Bayern Munich vs Arsenal: Probable Lineups

Arsenal travel to the daunting Allianz Arena on Wednesday night for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich, hoping to avoid another European heartbreak.

First Leg Ends in Dramatic Draw

Last week’s first leg at the Emirates Stadium was a thrilling affair, but Mikel Arteta’s men will be left ruing defensive lapses that allowed Bayern Munich to snatch a 2-2 draw. Despite missing key players and a raucous home crowd for Arsenal, the German giants showed their experience to come away with a valuable result.

Injury Woes Plague Both Teams

Both managers will be sweating on the fitness of some key players. Bayern Munich will be without first-choice left-back Alphonso Davies due to suspension, while injuries to Gnabry, Coman, and potentially Sane could further weaken their attack. Arsenal also have injury concerns, with captain Martin Odegaard a slight doubt after missing some training time.

Defensive Dilemma for Arsenal

Arsenal’s full-back positions are a particular cause for concern. Oleksandr Zinchenko’s performance in the first leg was shaky, and Takehiro Tomiyasu could be brought in to provide more defensive solidity against Bayern’s dangerous wingers.

Predicted Lineups

Bayern Munich: Neuer; Kimmich, Dier, De Ligt, Guerreiro; Laimer, Goretzka; Muller, Musiala, Sane; Kane

Arsenal: Raya; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Odegaard, Jorginho, Rice; Saka, Havertz, Martinelli
