Arsenal are 90 minutes away – or maybe 90 minutes plus extra time, then possibly a penalty competition – from their first Champions League semi-final since 2009. But good luck predicting how this match is going to go. Arsenal will take a lot of heart from their impressive start and staunch powers of recovery during last week’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich at the Emirates; they way they ceded early momentum in that see-saw game will worry them as well. They’re coming off the back of a concerning league defeat at home to Aston Villa; Bayern won’t be in the best frame of mind either having relinquished their decade-long grip on the Bundesliga last weekend. Arsenal are hopeful that Bukayo Saka and Martin Ødegaard will both be fit to start, while Bayern are without Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and Alphonso Davies; on the other hand, Harry Kane, Harry Kane and Harry Kane. So it’s up in the air. The Gunners went into this tie as favourites, but having not made the most of their home advantage in the first leg, everything’s poised perfectly for a wonderful evening’s entertainment in Munich. The partial may demur but everyone else can kick back with the popcorn, because this could be great fun. Kick-off at the Allianz Arena is at 8pm BST, 9pm local. It’s on!

important events

16 minutes: Musiala plays a diagonal pass towards Sane on the right. Tomiyasu is everywhere in the store and the ball goes over his head. Sane puffed his chest out, leaping off his marker and into the Arsenal box to win a corner kick.

share

14 minutes: Arsenal are starting to establish some control here. Or maybe Bayern are happy to let them sit back and let them do it, as everything is currently happening in the middle of the park. There is no real danger.

share

12 minutes: Odegaard struggled in the inside left channel and almost released Saka with a cute pass into the box, but Dier and Kimmich narrowly closed the door.

share

10 minutes: Bayern patiently caressed the ball. Suddenly, Dier passes to the right and releases Goretzka… but the offside flag goes up. There’s the old Arsenal defensive organization.

share

8 minutes: Arsenal looked to attack for the first time, with Martinelli almost breaking down the left flank, but Sane, who was covering him, stole the ball. But Arsenal hit back again, Martinelli slipping into space outside the box by Havertz. Martinelli touches the right and aims for a curler to the top right. It’s also spacious. Neuer covered that.

share

6 minutes: Goretzka finds Kane on the edge of Arsenal D. Kane spins without a fuss and goes for the top right of him. It’s also spacious. The former Spurs striker looks determined, as if it’s breaking news.

share

5 minutes: Bayern fans once again cheered at that early attack. That’s all about Arsenal’s plan to wow the stadium in their opening game.

share

3 minutes: Sane explores the bottom right. He penetrated into the box and tried to take advantage of the space to take a shot, but he pushed Kimmich on the overlap. Kimmich dives towards Kane, who tries to shoot into the bottom right corner. The ball swings wildly. That was a risky move.

share

2 minutes: As pyro smoke drifts across the pitch, Arsenal send passes all over the backline. After a while, Bayern fans lose their patience and start whistling furiously and violently. The visitors have made a confident start and will likely be looking to show they are not afraid.

Bayern gets the ball rolling. A wonderful four-stein-in atmosphere in Bierkeller’s spiritual home. “Zinchenko is no good,” points out Charles Antaki. “Fine; I doubt any Arsenal fan would object to this, spooked by his too-frequent defensive lapses. Tomiyasu is the safer option. So this is about how things go. It gives us an indication: if Arteta has to bring him in, things will not go well at all.”

Update date and time

The team is out! Bayern’s current home configuration is white with red trim. Arsenal have adopted third-choice green, which is a very charming early 80s pastiche, with observers of a certain age recalling the likes of Stewart Robson, Peter Nicholas and Brian Talbot. It will definitely give you a Proust-like rush. If UEFA desecrates the works of Georg Frederick Handel, we will rest. Speaking of high culture, Peter O says: “Bayern have had a difficult and up-and-down season. If they got sent off today for a mix-up between their centre-backs, the fans would be furious and furious at Dier and De Ligt.”

It’s Mikel Arteta’s turn to speak to TNT. “We should embrace the opportunity that is in front of us… to show our character and quality… to earn the right to win the match… we are fully motivated to go into the match… to show what we are capable of. ‘To prove a point’ in the semi-finals… It’s important to control your emotions… We’re going to try to do that consistently.”

Thomas Tuchel, the outgoing Bayern manager, said this on TNT Sports. “We can’t do without fans… If there’s any advantage of playing at home, we have to achieve that… We have to take the first step and we need the crowd to kick in. I hope they do…a team approach [to the Champions League, as opposed to the Bundesliga] are more serious, they are playing with a hungrier spirit… We are playing with more discipline… On the flip side, this is something we are very self-critical of. , it’s clear… we have very good results and a team effort throughout the competition… I hope we can move on to the next step, because we need to… Our speed has dropped significantly compared to last week… We lost three of our fastest players who could do damage to any opponent… It’s a big loss, but we have to deal with it… We… Bringing in new players and trying to get back on it as a team… It’s good that we have experience and winners on our team that have already done that… I hope they step up and take responsibility. Masu. ”

Update date and time

Arsenal made one change to their starting lineup from the first leg. Takehiro Tomiyasu was introduced in place of Jakub Kivioglu, who was placed on the bench.

Bayern Munich have made two changes to their players. Alphonso Davies is suspended and Serge Gnabry has a hamstring problem, so Noucea Mazraoui and Rafael Guerreiro will be available. Kingsley Coman, who came on as a substitute in the second half last week, also missed the game due to an adductor issue.

preamble

Arsenal are 90 minutes away from their first Champions League semi-final since 2009, or 90 minutes plus extra time and possibly a penalty contest. But good luck trying to predict how this match will go. Arsenal will be captivated by many for their impressive start and solid resilience in last week’s 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich at the Emirates. They will be worried about the way they conceded momentum in the early stages of a seesaw game. They have bounced back from a worrying defeat in the league at home to Aston Villa. Bayern won’t be in the best of spirits either, having relinquished a decade of dominance in the Bundesliga last weekend. Arsenal will hope that both Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard will be fit to start, while Bayern are without Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and Alphonso Davies. Meanwhile, Harry Kane, Harry Kane, and Harry Kane. So it’s up in the air. The Gunners went into this match as favourites, but although they were unable to make the most of their home advantage in the first leg, everything is set up perfectly for a great evening’s entertainment in Munich. While some may disagree, others can just eat popcorn and relax. Because this is a lot of fun. Kick-off at the Allianz Arena is 8pm BST, 9pm local time. It’s on!
