Arsenal fans will yet again get to see Bayern Munich at close quarters, but how will they fare against Olympiakos and Dynamo Zagreb?

Bayern Munich

Coach: Pep Guardiola

Star turn: Thomas Muller

The German trophy winning machine were one of the A-listers Arsenal were eager to avoid in the Champions League draw and they will have back-to-back games against Guardiola’s German kings mid-way through this group.

Olympiakos

Coach: Marco Silva

Star turn: Kostas Fortounis

The Greek champions enjoy plenty of easy games on home soil, but their failure to make an impression in the Champions League since their appearance in the quarter-finals 16 years ago confirms they have lacked quality at the highest level for many years.

Dynamo Zagreb

Coach: Zoran Mamic

Star turn: Armin Hodzic

The Croatian champions appear to be one of the weakest teams in the competition and Arsenal will get a chance to start their Champions League campaign on a positive note when they travel to Zagreb next Wednesday.
