UWCL: Bayern Munich Women vs. Arsenal Women Preview, Squad Report & Prediction

On Tuesday, the Women’s Champions League quarter-final matchup between Arsenal Women and Bayern Munich Women will occur in Germany.

Team Form

Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich had an impressive showing during the Champions League group stage, finishing level on 15 points with Barcelona. Despite their remarkable record, the German side had to settle for second place due to their inferior head-to-head goal difference.

Alexander Straus’ side has been on an incredible run of form lately, winning their last six matches in all competitions by a combined scoreline of 18-1. This is a good sign for Bayern as they prepare to face Arsenal in Tuesday’s match.

Although Bayern Munich has a strong reputation in European football, their record in the Champions League quarter-finals could be better. The team has lost three of their five previous quarter-final ties, including last season’s encounter with Paris Saint-Germain.

Arsenal 

Arsenal has secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the 15th time after picking up 13 points in their six group games. 

After suffering back-to-back losses to Manchester City and Chelsea in the league and FA Cup, Arsenal has bounced back strongly, winning their last three matches. 

Unlike their opponents Bayern Munich, Arsenal had a weekend off due to their exit from the FA Cup in the fifth round. This has given the Gunners a valuable opportunity to rest and prepare for their upcoming clash against the German giants.
