Arsene Wenger set to make bizarre change for Munich clash


Arsene Wenger has risked the wrath of Arsenal fans once more as they prepare to face Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The Gunners need a major trophy to placate the Emirates faithful, especially given the number of empty seats at the Hull game on Saturday.

However, Wenger has made a huge call, per the Mirror, that could affect their chances of escaping Bavaria still in the last-16 tie.

David Ospina is set to play in goal instead of Petr Cech – the latter being the only player at the club who has experienced winning the Champions League.

The same source claims that senior players have raised eyebrows over the move.


Cech is winding down and is likely to be the club’s second choice next season, but for the remainder of the current campaign, he must have thought he’d be playing in the big games.

It’s not entirely surprising since for the sake of rotation, Ospina has been number one in Europe. In the group stage, though, the Colombian kept just two clean sheets out of a possible six, and they came against Ludogorets and Basel.

Wenger promised Ospina that he would get to play their Champions League games in a bid to convince him to stay in north London last summer, but he’s risking a great deal by staying true to his word.
