Odegaard Unfazed by Kane’s Threat Ahead of Arsenal, Bayern Munich Clash

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard has asserted that his team remains undaunted by the looming challenge posed by Harry Kane, despite the striker’s formidable form for Bayern Munich.

The England captain is braced to encounter a potentially hostile reception at the Emirates Stadium during Tuesday evening’s Champions League quarter-final first leg, owing to his longstanding association with Arsenal’s fierce rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.

Kane, boasting 38 goals across all competitions since his transfer from Spurs to Bayern last summer, presents a formidable threat to Arsenal’s European aspirations.

The Gunners are acutely aware of Kane’s prowess, given his track record of 14 goals in 19 encounters against them during his tenure with Spurs.

However, Odegaard is unfazed, saying: “(He’s) a good player, of course, and I have played against him a few times and we know the quality he has in the box and he is also good in the link up,” adding “We are facing a good team on Tuesday.

“I think we should respect him but I don’t think we should fear anyone and we should focus on ourselves and the quality we have in our team. And that is all.”

“They have had some strange results in the league but if you look at the team, you can see the quality they have, and we know that, we know they are a really strong side,” Odegaard added.

“(They have) really good individual players as well. It will be a tough battle. But we are ready.”
