Arsenal and Bayern Munich are playing their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match Wednesday and the game is streaming from the Fox Soccer 2Go website from Emirates Stadium starting up at 2:45 pm ET and the matchup comes after Barcelona won over Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain took their game against Bayer Tuesday.
The Champions League schedule picked up from back in December this week and after Man City and Barcelona played along with PSG and Bayer, Arsenal takes on the defending champions in Bayern Munich and in the other match AC Milan plays Atletico Madrid and that will be at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and both kick off at 2:45 pm ET. Arsenal comes into the match after winning in the FA Cup against Liverpool at home and that came after the team pulled a draw with Manchester United and lost to Liverpool in the Premier League and that finally knocked the team out of the top spot on the EPL table by Chelsea.
Arsenal has the chance to rest up and get things going at home, as they have played two of their last three matches at home and three of the next four are coming from the Emirates Stadium and that leads into the second leg against Bayern Munich and that will be at Allianz Arena and that comes before a tough Premier League matchup against Tottenham at White Hart Lane. The Gunners have the chance for some revenge against Chelsea and that match will be at Stamford Bridge and then the team matches up against Manchester City and that stretch of games likely will decide the top of the Premier League table this season. Arsenal finishes the schedule against Norwich City and heading into that they also have matches against Everton and Hull City.
Arsenal and Bayern Munich are familiar foes and the match comes after the Gunners lost to the eventual champions last year and that 3-1 loss at the Emirates was tough to overcome and despite their 2-0 win away, they failed to advance. Arsene Wenger said his team learned from that performance and will be ready for Pep Guardiola's squad and Arsenal has a tough task, as Manchester City is the only team to have won against Bayern over the same stretch and one weakness will be that Franck Ribery will not be making the trip.
Manchester City had to deal with Sergio Aguero being out for their match on Tuesday and they lost at home to Barcelona and Bayern comes in killing it once again in the Bundesliga, scoring in bunches. The Premier League table had Arsenal on top for most of the season and Chelsea has now edged ahead and the Gunners are one point back, while Manchester City and Liverpool are next in the standings. The next set has Liverpool ahead of Tottenham and Everton, while Manchester United is in seventh on the league table and they play against Olympiakos next week.
The matchups on the Champions League schedule come before the second legs in a few weeks and that will pick up in March and Arsenal will have to travel to play Bayern, while Manchester City will head to Estadio Camp Nou and that is never an easy match. Chelsea hosts their next leg match and so will Real Madrid and Manchester United, who will play against Olympiakos at Old Trafford and that will be a chance for a good showing in from of the home fans.
