Mission Impossible: Arsene’s Boys Seek To Overcome The Mighty Bayern

As Carlo Ancelotti and his boys visit the north London team on Tuesday 7th for the champions’ league return leg to completely finish Arsenal, Wenger believes the Gunners could overturn things by Miracles. Question is, is this mission possible? Even by miracle?

This is the 12th time the two meet in the champions league with Bayern dominating victories. The German side has won six of the previous 11 games whilst Arsenal won three, the rest is draw. In the first leg, Bayern Munich beat Arsenal 5-1 courtesy of Robben, Lewandowski, Alcantara ×2, Thomas Muller and Sanchez for Arsenal.

History has it that no club has progressed in a champions league knockout tie after losing the first leg by 4 + goals. Four of Arsenal’s last six Champions League defeats at Emirates Stadium have come in the last 16, with two of those losses coming at the hands of Bayern Munich in 2013 and 2014.

In the first leg, Arsenal failed to record a single shot on target in the second half, compared to Bayern’s nine, this after firing shots on target in the first half. Only Messi [10] and Edinson [7] Cavani have scored more goals in the competition this season than Robert Lewandowski [6]; the Polish striker has scored in just two of his last 12 away games in the champion’s league however [4 goals in total]

Lewandowski has been directly involved in six goals in seven Champions League games against Arsenal [3 goals, 3 assists], against no other side has he been involved in more goals [also 6 v Real Madrid].

Arjen Robben has now scored in back-to-back Champions league appearances against Arsenal; Only against CSKA Moscow has he scored in more consecutive games [3].

They say history repeats itself which is true however commentators would tell you they have witnessed history changing but in this particular encounter it’s close to impossible for history to change, blatantly history does favor gunners except Miracle could as the Boss said after the defeat to Bayern in the first leg.
