And despite much speculation about his future in recent weeks, Wenger has not been short of admirers in the build up to the clash at the Allianz Arena.

For Arsene Wenger, the outcome of Arsenal's Champions League showdown with Bayern Munich could well be make or break for one of the longest-serving managers in European soccer.

History has a amusing way of repeating itself, and only by analysing on the mistakes of the past can one better himself for future events, which is why Arsenal will likely crash and burn once again this year in this stage of the tournament.

A rampant Bayern continued to poor forward and with Arsenal wilting under pressure, an inevitable fourth goal arrived in the 63rd minute, moments after the Bavarians had hit the bar. Then as the Bayern defense crashed the box, three defenders failed to clear the ball before an alert Sanchez pounced and slotted a ball through two sets of legs and into the far corner.

"Normally, we are always present at this stage of the competition, we have enough experience to know what we have to do", said Robben.

Champions League victor in 2013, Bayern has reached at least the semifinals the past five years and has won its last 15 Champions League home games, a record streak.

The Gunners boss addressed the press on the eve of the game at the Allianz Arena and, after speculation emerged the German playmaker was causing frustration among his team-mates, was quizzed on whether Ozil would feature in the contest.

"What Wenger has done is close to being impossible in the modern game, he is a legend", says Ancelotti.

Not since 2011, when they bowed out to Inter Milan after losing 3-2 at home in the second leg, has Bayern exited at the last 16 stage of the Champions League.

The first half started lively for Bayern Munich.

"We know from the past that the first game is very important, so we need to take a good result back to London".

Ozil has been under the spotlight following anonymous performances in recent defeats to Watford and Chelsea and did little to deflect the criticism after missing a host of chances in Arsenal's 2-0 Premier League win over Hull City on Saturday.

Wenger's contract at Arsenal runs out at the end of the season and he has yet to agree to a new deal amid increasing discontent among fans at the team's failure to mount a strong title challenge.
