Bayern Munich will look to keep their treble hopes alive when they on Arsenal in the 2nd leg of their last 16 Champions league clash later today.
Pep Guardiola’s side currently blazing a trail through the Bundesliga currently hold a 2-0 advantage following goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller at the Emirates two weeks ago.
The German’s, 23 points clear at the top of the German league and already into the semi-finals of the DFB Pokal cup, have won their last 12 competitive games and has scored an impressive 21 goals in their last five games.
Their most recent result was a 6-1 win away to fifth place Wolfsburg, a result that highlighted once more the growing gap between Bayern and the chasing pack.
The win was their 16th successive in the Bundesliga and was achieved with five second half goals. Despite the impressive second half showing seemingly impossible to please Guardiola was not a happy man.
Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “We were not as dominant as in recent games.
“Wolfsburg had super organisation and were very aggressive.
“In the first half we had problems, even in the first 15 minutes of the second half. But at the end of we have scored the goals.”
Arsenal meanwhile will head to the Allianz Arena confident that they overcome the odds and reach the quarter-finals of Europe’s premier competition.
Last year the Gunners won 2-0 in Munich only to crash out on the away goal rule following a 3-1 reversal at home and after a strong performance against Everton in the FA Cup quarter-finals Arsene Wenger is confident that his side can replicate the performance of last year.
“It was important of course for us to win today to put us on a psychological front in a good mind and we can be inspired by our focus, by our desire and go to Bayern with the same spirit,” the Frenchman said, speaking after the 4-1 win over the Toffees.
“The statistics go against us at Bayern but let’s make sure the performance goes for us, then we have a chance.”
Arsenal will head to Germany without the services of Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey as well as long term absentee Theo Walcott and Abou Diaby.
Oliver Giroud, in the headlines for the wrong reasons in recent weeks, will hope this two goals from the bench will see him start in Munich.
The French star was dropped for the first leg in London but has responded in sterling fashion with four goals in his last three games, taking his tally to the season to 18.
