The draw for the round of 16 in the Champions League have been made and its been generating a lot of reaction from fans and pundit.
Arsenal have faced Bayern in two of the last four years at this stage of the competition, as well as facing them in the group stages last season, and have now continued that recent trend.
However, Thierry Henry believes Arsenal stand a chance of progressing to the quarter finals despite seen as the underdogs.
Oh my gosh,’ he laughed. ‘Wooo.
‘I don’t know why I had a feeling they would play Real Madrid or Bayern.
‘It seems like that’s the way it is.
‘But again, I remember when we drew Real Madrid the year we went to the final in 2006 with Arsenal.
‘I remember people being like it’s over for Arsenal. And I remember guys saying ah yeah we can be happy because they finished second so we were the so-called first team in the group everybody wanted to play.
‘But we reached the final and managed to beat Real Madrid. If I was a player now I would take that as a challenge.
‘People think we can’t beat them. We played them before, we lost. If you want to win the Champions League you have to at one point, you’ll have to play against Bayern, Barcelona or Real Madrid or whoever.
‘So why not now? They have to go out there and beat them.’
