On April 17, 2024, the football world will be eagerly watching as Bayern Munich hosts Arsenal at the Allianz Arena for the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.

With the aggregate score tied at 2-2, this matchup promises to be a riveting encounter.

Current Form

Bayern's Current Form

Bayern Munich's recent form in all competitions has been a mix of highs and lows (WWLLDW), with a notable victory against Koln that helped delay Bayer Leverkusen's Bundesliga title celebrations.

However, they could not prevent Leverkusen from ultimately securing the title the following day with a resounding win over Werder Bremen.

Arsenal's Current Form

Arsenal, on the other hand, has had a slightly better run of results (WDWWDL) despite a recent stumble in the Premier League against Aston Villa, where they suffered a surprising defeat.

This loss followed a string of robust performances that saw them conceding only one goal in six away matches.

Team News

Bayern's Team News

Bayern Munich will be without key players such as Alphonso Davies, who is suspended, and Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman, both sidelined due to injuries.

These absences could significantly impact their wing play and overall flexibility on the pitch.

Arsenal's Team News

Arsenal faces their own challenges with the potential absence of captain Martin Odegaard, who is doubtful after not completing the previous game.

Jurrien Timber remains a long-term absentee, although there is hope for his return in May.

The Gunners might also see some adjustments in their defensive lineup as they look to stabilize after recent shaky performances.
