Robert Lewandowski Reveals How Bayern Munich Want To Destroy Arsenal
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has revealed that the hosts will need to stick to their game against Arsenal if they want to progress to the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
The German giants are outright favorites to win the fixture as they were able to knockout Arsenal comfortably since the turn of the decade. However, the game is expected to be a much closer affair as Bayern are yet to play the commanding football after winter break.
Despite their dip in control, Bayern have still managed to grind out victories post winter break as they have now won 10 of their last 11 games across all competitions. Meanwhile, Arsenal have also lost their form in the recent weeks as they have lost to Watford and Chelsea in consecutive weeks which has put them 10 points adrift from league leaders Chelsea.
Robert Lewandowski, who has been Bayern’s star man so far this season, reveals that the team should stick to their game which will be enough to get past Arsenal.
‘Everyone’s waiting for this game. It will be a big challenge for us. I hope we can deliver a good performance and play really well here in Munich,’ said Lewandowski.
‘Arsenal have very good footballers. They know what it means to play in the Champions League. We need to concentrate on ourselves. If we play our game then Arsenal probably won’t get many chances. But we must play well from back to front.’
Arsenal will have to play their best football if they want to have a chance in the fixture as Bayern Munich are arguably have the most complete squad in the world. Die Roten have found it relatively easy when they faced Arsenal as they came out on top on most occasions in the recent years.
A two legged fixture meant Bayern are heavy favorites but Arsenal will back their chances if they can manage an away goal at Allianz Arena when the sides meet on Wednesday night.
