Arsenal’s head coach Mikel Arteta is facing the crucial question of whether his key players, Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard, will be fit for their upcoming UEFA Champions League clash against Bayern Munich. The Gunners, who are currently sitting in the 2nd position on the Premier League table with 71 points in the ongoing 2023/24 campaign, are gearing up for a challenging quarter-final showdown against the German powerhouse.

Following a disappointing 2-0 loss against Aston Villa in their recent Premier League fixture at the Emirates Stadium, Arteta is hoping to have both Saka and Odegaard available for selection. The manager expressed his optimism during a media interaction, stating, “Hopefully both Saka and Ødegaard will be fit for tomorrow, we had a short time to recover. We will assess them and see how they are, how they feel.”

With Manchester City leading the league with 73 points and Liverpool closely trailing in the 3rd spot with the same number of points as Arsenal but with fewer goals, Arteta understands the significance of having his key players in optimal condition for the crucial European tie. The first leg at the Emirates Stadium ended in a 2-2 draw, setting up an intense battle for the coveted semi-final spot at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday, 17th April, 2024.

The outcome of Saka and Odegaard’s fitness assessments will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in Arteta’s tactical planning and team selection as Arsenal aim to overcome the Bayern Munich challenge and advance in the prestigious Champions League competition. Fans and pundits alike will be eagerly awaiting updates on the availability of these influential players as the high-stakes encounter draws closer.

I am a very stubborn person who is always very argumentative in football discussions but I always win. I like writing about transfer news most.
