The footballers of FC Bayern Munich want to present in front of a large crowd in the first leg of the quarter-finals of the Champions League against WFC Arsenal. "I think our chances are good against Arsenal," said national striker Lea Schüller before the game on Tuesday (6.45 p.m. / DAZN) of the German Press Agency. "We're in a good mood at the moment and we've already shown against Barcelona, for example, that we can win against very strong opponents."
The German runners-up are hoping for more than 20,000 spectators in the Allianz Arena. In the group game in December in the 3-1 win against FC Barcelona, 24,000 fans came - more than ever before. Last season, the German runners-up failed in the round of eight at Paris Saint-Germain. The French are the first-leg opponents of Bundesliga leaders VfL Wolfsburg on Wednesday (9 p.m. / DAZN) in the Prinzenpark. The two German top teams would meet in the semi-finals if they progressed. Irrespective of this, FC Bayern will challenge the defending champions to the top game in the league on Saturday.
The Bayern women have never won the title in the premier class, in 2022 Olympique Lyon triumphed in the final over Barcelona. "It's very good for Germany and the Bundesliga that two teams are consistently in the top eight in Europe," said coach Alexander Straus. "Of course, Wolfsburg and we at Bayern are both working hard to close this last gap to the absolute top in Europe. But for us at FCB that also means that we need more continuity. And that over several years."
Looking ahead to the Arsenal game, the Norwegian said: "We'll see where we stand once more. We're confident enough to say we can be dangerous for them."
