Arsenal look to state their case for the Round of 16 when they head to Germany for Matchday 4. Bayern Munich and Olympiacos sit atop the Group F standings with six points apiece, but a second Arsenal triumph over Pep Guardiola’s squad in two weeks would make things crowded at the top.
Arsenal has surged to the top of the EPL table, but it’s come at a price. The Gunners are suffering through a brutal string of injuries, and Bayern will field a much more talented side Wednesday night. Munich is looking to get back on track after first losing to Arsenal, then having their ten-game winning streak snapped in the Bundesliga over the weekend.

Arsenal may be in better form, but they might have awoken a sleeping giant in Bayern. Injuries are piling up for the Gunners, and it wouldn’t surprise me if Wenger started to shift his focus to the EPL race. If Munich scores first, they can control the game and prevent Arsenal from opening up a counter. And they will.
