TIP OF THE DAY: Bayern – Arsenal: The Bavarians are playing to save the season!

On Wednesday, the last two quarter-final matches of this year’s Champions League edition are scheduled, and this time we’ve prepared the encounter between Bayern and Arsenal for you. The first leg between the German and English representatives ended in a draw (2-2), and the second leg is scheduled for tonight at 9 p.m.

Bayern: Can the Bavarians Reach the Semifinals?

Eleven times in a row, the team from Bayern Munich has clinched the title of German champions, and it was only a matter of time before this incredible streak came to an end. Many believed that only Borussia Dortmund could break the formidable run of Bayern, however, this season has brought about a highly unexpected turn of events.

By winning in the previous round at home against Werder Bremen, Leverkusen secured their first-ever title in history, likely shedding the rather unpopular nickname ‘Neverkusen’ in the process. At this moment, under the guidance of Chabi Alonso, who is doing an excellent job as the manager of the Pharmacists, they hold a staggering sixteen-point lead over second-placed Bayern Munich, an insurmountable gap in points.

In the first part of the season, Bayern were somewhat in contention. However, in the latter part of the championship, Thomas Tuchel’s men have been playing disastrously. As it stands, it would be considered a success if this team manages to hold onto the second spot in the table, as third-placed Stuttgart currently shares the same number of points, and the popular Swabians are performing exceptionally well this season.

In the previous round, Tuchel’s proteges secured a victory at home against Cologne, with a final score of 2-0. Prior to that, the reigning German champions played poorly in an away game against Heidenheim, who won with a score of 3-2. It’s worth mentioning that the German giant had a two-goal lead at one point, but even that wasn’t enough to secure a victory against the Bundesliga newcomer.

It’s important to note that Bayern has been eliminated from the Cup by a third-division team for the second year in a row, with Saarbrücken being the nemesis for the former German champions this time around.

For now, things are only working out in the Champions League, where this team, primarily competing against Manchester United, Copenhagen, and Galatasaray, secured the top spot in the group. Subsequently, in the round of 16, Bayern outplayed Lazio in a two-legged tie, despite the Italian representative winning the first leg at the Olimpico 1-0. In the second leg, the German side played an excellent match and rightfully secured their place among the top eight European teams. In the first leg of the quarterfinals, Bayern played a good match away against the excellent Arsenal this season, with the game ending in a draw (2-2). Therefore, the decision about the semifinalist of the Champions League will be made in Munich.

Arsenal: Defeat against Aston Villa Shouldn’t Have Happened!

As things stand now, Arsenal could very likely repeat the poor performance from last season. We all remember that at one point, this team even had a double-digit lead over its closest rivals, and the title was practically within reach. However, towards the end of the championship, Mikel Arteta’s men played several matches well below par.

For instance, before the last round of the Premier League, the Gunners were sitting at the top of the table, essentially controlling their fate in the race for the English title, as they had a better head-to-head record than both City and Liverpool. In the meantime, City defeated Luton and moved to the top of the table, but Liverpool suffered a shocking defeat at home against Crystal Palace. All Arsenal needed to claim the top spot was a victory at home against Aston Villa. However, to everyone’s surprise, Mikel Arteta’s side was defeated 0-2 by the Birmingham team at their own stadium. As a result, the former English champions currently share the second spot on the table with the same number of points as Liverpool, but with a two-point deficit compared to the leaders, City, who are on the verge of another English title.

Prior to that disappointing loss in the last round against Aston Villa, which unfortunately could also decide the battle for the English championship, this team celebrated a very difficult away victory against Brighton with a score of 0-3.

The Champions League is once again being played at the Emirates after a six-year hiatus, and as far as this competition is concerned, it seems that everyone at the club must be more than satisfied for now. The primary goal was, of course, to advance to the next round, which the English representative achieved a round before the end, simultaneously securing the top spot in the table, ahead of PSV. In that group, alongside Arsenal, were also Sevilla and Lazio.

In the round of 16, Mikel Arteta’s men had no easy task as they faced Porto, who have been achieving good results in the Champions League in recent years. In the end, the English representative advanced to the quarterfinals after a better penalty shootout.

In the first leg of the quarterfinals, Arsenal played against Bayern at their stadium a week ago, and considering Bayern’s performance this season, it seemed like the Gunners were the favorites in that match. However, the match ended in a draw, so there is no doubt that the team from London faces an extremely difficult task in the rematch against a highly motivated opponent looking to salvage their season.
