Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola believes that Arsenal FC have an advantage over the Bavarian giants given that the circumstance dictate that the Gunners “have to win” the game.

Arsenal FC find themselves with a mountain to climb, having lost their opening two Champions League ties to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos.

However, Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola reckons that the fact that they have to beat Bayern could work in favour of the Gunners .

Bayern have been in great form this season, having lost just once in the German Super Cup to Wolfsburg, but winning every game since.

Maybe this is the way the Catalan manager wants his charges to be on their toes?
