Arsenal fans will want to watch live online — or maybe not — as the Gunners take on one of the world’s best clubs in Bayern Munich, with the London club desperately needing a win to keep any semblance of their UEFA Champions League hopes alive. Arsenal FC failed to defeat either Croatian champs Dinamo Zagreb or Greek side Olympiakos leaving them in last place in Group F and in a position where they will likely need to knock off the mighty German Bundesliga champions not once but twice to ensure their place in the knockout phase.
Arsenal’s hapless performance in Europe so far this season is out of line with their impressive run in the Barclay’s Premier League with six wins and 19 points from nine matches, placing them just two points off leaders Manchester City.
But they have had no such success — in fact, no success at all — in the Champions League so far this season, and on Tuesday, they must face one of the tournament favorites in Bayern, who won the UEFA Champions League trophy in 2012/2013.
The good news for Arsenal fans is that Manager Arsene Wenger says that he has identified “weaknesses” in Bayern Munich, a team that has won all nine of its Bundesliga matches so far, in addition to their two wins in the European competition.
“There is no team without weaknesses. What we want to do tomorrow is win the game,” Wenger said on Monday, quoted by ESPN FC. “We want to defend well, attack well, score the first goal, that is massively important in the big games. You can never promise you will score three goals in 20 minutes because that would be absolutely crazy. What we can do is start in a strong way and that is what we will try to do.”
To find out how to watch the Arsenal FC vs. Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League match live online, and see if Wenger can implement his strategy, check out the streaming link in the final paragraph of this article. Kickoff is set for 7:45 p.m. on Tuesday, October 20, at Emirates Stadium in London, England — 2:45 p.m. United States Eastern Daylight Time, 11:45 a.m. Pacific.
The same two teams met in the Round of 16 in the 2014/2015 UEFA Champions league, with Bayern knocking out Arsenal on the strength of a 2-0 away victory in the first leg of the eliminator. Arsenal managed a 1-1 draw in Germany, but it wasn’t nearly enough to overcome Bayern’s two away goals.
But Bayern Munich, despite appearing to be one of the class teams in the Champions League tournament as usual, are not without pressure — and most of that pressure falls squarely in the shoulders of Manager Pep Guardiola who has yet to take home the Champions League trophy in two tries with the German giants, an achievement that most football experts feel is essential for Guardiola to seal his legacy as one of the game’s greatest managers, after winning the tournament twice as manager of Barcelona.
Will Arsenal finally right the ship in their 2015-2016 UEFA Champions League campaign with a stunning upset of the German champions? Or will Bayern Munich drive a nail into the Gunners coffin, leaving the Premier League side with a nearly impossible task just to get out of the group stage?
