For the second consecutive year, Bayern Munich’s path to UEFA Champions League glory travels through north London.
After winning back some momentum last Saturday, Arsenal look to overcome their recent fatigue against the defending European and German champions as they meet Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening at the Emirates Stadium. Bayern will be without Franck Ribery and Xherdan Shaqiri but their strength in depth is still scary with the likes of Arjen Robben and Javi Martinez fully fit and back in the lineup.
Jack Wilshere is expected to return to the starting lineup for the Gunners while manager Arsene Wenger has made the curious decision to start young forward Yaya Sanogo.
Over in Milan, Atletico look to continue their impressive season with a match against long-struggling AC Milan. The Italians are currently in ninth place in Serie A compared to Atletico’s third-place position in La Liga, and Milan’s defense will be quickly tested at home against Diego Simeone’s charges.
In the evening, Club Leon plays their second Copa Libertadores match of the campaign when they travel to Bolivar in Bolivia.
