Real time, real news: Goal.com LIVE! brings you the action as it happens.
Brendon Netto: Arsenal 0-3 Bayern. Done and dusted
Aman Arora: Arsenal 2-1 Bayern Munich
Aditya Bajaj: 2-0 to Bayern
Mrunal Nakashe: 0-3 Bayern Munich this could be a very difficult night for Wenger.
Shikharr Chandra: Arsenal 1-1 Bayern. All to play for in the second leg
Brendon Netto: Bayern have an embarrassment of riches in attack with Mandzukic in particular being in top form but if I had to pick out one player who could really make an impact for them tonight, it would have to be Ribery. Even though Arsenal don't have a natural left-back available tonight, I still consider Sagna to be the weakest-link in defense. Ribery could have a field day against him.
Mrunal Nakashe: Van Buyten is the only real weakness for me at centre-back not too much pace and if Arsenal can play balls in behind him that will be a source of joy elsewhere will be interesting to see what the Likes of Podolski and Walcott can do out on the flank.
Brendon Netto: One word - Walcott. He could be the home side's best weapon tonight. His pace is simply electric and a ball over the top from either Wilshere, Arteta or Cazorla could set him off. David Alaba is not an easy full-back to beat one on one but Walcott can get around him if he times his runs well. The Englishman has been in good form this season and Arsenal will be hoping he can come up trumps again.
Aditya Bajaj: Van Buyten is a weakness on counter attacks because of his lack of pace, but he's gigantic and taking the aerial route against him will be difficult.
Bayern have the best defense in the European leagues so far this season. Where do you think Arsenal could look to breach that sturdy back-line?
Brendon Netto: Wilshere up against Schweinsteiger is obviously one of the more eye-catching battles. It will be interesting to see how the two fare tonight. However, I think Ribery vs Sagna could be the most decisive battle. The winger is in top form and I expect him to run riot against the full-back tonight who hasn't been at his best since returning from injury. He has been caught out of position often, especially in their game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and if he falters tonight, Ribery will take full advantage.
Aditya Bajaj: Podolski is playing against his former side, but may find it hard as Lahm knows him better than anyone else both from the national team and their time together at Bayern.
Aman Arora points out two key battles: Wilshere vs Bastian Schweinsteiger and Podolski vs Lahm.
Mrunal Nakashe: Arsene Wenger has backed himself into a corner with that rant in the pre-match press conference the world is watching and the fans wil expect a performance tonight he may have the board's backing but there's only so much they can take as well they won't make it all the way to Wembley but progression in this is crucial or their season could fizzle out. 8 years without a trophy is way too much for a club of Arsenal's stature he is displaying signs of a man under pressure he knows the pressure is on.
Brendon Netto: The relevance of the questions from the media is not the issue here. As the manager of such a big club, you have to expect that the media are going to ask you some tough questions. Going on the offensive is not the best way to approach it. He had to be more tactful than that and in all honesty, his reaction won't instill much confidence in his team. It may well affect them tonight?
Mrunal Nakashe: This one is pretty even. Home advantage will count but I am going with Malaga to nick that away goal 2-1 Porto.
Shikharr Chandra: Porto to win but Malaga to get the vital away goal: 2-1
Brendon Netto: Porto 2-1 Malaga
Mrunal Nakashe: Pellegrini's European experience will surely give Malaga a slight edge in what is a finely balanced tie on paper they will look to play their normal game they have no pressure no one expected them to lose all eyes are on Porto they are the more established European force that suits Malga perfectly.
Brendon Netto: He is a very experienced manager and he did win the UEFA cup with Villareal back in 2004 so it will give them a slight advantage to have him in their dugout. He knows how to get the best out of his players and he will have them geared up for tonight. I doubt they will play only on the counter, he'll be more ambitious than that.
Shikharr Chandra: Malaga have the fire power. We saw in the Spanish League how they overcame Real Madrid with ease. They have got the likes of Isco, Roque Santa Cruz and an exciting young talent in Lucas Piazon as well who was really impressive on his full debut for the club. I fancy Malaga to get an away goal.
Mrunal Nakashe: Although Porto's domestic stats are impressive in their own right the Champions League is a completely different kettle of fish a higher level sob this tie is pretty evenly split for me Malaga's strength is in attack and they will not sit back so there should be goals for both teams in this one
FC Porto have conceded just 9 goals in the Portuguese league this season and are on top of the table as well. Are Malaga capable of breaking them down especially at home?
Shikharr Chandra: Isco from Malaga and James Rodrigues from Porto. Both have been in flying form this season in the Champions league and have been their club's talisman in the league as well. James Rodrigues has managed to put aside the memories of Hulk and has been one of the rising stars in Europe.
Mrunal Nakashe: Malaga are in financial turmoil so their performance in the Champions League has been a pleasant surprise having lost a host of stars recently you have look at Isco in midfield as the diamond in the pack
this lad has every thing- quick feet, inteligence, incisive passing and an eye for goal if Malaga want a positive result on the night he has to make them tick
We ask our experts who they feel will be the key men from either sides and why?
