Bayern Munich star Thiago Alcantara, believes the pressure will be on Arsenal and not Bayern, when the two teams go toe to toe on Wednesday night, as per Four Four Two.

The Spanish international has claimed that Bayern will head in to the game knowing the onus to get a result is on Arsenal.

The German side suffered their first defeat of the season at The Emirates two weeks ago and consequently, the heat has been turned up in the build up to this game as Arsenal look to get their Champions League campaign back on track.

Just three points separate the sides in Group F and a win for Arsenal could really throw Bayern’s hopes of winning the competition in doubt.

“We have no particular pressure on us tomorrow,” Thiago said.

“The important thing is that we realise how Arsenal play, then we can be aware of it.

“Both teams have to score goals, so Arsenal will not be so defensive like the others. They want to play like us.

“We know that we are playing against one of the best teams in Europe, but we have the chance to bring back the three points.”

Thiago has been a key performer for Bayern this season, especially in the Champions League, where he scored a hat trick against Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb.

However, no doubt the 24-year-old will be looking to get on the score sheet again against Arsenal, as they look to redress their 2-0 defeat in London.
