What do you need to know?

All the first legs ended 1-0, but of those four winners only Bayern were at home, Lea Schüller's header meaning Arsenal are the sole hosts this week needing to overturn a deficit. They can take some hope from London rivals Chelsea in the 2020/21 semi-finals, when the Blues lost 2-1 at Bayern but came through 4-1 in a thrilling return.

Arsenal had two shots cleared off the line in Munich and certainly came much closer to avoiding defeat than Barcelona, who lost there 3-1 in the group stage, a result that announced Bayern's ambitions to at least reach a first final.

In fact, they have won every game since, the impressive Saturday defeat of Wolfsburg making it 14 victories in a row as well as taking Bayern top of the Bundesliga. They have not conceded a goal in seven games, or in any away match since Barcelona in November.

Nevertheless, the Gunners' second-half push in Munich was bolstered when Victoria Pelova came off the bench for her Arsenal European debut following her January move from Ajax, and she is already proving a valuable addition in the long-term absence of Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema.

Performance Insight: Bayern 1-0 Arsenal

View from the camps

Jonas Eidevall, Arsenal head coach: “I do think with the squad we have we can beat any team at any time. Having that feeling is one of the greatest feelings to have because you know everything is possible.

"With the away goals rule it would have been very complicated but now it isn't. We just have to win the football match by attacking and creating goalscoring opportunities while keeping a balance with the defence."

Rafaelle Souza, Arsenal defender: "We know it will be a hard game. We cannot make any mistakes. We’ve had a good week of training and feel like we’re ready. It can go both ways so we cannot make mistakes."

Alexander Straus, Bayern coach: "The last few weeks have been very tough and exhausting, but we're very confident after the last two games. The players are currently carrying the enormous burden in a great way. We probably played one of the best games of the season against Wolfsburg.

"I'm just very proud of how the team is performing and giving everything in every game despite the busy schedule. It's a tough time of the season and if you want to be a champion then you have to be able to handle it. In the game we want to present the best version of ourselves.”

Lina Magull, Bayern captain: "We are aware of what Arsenal can do, that they want to have the ball a lot and are very good with the ball. We saw that last week. That's why we want to make sure we have more possession ourselves and use our attacks better. We didn't do that well in last week. Otherwise, we can travel to London with two important wins behind us.

"We won't let ourselves be blinded by the 1-0 lead from the first leg, it's still very close. We approach it like after a 0-0. Of course we have a bit of an advantage, but we won't speculate on a tight result or a draw. We'll play to win, we definitely want to win the second leg – and then we'll go on."
