Arsenal look to extend winning streak

Arsenal travel to the Allianz Arena in the Champions League on Wednesday night hoping to make it back-to-back  victories over Bayern München.

The Gunners pulled off a shock 2-0 win over the Bavarians a fortnight ago and need at least a point to keep their chances of qualifying for the knockout phase in their own hands.

Currently in third place on three points in the group with three matches left to play, Arsene Wenger's side will hope Olympiakos slip up against Dinamo Zagreb in the other Group F match.

Wenger will be boosted by his squad's impressive 3-0 win over Swansea City at the weekend, but will still be without Alex Oxlad-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey (both hamstring) and Theo Walcott (calf) meaning Joel Campbell will likely start once more after his goal at the Liberty Stadium.

Bayern, meanwhile, dropped their first points of the Bundesliga campaign at the weekend as they were held 0-0 away to Frankfurt and will be keen to make things right against the north Londoners following their shock defeat at the Emirates.

Franck Ribery (ankle), Mario Gotze (thigh) and Sebastian Rode (hamstring) remain sidelined for the clash but manager Pep Guardiola will be able to call on  Arjen Robben, Javi Martinez and Medhi Benatia.

On a positive note for Wenger's side, Arsenal are yet to lose at Bayern's new home, having drawn once and won once in their two previous trips to Munich in recent years.
