Everybody, even most Arsenal fans, think that the Gunners have no chance at all of beating a star-studded Barcelona side next Tuesday, but then again everybody said exactly the same thing before Bayern Munich came to the Emirates earlier in the season.
Arsenal are being seen as an outside chance at best of being the club that the current boss of Bayern Munich Pep Guardiola moves to in the summer when his current contract runs out at the end of this season. It was originally reported in the football press that it was a straight battle between Manchester United and City but that grew to include Chelsea once they sacked Jose Mourinho and now the Gunners are said to be in the mix as well.
This has been one of those crazy years where us Arsenal fans can always expect the unexpected. We started off by winning every single game in pre-season and breaking Arsene Wenger’s awful record against Jose Mourinho in the Community Shield.
Stop worrying, Arsenal will still qualify by Sam P
After last night’s performance gave us our third defeat in the four Champions League games so far, I am still pretty certain that we will win our two remaining games and qualify for our name to go into the hat for the next round.
Arsenal may be going to the Allianz Arena this evening to face the full force of German organization and discipline in the shape of Bayern Munich, but our own German superstar Mesut Ozil is sure that we can be just as disciplined and clinical to beat the Germans at their own game.
The Arsenal machine keeps on rolling in the league! by KM
Well, well! Having a fine Arsenal weekend are we? Sure we are, because I’d take any sort of a win against Swansea away, let alone a 3:0 one. I mean what a turnaround from the games we played against them last year!
Arsenal were the first team this season to stop the German juggernaut that is Bayern Munich from winning. The fact that we won our Champions League clash with them was fantastic for many reasons, because it kept our hopes of qualifying alive, gave the team morale a huge boost and it might also have sowed a seed in the Bayern players’ confidence.
Arsenal do have some reasons to be optimistic and believe that we can record a famous victory over Bayern Munich tonight, despite the fact that the German club are on an amazing run of form and their strikers Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are on fire.
