Arsenal v Bayern Munich: The 10 most dangerous Bayern Munich players
We analyse the threats to Arsenal's hopes of progressing in the Champions League
Wednesday 19 February 2014
Arsenal welcome Bayern Munich to the Emirates in the Champions League tonight.
The reigning champions are among the favourites to win the trophy this time around, and despite winning the treble last season, many believe the German outfit have actually improved since last term.
During their run to glory at Wembley, they beat Arsenal at this stage of the competition. So Arsene Wenger's side will be well aware of the threats, but there are some new weapons in the armoury as well.
Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri will miss tonight's game through injury, but there are still plenty of world-class players at Pep Guardiola's disposal.
Here, we take a look at the 10 greatest threats to Arsenal's hopes of reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
