Champions League: Arsenal prepare for stern Bayern test


The Champions League returns on Tuesday for the start of matchday three.

Having lost their opening two group games Arsenal will be looking to revive their European campaign when they host on-fire title contenders and Group F leaders Bayern Munich.

Keeper Petr Cech will start his first European game for Arsenal while Gabriel returns from illness and Olivier Giroud from a European suspension.

Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich, who boast goal scoring machine Robert Lewandowski, are in imperious form at the moment – breaking the Bundesliga record for the best start to a season last weekend with nine straight wins.

The Germans, who are also two for two in the Champions League, will rightly be in confident mood heading to London despite missing several key players to long term injuries including Franck Ribery and Mario Goetze and Arjen Robben.
