Welcome to a momentous clash in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals as Arsenal gear up to face Bayern Munich in what promises to be a gripping encounter filled with history and intrigue. For Arsenal, this marks a significant milestone as they make their long-awaited return to the Champions League quarter-finals after a 14-year absence, a testament to the progress made under manager Mikel Arteta. The Gunners have a score to settle with Bayern, having been knocked out by the German giants the last time they graced this stage of the competition.

With Arsenal currently riding high on a wave of momentum, having won an impressive 10 out of their last 11 matches and leading the Premier League, they see this as an incredible opportunity to showcase their resurgence on the grand stage of European football. In contrast, Bayern Munich find themselves in a rare position of vulnerability, struggling domestically and coming off a surprising defeat to Heidenheim in the Bundesliga. As both teams prepare to renew their rivalry, expect fireworks as Arsenal aim to seize the moment and prove themselves against the formidable Bayern Munich.


Team News:

Bukayo Saka is fit and ready to start after he fought through a muscle injury to start, and score, against Brighton. Both Gabriel Magalhães and Jorginho required treatment during the 3-0 win but finished the game in good nick, ready to go. Arsenal’s only injury is Jurrien Timber, still injured after rupturing his ACL in match week one of the Premier League season.

Bayern Munich have not been quite as lucky. They could be without some key players for their trip to the English capital. Manuel Neuer is a doubt, as is key winger Leroy Sané. Kingsley Coman may also sit out as he deals with an injury. Sacha Boey, Tarek Buchmann, and Bouna Sarr are all certainly out but are unlikely to have started regardless.
