Bayern Munich – Arsenal – I can not even for one of these giants of European football said to shine in recent years, but Bayern still usually manages to win and not lose for a long time, and the advantage compared to the accompaniment of the championship is growing and they are smiling defense titles. Arsenal held at the top of the table in the English Premier League, but leader escapes them big ten points and it is clear that the title again remain a dream, while the Cup is still present. They had two straight defeats before victory over Hull last weekend, but Bayern has won again with a lot of problems on the primary hosting. Very often, Bayern and Arsenal meet in the Champions League in recent years and more success had the Bavarians, with the Arsenal knew shine and overcome Bayern even in Munich, while in the last tour was convincing 5: 1 for Bayern.
Bayern does not shine and all the games in the second season were so tortured, or their number of points advantage at the top of the table grows and now the first companion flee seven points, which is of course a great advantage and is already becoming evident that will again win the championship title. And in the Cup they reached the quarter-finals and five matches of the season, four times won and tied one. Undefeated been since November last year and watching so there was no reason for concern, but when you look at the way they won the second season, it is clear that they do not shine, and not in God knows what form.
Ingolstadt last weekend won with 2: 0, but the first goal gave the last minute details, and the second in injury time. In the first two rounds of the second part of the Freiburg and Werder away won with 2: 1, Wolfsburg in the Cup at home with 1: 0, while Schalke in Munich drew 1: 1. Coach Ancelotti says only minor changes in the composition and in Ingolstadt have been if the bench was Robben and D.COSTA, but later escaped and created the second goal of his team. Now they will both be in the starting lineup, but still is sidelined defender Boateng.
Probable lineups Bayern: Neuer – Lahm, J.Martinez, Hummels, Alaba – Xabi Alonso Vidal – Robben, Alcantara, D.COSTA – Lewandowski
Arsenal are already practically goodbye to fight for the title, although last weekend managed to reduce the gap to the leader Chelsea to two points, because only a draw against city rivals, while Arsenal beat. However, the difference is still huge ten points and it will be difficult to achieve, but it could have been different if three rounds were not totally unexpected at home lost to Watford 2: 1, and then in the round before last big derby against Chelsea 3 : first These matches have revealed a number of weaknesses in the game “Gunners”, although previously had a nice series without defeat, ending with a convincing away victory over Southampton in the context of the FA Cup, where they hope to win trophies.
In the past few matches coach Wenger can not sit on the bench because of penalties, but it does not apply to the Champions League and now will not have that problem. Right Back Bellerin recovered and already played against Hull when they are not exactly dazzling party won with 2: 0th On the left side instead of Monreale was Gibbs and this was the only change in the composition. Now to midfielder Elneny could find in the composition instead Iwobija, which means that it will still set a slightly more cautious.
Probable lineups Arsenal: P.CECH – Bellerin, Mustafa, Koscielny, Gibbs – Elneny, Coquelin – Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Ozil – A.SANCHEZ
