Arsenal vs Bayern Munich
Champions League Round of 16, Game 2
Today, 19:45 (GMT)
Emirates Stadium, London
After a night to forget in Bavaria, Arsenal welcome Bayern Munich to the Emirates Stadium for the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie with it all to do.
When Arjen Robben gave Bayern Munich an early lead and the Allianz Arena erupted in the first leg, it looked like being a long night for Arsenal. However, the Gunners got themselves back in the match thanks to a goal from Alexis Sanchez and went in level at half-time.
However, a collapse by Arsenal in the second half, saw them conceded 3 goals in ten minutes and when the match reached the 65-minute mark, they were 4-1 down. There seemed very little fight in the Arsenal team, no one to pick up the players and get them off the floor and they went on to conceded a fifth goal late in the game.
It was a great night for Bayern Munich, who delivered one of their best performances of the season but for Arsenal it was devastating and left Arsene Wenger with a huge task on his hands both in terms of the tie and his job as manager.
1. Betting Odds - The Bookies Choice
With the tie seemingly over as a contest, will Arsenal be more determined than Bayern Munich to get a positive result in this game? Bet365 have installed Bayern as the favourites for this game, priced at 1.95 but will Carlo Ancelotti’s team have the desire to push themselves all out for the win or will they be happy to try and hit Arsenal on the counter-attack?
Arsenal have no choice but to go for the win. In some ways, the pressure will be off as the Gunners are not expected to turn around this massive deficit and they are priced at 3.75 with Bet365 to win this game. The last time Arsenal hosted Bayern they defeated them 2-0, which was in a group game of the Champions League in 2015. In the same season, they lost in Germany 5-1, so an Arsenal win is not out of the question.
The draw is on offer at 4.00 with Bet365.
2. Arsenal vs Bayern Betting Tips - Where the Money Is?
Arsenal must come forward in this game and should get on the score sheet. The Gunners have scored at least once in their last four meetings with Bayern Munich and with nothing to lose following the heavy defeat of the first leg, attacking is surely the only option. However, the more Arsenal push forward the bigger gaps they will leave for Bayern’s quick forwards to exploit and there is a good chance both teams will score in this game. Both teams to score and the match to end in a draw is 4.33 with Bet365.
In terms of the tie as whole, it must be considered over following the first leg and even at 26.00 with Bet365, you will be wasting your money backing Arsenal to progress to the quarter-final, something they have failed to do in their previous six attempts.
