Champions League Group Stage: Bayern Munich vs. ArsenalPublished November 4, 2015 by Sol FH
Bayern Munich vs Arsenal live tonight at 19:45 GMT with live betting and pre match odds at bet365 Sports.
Arsenal shocked Group F leaders Bayern Munich two weeks ago, beating the German powerhouse 2-0 at home. Tonight, Bayern will be looking to get some payback at Allianz tonight and secure their spot in the next round of Champions League action.
Arsenal was the first team to beat Bayern in the Group stage, but tonight they will need to win on-the-road without Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whom are out with injuries. Mathieu Debuchy will be filling in for Hector Bellerin and Arsene Wenger is confident about his lineup.
Wenger must make a crucial decision whether or not to start newly acquired Joel Campbell, after the Costa Rican found the back of the net in his first appearance against Swansea last week. If Arsenal can win tonight, they will move that much closer to the next round, but they will also need to win at least one of the two remaining matches after tonight.
Is Bayern Too Strong?
Bayern Munich was ousted from the Champions League semifinals last year, losing to eventual champions Barcelona. They lead the Bundesliga and their Group in the Champions League. They did however drop their first three points of the Bundesliga regular season after a draw against Eintracht Frankfurt last week, and fans are questioning whether or not the squad is 100% healthy for tonight.
Bayern will be without Mario Gotze, but they could see the return to Medhi Benatia.
