Bayern Munich vs Arsenal : UEFA Champions League Preview

Arsenal F.C. travel to FC Bayern Munich hoping to stay in their UEFA Champions League tie. 

Bayern Munich vs Arsenal predictions, betting tips and match preview

Arsene Wenger will play David Ospina in goal against FC Bayern Munich on Wednesday night after claiming Arsenal F.C. would not be at the Allianz Arena (Munich, Germany) were it not for the goalkeeper’s form earlier in the season.

Arsenal F.C. face a tough challenge as they come up against the reigning Bundesliga champions for the 1st leg of their UCL round-of-16 tie.

Arsene Wenger’s side have been dumped out at this stage of the UCL competition in the previous 6 seasons, including twice by Bayern Munich, but will be hoping to make use of the small advantage of playing the 1st leg away from home.

That is the reward for topping their group, in which Ospina played all 6 matches as Arsenal F.C. remained undefeated against Paris St Germain, Basel and Ludogorets.

Arsene Wenger has kept faith in the Colombia international, opting to field him against FC Bayern Munich rather than revert back to usual first-choice goalkeeper Petr Cech, as he did at this stage last UCL season against Barcelona.

“I have nothing to hide there, it will be David Ospina because of the quality of his performances,” he replied when asked which goalkeeper would start the match.

“We are in the last 16 and finished top of the group. If you analyze his performances in every single match we are where we are because of his great performances.”

Arsene Wenger also suggested Mesut Ozil would start on Wednesday after he said the German World Cup winner was lacking confidence in recent matches.

Mesut Ozil has not scored since December 10 and has been a peripheral figure for many of Arsenal F.C’s last fixtures, including the 2 recent defeats to Watford and Chelsea.

“I will pick the team tomorrow morning,” he said when asked if Mesut Ozil would play.

“I have no doubt that we play in Germany and Mesut Ozil is highly focused on having a good performance tomorrow.

“Mesut Ozil has been playing for us for many years now and he knows perfectly our team and he knows how we want to play in every match. So it is an important match.”

Mats Hummels expects “world-class” Mesut Ozil to be in the Arsenal F.C. team.

The pair lifted the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and know each other well from their time on the international stage.

“For me it was a surprise that Mesut Mesut is doubtful to play,” said the FC Bayern Munich defender.

“He is a world-class player and someone who is always put on the field. I think he will be on the pitch tomorrow from the first minute because he is a class player.

“We have to make him play not good tomorrow because that would be bad for the result. Every offensive player has their good and bad moments.

“It is not something you can project on one player. There is not one player who delivers in every match.”

Bayern Munich predicted lineup: Neuer; Lahm, Martinez, Hummels, Alaba; Vidal, Alonso, Kimmich; Muller, Thiago; Lewandowski

Arsenal predicted lineup: Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Coquelin; Alexis, Ozil, Walcott; Giroud
