Despite having announced his retirement at the end of the season, the World Cup winner has been involved this term, making 23 appearances in all competitions.

The Gunners go to Germany looking to avenge for the 5-1 hammering they were on the end of when they went there back in 2015.

Furthermore, having not made it past the first knockout round of the competition for the last six years, Wenger will be looking for any advantage he can get in order to head back to north London with something to play for come the second leg.

Another bonus for the Frenchman is that former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti will also be without both Frank Ribery and Jerome Boateng.
