Champions League ties do not get much tougher than an away trip to Bayern Munich.

Aaron Ramsey knows that feeling all too well, having visited the Bundesliga giants three times during his nine years in north London.

The Wales midfielder will not be available for Wednesday’s tie at the Allianz due to a calf injury suffered against Watford, but has been on hand to advise his teammates on the best way to approach the first leg.

“Bayern are a fantastic team with very gifted individuals and they all understand their role in the side,” Ramsey told Arsenal Player.

“It’s going to be important for us to match their commitment and get stuck into them to try to stop them and playing. We need to go out there and enjoy ourselves by playing the football that we know we’re capable of playing.

“We’re a very technically gifted team and on our day we can play some fantastic football. It’s going to be important for us to move the ball quickly and hopefully play around them, in between the lines to create opportunities.

“We’ve had a few good results against them like that 2-0 win at home, and we beat them 2-0 away as well, so we can beat them on our day. It’s just going to be important for us to stay in the game, get something, get a good result in the first leg and then come back to the Emirates so that we can hopefully have enough to go through.”

 

More polls coming soon!
