    No time to rest, we're heading to Munich. The home game against them was a must win,
    a draw here would probably put us in a decent position heading into the final two games.
    It will be hard no doubt and we're without Walcott who caused them some trouble getting
    in behind their defenders. We did a great job of keeping Lewandowski and Müller quiet
    last time around, but we'll have to repeat that feat to get anything from this game.
    Oh, and then there is Douglas Costa of course to keep quiet, and Robben is back.
    Well, we have done it once, let's do it again and beat them!

    Wow, that really is the difference between us and the next level. Muller 14 goals and Lewandowski 17 goals already! Think this will be a tight game again but they will create more chances than at our ground and if they take one early we could be in serious trouble.

    The NLD is more important next weekend, last game prior to the international break as well.

    Couldn't care less about this, as we've done our job at the Emirates and every point in Munich is a bonus.

    Same team again obvs.

    Reckon it will be a hard fought 1-1. Theo would have been perfect for the counter attack for this one but OG keeps popping up with goals from set pieces/crosses so it makes up for it.

    We're going to beat them on the counter again. We've done it once, we'll be more content doing it away from home. It's not like we haven't beat them on their ground when they're at their best.

    So hard to know where to put this game in the pecking order of competions. It's is pretty clear that PL and the NLD is more important than the game against Bayern. On the other hand it would be one hell of a showcase of our impact if we got away with some points in the bag from Germany. I think that we're gonna start with our ordinary line up in both games. Even tough one would prefeer to rest on or two players in favour to the weekend.

    Campbell might not have recovered from the two games in a week, something that hasn't happened too often for him... possibly rested? Though I am not sure how the team would be built without him... Iwobi to replace him with a hattrick!

    And yeah, we don't realy have any other options than the usual players, right now.

    all the pressure is on Bayern for this, a loss for them opens the group up. draw is good enough for us and tbh even a loss and we can still do it.

    if giroud plays like he did for the home leg we have a chance, he has to hold that ball!

    its gonna be tough but Bayern can be beaten!!!

    1-1, a point would be massive.

    If we lose, to qualify we'll have to hope Bayern beat Olympiakos and we beat them by 2 goals or more - assuming we beat Dinamo.

    If we draw, we'll qualify if we beat Dinamo and Olympiakos.

    If we win, we'll top the group if we beat Dinamo and Olympiakos.

    I'd release 'The Flam' for this one, keep Campbell fresh for the NLD, can't risk another winger.

    Cech
    Bellerin Mertesacker Koscielny Monreal
    Flamini Coquelin Cazorla
    Özil Giroud Alexis
    Mertesacker has done it a the Allianz already, might as well let him do it again.

    would like to qualify, wouldn't be fazed if we didn't though. I'll go for a tense, scrappy 1-1

    We must press. We must get out and press. We mustn't sit back. Get out and press. Listen to Owen, he knows what he's chatting about. Get out and press.

    Isn't that what commentators told us to do repeatedly throughout the game, when it turns out we won by NOT pressing and leaving all gaps closed by holding positions?
