Arsenal will travel to Munich to face Bayern

After being observed in training on Tuesday morning, Martin Odegaard seems to have handed Arsenal a significant boost ahead of their Champions League matchup against Bayern Munich.

Before their departure to Germany later this afternoon, Mikel Arteta’s team practised at the club’s London Colney training facility.

After Leandro Trossard’s equaliser secured a 2-2 draw last week, the quarterfinal match is intriguingly poised, and even if away goals are no longer an issue, Arsenal will still be optimistic about their prospects of moving on.But after Sunday’s humiliating loss to Aston Villa, which saw Manchester City seize complete control of the Premier League championship race, Arteta has to uplift everyone’s spirits.

In the last moments of the match against Villa, with his team frantically looking for a goal to break the tie, Odegaard was brought on as a replacement.

Arteta was only ready to say that he had “a leg issue” and would not go into further detail about why he had pulled his captain.Odegaard’s apparent unavailability will undoubtedly raise Arsenal’s prospects of pulling off what would be a historic triumph at the Allianz Arena, but they will need to muster a strong response following last weekend’s crushing loss.

We’re gutted and disappointed we’ve lost a massive game but, it’s time for a reaction. We’ve been on such an amazing run since January, won so many football matches, and got ourselves back into an unbelievable position after being written off at Christmas,’ said Declan Rice in the aftermath of a seismic setback.

‘Now that reaction starts in the Champions League against Bayern, so we’ll be ready for that.We have to park this to the side now. It’s gone, it’s a game of football. We’ve lost but we need to bounce back, that’s for sure.

‘It’s a great chance for us to get into a Champions League semi-final. Going to the Allianz Arena, it’s going to be a special night. It’s time to pull our socks up and show everyone why we’re in this position.
