Everytime lots are drawn for UEFA Champions League’s round of 16, it can always be safe to predict an Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich face off, and this season won’t be any different.
Wenger’s Arsenal will travel to Allianz Arena tonight and the fixture is eventful because this will be the fourth time in five seasons that Arsenal have been drawn against Bayern.
In terms of a head-to-head record, Bayern have won 5, drawn 2 and lost 3 out of the last 10 games between these two sides.
Fresh from their 2-0 victory over Hull City, Arsenal will look forward to use their momentum and try to erase haunting memories of their last game against Bayern in 2015, when the Gunners were embarrassed with a 5-1 loss.
In terms of line-ups, Arsenal will have an advantage as Bayern will have to play without Ribery and Boateng. Apart from Granit Xhaka making a possible comeback, Ospina will replace Cech in the goal.
Although Bayern have an upper hand in terms of chances of winning, Arsenal have proven themselves by overturning first leg defeats in the past.
