Arsenal v Bayern Munich Preview – Arsenal’s defence will be the key but nerves could play a part

Arsenal v Bayern Munich in the upcoming Champions League quarter-final promises to be a clash of titans, pitting two European powerhouses against each other. Arsenal have historically been a mismatch in favour of the Germans, but the roles seem reversed this time, with Bayern Munich considered the underdog against Mikel Arteta’s resilient Arsenal side.

One of Arsenal’s strongest suits is their defense, having conceded the fewest goals among Premier League teams this season. Under Arteta’s guidance, Arsenal boasts a stifling defensive system with Gabriel and William Saliba practically impossible to get past, especially with Declan Rice protecting them from midfield, and The Gunners now have a lineup of physically imposing players under Arteta’s guidance, making them a formidable opponent for any team, including Bayern Munich.

The first leg of the tie will take place at the Emirates Stadium, and with everyone desperate to watch history being made there everyone will be asking how to get tickets for the Arsenal Bayern match, so they can hopefully watch the Gunners get a long-awaited revenge on our former nemesis. Arsenal will look to capitalize on their defensive solidity and assert their dominance before heading to the Allianz Arena for the reverse fixture.

Despite Bayern Munich trailing well behing Leverkusen in their domestic league, they remain strong contenders in Europe, with players like Harry Kane posing a significant threat in attack.

While Arsenal has struggled against Bayern in past European encounters, they are enjoying a successful season under Arteta’s management. With players like Kai Havertz, Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus, Odegaard and Trossard all fit and ready to take advantage of any weakness in Munich’s defence, Arsenal is poised to give Bayern an extremely tough challenge on Tuesday.

Going by Arsenal’s previous round against Porto where it was perfectly obvious that Arteta’s first priority was to stop our opponents from scoring, but with this first leg being played at home we may see a (slightly) more adventurous approach to attempt to actually take a lead before the tough trip to the Allianz Arena. Despite the Gunners super-confidence in our domestic games, even against the Treble winners Man City, Arsenal’s inexperience in the European top leven competition there is a danger that nerves may play a part but hopefully Arteta will have primed his players to play as freely as they do in the Premier League.

Whatever happens, fans can expect an intense battle between two giants of European football, with Arsenal looking to defy their past record and finally assert their dominance against the Germans, especially having the pleasure of watching Harry Kane frustrated at the Emirates for a change!

  1. Going to need the home fans at their very loudest tomorrow. The fact Bayern M have no away support should give us the extra impetuous we need. Let’s just hope the squad turn up and play without fear! COYG!!

  2. A sure win in an emotional night tomorrow, i do not think we’ll get the better of them over two legs though. Development should be prioritized first.

  3. I do hope we turn up on Bayern, there was so much hope against Porto and we nearly went down,
    IMO, Jesus should be in for Saka, Partey for Jorginho, Kiwior for Zinchenko.

  4. Arsenal will win tomorrow, their only way out is a low block set up which the German champion is not accustomed.

    But it is in Munich where this tie wil be decided, our mentality will be tested but Arsenal have weather bigger storm in Manchester.
