Carlo Ancelotti, Bayern coach: "We are looking forward to two interesting games. I have faith in my team and hope we can reach the quarter-finals. Arsenal have a very good team at the moment and a manager I hold in high esteem."
David Miles, Arsenal club secretary: "We are through to the knockout stage for the 17th consecutive season, which is testament to Arsène Wenger and the teams throughout that time. But the fans will think we have got the rough end of the draw again – at some stage the tide has got to turn and we will beat them."
Manuel Neuer, Bayern keeper: "We know Arsenal well from previous years and have some good experiences playing them. Currently I rate this Arsenal side even stronger than in previous years."
Thomas Müller, Bayern forward: "Arsenal is a difficult task, without question. Two European heavyweights come up against each other, but in the end hopefully Bayern will come out on top."
