MUNICH, APRIL 16: Bayern Munich manager Thomas Tuchel will seek to echo the spirit of 2021s Champions League-winning run with Chelsea in Wednesdays home quarter-final second leg against Arsenal.
Bayern put aside their domestic struggles in the first leg, returning from London with a 2-2 draw, another Harry Kane goal against his old foes and the knowledge victory in Germany will see them through to the final four.
With Xabi Alonsos Bayer Leverkusen already in possession of the Bundesliga trophy, the Champions League is now the only focus for Tuchels Bayern.
Being able to concentrate only on Europe is a luxury few of the teams remaining in the Champions League have, particularly Arsenal who are in the midst of a tense Premier League title race.
Tuchel was free to make his focus on Europe obvious, making seven changes in Saturdays hard-fought 2-0 home win over struggling Cologne.
Left out of the squad completely for the Cologne clash, captain Manuel Neuer and winger Leroy Sane were allowed to watch Saturdays win from the comfort of the grandstand.
Bayern will however face Arsenal missing several first teamers.
Canada defender Alphonso Davies is suspended, while forwards Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman are injured.
Tuchel would not be drawn on who would replace Davies on Wednesday, telling reporters after Saturdays win over Cologne he may "do something crazy".    —AFP
