Bayern are closing in inexorably on the Bundesliga crown, and now aim to push on in the Champions League. Thanks to a 3-1 victory away to Arsenal in the Round of 16 first leg three weeks ago, Jupp Heynckes’ side are favourites to progress to the last eight in the return at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening (Live in English from 8.45 pm on fcbayern.de free Web Radio).
“We’ve put ourselves in a great position and we’d certainly be stupid to let it slip from our grasp now,” commented midfielder Toni Kroos on the eve of the clash with the Gunners. The side lying fifth in the English Premier League must score at least three times in Munich to avoid exiting Europe’s elite club competition in the first knockout round for the third season in a row.
