Manuel Neuer has told his Bayern Munich team-mates that they must stifle Arsenal’s passing game if they are to win at the Emirates on Wednesday.

The Bavarians defeated Arsene Wenger’s side from the Champions League on away goals last term en route to the title but were made to survive a scare when the Gunners won 2-0 at the Allianz Arena.

However, the Germany goalkeeper is optimistic over his side’s chances of winning in north London once more as they prepare for a rematch.

“We need to put in a good performance as a team and act decisively,” he told reporters.

“I hope that we get into the same spaces as Arsenal when they try to pass neatly. We have to stop them. It’s going to be huge, we go the most exciting draw with Arsenal.

“We are confident and we want to win there.”

Arsenal and Bayern Munich are scheduled to kick off at 20:45CET on Wednesday.
