The dates for Arsenal's Champions League round of 16 tie against Bayern Munich has been confirmed by UEFA.

The draw for the first knockout stage of this seasons edition of the tournament was conducted today and unfortunately the Gunners got the much-dreaded Bayern Munich even after finishing as group leaders.

It will be a two-legged fixture as usual. The first will be played at the Allianz Arena on February 15, 2017, shortly after we must have played a home game against Hull City in the Premier League.

Bayern Munich will then pay us a visit at our own ground on March 7, 2017. That will be just three days after our clash with Liverpool at Anfield.

The only advantage we have for finishing first in our group is that we will be playing away before getting a visit at home.

However, that will only be of use if we get a good result in our away fixture. That way, we'll be confident we can finish it up at the Emirates Stadium.
