Lukas Podolski believes Arsenal can dump his old club Bayern Munich out of the Champions League.

The Gunners have been paired with the Bundesliga leaders in the last-16 draw, with the first leg in London on February 19 and the return at the Allianz Arena in March.

Podolski, who spent three seasons at Bayern before his summer switch to the Emirates, believes Arsenal have what it takes to go through. The striker said: "They are a big club, but we can beat Bayern. They have great players like Mario Gomez, Franck Ribery and Bastian Schweinsteiger, but we'll see."
