Pep Guardiola has claimed that Arsenal have the advantage ahead of their clash against Bayern Munich at The Emirates on Tuesday night.

The Gunners are searching for their first Champions League group-stage win after back-to-back defeats by Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiacos.

They’ll try to put in a perfect performance

The north Londoners come up against the reigning Bundesliga champions and Group F leaders Bayern, who have a 100 per cent record in this season’s competition.

But Bayern manager Guardiola, whose side have scored four goals on five occasions this term, believes Arsenal will attempt to produce a “perfect performance” in north London.

“In this situation, they have the advantage. They have to win. That means they’ll try to put in a perfect performance,” Guardiola is quoted as saying at his pre-match media conference.

“We must fight against it. We have to play very intelligently. For me, it doesn’t matter they still have no points.

“When I analyse a team I never look at a table, I don’t care about that. I have to analyse them like they have six points.”

Arsenal are in second place in the Premier League and two points behind leaders Manchester City after a 3-0 win at Watford on Saturday evening.
