What will go down in the second leg as both teams look to make the semi-final.

Head-to-Head History and Previous Encounters

This is a fixture that has favoured Bayern in recent encounters with the German club eliminating Arsenal from the Champions League two times in the last ten years.

This included a brilliant demolition from Bayern Munich in 2017 when they defeated Arsenal 10-2 on aggregate.

  • 07/03/17 UCL Arsenal 1 – 5 Bayern Munich
  • 15/02/17 UCL Bayern Munich 5 – 1 Arsenal
  • 04/11/15 UCL Bayern Munich 5 – 1 Arsenal
  • 20/10/15 UCL Arsenal 2 – 0 Bayern Munich

Overall, the teams have met 14 times with Bayern winning seven, Arsenal five, with two draws.

Tactical Analysis and Key Matchups

Mikel Arteta and Thomas Tuchel are two of the sharpest managers in Europe and this will be a meeting of two great tactical minds.

Bayern are far behind Leverkusen in the Bundesliga so Tuchel may prioritise this competition in what will be his final season in Munich.

Both sides like to keep the ball and there’ll be an early battle for possession that Arsenal must win as Bayern have a variety of ways of playing.

If Bayern concede the ball for the majority of the game, then they’ll have the option of going direct to Harry Kane if the Englishman can overcome a recent injury.

For Arsenal, the pressure of a big title race with Liverpool and Manchester City could play on their minds and Bayern will be looking to exploit any weakness against a team they usually perform well against.

Player Form and Impact

Both sides are entering the game in superb form although Bayern have endured some misery this season on the homefront with Bayer Leverkusen surprising them in Germany.

Arsenal are on a brilliant run but there have been some small wobbles in recent weeks with mediocre performances against Brentford and FC Porto, where they were fortunate to get past both sides.

Harry Kane will be the player everyone will be watching and if the England forward is in his usual top form, Arsenal will need Gabriel and William Saliba to be at their best.

For Arsenal, Declan Rice will need to cover some ground to stay on top of Munich. If he and Martin Odegaard can keep the ball, then Arsenal can hurt teams with Bukayo Saka being their main goal threat.

Predictions and Expectations

Both sides will be confident of progression if they’re both at their best, but this will be a tight encounter that will require the two legs to decide it.

With Bayern hosting the second leg, they have to be considered slight favourites as they’ll know their brilliant support can get them over the line.

For a prediction, expect Arsenal to take a slender advantage into the second leg, but it’ll be Bayern who go through.
