Up to date Arsenal v Bayern Munich odds from the Champions League, plus team news, live stream as Paddy Power offer 10/1 on Arsenal or 4/1 on Bayern to win tonight.
How to pick up your 10/1 on Arsenal OR 4/1 on Bayern Munich:
We’re all set for another titanic clash of European football at the Emirates this evening as the Gunners welcome current Champions league holders Bayern Munich to the Emirates, in what could be a classic encounter.
In a repeat of last years game, Bayern Munich are predictably firm favourites with the bookmakers, and can be backed at a short price of 10/11, but taking Paddy Power’s offer up you can get 4/1, which should bring you a handsome return.
Those expecting the Emirates faithful to roar on Arsenal to a home win can get an enhanced price of 10/1, which looks huge considering the normal price of 3/1 for Arsenal to win, and at this price there is definite value.
After last nights masterclass from Barcelona, football fans and punters alike are in for another treat with the arrival of German heavyweights Bayern Munich to the Emirates Stadium in a game in which the Gunners are certain to look for an early first leg advantage.
Having finished only runners up to Borussia Dortmund in Group F, Arsene Wenger’s side now have to face the difficult task of overcoming Pep Guardiola’s side, who finished top of Group D.
For Wenger, a recent change in fortunes has brought increased optimism amongst the camp – since their 5-1 defeat at Anfield in the Premiership the Gunners have improved somewhat, with a clean sheet against Manchester United as well as reversing their defeat by Liverpool in the FA Cup last weekend.
A perfect tonic as they welcome the opponents who knocked them out of the Champions League at the same stage last year – a 3-3 aggregate draw not enough to save the Gunners on the away goal rule.
Arsenal are still fighting for the Premiership title and a win over their illustrious opponents is sure to give the side renewed confidence as they look to maintain their title aspirations.
£42.4m Mesut Ozil may have been added to the Arsenal ranks since that time, but for Pep Guardiola and his Bayern side, it looks like business as usual.
Their Bundesliga form has been perfect some would say, still unbeaten and winning 19 of their 21 matches, which has seen them hold an almost insurmountable 16 point lead at the top.
Franck Ribery will again be missing for Bayern, the French international continuing his rehabilition from a buttock injury, as will Xherdan Shaqiri, who is out with a thigh strain. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Daniel Van Buyten should come back into the team having shaken off knocks.
Santi Cazorla, Bacary Sagna and Olivier Giroud could return to the Arsenal side after missing the Liverpool match last weekend, while Mikel Arteta is suspended, Tomas Rosicky coming in to replace the Spaniard in midfield.
Its sure to be a cracker, make sure you get on at some big prices (KO 19:45GMT).
