Bayern Munich are on their travels to North London on Tuesday evening as they take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in the Champions League round of 16 first leg.
These two both love to play attacking football and get the ball down on the floor at every opportunity they have, but there is no doubt that Bayern look to be the stronger team coming into this one.
Three Bundesliga teams have made it through to the knockout stages of this compeition, which shows you how strong the German top flight is and Bayern currently sit 15 points clear at the top of that table, so are certainly a team full of quality.
With that in mind, it is no surprise that they are the 11/10 favourites to come out on top in this one.
Josef Heynckes’ men ooze class throughout the pitch as they have players such as Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez in the middle of the park making the team tick, and then the pace and skill of Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery providing that bit of magic for the strikers.
Heynckes has a decision to make in whether to play Mario Gomez or Mario Mandzukic and if recent performances are anything to go by, he is likely to chose the latter.
With confidence in the camp sky high and every player seeming to know each other’s games perfectly, Bayern come to the Emirates in the best shape possible and they will look to grab a few away goals on Tuesday evening.
Arsenal are not in good shape at all after their shock FA Cup defeat to Blackburn Rovers over the weekend and in truth, reaching the latter stages of the Champions League is what they need to bring some joy in what has been a shocking campaign so far.
The Gunners haven’t been able to raise their game against the big teams in the Premier League this campaign, so they have to change something here as Bayern are as tough as it gets in Europe’s elite club compeition.
Some reports are suggesting that Wenger could axe Oliver Giroud for this one and go with the attacking trio of Theo Walcott, Santi Cazorla and Lukas Podolski.
Podolski will be desperate to get himself on the score-sheet against his former club and he is 10/3 shot to score at anytime on Tuesday evening. The German hasn’t hit the heights he would have wanted to with Arsenal yet, but this could be the game where he really announces himself on the biggest stage.
Wenger is feeling the pressure at the Emirates and this one of his biggest nights as manager of the club. Arsenal are out at 14/5 to come out top here and if they are to make it through to the quarter-finals, you feel as though they have to win and keep a clean sheet.
It is all set for a fantastic evening of action in the capital and both sets of fans will be making a lot of noise from 7.45PM on Tuesday evening.
