Champions League: Arsenal vs Bayern Munich

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Betting Tip and Predictions. In the 3rd Round in Group F of the UEFA Champions League, Arsenal take on Bayern Munich.

Arsenal started this season in the UEFA Champions League very poor and after two rounds they are standing at the bottom of the table, still without points. Dinamo Zagreb beat them in the first round 2-1, while Olympiakos took all three points at Emirates in the second round, so Arsene Wenger have no choice and looking for a win against Germans. This fixture is sold out, so home side will have the big support in order to achieve their goal and take first point(s) against Bayern Munich. Arsenal have never lost three consecutive games in the Champions League, so they believe that they can stay unbeaten upfront their supporters. Home team won their last three matches in Premier League and they will do their best to repeat that success in this competition.

The confidence level is there – we know exactly what is needed.” – Wenger said. “We have to attack.” – he added.

Bayern Munich are one of the main candidates to win this competition. They are standing at the top of the table with 2 wins, 0-3 against Olympiakos and impressive 5-0 against Dinamo Zagreb at Allianz Arena. In Bundesliga they are dominating – 9 matches, 9 wins. Interesting fact about team from Munich is that they still didn’t conceded a single goal in Champions League this season.

They’re under severe pressure in the Champions League. They need a result against us, but we’re prepared for that.” – said Philipp Lahm for the official Bayern Munich website.

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Betting Tip and Predictions

Bayern have won on their last two visits against Arsenal, so they are looking for another win. Arsenal have nothing to lose and they have to attack as Wenger said which could be very dangerous for their defence. I expect an interesting match between Arsenal vs Bayern Munich and at least three goals.
