Pep warns Bayern

Berlin: Coach Pep Guardiola has warned record-breaking Bayern Munich to expect ‘big problems’ against Arsenal if they gift the Gunners too much possession in Tuesday's Champions League last 16, second-leg.

European champions Bayern hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg in London and warmed-up for Tuesday’s clash at Munich’s Allianz Arena with a 6-1 drubbing of Wolfsburg in the league on Saturday.

Guardiola is all too aware that Arsenal claimed a 2-0 win in Munich at the same stage in Europe last season, although Bayern went through on away goals to eventually win the final. “If we give Arsenal too much possession, we will have big, big problems,” warned Guardiola.

“If we keep the ball, we'll get into the quarter-finals, if they control it, they'll go through.” (Agencies)
