The UEFA Champions League quarterfinals are — finally! — here, with Arsenal taking on Bayern Munich in one of the standout showdowns. After years of heartbreak at the hands of the German giants, the North London side return rejuvenated under Mikel Arteta's reign but should face a stern test in Tuesday's 3 p.m. ET showdown at the Emirates Stadium.

This fixture presents the Gunners with a shot at revenge, having suffered humiliation against the Bundesliga powerhouses in this competition several times before. While their 10-2 aggregate defeat against the Bavarians in the 2016-17 round of 16 pops into everyone's mind, this one-sided rivalry stretches way before that, with the North London outfit suffering several defeats that predate that historic result.

However, things are different this time around. Not only are Saka and Co. one of the best teams in Europe, but they are also currently the Premier League leaders, with their recent 3-0 win over Brighton propelling them to the top.

Goals from Bukayo Saka, Kai Havertz, and Leandro Trossard secured Arsenal the three points at the Amex, and with Liverpool drawing 2-2 at Manchester United a day later, the Gunners leapfrogged Klopp's side in the standings. While they lead the Merseyside giants on goal difference alone, that remains a huge confidence boost ahead of Tuesday's European tie.

In fact, Arsenal are one of, if not the most in-form team in Europe in 2024, having won all but one of their 11 league matches this calendar year. That one slip-up was a goalless draw away to rivals Manchester City, with Arteta's rock-solid defense conceding only four goals during this run while scoring a whopping 38 times.

However, the hosts are not infallible. Arteta's men have lost twice in the UEFA Champions League this season already, going 2-1 down away to Lens in the group stage before suffering a 1-0 defeat away to Porto in the first leg of their round of 16 match-up. The Gunners ultimately prevailed over the Dragons on penalties but must carry their ruthless league form into the UEFA Champions League if they wish to reach the semifinals for the first time since 2008-09.

While Arsenal's season has been nothing short of impressive, the story of Bayern Munich's 2023-24 campaign has been anything but that. Not only are the German giants set to miss out on the Bundesliga title to Bayer Leverkusen, but Muller and Co. could also go trophyless for the first time since 2011-12.

Thomas Tuchel's men are a whopping 16 points behind Xabi Alonso's league leaders with only six games left to go. In fact, Leverkusen could officially be crowned the champions this weekend if Bayern stumble against Koln, thus racking up the pressure on their departing head coach.

With the German leaving at the end of the season, he will want to deliver silverware before he departs and the UEFA Champions League remains his only route. Unfortunately for the visitors, form does not favor them as they enter this tie on the back of a two-game losing streak.

The Bavarians hit a new low over the weekend after throwing away a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 away to Heidenheim roughly a week after losing 2-0 against Dortmund, which was their first home defeat in Der Klassiker in nearly a decade.

However, Bayern have outperformed their opponent in Europe so far this season — albeit only slightly. While Arsenal have suffered two defeats already, Tuchel's men have lost only once, going 1-0 down away to Lazio in the first leg of that round of 16 match-up. The Germans ultimately pulled off a comeback in the second leg, winning 3-0.

Furthermore, the visitors can look to the unstoppable Harry Kane for inspiration. While the Englishman's trophy drought will likely persist for another season, the former Tottenham star is averaging just over a goal per game across all competitions, scoring 38 times in 37 appearances. 

Furthermore, Kane has a track record of scoring against the Gunners and is the all-time leading goalscorer in the North London derby. Can he inspire Bayern Munich to an Emirates Stadium victory? Do not miss this showdown!

Team news

Arsenal: Arteta's side are getting healthier by the day. Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey both enjoyed brilliant cameos against Luton Town on Wednesday while Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu came off the bench in the weekend victory over Brighton. This leaves Jurrien Timber as their only absentee. Gabriel Martinelli will be pushing for a start while Bukayo Saka should be fine despite limping off the pitch at the Amex.

Bayern Munich: The visitors are not as fortunate as the hosts as Manuel Neuer, Kingsley Coman, Leroy Sane, Noussair Mazraoui, and Aleksandar Pavlovic look set to miss this tie. However, Dayot Upamecano returns from suspension and should slot straight back into the lineup. Sacha Boy is also unavailable due to a hip injury.
