Arsenal striker Thierry Henry has warned Bayern Munich that Wednesday’s Champions League encounter between the two teams is not a foregone conclusion.
Arsenal trail 3-1 from the first leg and Henry admitted the odds favoured the German team.

“Then again, football is about winning. I will be happy if we can turn things around but I won’t be over the moon.
“If we lose in the quarter-finals after beating Bayern Munich, that won’t do anything fo
