Arsenal v Bayern München - Champions League Boot Preview

Champions League returns the week, and tonight's game between Arsenal and Bayern München is surely one of the top picks of this round, overshadowed perhaps only by tomorrow's Paris Saint-Germain v Real Madrid.

Arsenal Boot XI v Bayern Munich

Not many new boots have been released lately, meaning we'll see more from last month's Adidas and Nike releases on the pitch tonight. Arsenal's key men Alexis Sánchez and Mesut Özil will sport the two big brands' latest innovations on the pitch, lacing up in the Squadron Blue Nike Mercurial Superfly and the revolutionary Adidas Ace Primeknit boots, respectively.

Apart from that, Arsenal's expected lineup features three Puma evoSPEED players, highlighting the German brand's attempt to sign up Arsenal players since it became kit supplier last year. evoPOWER wearer Olivier Giroud could also appear in attack.

Another interesting spot for the boot connoisseur, Theo Walcott continues to play in Adidas adizero f50 boots camouflaged to look like the Adidas X.

Bayern München Boot Lineup v Arsenal

Bayern Munich's boot XI consists entirely of Adidas and Nike players, with the 3 Stripes enjoying a slim 6-to-5 advantage, at least in our expected selection.

Unfortunately, one might say, Robert Lewandowski is back in the regular Nike Hypervenom Phantom IIs as the stunning customized Hypervenom boots Nike unveiled earlier this month appear to have been exclusive to the striker's last couple of international games with Poland.
