ARSENAL v BAYERN MUNICH BETTING PREVIEW
Arsenal made it three successive emphatic victories by easing past Watford 3-0 last Saturday. Five wins in their last six Premier League outings have seen them climb to second spot, just two points shy of league leaders Manchester City. Anyway, they go into this match with no points from their first two Champions League games, having lost to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos. Defeat to Bayern this week is simply not an option because they will be virtually knocked out of the competition.
Arsene Wenger will be without forward Danny Welbeck, midfielders Jack Wilshere and Tomas Rosicky. Defender Gabriel is available again as is Olivier Giroud who missed their last Champions League outing through suspension. The Frenchman isn't expected to usurp Theo Walcott up front.
Bayern Munich have won all 12 of their competitive games so far. A 1-0 victory at Werder Bremen saw the Bavarians become the first team in history to win their first 9 fixtures in the Bundesliga. They are already seven points clear of second placed Dortmund whom they crushed 5-1 in a home fixture a week ago. In the Champions League Guardiola's men brushed Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb aside, 3-0 and 5-0, respectively. They have only conceded 5 goals this season!
The likes of Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery remain absent and Sebastian Rode, Mario Götze, Holger Badstuber and Mehdi Benatia are also sidelined. Douglas Costa is set to have a fitness test prior to the match and could be replaced by Kingsley Coman if he fails to make the grade.
Bayern have not been the best of travellers in Europe over the years, winning just three of their last nine away games. The Bavarians have won on the occasion of each of their last two visits to the Emirates Stadium, which were both round of 16 first-leg assignments, and the Bavarians have won four and drawn two of eight previous encounters with the London club.
