In another quarter finals of UEFA Champions League, Arsenal will meet with Bayern. Arsenal, after a win over Porto in penalty shootout, is back to Champions League quarter finals for the first time since 2009. Bayern, on the other hand, is a frequent participant in the decisive matches of the tournament. Despite that the teams have not met for a long time in official competition, the memories of the last three consecutive humiliating matches are still fresh in the minds of Gunners’ fans. These three matches ended with the same score - 5-1 and taking revenge over Bayern amid the current weak season of the Germans will certainly be at the backbone of the upcoming matches.

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Preview 

Arsenal Preview

Mikel Arteta was in the starting lineup in 2013, when Arsenal got their second win over Bayern in the last 8 official matches. Amid this match, the situation is slightly different, with the Gunners fighting for the Premier League title and are unbeaten in the last seven matches. It is also worth mentioning that Arsenal did not concede a single goal at Emirates during this Champions League campaign. At the same time, the team’s resources are limited and tough competition with Liverpool and Manchester City is taking its toll in the Champions League, which became evident in two matches against Porto. Arteta’s men at times looked tired and overloaded, which raises the question how the team will manage to pass through Bayern, who is still among the best European teams even in sight of the poor performance in Bundesliga.

Bayern Munich Preview 

It is a well-known fact that Bayern has the worst season in years. However, the team’s class and quality of the players should be dismissed that easily. The resilience has already been shown in the second leg with Lazio, with Bayern crushing Italians 3-0. Arsenal still lacks experience of playing on the highest European level, while Bayern is synonymous with being among the favourites of UEFA Champions League in every season. Another good news for Bayern is that despite Tuchel’s doubts, key players such as Manuel Neuer, Leroy Sane, Kingsley Coman, returned to training and are likely to take part in the game. Within this news, only Bouna Sarr and Sacha Boey will miss the match, allowing Tuchel to place the most optimal starting lineup for the match.

Betting Tips for Arsenal vs Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich Handicap +1

With Bayern currently considered as underdogs in this pair, it is too early to miss out on Thomas Tuchel’s team. In the current situation, when Arsenal has to go through a difficult schedule and lack of squad depth, Munich can draw its full attention to the Champions League, given that the Bundesliga trophy is out of reach. Arsenal has already shown its problems in matches with Porto and Bayern can easily capitalise on them even despite injuries and low team morale. For this Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich prediction, Unibet gives 1.61.

Both Teams To Score

Arsenal scored in 18 of the 20 home matches this season, and when they did not, it was because they wasted too many chances. Many teams conceded at Emirates, including Manchester City, Liverpool, Tottenham and others. Bayern will probably add to this list, but will be able to respond. The Londoners' defence has problems in matches against the top teams. In addition to the strongest clubs in the Premier League, Newcastle, Burnley, Wolverhampton, West Ham and Fulham scored at Emirates. Arsenal vs Bayern Munich odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.66.

Harry Kane to Score at Any Time 

Harry Kane comes back to North London for the first time after leaving England last summer. Being among the best Bayern players this season, he has already shown that his goalscoring credentials are applicable in any part of the football world, with 32 goals in Bundesliga and 6 goals in the Champions League. During his years in Tottenham, Arsenal was among his favourite victims, with 14 goals scored in 19 matches against the Gunners. Unibet gives 2.95 for this Arsenal vs Bayern Munich tip.
