Even with our first choice defenders on the pitch we would have a hard time keeping a clean sheet but with this make shift back line it looks an ever longer shot.
Although in football any thing can happen, more often that not the better team wins over 2 legs. I think Bayern might be amongst Europe's 4 best teams behind Barca, Real and Man U.
On paper and based on our track record in the big games, we have little chance of a victory.
(Upside is we can only have a pleasant surprise there is little down side. The pressure is on Bayern.)
Tough at the best of times.
Bayern have not been leaking goals this season at all. They score plenty too, though not through Gomez this year. He's gone right off the boil.
This year it's another Mario, Mandžukic!
If we keep the score down and defend away, It is possible for us to score more at home. I don't think we could manage anything more than a one goal win over the two legs though.
If I were a betting man, Bayern would have to be favourites.

Bayern are running away with the Bundesliga and have a lead similar to Manure's over Dortmund. The latter made Shitty look ordinary in group stage. So long as we come out of this one with a chance to go through over two legs, I'll be appeased. Over two legs we have a zero chance of beating Bayern. They are probably the second best team in Europe behind Barca.
I agree on how good Bayern are and they certainly are favourites over two legs, but this is a cup game and anything can happen.
Like I said, it's all about keeping a clean sheet at Home and if we could nick a goal or two then brilliant.
I cant see us winning in Germany so that's why it's so important to go there with a lead or at least not conceding the away goal.
This is why it was so important for Wenger to buy defensive players in January, it's our Achilles hill!
