Team News

  • Franck Ribéry completed the full 90 minutes in the 6-1 win over Wolfsburg at the weekend and should be fine to start here.
  • Mario Götze is carrying a knock and is a doubt for Bayern.
  • The Germans do, however, have a great deal of cover in central midfield areas, with Javi Martínez and Bastian WSchweinsteiger on standby.
  • Arsenal will be without Wojciech Szczesny after his sending off in the first leg of this tie.
  • Laurent Koscielny is in the squad after missing out at the weekend, while Kieran Gibbs is out so Thomas Vermaelen should start at left-back.
  • Aaron Ramsey is nearing fitness and may be involved at some stage.


  • Arsenal travel to the Allianz for the second successive season, again facing the prospect of needing a 2-goal victory away at the reigning European champions.
  • They were thoroughly outplayed in the first leg but weren't helped by Szczesny's sending off, and will also take some hope from the fact that they won here 2-0 last season.
  • There was a complacency in Bayern last season that should not be present this time around, and they are, incredibly, yet stronger this term.

  • @praveenarsenal hey fake fan of arsenal by wet if mean getting out cl last 16 for almost a decade yes. But plz dont proud loser. I know the only source of football ur getting at ur home is EPL. Loser like reallt don't get much choice in seeing quality contetnt. If im not wrong ur first exposure la liga and serie a was in 2012 courstesy RUpert Murdock brainwashing. I bet ur not only fan of arsenal but of whole EPL hence making u fake Arsenal fan. A true Gooner would always stick to Arsenal not to man u or chelsea. Liking a another EPL club besides arsenal is trait of fake fan or tv arsenal fan to be more precise.

  • @commandozap new comer to football. Only tv fan of arsenal never seen real emirates stadium thinks he know alot abt football. Dortmund the same team that topped the group in Assnal were playing in. Came in CL final last year an ordianry team? On the verge for Qualifying QF? Average team wat abt MAn UTD on the verge of getting bad and Man City (club i respect)? U started this good for nothing EPL vs Bundesliga war? U know the real answer fake arsenal fan Bundesliga is ahead by miles. THe ppl who liking ur comments are chip from same block. All of those tv fans nothing more than that. SO PLZ SHUT UP STOP MAKING FOOL OF URSELVES AND STUPID MATES TO ALONG WITH IT!

  • Zoroaster hahaha you know what funny that they say bayern is an average team in europe and still bayern is the champion and they humilated them and other big teams and get their silly hopes for a trophy disappear , if an average team (like they say) get them out then what they gonna do when they face the CL winners ?! Oh wait thet's bayern Loooooool

  • @commandozap: if Bayern is average in europe, then what teams are stronger for you?

  • @commandozap At least dortmund reach to the final not 16 stage !

  • They can just bully Leverkusen , Schalke , Dortmund who are nothing but blatant joke in CL

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • @commandozap yes you are right, because we saw how Arsinal plays versus Bayern and Dortmund.

  • Arsenal simply are not good enough to beat Bayern. Great effort by them but the squad needs much greater strengthening in the summer. Ozil is simply not enough. Poldi goal was class even if there was a blatant push in the build-up. But after the goal Guardiola killed the game by bringing on Kroos for an attacker. Despite league form Bayern don't look like definites for the CL. Tougher tests to come for them. Ox was amazing as well

  • Everyone is talking about how good Bayern are in the bundesliga and how they are 20 points clear when the play against weak opposition. But now under guardiola in tough games against good opposition, they do not know how to grind out a 1-0 or 2-0 win like they did under their previous manager, because of the different playing styles from this season and last. Yes Bayern dominated the match, but they were not good enough to convert loads of possession into goals. By the way, top game by oxlade chamberlain, definite selection for england at the world cup

  • We made the european champions wet themselves #coyg

  • Ribery who? The Ox! 10 dribbles completed!

  • Roses are red Violets are blue Arsenal's only chance Is the FA trophy

  • Apparently Ozil was injured. Great game ox, future star. Podolski, don't leave. Upgrade Giroud. Arsenal can take belief, win the fa cup, and push for second I'm the prem league

  • Commandozap, don't bore us by repeating the same sentence over and over again ...

  • Arsenal had zero chance and Bayern didn't have to do much offensivly

  • As expected , bayern can bully only the kids of bundesliga but wet their panties when they meet strong opposition

  • Arsenal do not attack. In these conditions, it is impossible to win a match.

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Cazorla really weak...

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • NOW Bayern will go on full-attack mode , if they fail they can just bully kids of Bundesliga

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Ozil should come in, he's stuck on the wing. The ox needs more support

  • Well, Bayern aren't complacent, and look like scoring anytime.good arsenal defending.not too many chances being created. Lahm pushing podolski back, Ozil being pushed back and not being allowed to play. Arsenal, who usually play with possession, finding it hard.the ox is lively and looks like arsenal's best route to goal

  • 6.49 / 6.59 .... not good :@ C'mon Bavaria ♥♥♥

  • Where is Ozil? Ozil, Where are you???

  • Chamberlain can really go to WC

  • Arsenal are with a 433, ox and cazorla as half winger, ozil RW poldi LW

  • Wish I was wrong but I've strong feeling the serie is already defined , I trust in Gunners spirit but I'm not convinced about the attacker line :(

  • Bayern will win won't be easy though

  • All attack line-up from Arsenal as expected , first goal and game is ON

  • So Wenger reckons Bayern will have the thought in their head that it's job done. If so, and if Arsenal get an early goal, it's game on. But Pep, I think, is wise to this. Hence his playing up the danger Arsenal and Ozil present before the match. And he's right. Arsenal can blow hot and cold, even in one match, but think of how Wigan dispatched the once storming and mighty Man City. Intensity, grit and fight; qualities that can turn a match. I'm sure the Gunners fans hope it's not only Bayern that have these qualities. Should be a cracker. Let's hope no silly sending off ruins it.

  • Impossible task, but as football is not an exact science, I'll cheer for Arsenal with my friend Edukalil

  • Today is the first home defeat of FC Bayern, but I think this will not be enough for Arsenal 1-2!

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Ozil will score today...3-1 :]

  • Well last season it was more less the same, Arsenal needed 3 goals, went to germany to suprise everyone by wining 0-2 in Munich ground. I Think Arsenal is better this season than last, but so is this B.Munich... It will be a great game, whoever wins it. And it's true, that this year in bundesliga there's no team that can be matched with arsenal...Dortmund,shcalke or leverkusen are all below arsenal.. So to Munich will also be a solid test, and to remember that the only defeat in munich's ground came from another english team, M.City. 1-1, or 2-1 or 1-2.

  • Bayern not used to playing teams who actually give effort. Arsenal 3-1 and go through on away goals

  • This game will be ended by draw (1-1). Bayern side already passed this level, so they won't risk it anymore.

  • 4-1

  • MandzuKING 3 goals

  • thoroughly outplayed my butt, we will show our big game credentials and with a bit of luck, maybe even put 3 past those chaps

  • 2-1

  • Arsenal have enough steel to give this one a go. As we know, in the first minutes, before the Ozil penalty turned him into a sagging soufflé, Arsenal showed real guts, and Bayern were knocked back. I feel though that Bayern have another gear to go into, to power into the turn and accelerate out. Can Arsenal sustain that level of intensity for 90 or 120? The Ox, Flamini, Arteta (he won't fluff a penalty if he gets the chance) are key. And Ozil, something tells me this is a grudge match for him. Booed by Germany fans, the object of media and commentary criticism. Can he stay at the level we know he can. This is a show me your big match credentials game. And that is one area that Arsenal have improved this year, even if sometimes inconsistently.

  • Bayern wins

  • 5-5

  • "They were thoroughly outplayed" Are you fucking kidding me?

  • Guardiola knows well this tie is not over and has shown it from the built up to 1st leg, Bayern beat a wounded Arsenal last leg and up to the moment the math was even, Bayern were run by Arsenal in the opening minutes, we have seen often that referees decide these ties so should 11 men stay on the pitch, Bayern should suffer from an intelligent Arsenal side who in this tie have nothing to lose, bookies, media and the general opinion favours Bayern, Arsenal will shock Bayern tomorrow 0:2 and win the tie on penalties. COYG

  • 0-2 COYG

  • Kreizi Bayern are @ 1.01 to Qualify ... Just thought I'd put that out there

  • Bayern to win---> 3-1

  • Bayern to quarter final

  • we need this win come on lads
