3. Bayern's struggles

Bayern Munich have looked very much out of character this season. They are second in the Bundesliga and are a staggering 16 points behind league leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

Thomas Tuchel's side have suffered back to back defeats in the Bundesliga having lost 3-2 to Heidenheim on Saturday and 2-0 to Borussia Dortmund in 'Der Klassiker' a week prior. The usually unstoppable German force have looked a different side this campaign, and not in a good way.

Arsenal should look to capitalise on a Bayern side that are not their usual selves but must be weary not to become too complacent. The German club are more than capable of getting results and with the ever deadly Harry Kane up front, they will certainly cause Arsenal some problems.
