Thomas Muller has warned Arsenal that Bayern Munich will exact revenge on the Gunners at the Allianz Arena following their 2-0 loss at the Emirates. Arsene Wenger's men kept a good defensive shape and hit Bayern on the counter, who had Manuel Neuer to thank for a few crucial saves in the first half.
The Gunners got their first goal following a rare error by the German goalkeeper, who misjudged the flight of Santi Cazorla's free-kick, allowing Olivier Giroud to run in behind and score the goal with his face. The second goal was down to Hector Bellerin's pace, who ran down the right flank and put in a delectable ball for Mesut Ozil to put the result beyond doubt.
This was Arsenal's first home win against Bayern in the Champions league games played in the recent past, having lost the previous two encounters on home soil. The Gunners, however, have an enviable record in the return leg, drawing and winning a game each in the reverse fixtures. However, Muller is confident that a similar result wont be repeated this time around and insists that the Bundesliga Champions will be better prepared to take on the Gunners when they meet them on home soil.
"We lead our group and have a home game. We know it won't be easy - it is the same team who beat us," Muller said, as quoted by the Evening Standard. "Only the location changes but we know that we are strong at home. With the fan support we can come away with more points than we did here," declared the German forward.
"Football at this level is never a clear thing. It is always close. We had the game under control, especially in the part of the game where they scored.
"They countered us a couple of times. Arsenal have very good players for counter-attacks, who are very fast and have good technique. All in all we did more right than we did wrong but in sport you can always lose," he added.
