Undefeated in nearly five months and riding an impressive 16 games winning streak, Bayern Munchen is on the verge of securing a presence in the quarter finals of the Champions League. Arsenal allowed three goals in the first leg and lost three of the most recent four games, so their chances to rebound in Munchen are insignificant.
Match: Bayern Munchen vs Arsenal
Bet: Under 3 goals
Odds: Bet365 1.98
There are very few people willing to back Arsenal right now to qualify, because they face an impossible task of scoring three goals without conceding one. With an average of one goal scored in the last six games, the Gunners are shifting between Podolski, Walcott and Giroud with little success. Wenger did a fine job in sealing the numerous gaps in the defense, but the offensive woes made this progress downright impossible to notice.
If the hosts would be chasing a home victory by two goals or more, they would probably put up another stellar offensive performance. As they enjoy a comfortable lead following the first leg and have a 20 points gap separating them from Dortmund in the Bundesliga, the only priority is to avoid injuries. Bayern is the third favorite to lift the trophy this year and in order to prevail in what might be an incandescent final against Barcelona or Real Madrid, they will need a squad at full strength.
Wenger needs to avoid another defeat and put up a decent performance in Munchen, but nobody expects him to reverse the first leg result. If Arsenal draws or wins by a narrow margin his effort will be appreciated, but not even a 1-0 defeat would be regarded as a tragedy. The Under 3 goals bet is definitely the best choice right now and in terms of odds, Bet365’s 1.98 are the best in the market.
