With Arsenal having only managed to keep hold of the ball for less than 25 percent of the game against Bayern Munich in the home tie, not many people are expecting the Gunners to go and dominate the game in Germany. But that does not necessarily mean that we will completely change our tactics.
You would think that winning every game of the season before finally losing to Arsenal in that Champions League game a couple of weeks ago would mean that our victory at the Emirates would be like water off a duck’s back to the German champions Bayern Munich.
There have been a few articles in the football media in recent days about who will be the manager to take over the reins of Arsenal when Arsene Wenger does call it a day, or get sacked which seems about as likely as U2 sacking Bono as the lead singer.
I don’t think that Arsenal have ever been in the position of losing their first two Champions League Group matches ever before, but all it means is that the Gunners will now be desperate to get their first three points on the board. Pep Guardiola thinks this will simply make Arsenal even more dangerous tonight. “In this situation they have an advantage because for them they have to win.” The Spaniard said. “When that happens with these kind of players, in this sort of club, with this sort of history, they are going to make the best performance possible so I cannot expect a team that does not fight 90 minutes, fight for each other and in this situation they are in an advantage.”
Wenger finally going for Mario? by MP
Hi, I am a half English Arsenal fan living in Spain, and I have been following the Gunners for many years, but I find that the rumours reported on JustArsenal never seem to match up with the news in the Spanish media. At the moment the Spanish press are reporting that “El Arsenal activa la opción Mario Götze” e.g. they are now ready to match Bayern Munich’s asking price for the German international Mario Gotze.
