Champions League: Arsenal vs Bayern Munich preview

Arsenal will host Bayern Munich today at the Emirates for their Champions League last 16 second leg fixture.

The tie looks to be a formality as the Bavarians destroyed Arsenal 5-1 in the first leg.
It is not the first time the two teams meet each other in the competition, and so far Bayern Munich progressed on each occasion. The scenario looks the same this time, as Arsenal face an almost impossible task of turning the tie around.

In the first leg, not only the result was demolishing for the Gunners, but also the overall picture of the play. Bayern were clearly much better in every aspect of the game. The German side controlled the whole match, and Arsenal had only a 15-20 minutes spell, where they were not outplayed. Bayern took the lead, but during the mentioned period, Arsenal levelled thanks to an Alexis Sanchez goal, just after the Chilean himself missed a penalty.
It clearly did not help the Gunners’ task, when Laurent Koscielny was forced to leave the field. Bayern quickly scored three goals afterwards, before the Bavarians struck once again late in the game.

Arsenal need to score at least four more goals tonight which seems to be an impossible task, given the current form of the teams.

Arsenal come to the match after yet another dissapointing result in the Premier League. They were defeated 3-1 by Liverpool, with the Reds truly deserved to win the game. Again, Arsenal could not handle their opponents, and were second best for the whole match.

The happenings around Alexis Sanchez clearly does not help them, as Arsene Wenger shocked everyone by leaving his star man on the bench. It backfired, as Arsenal couldn’t create anything in the opening half. It was no surprise, that Wenger introduced them for the second half, but it came late as the Gunners were already 2-0 down. As expected, Wenger was in hot water yet again after his questionable decision.

Arsenal lost three out of their last five games in all competitions. Their two wins came against struggling Hull City in the Premier League, and against fifth-tier Sutton United in the FA Cup. All of their three defeats were huge blows for them. They slipped to the fifth place in the Premier League after two defeats against their direct rivals, Chelsea and Liverpool. The third one was the 5-1 loss to Bayern, which out them on the verge of another early exit from the Champions League.

Meanwhile Bayern are in great form, and they currently sit comfortably on the top of the Bundesliga table, holding a seven-point advantage over second placed Leipzig. The Bavarians won five of their last six matches, which included an eight-goal demolition of Hamburg in the league. They drew with Hertha Berlin in the league, with Berlin leading till the dying minutes of the match.

Based on all below facts, it would be one of the biggest shocks and turnarounds in football history, if somehow the Gunners could progress to the last eight. As avoiding the exit is almost impossible for Arsenal, they can only play for their pride. A win by any margin could be a boost to their low confidence, and also a boost for their fans.

On the other side, Bayern are clearly in the driving seat, which means they could even have a luxury of resting some key players.
