Bayern Munich vs. Arsenal takes place tonight in the Champions League.

The last-16 second leg game, which takes place at the Allianz Stadium, is scheduled to kick off at 19:45 GMT and airs live in the United Kingdom on Sky Sports 2/Sky Sports 2 HD.

Arsenal trail 3-1 following the first leg in north London, and although they face a near impossible task, and are without influential midfielder Jack Wilshere - who has been ruled out for three weeks with an ankle injury - and striker Lukas Podolski, who scored in the first-leg, manager Arsene Wenger isn't accepting defeat.

"There have been a few wins by Arsenal in the Champions League that we are all very proud of," Wenger said at his pre-match press conference.

"We just have to convince ourselves that we can do it in Munich as well.

"Yes, the chance is small, but the chance makes the impossible possible. That would be a great credit for our team if we do it. We have to try to achieve it.

"We have to try to put Bayern on the back foot. Subconsciously anyway, they think they are through and we have to subconsciously think that we can do it.

"The only way to do it is to have a very positive attitude from the start."

In other team news for the Gunners, No.1 goal-keeper Wojciech Szczęsny will not be involved, although Abou Diaby and Kieran Gibbs are available for selection.

Bayern have some injury problems of their own though, with Franck Ribery definitely out and Arjen Robben facing a late fitness test.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Jerome Boateng are both suspended for the game.
