Our match prediction:
Bayern Munich will host round 4 in group F of the Champions League against Arsenal. Both teams are currently in top form. Bayern Munich is the leader in the Bundesliga and with the help of Arjen Robben the title will be prolongated as soon as possible. Arsenal on the other hand is still in the title race and holds the same amount of points as Premier League leader Manchester City. In the first leg between both teams Arsenal managed to beat Bayern Munich surprisingly 2-0. The English team showed it's class by defending solid and waiting for the right moment to force an attack, despite everyones expectations Arsenal managed to keep the possibility to reach the next round. We predict Bayern Munich to keep the 3 points at home, Arsenal was able to stunt in London but won't be strong enough to stunt again. Bayern Munich will have most of the ball possession and will definitely be more accurate in the box.

Highlighted Team (Arsenal):
Arsenal are regarded as one of the best English teams. The Gunners have won 12 FA Cup trophies, 13 league titles and two League Cups, but they have yet to lift the Champions League trophy. Arsene Wenger’s team were on the verge of beating Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, but they eventually failed to win the prestigious title. Arsenal used to play their homes at Highbury, but in 2006 they moved to the Emirates Stadium. The capacity of the stadium is 60,260. The Gunners won their last Premier League trophy back in 2004, with the capital club going through the season without a single loss. The likes of Thierry Henry, Denis Bergkamp and Robert Pires were part of the team back then, but Arsenal have not won the league trophy ever since. Arsenal was founded by Woolwich munitions workers as Dial Square back in 1886. It is well known that Tottenham Hotspur are Arsenal’s fiercest rivals and there have always been fireworks when the two local rivals meet in the North London derby.
