Why you should back Bayern Munich 

Harry Kane got off to a strong start in the Champions League, recording four goals over his first four contests. The 30-year-old English striker then endured a three-game slump before returning to form. Kane registered his second brace of the competition in Bayern's 3-0 victory against Lazio in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie and also converted in the draw with Arsenal last week.

Kane has been one of the top offensive players in the UCL, as he ranks first with seven goals and is tied for seventh with three assists. Bayern will need him to be at his best on Wednesday, considering two of the four players on the club with two goals in the competition - forward Serge Gnabry (hamstring) and winger Kingsley Coman (groin) will be unavailable. Midfielder Jamal Musiala and forward Mathys Tel also have scored twice and are expected to be on the pitch, while defender Raphael Guerreiro and forward Thomas Muller, who converted in the club's second-leg match against Lazio, both scored in Die Roten's 2-0 win versus Cologne in the German Bundesliga on Saturday. See which team to pick here.

Why you should back Arsenal

The Gunners' defense has been practically impenetrable on the road across all competitions of late. The club has allowed a total of one goal over its last six matches away from home and posted a clean sheet in each of the past three. The Gunners have conceded a total of five times in their four UCL road games but yielded just one goal in three of those contests.

Arsenal have received strong offensive contributions from several different players, as Bukayo SakaLeandro Trossard and Gabriel Jesus share the team lead with four goals apiece. Saka and Trossard both converted against Bayern in the first leg, while the latter also scored in the Gunners' 1-0 triumph over Porto in the second leg of their Round of 16 tie. The 22-year-old Saka is tied for the UCL lead with four assists and Gabriel has notched three. See which team to pick here.
