Bayern Munich ace Arturo Vidal sends a warning to Arsenal ahead of upcoming clash

Arturo Vidal says his side are ready to take on Arsenal this week.

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal says his side are stronger than Arsenal and will go all out from minute one in their bid to beat them this coming week, The Sun report.

The Gunners kept their slim chances of Champions League progression alive by beating the German champions 2-0 in their last European outing at the Emirates Stadium.

It was a match in which Bayern largely dominated in possession and territory but struggled to break down a superbly defensive Arsenal side who threatened throughout with quick counterattacks.

Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil grabbed the goals that night, yet Bayern star Vidal claims his side were superior and warns the North Londoners they are in for a long night in Munich.

“Yes, of course we were surprised when we lost. We always had the ball and showed we are a stronger team. Now we play at home and we will come out to win from minute one,” he explained.

The challenge ahead:

Arsenal arguably need to go to Bayern and get at least a point, giving them something to build on when they Olympiakos on the final game in Greece in what many expect to be the defining match.

The challenge ahead of them couldn’t be any bigger, with the hosts unbeaten in Munich since last May – losing 1-0 to Augsburg - when they already had the Bundesliga title sewn up.

Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa are a frightening trio to handle while long-standing Arsenal nemesis Arjen Robben may feature after recovering from injury.
