Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Champions League - February 19, 2014

0 التعليقات

 Arsenal sit second in the Premier League table and qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup with a 2-1 win over Liverpool on Sunday. They have been especially impressive at the back at home so far with the defensive partnership of Koscielny and Mertesacker being in a perfect working order so far.
Anyway, following a 5-1 demolition by Liverpool the previous week and a nervy performance against Manchester United, Arsenal’s season appeared to be teetering on the edge of sliding to further disappointment.
Wilshere, Rosicky, Cazorla will be expected to come back into the starting line-up. Arteta is suspended for the clash, while new signing Kim Kallstrom, Aaron Ramsey, Theo Walcott and Thomas Vermalen are all sidelined. Giroud is expected to start up front despite some personal problems.
The Bavarians come form a 4-0 win over Freiburg on Saturday. That win extended their advantage over the second-placed Bayer Leverkusen to 16 points. They have won each of their six games after the winter break, conceding just one goal in the process
Against Arsenal, Guardiola could go to a 4-1-4-1 system that he has deployed often this season and make the central midfield even beefier.Franck Ribery misses out as expected, along with Shaqiri and Badstuber.  Robben is the man to watch as he has scored six goals and has carded four assists in his last seven Champions League matches.
Arsenal have lost just three of their 18 Champions League knockout games at home but they have lost their last three home games against German sides.
