Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola believes Arsenal’s desperate nature to win their Champions League clash on Tuesday night makes them a dangerous proposition.
The Spanish tactician was discussing the match in his pre-game press conference, as reported by Sky Sports, and conceded that the hosts have the “advantage”.
Arsene Wenger’s side face the German giants off the back of two consecutive losses in the Champions League so far this year, with defeats to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos leaving them bottom of Group F.
As a result, the Gunners can ill-afford another defeat which would all-but end their hopes of making the knockout stages of the tournament, and so they prepare for Tuesday night’s game looking to attack and win the game.
Guardiola is wary of the threat that they will pose despite the impressive form that his side have displayed so far this season.
The Bundesliga champions sit top of their domestic table having won all nine league games so far this year, scoring 29 goals while conceding just four.
Meanwhile, they have also been in imperious form in the Champions League having won both of their games so far having scored eight goals and conceded none.
As a result, the odds are stacked against Arsenal in a game that they will feel as though they have to win in order to have any chance of progressing.
