UCL: Arsenal need to believe in conquering Munich

New Delhi: Arsenal will need to stop Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich in order to keep their hopes of progressing safe.

A double over the German champions in the Group Stage is a dream scenario for any club and Arsenal need to believe in conquering Munich.

Wednesday night will see the two teams clash at the Allianz Arena and Arsenal under Arsene Wenger will hope to replicate their form against Bayern in London a fortnight ago.

Arsenal beat Bayern 2-0 at the Emirates earlier to stay in contention for progressing to the next round. Tonight the tie is expected to be tougher and Arsene Wenger feels the team's recent form should give them enough belief and confidence.

Arsenal had beaten Bayern in Munich in the 2012-13 edition of the Champions League and bowed out after away goal rule difference.

That win back then can serve as a reminder for Bayern who need to be wary of the visiting side playing on the counter.

Bayern manager Pep Guardiola has identified attack and a high pressing game, as the best option to keep Arsenal at bay.

A loss for Wenger's side could virtually end their hopes for qualifying in the knock-out stages.

Tuesday night saw English teams win on the big occasion and Arsenal would want to continue in the same vein.
