Arsenal go into this game off the back of a win, which will bode well for the team’s confidence.

The job for Arsene Wenger’s side this evening is simple; keep things tight, stay in the game and try to hit Bayern where it hurts to take an advantage back to the Allianz Arena.

The defence and support both have to be fantastic for the Gunners this evening to try and intimidate their opponents.

As far as the German side are concerned, they will take a lot of confidence from how they played at the Emirates last season securing a 3-1 first leg win.

They have talent all over their team and can hurt Arsenal in several positions. They too need to keep things tight but Pep Guardiola will urge his side to cash in on any prolonged spells of pressure.
