Bayern Munich v Arsenal Preview, Champions League, Last 16 1st Leg, 15th February 2017

Bayern Munich head into this game on Wednesday night in front of their home fans at the famous Allianz Arena having had an excellent season on the domestic front in the German Bundesliga where they currently lead the way at the top of the league table with 49pts, having secured 15 wins, 4 draws and 1 defeat from their 20 matches played.

The hosts made it through to this round of 16 having qualified from their group in second place behind Atletico Madrid. Bayern Munich did lose two of their group stage matches with defeats coming away against Atletico Madrid 1-0 and 3-2 away against Rostov.

Arsenal head into this game also having had a very good season so far on their domestic front which is the English Premiership and currently occupy 3rd position in the league table on 50pts having secured 15 wins, 5 draws and 5 defeats from their 25 matches played.

The visitors made it through to this round of 16 having qualified from their group in first place and unbeaten in their six matches played and that record will obviously provide the players with plenty of confidence as they prepare to take on the mighty Bayern Munich on Wednesday night.

Bayern Munich Team News :

Bayern can count on Xabi Alonso after the Spanish midfielder recovered from a knock to the knee that had forced him out of training on Monday.

But Ancelotti seems set to be without central defender Jerome Boateng and winger Franck Ribery, both of whom trained alone in the run-up to the game following recent injuries of their own.

Arsenal Team News :

Lucas Perez (hamstring) has not travelled as he joins Aaron Ramsey (calf) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) on the sidelines.

Granit Xhaka, who has been suspended domestically, returns to the squad as does fit again defender Per Mertesacker.

Bayern Munich v Arsenal Match Predictions, Banker Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets

Bayern Munich are playing some very good football at the moment and Arsenal look to be in for a very difficult evening at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

Arsene Wenger will have plans to try and secure a draw from this game to take back to the Emirates for the second leg and this is probably where he will make a mistake as to try and play for a draw against one of the best teams in Europe would be a bit foolish.

Bayern Munich are masters of the counter attack tactic and they would love nothing more than Arsenal sitting back in numbers in an attempt to secure a point and as such the writing already looks on the wall for this one.

Onto some predictions then and my Banker Free Tip for this game is going to be for Both Teams to Score & Bayern Munich to Win as I am expecting Bayern Munich to score quite early in this match, this will then force Arsenal to attack more and although I do see Arsenal getting one goal in this game, Bayern Munich should prove too strong and win this game by the odd goal or two.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip for this game will be for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski to Score the 1st Goal of the Game as he really is having a great season in front of goal and will be a right handful for the Arsenal defence to contend with.
