Three ways in which Arsenal can beat Bayern Munich
With the resumption of the serious business in Europe’s elite club competition, the Champions League, Arsenal face the daunting task of going toe to toe against current holders Bayern Munich at the Emirates on Wednesday, a clash which promises to be an absolute enthralling and lip smacking encounter. Both the teams met in the same stage as last year, when Bayern won 3-1 in the first leg at the Emirates and despite losing in Munich, the Bavarians went on to ultimately take the crown in what was a record breaking season for Jupp Heynckes’ men. Lot has changed since, now with Pep Guardiola at the helm, the Bavarian are a more stronger unit and much fitter to steam roll past anyone that come their way. However is there a hole in Bayern’s engine which Arsene Wenger and his boys can exploit? We here at Soccersouls provide three ways in which the Gunners can gun Guardiola’s goons.
1. Throw Oxlade Chamberlain and Santi Cazorla to Rafinha and David Alaba
Bayern are in amazing form in Bundesliga, beating teams by large margin of goals but I don’t feel any such score line will repeat itself at Emirates. The German team’s full backs in David Alaba and Rafinha are perhaps the weakest links, with both of them moving out of positions and leaving space behind when barging up front. Wenger should look to field Chamberlain and Cazorla, two of Arsenals’s speedy tricksters on the flanks using them interchangeably, putting pressure on Bayern’s defensive flanks and outnumbering the central defenders with a spare man in midfield joining in may do the trick for the gunners.
