The knockout round of the 2016-17 Champions League continues on Fox Sports 1 with Bayern Munich hosting Arsenal. The NY Times' Rory Smith asks if seeing the same super clubs playing each other in the Champions League is getting a little predictable. It's an interesting discussion, especially when it's a game we've seen before.
Bayern Munich vs Arsenal at 2:45pm on Fox Sports 1 in the Champions League. Bayern is top of the Bundesliga table with a seven point lead n RB Leipzig. They shutout Ingolstadt 2-0 on the road in their last Bundesliga game. Arsenal is 4th in the Premier League, tied on points with 3rd-place Spurs. They shutout Hull City 2-0 at home.
“Arsenal have very good footballers," Bayern's Robert Lewandowski said. "They know what it means to play in the Champions League,” commented Lewandowski. “We need to concentrate on ourselves. If we play our game then Arsenal probably won’t get many chances. But we must play well from back to front.”
