    The Champiooooonnnnnnnns! Not win our league for 12 years :laugh:

    PSG away first, good to get the toughest fixture out the way. They've started this season a bit slowly, losing away to Monaco and dropping points to Saint Etienne.

    I think Xhaka will come back in but with Coquelin. I think Giroud will start too.

    Cech
    Bellerin Koscielny Mustafi Monreal
    Xhaka Coquelin
    Walcott Özil Sanchez
    Giroud

    I definitely think we can pick up a victory here but it won't be easy. They have been formidable at home in recent years.

    That is what I would have gone with. Theo didn't travel so Iwobi/Ox in place would have worked.

    I can understand why he's trying to add new dimensions to Coquelin's game but Wenger should really give that experiment up. He broke into the team as an enforcer who wins the ball back, not a box-to-box midfielder who can provide an option for our deepest playmaker.

    A very boring tie but it's a bit different. We're at the best level we've ever been at over the last 5 years, we're at home in the second leg and they just don't have that same air of invincibility that they've had.

    I still make them favourites but we can definitely knock them out. The two times we did play them at this stage, we lost on away goals and the other tie we played with 10 men for 55 minutes of the 180.

    However, a LOT can change in 2 months.

    We are playing better than them now but a lot can change in a few months.

    I agree. That Bayern side are beatable. Ancelotti has quickly undone all the work Pep had done while he was there.

    Typical Arsenal get a tough draw though.
