PETR CECH will be in goal for Arsenal when they take on Bayern Munich, Arsene Wenger has confirmed.The Arsenal No.1 will come in for his first Champions League game for the club having sat out for David Ospina in the defeats to Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos.
Ospina, the Colombia stopper, has a shoulder injury and will miss the tie with the German champions.
Ospina made a howler against Olympiakos, dropping the ball across the line to give the Greeks the lead, in the second group game.Wenger came under fire for the decision to go with Ospina ahead of summer signing Cech, who has played in every league game so far.
Cech, other than the opening day to West Ham, has been flawless since his arrival at the emirates.
Arsenal go into the double header with Bayern without a point in the Champions League and Wenger admits he hasn’t taken the first two games seriously enough.
“We have the needed belief and confidence that we are doing something right so that helps,” wenger said.
“We maybe could be a little suspected of not taking the first two games of not taking the opponent seriously enough so this time this is not the threat.
“So let’s take the positives of our Premier League and as well get the right focus that you get when you play a big opponent.” But the Frenchman believes his side is capable of getting at Bayern.
“I believe as well we have some ground to make up in Europe as we have not been at our requested level in our first two games,” he said.
“Our focus has been much stronger in the Premier League than it has been in Europe and we know in this game the focus needs to be exactly the same than in the in Premier League.”
He added: “There is no team without weaknesses. Guardiola is a very good manager.
“He has done a magnificent job at Barcelona and Bayern. He has a positive philosophy.”
Arsenal have Gabriel back after the 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday.
