Bayern Munich have the opportunity to take a commanding lead in their Champions League group.

It's not often that a team that perennially makes the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League finds themselves in a deep hole after just the first two group stage games. However, a certain club from London is having the most troubles. That club is Arsenal.

After their first two matches against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos, Arsenal find themselves sitting at the bottom of the table with zero points. So, the match in London against Bayern is basically a must-win match for them. A third loss puts them in an even more trouble with trips to Munich and Athens (Olympiacos) ahead of them.

Bayern will be targeting the victory to all but assure them to advance to the knockout rounds. The Bavarians won't be fully staffed for the match with many players including Arjen Robben missing the match through injury. A lot of the match will rest of the ability of Thiago Alcantara, Xabi Alonso and their midfielder partner to control proceedings. Having a quality wing attack will also greatly aid FC Bayern.

Pep Guardiola and Bayern Munich have answered their two biggest challenges to date in the Bundesliga with impressive 5-1 victories. Can they produce a similar result against Arsenal?
