2014 UEFA Champions League:Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich
February 19, 2014 by Marc Jerbs

On Wednesday, the Emirates Stadium in London, England will host the 1st leg of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16. Arsenal will face the defending champion Bayern Munich in their home soil.

Arsenal is coming off a 2-1 win over Liverpool in their FA Cup fixture. Last year, Bayern Munich derailed Arsenal's chances to book a seat into the next round of the UEFA Champions League. They exited the tournament due to away goals they surrendered to Bayern Munich.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes his side has developed the confidence and are more mentally prepared this time as against in last year's humbling defeat.

Bayern Munich is now coached by Pep Guardiola. Captain Philipp Lahm believed that they will not change their approach and how they play the game as they strive to defend their UEFA Champions League title.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Bayern Munich as the favorite to win the 1st leg of the UEFA Champion League against Arsenal.
