Bastian Schweinsteiger is anticipating a tough match when Bayern Munich face Arsenal in the Champions League last 16.

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has admitted that he is anticipating a tough battle against Arsenal next week in the Champions League.

The German has said that the Gunners are "hard to play against" and his teammates will have to be at their best to knock the Londoners out.

"We didn't celebrate when we heard we'd drawn Arsenal," Schweinsteiger told the club's official website.

"They're hard to play against. They have a long tradition, but they're not a typically English team."

Bayern are currently 15 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga.
