The Gunners could meet Bayern for the fourth time in five years, with supporters hoping to avoid a repeat of the last few encounters with the German giants

Bayern Munich's US twitter account teased Arsenal by claiming the duo would once again meet in the Champions League knockout stage - prompting a lot of pleading from Gunners fans.

The Bundesliga side knocked out Arsenal in both the 2012-13 and 2013-2014 seasons, with Bayern also beating them 5-1 in the group stage in November 2015.

With Arsenal topping their group and Bayern coming second, they could be set to face off for the fourth time in five years - something Bayern Munich's American account seemed to enjoy.

However, Gunners fans did not share the sentiment, looking to avoid the German giants - with some supporters even begging the 'football Gods' to keep them apart in the knockout stage draw.
