Bayern Munich Looks To Continue Near Perfect Season Against Arsenal

Bayern Munich will square off against Arsenal tomorrow at Emirates Stadium in London. The squad has dominated all of their opponents thus far, in both the Bundesliga and Europe. Bayern Munich, who has scored 37 goals already this season, will attempt to extend its near perfect season.

Pep Guardiola’s squad has looked unstoppable this season, boasting an array of talent at every position. Robert Lewandowski has performed better than any striker in the game this year. Manuel Neuer, the best goalkeeper in the world, alongside the rest of Bayern Munich’s adept defenders will look to squash any positive momentum Arsenal currently has. Munich has only conceded 4 goals this season.

Arsenal has played extremely well in recent weeks and seem capable of something special. They recently demolished Manchester United in 20 minutes of unstoppable attacking football, with a 3-0 win. They followed up this performance with another 3-0 win over Watford.

However, Arsene Wenger’s side has faced their fair share of letdowns as well, losing very winnable games against Olympiakos and Dinamo Zagreb.

Bayern Munich is coming off a 1-0 win on Saturday over Werder Bremen. This was the first game this season that Lewandowski failed to score a goal. Although in that match he should have won a penalty. The Poland international has scored 16 times in 12 games and remains the number one threat to Arsenal entering tomorrow’s match.

Here is what the players have to say about the match:

Theo Walcott:

“Playing against Bayern and their quality is of course going to be a challenge for us, but we are at home with our support and we need a similar sort of performance like we had against Manchester United.

“We know we can beat anyone and we are going to be completely ready for this one. We need to move on from the first couple of results in the Champions League.”

Philipp Lahm:

“Anybody who knows about football also knows that Arsenal are better than the way they have started this season in Europe, with two defeats.

“They have got some very, very dangerous individuals and certainly it is not going to be easy, but we are ready. We take all of our opponents seriously, otherwise you don’t win nine games in a row in the Bundesliga.”
