Lewandowski: If Bayern Play Well, Arsenal Won't Have Chances

Arsene Wenger revealed that he will start with David Ospina in goal. Although they've not been at their best under Carlo Ancelotti, this group of players is clearly still capable of putting together some devastating spells.

There is a lack of fight, a lack of intensity from the team at crucial periods, which must be reflective of the manager as he appears to accept certain players, or should I say certain style of players. "We made everything wrong, the fifth goal shows that".

And yet for all their problems, Bayern are seven points clear in the table and still have plenty of gas in the tank. Having briefly been embroiled in a title battle with the controversial upstarts Red Bull Leipzig, Bayern have produced some chaotic performances and been short of their dominant selves.

Its not like Bayern are ice cold coming into this encounter, either.

Because of that run, Wenger has again seen a minority of fans calling for him to leave, with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.

Lewandowski's goalscoring exploits were mentioned in a post by the official Champions League page, noting that he has scored 30 goals in just 33 matches for club and country this season.

They regained their one-goal advantage though Lewandowski, who rose above Shkodran Mustafi to head Philipp Lahm's cross into the corner, but things only got worse for the visitors.

Netanyahu opposed United Nations post for former Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad
Fayyad had previously served as the Palestinian Authority's prime minister from 2007 to 2013 and twice as its finance minister. Fayyad, he insisted, was chosen "solely" on his "recognised personal qualities and his competence for that position".

The Gunners have recent experience of Bayern. I want to laugh at them and their silliness, ideologies, bitterness, and Spursiness, not watch them celebrate against the best of the best that Europe's got to offer.

Bayern stands in his and Arsenal's way, however. The key is to close down the spaces between their lines and avoid Alonso or Thiago playing through passes behind their defence.

And a final word about the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.

"I don't know the internal ongoings of Bayern Munich, but I think it was not the plan that the information of Phillip's retirement came out during the DFB-Pokal game against Wolfsburg", said Tarnat. In 2008 and 2009 English clubs accounted for 3 of the 4 Champions League semi finalists.

Wenger also suggested Mesut Ozil would start on Wednesday after he said the German World Cup victor was lacking confidence in recent games.

The Champions League is upon us again, and whether it is Bayern Munich or Barcelona, Arsenal has a tendency to falter at this stage of the knockout tournament and the omens leading into these next rounds are not good.

"Maybe he will find confidence back as well, because he misses chances".
