Arsenal, Lyon to fight to stay in hunt

sports Updated: Aug 22, 2011 23:42 IST

Arsenal take a 1-0 lead to Italy on Wednesday for the second leg of their Champions League play-off against Udinese, while Bayern Munich and Lyon also look to clinch places in the group stage. However, Udinese will be hopeful of turning the tie around at home, especially as the English outfit's fragile confidence took another hit at the weekend when they went down 2-0 at home to Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich -- who dream of going all the way to a final which will be held in their own Allianz Arena -- have more than one foot in the group stages after beating FC Zurich 2-0 in last week's first leg.

The Bavarians head to Switzerland further boosted by a superb performance in beating Hamburg 5-0 in the Bundesliga at the weekend.
