UCL: Arsenal v Bayern Munich preview


Arsenal v Bayern Munich preview

Alexis Sanchez is set to start for Arsenal as they attempt to overturn their 5-1 first-leg deficit against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16, but Mesut Ozil is still out with an illness.


The Gunners host the German giants at the Emirates on Tuesday night knowing only a near-miracle will see them make it into the quarter-finals for the first time since 2010.

Sanchez was left out of the starting line-up as Arsenal were beaten 3-1 at Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday, but Arsene Wenger denied there had been a reported bust-up on the training ground involving the Chilean.
 
When asked about the supposed incident, Wenger said: "I am not aware, nothing happened. Nothing at all.

"I explained after the game at Liverpool that I decided to go for a more direct option in the game and that's what happened. That was the unique reason for my decision.

"For the rest, his attitude… He is a committed player, sometimes with excessive behaviour, but you have seen that many times in history in every squad."
 
Ozil, who also missed the trip to Anfield at the weekend, will also be absent in midweek as Wenger confirmed he wasn't yet "ready physically" to be considered.

Aaron Ramsey was an unused substitute at Liverpool following his return from injury and could feature on Tuesday.

Key players Mats Hummels, Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Xabi Alonso were all on the bench for Bayern's win over Cologne on Saturday and all four are set to return.
