Huge Soccer fan from US. 15 yrs. old. favorite teams are FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC
We can all admit that Arsenal are huge underdogs against Bayern Munich. With huge stars like Mario Gomez and Manuel Neuer Bayern seem unbeatable. We can’t forget the champions league final though. The whole world was shocked to see that the German giants were taken down, even more surprising they were taken down by Chelsea! This was without Eden Hazard and Oscar. Chelsea did have Drogba however. Another thing to think about is Chelsea beat Barcelona. Both games Chelsea were the underdogs. We see this with Arsenal playing Bayern. Lets talk about Arsenal. I give them a 7 on defense. I would get more specific on why but the computer i’m typing on is shit and it would take to long to look up how to spell their defenders names. I mean come on mertesaker? Is that how you spell it? Anyway, moving on to the midfield. The only reason I think Arsenal could win is because of Santi Cazorla. Santi Cazorla is like a Spanish Steven Gerrard. He has great passes and vision and if you give him the right ball in front of net he will put it away. Next is the more attacking version of Arsenal with the likes of Lukas Podolski and Giroud. We have seen that Giroud is pretty good at heading the ball. Also we have seen that Lukas Podolski is good at crossing the ball. This is a good conection. I feel that if Cazorla, Podolski, and Giroud are all on their A game they might stand a chance against Bayern. Now lets talk about Gervinho. Gervinho sucks. Thats all I’m going to say. Bayern Munich is a very powerful team. I give their defense a 10 Alaba and Lahm are great wing backs and are always coming up to work with their offense. Donte is a big black Brazilian defender with an afro. What more could you ask for? We can’t forget Neuer. Having him in goal is like having a brick wall in front of the net. But like I said before. It isn’t impossible to score on Neuer. Bayern’s Mid-Field is extremely Overpowered. Where do I begin. Schwienstager, Mueller, Kroos, Ribery, Robben. There is too much to get too detailed with each one but Kroos Schwienstager, and Robben all have a great shot and Mueller and Ribery are both smart on and off the ball and are pretty fast. Last but not least is Mario Gomez. There are 3 great things in Mario Gomez. 1. Height- Gomez is the perfect man to win headers in the air and he does this with 2. Strength- Gomez uses his strength to win headers in the air and to fight off defenders when running with the ball. 3. Gomez has a good shot. After typing all that stuff about Bayerns team I really don’t feel Arsenal have a chance of beating them. Then again I thought that about Chelsea beating Barcelona and Chelsea beating Bayern so I would’t completely rule out Arsenal just yet.
