Arsenal vs Bayern Munich Betting Preview
This Wednesday Arsenal face Bayern Munich in the Champions League and on paper things look very bad for the Gunners. Last year Munich beat Arsenal 3-1 on their way to winning the competition beating Borussia Dortmund in the final.
Looking at the betting odds it seems that the bookies expect things to go much the same this year. William Hill has given arsenal odds of 19/5 to win while Bayern Munich has odds of 3/4.
However, Arsenal could put up a fight; the team have defeated Bayern Munich in the past and are familiar with the German style of play. Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski are all likely to play for Arsenal and bring with them valuable inside knowledge of the opposition.
Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker could bring a lot to this match. He knows the Bayern players well and will not be intimidated by them in anyway. In recent times Mertesacker has made Arsenal one of the most defensively solid teams in the Premier League. Coupled with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain who has been performing brilliantly in recent games, there is a fair chance that Arsenal could cause a minor upset and make their fans extremely happy.
