Arsenal have it all to do this evening at the Allianz Arena following the 2-0 defeat in the first leg in London.

The Gunners have several reasons to be confident with a good result against Everton last weekend, Mesut Ozil’s return to form and the fact they played superbly in this fixture last season.

Bayern will also be confident as they have a tremendous home record and a very good squad, which has allowed Pep Guardiola to name a very strong side for this game.

Bayern are the current European Cup holders and are looking to make history by retaining the trophy at the first time of trying. They’ve scored a staggering 72 goals in the Bundesliga this season while conceding just 11.
