCL fixture.
It is well known that between these two, there’s been a lot of “scores settlings” in the past years with both sides facing each other in this particular round, and Arsenal usually giving way for the Germans to proceed to the next stage.
I doubt that will be the story this time, but who knows, it’s football.
Bayern are at the top of the Bundesliga table, which is nothing new. They are coming in great form, having won ten out of the last eleven competitive games, with just one draw. However they haven`t been very convincing lately, beating Werder and Freiburg 2:1, drawing against Schalke 1:1, and beating Wolfsburg 1:0 in DFB Cup. Also, on Saturday they won on their visit to Ingolstadt 2:0, but with both of their goals coming in stoppage time. Of course they were the better team in that game, but it wouldn`t have been unfair if Ingolstadt took a point. They will be missing injured Boateng and Ribery.
Arsenal are just the same. Same Wenger boys we’ve known for the past decade. Just when they put up a good run followed by good performances, they lose to some below-average team like Watford. It’s pretty unfortunate for both the players and fans of this once great club, that they can’t achieve more than they did when Henry was with them. The closest they’ve gone to lifting the premier league trophy since Henry’s departure was last season when they finished 2nd with 10 points less than Leicester City the winners.
Bayern are clear favourites for this game, given their home-field advantage, and the fact that they have more quality team. However, both teams have not been convincing lately, and anything could happen here. Bayern have been a lot more successful in recen years in their head-to-head meetings, with last game finishing 5:1 for Bayern, a season ago. Arsenal will be determined to get back to Bayern, but Bayern will hardly allow that. Given the recent results of the teams, I think that both teams should make their mark here. Both teams scored in every game from November till now, and I think they will continue in the same fashion here.
