Match Highlights & Full Match – available after the game end
Arsenal is heading to the trip to the Allianz Arena having two goals behind against the Champions league reigning winner, Bayern Munich, hoping to pull off a miracle like the last season when Wenger’s men celebrated a 2-0 victory. Still, Bayern reached the next stage, but with the same result Gunners can at least win the extra time against the superb Pep Guardiola’s side, who smashed the last weekend Wolfsburg on tour with 6-1.
With the likes of Szczesny, Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey (thigh), Kim Kallstrom (back) who are out for this game,Theo Walcott , Abou Diaby, and doubtful duo Laurent Koscielny (hamstring) and Nacho Monreal (foot) , Wenger will have a difficult job setting the first lineup, which can summon a repeat of their last trip to Germany and to stand a chance of Champions League progression this Tuesday.
In the first leg match, this season, Bayern pulled a 2-0 win thanks to Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller, but it would be a fair thing to say, that Gunners had their chances until their goalkeeper, Szczesny was sent-off. Before that, Arsenal had the best possible chance to take a lead, from a penalty shot, which Manuer Neur saved to Ozil. Later on, Bayern missed his penalty also.
As for the German side, probably the most optimistic Gunners fans believe that Arsenal can surprise Pep Guardiola’s side, knowing in which form the German champions currently plays. Led by Arjen Robber, Franck Ribery, and the Croat Mario Mandzukic, barely anyone can remember when it was the last time, Bayern Munich have lost the game. But we will tell you that fact, it was back in October 2012, that Bayern Munich lost at home the last time. A high win over Wolfsburg and return of Xherdan Shaqiri, Thomas Muller and Franck Ribery from injuries, certainly will only boost more their morale ahead of this game with the London side.
Pep Guardiola doesn’t have any big problems regarding the injuries, but probably the strongest line-up will start.

Bayern Munich probable lineup : Neuer – Rafinha, Boateng, Dante, Alaba – Lahm, Schweinsteiger – Roben, Alcantara, Ribery – Mandžukić
Arsenal probable lineup : Fabianski – Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs – Flamini, Arteta – Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ozil, Cazorla – Giroud
