Bayern Munich v Arsenal

Arsenal's French manager Arsene Wenger watches from the stands at the start of the second half during the English Premier League soccer match between Arsenal

"I am happy to play Bayern one more year", he said in January after signing a one-year extension. "That will be the key".

However, the Germans have some added motivation after Philipp Lahm announced last week that he would retire at the end of the season and the talismanic captain would love to bow out as a European champion again.

Midfield star Xabi Alonso is an injury concern for Bayern Munich ahead of their Champions League last 16 home leg against Arsenal after being hurt in Monday's training session.

In the soccer news, The Guardian's Jonathan Wilson works through the issues with Leicester City's star players that are having a tough season in the Premier League.

Arsenal fans are already growing increasingly tired of seeing their team's season play out in an all-too-familiar manner in the Premier League.

The idea of Arsenal going to face Bayern Munich without Mesut Ozil in the starting lineup would, objectively, sound absurd.

The Arsenal boss has now called on the former Real Madrid star to start scoring goals that will help the Gunners this season in the Premier League. Speaking after the 2-0 win over Hull last Saturday, he admitted Ozil's issues are a problem right now. However, if Ancelotti has shown one thing in his coaching career, it is that he is capable of getting his team to peak in the Champions League knockout stages. Wenger has now been the figurehead at Arsenal for 21 years, however, the last 13 years have been tumultuous for the Gunners who have won just 2 FA Cups during that period.

"You can't do what we did against Watford, where we gifted them two goals, or what we did against Chelsea, where we lacked that bit of intensity at times".

United have twice failed to qualify for the Champions League in the three years since, and are on track to miss out again this season as they now sit sixth in the table.
