Arsenal vs Bayern Munich LIVE! Champions League match streaming, latest score updates, and goals today


Tonight, the highly anticipated first-leg tie of the Champions League quarter-finals takes place in north London. Arsenal, who have made a remarkable return to this stage after 14 years, are determined to establish a lead to take to Germany. Their thrilling victory over Porto in the last-16, secured through a penalty shootout, has fueled their ambition to prove themselves as strong contenders in European football. Mikel Arteta has made two significant selection decisions, with Jakub Kiwior and Gabriel Martinelli both starting.


The Gunners are eager to demonstrate that they are a completely different team compared to those that have been consistently eliminated by Bayern Munich in the past decade.


Despite Bayern’s dominance, this season has been challenging for them, as they currently sit 16 points behind the Bundesliga title race. However, the scintillating form of Harry Kane has been a bright spot for them.


Unfortunately for Bayern, they will not have the support of their away fans tonight due to a Uefa ban. Nevertheless, the presence of Manuel Neuer and Leroy Sane in the starting lineup provides a boost for the team.


The security measures for tonight’s match have been increased following a reported terror threat against all four quarter-finals by the Islamic State group (ISIS). Stay updated on the Arsenal vs Bayern Munich game with live coverage below, including expert analysis from Simon Collings and Dan Kilpatrick at the Emirates Stadium.

A young fan was just asked by the PA announcer to predict the score for the match, with the choices being 2-1 in favor of Arsenal or 5-1 in favor of Arsenal.


Chose 2-1. Asked again, 2-1. Third time’s the charm – goes for 5-1.


Bayern Munich fans are not allowed to attend the trip to the Emirates Stadium tonight. Please be reminded of this.


This decision was made after fans threw fireworks onto the field during their victory over Lazio in the last-16.


Additionally, Bayern was fined €40,000 due to their supporters setting off fireworks during their 2-1 win at FC Copenhagen back in October.


Bayern Munich decided not to challenge Uefa’s ruling.


“We must acknowledge the consequences. The use of pyrotechnics, along with the deliberate firing onto the pitch, posed a direct threat to spectators,” stated Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen.


“The severity of the breach of probation terms makes an appeal pointless.


“It is disappointing that we will now have to play without our fans’ support on the road. A few individuals have tarnished the reputation of our supporters and the team.”


Neuer, Sane, Dier, and De Ligt are all in the starting lineup for Bayern.


The trio of Aleksandar Pavlovic, Kingsley Coman, and Noussair Mazraoui have all been named as substitutes after returning to training yesterday.


Eric Dier and Matthijs de Ligt form the central defensive partnership, replacing Dayot Upamecano and Kim Min-jae following the disappointing performance against Heidenheim.


Harry Kane spearheads the attack alongside Sane, former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry, and Jamal Musiala.


Arsenal have made two changes, bringing in Kiwior and Martinelli. Arteta has opted for Martinelli in the attack over Jesus, and Kiwior over either Zinchenko or Tomiyasu in defense.


The Arsenal manager has made two significant decisions regarding the left side of the team.


Apart from that, the Gunners lineup remains unchanged from the Brighton match, with Mohamed Elneny, Karl Hein, and Reiss Nelson all included on the expanded bench.
