The dates of Arsenal’s Champions League encounters with Bayern Munich have been fixed – much like the draw itself … we kid, we kid!
The Gunners will travel to Germany to play the Bundesliga champions on Wednesday February 15th. The second leg will take place at the Emirates on Tuesday March 7th.
It means Arsene Wenger’s men face a particularly difficult run of games around that period of the season.
They’re away to Chelsea on February 4th, away in Munich on the 15th, and travel to Southampton on the 25th.
Then, right before the second leg they play Liverpool at Anfield – a game which has yet to be moved for television but which could take place on the Saturday or Sunday depending on the whims of the broadcasters.
So, it’s gonna be hectic, but there’s not much we can do other than keep winning games. Fingers crossed.
