Bayern Munich keeper Manuel Neuer is looking for a clean sheet in Wednesday night’s first leg to give his side an advantage back in London for the second game of the tie.
The Bundesliga champions will be considered favourites at the Allianz Arena, but the Gunners have almost always managed to find the net on their travels to Munich.
In 2015 Olivier Giroud scored in the 5-1 defeat, while the year previously Lukas Podolski equalised in a 1-1 draw.
In 2013 Giroud and Laurent Koscielny scored the goals in a 2-0 win, and Kolo Toure netted in 2005 as Arsenal went down 3-1.
It was March 2001 when Bayern last kept a clean sheet at home against an Arsene Wenger side, with Giovane Elber’s 10th minute strike giving them a 1-0 win.
“It will be a great game for fans to watch,” said Neuer. “It’s important that we take a good result to London, ideally with a clean sheet.
“We defenders always give our all to stop the opponent scoring. We have had very good results.
“We’re looking forward to the UEFA Champions League, against a top opponent, on a big stage.
“Arsenal have made good signings and have grown as a team in recent years. It will be two great games.”
Bayern’s injury worries have also eased, with doubts over Xabi Alonso dispelled, and the Spaniard is fit to start in midfield.
