Ruthless Bayern Munich thrash Arsenal in first leg of Champions League tie
Barring their 5-1 thrashing at the Allianz Arena last term, the Gunners have fared well away at the Bavarian giants with a win and draw proving to be ineffective due to first leg results at home.
Bayern Munich had previously eliminated Arsenal in the Round of 16 in the Champions League match-ups in 2005, in 2013 and in 2014.
Despite their lead in the Bundesliga, Bayern have turned in below-par performances in recent weeks and needed two late goals to earn a 2-0 win at relegation-threatened Ingolstadt on Saturday.
Against Bayern on Wednesday we'll welcome Xhaka back into the team who has been serving a 4 match ban following a red card earned against Swansea. It will be a big challenge for us. Still in play, though, is the Champions League quest.
"I have no doubt that we play in Germany and Ozil is highly focused to have a good performance".
Wenger enters this tie with the familiar chorus of trapped rage at his own consistent, but consistently moderate, standards of elite-level success.
At 10/1, the layers are still of the view that Wenger will at least see out the season, when attention may turn to who will take on the daunting task of replacing the most successful manager in Arsenal history.
Trump Comment Ticks Dollar Higher
The president, however, offered no specifics other than citing the need to a lower tax burden on businesses, the report said. Stocks have today built on that momentum, with the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq all marking new all-time highs at the open.
"Yes, we've had bad experiences against them", Wenger said.
The calls for Wenger to make this season his last are growing ever-louder - his side haven't reached the quarter-finals since 2010.
Asked what it took to win this competition, Ancelotti gave a thoughtful response. "The courage is important". Neuer was quick to row back on the suggestion that Arsenal might be a soft touch.
Arsenal is set for another top-four league finish and is still in the FA Cup, but to overcome German champion Bayern, Wenger will need playmaker Mesut Ozil to snap out of his poor run of form. And quibbling about the fact that they have drawn a title favourite yet again in the round of 16 isn't a good enough reason to go a seventh season without making it past the first knockout stage. "You can't just project it on one player".
Hummels was also bullish about the likely reception for the visitors at a ground where Bayern like to start with an attacking swagger. They played very well in the second half and we were a bit unlucky as well.
The teams know each other well, having met six times in the last four years, and Bayern thrashed the Gunners 5-1 in Munich in their previous meeting in November 2015.
His critics wouldn't have been entirely satisfied here, no matter how convincing the second-half display was.
