Arsene Wenger’s team heading for defeat at the Allianz Arena and a Champions League exit
Jose Mourinho is among those who feel that Arsenal can still turn this Champions League tie on its head, although the Gunners blew their chance in the first leg when Mesut Ozil missed a first-half penalty before Wojciech Szczęsny was sent off and the Pole will miss Tuesday night’s tie.
Aaron Ramsey is still on the mend and Jack Wilshere is out for several more weeks to make this tie a very tall order and Bayern Munich will be keen to avoid the same complacency that allowed their English opponents to get within a goal of knocking them out last term.
Paddy Power free bet offer a best price 1/3 about Pep Guardiola’s side winning in ninety minutes again, with the Bundesliga title already wrapped up thanks to 22 wins and 2 draws from 24 games played, with Munchen having landed a 6-1 win at Wolfsburg on Saturday.
Bayern are scoring for fun and it’s hard to see how the Gunners are going to prevent this team from finding the net, with Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic helping themselves to weekend braces.
Mandzukic has scored in five of his last six matches and looks a decent shout at 7/2 with Ladbrokes to find the net first, with the visitors having to go on the front foot against the European champions and that could backfire spectacularly.
This is a clinical Bayern machine under Guardiola and odds of 5/6 with BetVictor are available that the home side lead at half-time and full-time, with a 5-1 correct scoreline on offer at 40/1 with betway and we may well see the floodgates open here.
Arsenal are 9/1 to repeat their victory of last season at the Allianz Arena and they will be encouraged by the way that Manchester City battled back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 during the group stage although the absence of Theo Walcott, Wilshere and Ramsey is a big negative.
You can get enormous odds of 33/1 with Paddy Power that the Gunners qualify although this should be plain sailing for a team who are hot favourites to win the Champions League again this term.
