Reports are out claiming that Arsenal legend Charlie Nicholas has claimed that his former side can beat German giants Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Evaluating the odds of the upcoming Champions League matches for Sky Sports, Nicholas claims that Arsenal’s recent good form could see them defeat a Bayern side who have won their opening nine matches of the Bundesliga season as well as their first two European fixtures.
Nicholas mused: “I think Arsenal are a great value bet at 11/4, even if you backed them at +1 in the handicap. They’ve got good momentum, they’re playing well, Alexis Sanchez is in form, Mesut Ozil is in form, Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud getting goals is another plus.
“Bayern will want to play an open game of football and look to Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller to pick them off, but that will suit Arsenal with the way they are playing right now, especially with Theo Walcott’s pace and movement.”
Arsenal will consider the match a must-win game after two defeats in their first two fixtures and will hope that Nicholas’ predictions prove accurate.
