Arsenal face a mammoth task to avoid being knocked out of this season’s Champions League by Bayern Munich after losing their last 16 first leg 2-0 at home.
Despite the manner in which the reigning European champions dispatched the Gunners, the French manager has been rather complimentary about another team when asked about the frontrunners for the tournament.
Wenger stated that he feels that Real Madrid are as good as anyone at the moment and will take some stopping.
“Real Madrid right now are on a par with anything… For me, this is the team with the best balance,” he told Eurosport.
Madrid pummeled Schalke 6-1 away from home in the first leg of their tie, with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in excellent form at the moment.
