Lahm: Bayern targeting victory at Arsenal

Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has warned Arsenal that his side will not settle for a draw in their Champions League last-16 first leg tie at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

The Germany fullback has acknowledged that the Gunners will provide his team with a tough contest and is expecting Arsene Wenger's side to take a defensive approach to the game.

"Of course we're looking forward to the match," he told TZ. "Arsenal are an absolutely top-class opponent. We are going to travel to London now and lay the groundwork [for the second leg].

"I don't think Arsenal will play offensively and leave us a lot of room. It will be similar to our recent Bundesliga matches. We're going there to win."
