Boateng bemoans 'toughest' draw
Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng believes Arsenal are the toughest opponents the reigning European champions could have drawn to face in the first knock-out round.
The Gunners beat Bayern 2-0 in Munich at the same stage last season but went out on away goals - the German side having won 3-1 at the Emirates.
Arsenal now have Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil in their ranks, and Boateng admitted: "They're the toughest opponents we could have had. They'll be totally up for it after what happened last year. Both matches will be very intense."
