Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Mehdi Benatia are unavailable due to injury.


It is an extreme pressure situation for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal and not even a draw will do it for them considering they are playing at home and their next match in the group is away to Bayern Munich. Their key players – Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are in fine form since the last few matches, and Wenger must need them to be on the top of their game when facing a team of Bayern’s stature.

Bayern Munich on the other hand are on a dream run and their star striker Lewandowski is in lethal touch, while the likes of Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa are real match winner.

Comparing the two teams on paper along with the head to head stats and pre-match form, Bayern Munich look like easy winners unless Arsenal pull off something special to ensure their survival in Group F of Champions League.
