Tonights UEFA Champions League, 2nd leg games kick off at 7:45, with a huge game at emirates where the Gooners host Bayern Munich.

Turning the 4 goal deficit will be a monumental task, but if any team can do it, then Arsenal can. At home, Arsenal can be brilliant and if they click into gear they can score as many goals as they need, but a lot will depend on Alexis Sanchez and how he leads the team. An early goal will give them the encouragement they will need to overcome the giants that are Bayern Munich.
