Bayern Munich head coach Pep Guardiola has claimed that Arsenal have the advantage ahead of Tuesday's Champions League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

Guardiola's side are in impressive form heading into the meeting with the Gunners thanks to 12 successive victories in all competitions.

However, the Bayern boss believes that Arsenal's need to win after losing their opening two Group F games gives them the edge over his side.

"In this situation, they have the advantage. They have to win. That means they'll try to put in a perfect performance," Guardiola told reporters.

"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."

Bayern will be without Arjen Robben after the visitors decided to leave the winger at home as he continues to recover from an adductor injury.
