Carlo Ancelotti 'sympathises' with Arsene Wenger

"I think we saw on a lot of occasions we were absolutely not ready for the fight", Mertesacker said at a press conference ahead of their Champions League round of 16 return leg match against Bayern Munich.

Neither Atleti or Juve can compete with Arsenal's wealth, but both clubs are well-run and well-coached, with astute player recruitment teams that enable them to make up for their financial disadvantages against the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Bayern beat Arsenal 5-1 in the first leg of the series in Munich.

But, is there any chance of these stats of affairs happening?

We have to come back to our strength.

"Overall, I must say they are a better team than us".

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech is set to make way as David Ospina has been selected as our first choice keeper in the Champions League this season so the Colombian worldwide is set for a recall tomorrow.

"This is the beauty of football because in football you never know and I think that experience was good for me to avoid this kind of problem".

"We will play our best team", said Ancelotti. The 28-year-old has made just four appearances for Bayern since signing from Stuttgart back in 2015.

Few Arsenal fans will travel to the Emirates with much hope though and, rather than provide one of the greatest comebacks ever witnessed, the fixture is likely to provide another soapbox for the growing band who feel Wenger's era is close to the end.

Wenger will be without Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla (Achilles) and Mohamed Elneny (ankle).

For me that is most important and I need to make sure we train at a high level and are really focused on the next opponent because it will be tough one.

"We need to turn it around".

Holders Real Madrid, meanwhile, take a 3-1 lead to Napoli tonight, who are aiming for first place in the quarter-finals, their morale boosted by a 2-1 win at Roma on Saturday.

However, the bet that appeals most to me is the time of Bayern's first goal being under bet365's mark of 41 minutes exactly. Since scoring his first goal in 2007, only once has he gone more than five UCL games without a goal.

"Lot of circumstances came together at the same time - from individual errors to things to personal things that cannot be made public".
