Team News:

Arsenal will be without midfielder Mikel Arteta, who misses the game through suspension.

Midfielders Jack Wilshere (back) and Santi Cazorla (illness) could return to Arsene Wenger's starting line-up, along with defenders Kieran Gibbs (muscular) and Bacary Sagna (fatigue).

Striker Olivier Giroud may also start, while Wojciech Szczesny is likely to return in goal in place of Lukasz Fabianski.

European champions Bayern travel to north London with Franck Ribery (buttock) and fellow winger Xherdan Shqiri (thigh) ruled out.

Bastian Schweinsteiger (ankle) is fit again and should start.

What they've said ahead of kick-off:

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "We are in much better mental shape today than we were one year ago. We lost against Blackburn at home in the FA Cup and it was a big disappointment for us. This time we won against Liverpool. We have a strong team spirit, a strong desire to do well and a united team. I believe we had always these kind of qualities but we had not always the belief. The belief is built by the results. On that front we are stronger, of course. We believe we can do it, but that's down to the quality of our performance tomorrow."

Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola: "It's my third time here to play Arsenal. I've never won here and I've learned that you can't dominate for 90 minutes against Arsenal. You can play good and dominate for half the game perhaps, or for 70 minutes, but for 90 minutes it's impossible. With the quality of players Arsenal have we know they can cause [us] a problem, but we'll try to play well, as best we possibly can. We don't think too much about the second leg – we must concentrate on what we have to do tomorrow and I hope it goes well.
