Lewandowski eyeing scoring return

Having scored just one goal in five matches, Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski has warned Arsenal that he intends to end his goalless run in their Champions League clash on Wednesday. 

Lewandowski has notched up a highly impressive 17 goals in 16 games in all competitions this season, but has not scored in his last two matches and has found the back of the net just once since grabbing a brace against BVB Dortmund in early October.

The Polish international's quiet patch has coincided with a run of comparatively poor results for Bayern, with a 2-0 loss to Arsenal on October 20 having spelt the end of their 12-game winning streak, while the weekend's draw with Frankfurt was their first dropped points of the Bundesliga season.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday's clash with the Gunners, Lewandowski said that he's determined to get back among the goal scorers in what is an important match for Pep Guardiola's side.

"I've gone two games without a goal now, obviously I want to score again. I will give everything for that," Lewandowski told reporters. "We desperately need points. We have to show who is the better team.

"We have to stay concentrated and focused, then we have a very good chance to beat Arsenal. We have to get the points. We’re playing at home and will give our all."

Bayern are currently level on points with Olympiacos at the top of Group F, with their defeat to Arsenal coming after victories over their Greek rivals and Dinamo Zagreb.
