*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Bayern Munich are the expected winners of this game with a probability of 41.7%, but we are expecting a tight and tense 90 minutes between the pair.

Bayern Munich ran out 2-0 winners at home to Cologne at the weekend but it wasn't enough to stop them from losing the league title to Bayer Leverkusen, while Arsenal lost ground in the title race as they were beaten 2-0 in their own backyard by Aston Villa.

Player to watch – Harry Kane

Whilst Harry Kane has done what Harry Kane does best, score goals for fun this season, his new club Bayern Munich saw their 11-year run at the top of German football come to an end at the weekend as Bayer Leverkusen lifted the title.

The Champions League is all Bayern have left to play for this season and winning this trophy is probably the only thing that could save Thomas Tuchel's job at this point. The form of Harry Kane could be what takes Bayern through to the semi-finals and possibly the final this season and the former Tottenham star would love nothing more than knocking the Gunners out of the competition this week.

Will the former Tottenham star have the last laugh on Wednesday?

Kane scored a penalty in the first leg and heads into Wednesday's clash having netted 11 times in his last ten matches for Bayern, so he has to be our player to watch in this game.
