Dante: The Brazilian centre-back hopes to knock Arsenal out of the Champions Lea

The German club hold a 3-1 advantage and are expected to eliminate their English visitors in the second leg of their UEFA Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday night.

Progress to the quarter-finals in Europe would keep runaway Bundesliga leaders and German Cup semi-finalists Bayern on course for a historic season.

With favours from elsewhere, Bayern could win the league title at Eintracht Frankfurt on 6th April and Dante, who has been a star signing since joining last summer from Borussia Monchengladbach, said: "The season is not over yet.

"Of course, until now it has been great. In the Bundesliga we have a very good advantage and depending on other results we could win it all in three more games.

"However, we also want to win the German Cup and go as far as possible in the Champions League."

Dante is in no doubt Bayern have the quality to win the Champions League, having seen his then club-to-be only suffer a painful defeat on penalties by Chelsea in last season's final.

He said: "I believe it does," when asked about Bayern's potential to win the tournament at Wembley stadium.

"Last year, this team almost did it. We are very hungry for titles and we are working very hard to achieve them. It is not easy, of course, but we are striving for it."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
