Arsenal remain last team to defeat Euro record breaking Bayern

Arsene Wenger's men are still side to last get a positive result in Champions League against Munich, who broke the record for most consecutive wins tonight.

It’s been eight months since Arsenal almost knocked the German champions out of the Champions League, and they remain the only team since that night in March to beat them in the competition.

After Munich went through on away goals after a 3-1 at the Emirates in the first leg of the second round clash, they went on to win the title at Wembley under Jupp Heynckes.

After disposing of Juventus in the quarter-finals with 2-0 wins both home and away, they then decimated Barcelona 4-0 at the Allianz Arena and 3-0 at the Nou Camp before beating Borussia Dortmund 2-1 to lift the trophy.

With Heynckes leaving at the end of the campaign, former Barca boss Pep Guardiola has picked up from where the German left off, winning his first five group games with tonight’s 3-1 win against CSKA Moscow breaking the competition record for most successive victories.

But it should give Gunners fans plenty of confidence if they meet in the later stages this season, given that this year’s side is stronger than the team that were only a goal away from winning the tie overall, thanks to the arrival of Mesut Ozil and the improvements in both Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey’s game.

Would you be confident against Bayern this year Arsenal fans? How far can you go in the competition?
