Arsenal will look to build on their FA Cup win over Liverpool when they return to European action against current Champions Bayern Munich later tonight.
The Premier League outfit lost out the Germans in agonising fashion last season as they managed to overcome a 3-1 deficit, winning 2-0 at the Allianz Arena however they could not find the killer third goal to seal their passage.
The result was the kick start for a run of form that sees the club enter the tie in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and just one point off top spot in the Premier League.
Given Bayern’s fantastic form in 2013, one that has carried over into 2014, the game promises to be a real test for the Gunners, one acknowledged by defender Per Mertesacker.
The German International admitted that Arsenal will need to play two perfect games if they are to overcome the runaway Bundesliga leaders.
“We have to go for two perfect games against them.” Mertesacker told the Daily Mirror.
“We know we can beat them now, so maybe mentally we are in a better condition than last year.
“We respected them too much in the first leg then (a 3-1 defeat), so it was too easy for them.
“Maybe we have learned something from those lessons and will do better this time.
“Now we have another chance, and an opportunity to beat the champions. We want to achieve something exceptional this season, so we have to beat the best.
“That is not only Manchester City and Chelsea (in the Premier League), that is Bayern Munich in the Champions League.”
The German’s are currently in the middle of a 13 game winning run and will head into the game will memories of last season’s clash with the Londoners.
On that occasion, and at the same stage of the competition, Bayern advanced on away goals after the score finished 3-3 over the two legs, a 3-1 win at the Emirates ultimately sealing their passage.
Despite going onto lift the trophy Bayern captain Philippe Lahm still remembers the clash with the Gunners and has warned his team-mates to be wary of the Premier League outfit.
“That game is a warning sign to us,” he told The Guardian. “We had been very good in London, we thought nothing can happen to us in the return leg.
“All of a sudden you are 2-0 down and there are still some minutes to play. It shows that things can go really quickly in the Champions League. We will have that in the back of our minds.”
This will be the third time the two sides have met in the Champions league with Bayern winning out on both the previous occasions.
Arsenal are set to include Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Kieran Gibbs, Bacary Sagna and Tomas Rosicky in their squad after the quintet missed the clash with Liverpool however Mikel Arteta misses out through suspension.
Despite his off-field issues Oliver Giroud is in line to start against the Germans.
Bayern meanwhile will be without Xherdan Shaqiri after his torn a muscle in the win over Freiburg. The Swiss star will join Franck Ribery and Holger Badstuber on the sidelines.
