Preview: Arsenal vs Bayern Munich – Prediction, Team News, Line-ups

Arsenal will be looking for an advantage when they welcome Bayern Munich to the Emirates Stadium in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie. 

The Gunners beat Porto on penalties in the Round of 16, while the German giants progressed this far following their 3-1 aggregate win over Lazio. 

Match Preview

Arsenal are flying high in the Premier League as they secured top spot in the table after their 3-0 success at Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday. 

Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz and Leandro Trossard were all on target for the visitors as they claimed their 10th league win from 11 top-flight matches in 2024. 

Manager Mikel Arteta will now switch his focus towards the Champions League where they will face Bayern Munich for the 13th time in the European competition. 

Their last three meetings with the Bavarians have only brought humiliation to the Gunners who lost all three matches by 5-1 scoreline. 

Bayern have also won seven of their 12 games with the Premier League giants, losing three and drawing two. 

But Arsenal have gone from strength to strength in the last few years and are now regarded as a formidable force. 

They are expected to give a tough competition to Thomas Tuchel’s side who are struggling for form and confidence recently. 

The six-times Champions League winners suffered a shocking 3-2 loss at Heidenheim last weekend, falling an incredible 16 points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen. 

Leverkusen are now just one win away from clinching the Bundesliga title.

As for Bayern, Gabriel Marusic, Bouna Sarr, Tarek Buchmann, Sacha Boey and Noel Aseko are all in the infirmary and will be missing for the visitors.
