Arsenal are in impressive form as they face Bayern Munich in Germany tomorrow. Although injuries have seen key players miss out, Wenger will still be hopeful that the Gunners manage to get something from this fixture. Theo Walcott will be a big miss,as his pace in the home fixture against Bayern proved critical in stretching the Bayern defence. Giroud will offer a different kind of threat but the Germans will more likely be happier seeing Giroud on the teamsheet rather than Walcott.
They are one of Europe’s top sides. It is a new game after we lost in London. This is a match we want to win in front of our supporters. We have another 90 minutes to move closer to qualifying for the next round. Arsenal like to keep the ball and attack. Look at all the players they have on the pitch – they are players to keep the ball and perhaps try long passes to [Olivier] Giroud. We will have to adapt our defence as they will want to play their type of game. We want to press them high so they can’t play out of defence. I always tell my teams to attack as much as possible and to create as many chances as possible.
– Pep Guardiola
We will try to keep on the same path. We want to see the performance that we showed against them in the last game. We want a positive result again. We continue to develop as a team. We did well the last few weeks and that should give us the belief to achieve something tomorrow. Tomorrow will be a good opportunity to show that we have developed as a team.
We are all in for an exciting match with Bayern suddenly looking weak and with Arsenal in high flying form.
