Arsenal entertain Bayern Munich at the Emirates Stadium tonight in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 clash.
The Gunners are the heavy underdogs for the game, despite playing at home and sitting second in the Premier League table, as the formidable European champions come to town.
Arsene Wenger has made several changes from the side that beat Liverpool 2-1 on Sunday. Wojciech Szczesny, Bacary Sagna, Kieran Gibbs, Jack Wilshere and Santi Cazorla all return to the starting eleven.
However, the big story is that youngster Yaya Sanogo retains his place in attack meaning Olivier Giroud remains on the bench. Tomas Rosicky is also among the subs with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeping his place on the wing.
Here are the confirmed line-ups:
Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Gibbs, Flamini, Wilshere, Ozil, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Sanogo
Subs: Fabianski, Monreal, Jenkinson, Rosicky, Gnabry, Podolski, Giroud
Neuer; Lahm, Boateng, Dante, Alaba; Martinez; Robben, Kroos, Thiago, Götze; Mandzukic
Subs: Starke, van Buyten, Rafinha, Pizarro, Müller, Contento, Schweinsteiger
