“Suits them.” Bastian Schweinsteiger reacts as Arsenal draws Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich icon Bastian Schweinsteiger has shared his thoughts on the Champions League draw, which pits his former team against Arsenal in the quarterfinals of the competition.

The Gunners recently navigated a challenging round of 16 encounter against FC Porto, demonstrating their readiness to face any opponent.

Throughout both legs of the match, the Portuguese side employed various defensive tactics in an attempt to gain an advantage over Arsenal.

Despite these challenges, Arsenal emerged victorious with a determined second-half performance, instilling confidence as they prepare to take on Bayern Munich.

However, Schweinsteiger appears to underestimate Arsenal’s capabilities, suggesting that the draw favours his former team.

Schweinsteiger tweeted:

“The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League did what it promised. Both German clubs are avoiding the big names for the time being and are allowed to play their second legs in front of their home crowd. 

“Nevertheless, I see BVB as an outsider in the game against Atleti’s team. The FC Bayern on the other hand, has shown in the past that Arsenal suits them and will do everything they can to reach the semi-finals.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

We love to be underdogs, but this time, we can beat Bayern at the Emirates and possibly in both legs.

The Bavarians are not having a good season, and we are now, so we are confident about this draw and our players can push their limits again and reach the semi-final of the competition.

Life is good for us Arsenal fans right now

  1. This is a mouth watering tie for the faithful and if it hasn’t dawn on any gooners yet then one needs to wake up quickly.

    The arena will be
    packed with gunners only, this is a massive boost if you ask me. Arsenal will be well advised to go for the jugular, a lovely 2 nil on home soil under the circumstances is not beyond us.
    This is a leg Arsenal has to play as if our life depends on it.

    Bryan have just lost one game at the Allianz all season and haven’t been beaten at home in the champions league since 2021, so nothing but a resounding win for us will do on the 9th of April.

  2. I love what Bastian has done

    The boys have taken note

    He should ask Ivan Toney and the Porto Coach what they witnessed after talking bad prior

    This is not the Arsenal under Wenger’s last years. Neither is it the Bayern team in their prime

    Arsenal will qualify easily

  3. No surprise the German picking the German.

    Doesn’t seem to consider we are top of the table in PL, a different animal since Dubai, and have shown 3 things this year.

    1. Easily the best defense in PL
    2. Can go tot to toe with anyone in open play
    3. We overcame Porto and that dreg footballing style

    Bayern was trailing by 10 in a weaker league, yet doesn’t seem to rate us at the top. At least Bayern don’t have to worry about City and Liverpool

  4. I’m shocked by how confident so many fans seem to be. I’m not confident we’ll knock out Bayern, who have far more experience of these games and have the second leg at home, which I still see as a major advantage – I am confident we will make it extremely tough for them, though (unlike previous encounters), and I do think we have a chance.

    1. Are you honestly shocked DAVI?
      Given the legendary club bias that almost all football fans everywhere regularly show us all, I would be shocked were that obvious bias NOT present here.


      Without the vital self awareness to be honest to ourselves, individually, about how we almost all are, actual TRUTH is almost impossible to reach!
