With Robert Lewandowski in his form of his life and the arrays of stars in Bayern Munich, the Arsenal may have to come up with an ingenuity to get a victory in tonight champions league.
Having banged 22 goals so far this season both for the country and club, the polish prolific striker would be too hot for Arsenal to handle. Though the London club has a way of qualifying from the group stage, tonight duel looks daunting.
Arsenal fans talk little about Bayern Munich but their headache has been Lewandowski whom in his last three league games, he has scored a record nine goals to steer Bayern seven points clear at the top of the Bundesliga. Lewandowski joins Gerd Muller and Christian Muller as the only players to have put away 12 goals in eight league games.
His second hat-trick of the season helped Bayern beat Dinamo Zagreb 5-0 in the Champions League.
A brace in Bayern's 3-0 win away at Mainz meant Lewandowski had scored 100 goals in the German top flight in just 168 appearances. The 27-year-old reached the landmark quicker than any other foreign player in Bundesliga history.
Lewandowski's display against Wolfsburg left the football world purring. The Pole came off the bench early in the second half to score five goals in nine minutes. Bayern were 1-0 down before the "super-sub" helped clinch a 5-1 win.
The question is can any team stop Bayern Munich in Europe now? Can Arsenal stop Lewandowski and Muller? On Tuesday, it plays Arsenal in London with the English club needing to win in order to remain in the competition.
Arsene Wenger is having a big task before him and if he could stop Lewandowsky, will he be able to stop Muller?
Arsene Wenger told reporters Monday that his team's defeats in the opening two games of the competition could have been down to complacency.
But he's still confident his players will get themselves out of trouble when they face Bayern.
"We maybe could be a little suspected of not taking the first two games seriously enough but this time that is not the threat," he told a news conference.
"Let's take the positives of our Premier League [form] and as well get the right focus that you get when you play a big opponent.
"We have some ground to make up in Europe as we have not been at our requested level in our first two games.
"Our focus has been much stronger in the Premier League than it has been in Europe and we know in this game the focus needs to be exactly the same than in the in Premier League."
Lahm, the Bayern captain, says his team will not allow Arsenal's poor start to the Champions League to distract it.
"They're a good team with good individuals, and they're showing their true colors in the league,"Lahm told the club's official website.
"But they're under severe pressure in the Champions League. They need a result against us, but we're prepared for that.
"Arsenal are always dangerous because they have real quality and very good, dynamic players in their ranks. And like us, they like to have the ball."
