ARSENAL HAVE THE ADVANTAGE OVER BAYERN - GUARDIOLA

The Catalan coach has suggested a pointless

start to their Champions League campaign gives

the Gunners the edge over the German

champions.

Pep Guardiola thinks the necessity for Arsenal

to defeat Bayern Munich will give them the

upper hand in their Champions League clash.

Arsene Wenger's men suffered a 2-1 defeat to

Dinamo Zagreb in their opening fixture before

going down 3-2 at home to Olympiacos, while

the Bavarian giants lead the way in Group F with

maximum points.

The Spaniard thinks the increased pressure on

Arsenal will aid them as they have no option but

to put in their best performance.

"In this situation, they have the advantage. They

have to win. That means they'll try to put in a

perfect performance," Guardiola said on

Monday.

"We must fight against it. We have to play very

intelligently. For me, it doesn't matter they still

have no points.

"When I analyse a team I never look at a table, I

don't care about that. I have to analyse them

like they have six points.

"They have great technical qualities; they are

very difficult to play against."

Bayern were hopeful Kingsley Coman would be

fit to feature at the Emirates Stadium as he

travelled with the squad despite picking up a

thigh injury while representing France

Under-21s.

However, Guardiola has suggested the

Frenchman and Douglas Costa, who was rested

for the 1-0 win over Werder Bremen on

Saturday, may not be ready for Tuesday.

"The injured [players] have not trained in the

last two days," he added. "Costa is a bit better;

Coman probably needs a little more time.

Tomorrow at noon we will decide on their

roles."
