The 28 year old Polish striker admitted the fact that they are not taking their opponent lightly but also thinks that if his side plays to their potential then Bayern will definitely come out flying colours.


Lewandowski believes that  they have what it takes to take down Arsenal but for that they have to play to their highest potential,

the undisputed kings of German football will lock horns against the  Gunners in the round of 16, the first match will take place at Allianz Arena.

Last Saturday they got an important win against Ingolstadt by 2-0 and the Polish international thinks that though it is irrelevant but the win  will help them a big way to boost up their confident when they will take on against Arsene Wenger's crew.

In the  recent past whenever these two sides have clashed against each other Bayern has  always came up as the better side and  also the fact that in 2012-2013 season Bayern won the treble.

Lewandowski believes that they need to take their opponents threat out of the equation to nullify their chances in the game.

he voiced: “The win in Ingolstadt was very important. Now we’re focused on the Champions League.

“Everyone’s waiting for this game. It will be a big challenge for us. I hope we can deliver a good performance and play really well here in Munich.

“Arsenal have very good footballers. They know what it means to play in the Champions League.

“We need to concentrate on ourselves. If we play our game then Arsenal probably won’t get many chances. But we must play well from back to front."
