Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has refused to rule Arsenal out of the Champions League tie between the sides despite the Bundesliga leaders taking a commanding 3-1 victory from the first leg, Sky Sports has reported.

Goals from Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic gave the German side a convincing win at the Emirates Stadium, with former Bayern forward Lukas Podolski netting for the Gunners.


Schweinsteiger, who is suspended for the second leg after picking up a booking on Tuesday evening, believes Arsenal still represent dangerous opponents.


Speaking to Bayern’s official website, he said: “We mustn't underestimate Arsenal, they have some very good players, and we'll have to give it 100 per cent in the return.” Schweinsteiger added: “Arsenal aren't just dropping by as tourists. It's a good result, but it's not over yet.


But Schweinsteiger also heavily praised Bayern’s first leg performance, crediting a strong start for why Bayern were able to dominate the match. He said: “We really got going well, especially in the first 30 minutes, when we let the ball and our opponents do the work. We were ruthless, especially in terms of taking our chances, but the third goal was vital too.


The return leg is to be played on March 13 at Bayern’s Allianz Arena, the site of last year’s final, in which Bayern lost on penalties to Chelsea.
