What do you need to know?
All the first legs ended 1-0, but of those four winners only Bayern was at home, Lea Schüller’s header means Arsenal are the sole hosts this week needing to overturn a deficit. They can take some hope from London rivals Chelsea in the 2020/21 semi-finals, when the Blues lost 2-1 at Bayern but came through 4-1 in a thrilling return.
Arsenal had two shots cleared off the line in Munich and certainly came much closer to avoiding defeat than Barcelona, who lost there 3-1 in the group stage, a result that announced Bayern’s ambitions to at least reach a first final.
In fact, they have won every game since, the impressive Saturday defeat of Wolfsburg making it 14 victories in a row as well as taking Bayern top of the Bundesliga. They have not conceded a goal in seven games, or in any away match since Barcelona in November.
Nevertheless, the Gunners’ second-half push in Munich was bolstered when Victoria Pelova came off the bench for her Arsenal European debut following her January move from Ajax, and she is already proving a valuable addition in the long-term absence of Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema.
