Arsenal boss Wenger calls on ref to be strong in Munich

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has called on ref Svein Oddvar Moen to be strong in tonight's Champions League clash at Bayern Munich.

Wenger hopes history does not repeat itself again on Wednesday night.

"We have played a few times with 10 men in Europe and always under very special circumstances - in the Champions League final, now against Bayern," Wenger said.

"When we played at Barcelona when we were in a position to qualify, it was a second yellow card and the only time I have seen that since I (have) watched European football, when (Robin) van Persie was sent off (for kicking the ball away), so I hope tomorrow we get a fair chance to play with 11 against 11 until the end."
