Jupp Heynckes says that his Bayern Munich players will not take it easy against Arsenal at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has warned his players against complacency ahead of their Champions League last-16 second-leg clash against Arsenal.

The German club won the first leg 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium in London last month.

"We had a very good day against Arsenal [in the first leg]; the first half was excellent, the second quite good," he told reporters. "But Arsenal are still Arsenal. For many years they have played great football. I remember [last season] Arsenal lost the first leg 4-0 to Milan but then won 3-0 at home, nearly scoring a fourth goal.

"We are not paying attention to the hype around us. People are saying we are the best team in Europe; that does not affect us.

"There are so many strong teams in Europe and to reach the final you always need a little luck. So my team remains calm and down to earth. We have a long way to go."

The second leg will be held at the Allianz Arena in Munich on Wednesday.
