LONDON, Sporting Alert – Arsenal, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Barcelona are among the top teams in action in the Champions League on Tuesday (20).
In fact, at the Emirates in London, the Gunners will play hosts to the German champions and despite their slow start in the Champions League this season, manager Arsene Wenger is confident of taking a victory on Tuesday.
Arsenal dropped its opening two games in Group F so far and will need to get going if they are to make it through to the knockout round.
The Premier League side has been showing signs of improving at the domestic level recently, but will need to bring over that kind of form into Europe against one of the best teams in club football.
With the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott all producing positive forms in recent weeks, Arsenal, although listed as the underdogs in most Sportsbooks, as reported by Odds Shark, have enough quality to shock the Bundesliga leaders in London.
Bayern Munich, which have won its opening two games of the Champions League this term, are loaded with talents, but there is no doubt that the focus of attention will be on a certain Robert Lewandowski, a man who has been scoring for fun for both club and country.
The Poland striker has scored 22 goals in 16 games for club and country this season and is at 5/2 to score and Bayern Munich to Win in 90-mins, according to Sky Bet.
Two other players Arsenal must watch out for in the Bayern squad on Tuesday are Thomas Muller and Douglas Costa. They have the ability to change a game in seconds.
Even without star player Lionel Messi, FC Barcelona should have too much for FC Bate Borisov to handle.
A big win over the weekend in the La Liga was just the sort of preparation the Spanish champions were hoping for heading into the Group E trip to Borisov Arena.
Brazilian forward Neymar was the leading performer over the weekend – scoring four goals in a 5-2 win over Rayo Vallecano, while Luis Suarez was also on the scoresheet.
In another Champions League game on Tuesday, defending English Premier League champions Chelsea will meet Dynamo Kiev in Group G at Kiev Olympic Stadium.
Jose Mourinho will be without forwards Loic Remy and Pedro, while midfield playmaker Eden Hazard is expected to start after being on the bench against Aston Villa.
Elsewhere, AS Roma will travel to face Bayer Leverkusen, Valencia will host AA Gent and FC Porto tackle Mac Tel Avi.
