In the second match of this pair, Bayern Munich hosts Arsenal at Allianz Arena in Munich. Despite some controversial referee decisions in the first match, the teams still put on a spectacular show, with 4 goals scored and many moments created in front of both nets. The second match will become the test for resilience mainly for Arsenal, as the team is still embedded in the Premier League competition, while Bayern concentrates only on the Champions League match. The last and the only time Arsenal won at Munich was 11 years ago, in the second match of 1/8 finals and it is worth noting that Mikel Arteta probably remembers this game, as he spent the entire game on the pitch.

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal Preview 

Bayern Munich Preview

Bayern, unlike Arsenal, has already lost the Bundesliga title to Bayer, and can afford using massive rotations in the weekend matches. Moreover, Bayern played against Cologne on Saturday (2-0), given Thomas Tuchel’s men one extra day to recover. With the sudden injury of Kingsley Coman, who won’t play anymore this season, the key players like Manuel Neuer, Leroy Sane and Jamal Musiala, are ready for the match against Arsenal. Thomas Tuchel, despite his failure at Munich, knows how to win big matches and, most importantly, how to win titles even in the pressing atmosphere, which he showed at his tenures in Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund.

Arsenal Preview 

Arsenal, on the other hand, has to withdraw the immense pressure of competition with Liverpool and Manchester City, teams who have a way more balanced squad and more opportunities to rotate squad in certain situations. Despite Mikel Arteta’s bravado, Arsenal is evidently struggling and it is possible that the team will have to choose what to pursue - the first trophy of the Premier League since the 2003/2004 season, or the first ever win in the Champions League. All of the key players were in the starting line-up against Aston Villa on Sunday, and it is hard to expect them to be 100% in the match against Bayern. The mood in Arsenal’s camp is also far from perfect, as the team suffered a setback in the match against Aston Villa (0-2) and it will be extremely difficult to keep up with Manchester City’s 2-points advantage.

Betting Tips for Bayern Munich vs. Arsenal

Bayern Munich Draw No Bet

Bayern knows what to rely on in the upcoming match - the team had an extra day for recovery, it did not play as intensive match as Arsenal, and its coach, despite failures in Bundesliga, is way more experienced than Arteta when it comes to the Champions League nights. Moreover, Allianz Arena is still a fortress for the team - Bayern has not lost for 14 home matches in the framework of the Champions League. Unibet gives 1.84 for this Bayern Munich vs Arsenal prediction.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams’ defences are not impeccable which was evident in the match at Emirates. Bayern in this season has the ability to concede in almost every match and Arsenal could have scored way more than 2 goals in the first match. At the same time, figures such as Harry Kane and Leroy Sane will always speak in favour of scoring into David Raya’s net. Bayern Munich vs Arsenal odds for this outcome, as defined by Unibet, are 1.58.

Harry Kane to Score at Any Time 

With the absence of Serge Gnarby and Kinglsey Coman, Harry Kane, Leroy Sane, and Jamal Musiala are the key players behind the Bayern’s attack. Scoring in the first match, Harry Kane again showed that Arsenal is among his favourite clients, securing 15th goal in 18 clashes against his childhood club. During his career, only Leicester City (20) and Everton (16) suffered more from the striker’s foot. For this Bayern Munich vs Arsenal tip, Unibet gives 2.30.
