Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich, 7:45pm UK time.
The UEFA Champions League round of 16 action returns after yesterday's action which saw Manchester City lose 0-2 to Barcelona, and Paris St. Germain's thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen 4-0. Tonight at the Emirates Stadium Arsenal hosts Bayern Munich for a classic England vs. Germany clash.
Both teams are having great respective seasons, with Bayern dominating the Bundesliga's table and Arsenal competing hard in the Premier League's top four. Bayern is coming to the game with high spirits after the 4-0 win over Freiburg last Saturday, which more or less closed the race for the Bundesliga title. Boss Pep Guardiola will have to fare without Holger Badstuber and Franck Ribery, but the team will be relieved by the return of midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger. The Bavarians have conceded only two goals in their last nine matches played in all competitions.
Arsenal's confidence will be high too after they beat Liverpool 2-1 in the FA Cup Sunday. However, boss Arsene Wenger has his share of injuries to care for with players like Aaron Ramsey, Thomas Vermaelen and Theo Walcott on the bench. Bayern ex Lukas Podolski is expected to sit on the bench as well and make way for Santi Cazorla. The Gunners will surely draw inspiration from counterparts Manchester City's victory over Bayern in December which exposed a German vulnerability in the back.
