Bayern poised to select ominously strong team to ensure progression…
With Bayern 2-0 up from the first leg, here’s the side we think Pep Guardiola will choose this evening to face Arsenal in the Champions League last 16.
GK) Manuel Neuer
The German stopper is arguably the best keeper in the world right now, and Arsenal know they will have to score at least two past him if they are to progress to the quarters.
The Brazilian provides a consistent attacking option down the right for Bayern when they are in possession, but has the fitness to track back and contribute defensively on the rare occasions his side don’t have the ball.
DC) Jerome Boateng
With Holger Badstuber a long term injury victim, Boateng and Dante start nearly every match at the heart of defence. Don’t expect this evening to be any different.
The Brazilian is powerful, but also has the technical ability to start attacks from deep with crisp passes into the midfield.
DL) David Alaba
Alaba missed a penalty last during the first leg, and will be keen to rectify the mistake with a typically barnstorming display down the left.
