Arsène Wenger admits that the Club has “unfinished business” with the Champions League on the eve of their last-16 clash with Bayern Munich.

The Gunners reached the final of Europe’s premier club competition in 2006, only for Jens Lehmann to be sent off as they lost to Barcelona in Paris.

And on the back of their surprise FA Cup exit at the hands of Blackburn Rovers, Wenger says the Champions League has now taken on even more significance.

“It is massive for us,” he said. “Not because of what happened on Saturday but because we started the season with a lot of scepticism.

“I think we have made improvements and it would be nice for us to continue with this improvement until the end of the season.

“Of course [the competition] is unfinished business as long as you don’t win it. If I say to you we will win it this season you will laugh at me because we just lost against Blackburn. But it can happen - football is not predictable.”
