MUNICH, Germany (AFP) - Arsene Wenger has said Arsenal must draw on all their European experience in their bid to over-turn a 3-1 first-leg deficit and beat Bayern Munich in Wednesday's Champions League last 16 clash.

Their task has been made more difficult without goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, star midfielder Jack Wilshere and defender Bacary Sagna.
