thumbnail Hello,

The Roten captain is full of confidence ahead of their Champions League clash with the north Londoners, having won all of their games in 2013 without conceding a league goal

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has warned Arsenal his side will not settle for a draw in their Champions League last-16 first leg tie at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

The Germany full-back has acknowledged that the Gunners will provide his team with a tough contest and is expecting Arsene Wenger's side to take a defensive approach to the game.

But the 29-year-old is confident that the Bundesliga giants can progress if they secure a good result in London on Tuesday night, and has set his sights on a victory.

"Of course we're looking forward to the match," he told TZ. "Arsenal are an absolutely top-class opponent. We are going to travel to London now and lay the groundwork [for the second leg].

"I don't think Arsenal will play offensively and leave us a lot of room. It will be similar to our recent Bundesliga matches. We're going there to win."

Bayern are yet to concede a Bundesliga goal in 2013, and winger Thomas Muller added that his side are full of confidence at the moment.

"Winning to nil makes me particularly happy. Never having to worry about losing a match is a great feeling. It's a feeling of power!"

Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer meanwhile is also confident of a favourable result in London after recording a 2-0 triumph over Wolfsburg on Friday.

"It's good that we won against Wolfsburg," he added. "That way, we can travel to London with a positive result and a good feeling."
