Familiar foe Kane a big threat to Arsenal

Sky Sports’ Nick Wright:

“Bayern Munich may not be as strong as in previous years but another meeting with Harry Kane is probably not something Arsenal will relish.

“The 30-year-old has an outstanding record against the Gunners, scoring 14 goals in 17 north London derbies during his time at Tottenham.

“He will face them again in the midst of one of the best goalscoring seasons of his career, having netted 36 times in only 34 appearances in all competitions so far.”

Barcelona will take on Paris Saint-Germain while Borussia Dortmund play against Atletico Madrid in the other quarter-final ties.

Arsenal and Man City will face each other in the semi-finals if they progress.

Bayern fans banned from the Emirates
