Huge champions league boost for Arsenal, as Arjen Robben will not be in the squad when the German champions face Arsenal in Champions League’s vital clash on Tuesday night as the Dutch winger is left out due to injury. Earlier, another Bayern star Mario Gotze was also ruled out due to injury.

Robben picked up an abductor injury in the Euro 2016 qualifying match against Iceland in September but was targeting a return against the Gunners after returning to training recently. Now reports are confirming he failed in his bid to regain full fitness for the Group stage contest.

Bayern Munich released a statement revealing, “For Robben this trip is too soon.” After that, the team left Bavaria on Sunday evening to bypass the busy travel time of London’s Monday traffic.

 As the Bavarians will miss Robben’s service, another winger Kingsley Coman, was included, who was in the bench during Saturday’s 1-0 win over Werder Bremen. Coman picked up an injury while playing with the France Under-21 team in the international break.

Poland striker Robert Lewandowski also picked up a slight injury during Bayern’s latest Bundesliga win against Werder Bremen. But later he confirmed, “I’m 100 per cent fit. I’m feeling very good. Arsenal are under pressure, but they are always dangerous at home. ”

With the 1-0 win over Bremen, Bayern registered a Bundesliga record as they won their ninth consecutive game to start the new season which broke another record in the process. Muller scored the only goal of the match, but Lewandowski surprisingly failed to score after 6 consecutive matches with stunning goals.

The Bavarians are seven points ahead of second-placed Borussia Dortmund in Bundesliga. They have also achieved a great start in Champions League also, leading Group F as they won both of their games earlier.

On the other hand, the Gunners have managed to start their European campaign in a disastrous way, having lost both of their games to Dynamo Kiev and Olympiakos and now are placed at the bottom of the group, ahead of the crucial home-and-away double encounter against Bayern Munich.
