Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has warned his Germany teammate Jerome Boateng after the Gunners were drawn with their old enemies Bayern Munich in the last-16 of Champions League.

arsenal-training-sessionOzil is confident that his side will finally edge past the last-16 hurdle in the Champions League this season after being drawn to face Bayern Munich in the knockout stages for the third time in five years.

Arsenal and Bayern Munich had locked horns with each other in the group stages last year, where Wenger’s side won 2-0 at Emirates but suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat to Bayern at the Allianz Arena.

For the last six seasons, Arsenal have failed to progress beyond the last-16 hurdle in the Champions League.

The Gunners have also failed to reach the final since suffering a defeat to Barcelona in 2006.
