Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is desperate to get his name on the scoresheet when Arsenal visit in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The Gunners grabbed a 2-0 victory over Bayern at the Emirates Stadium two weeks ago to condemn the German giants to a first defeat since August.

Lewandowski is planning to take revenge on the Premier League club and he is desperate to add to his 23 goals for the Allianz Arena outfit this season on Wednesday night.

The Polish striker has not scored in the last two games but he has gone three successive games without a goal this term and he wants to keep that record intact.

To do so, he will have to score past Gunners stopper Petr Cech for the first time in his career, having been denied by two outstanding saves from the Czech international in the 2-0 defeat last month.

Lewandowski’s Poland have also faced Cech’s national side in recent months and he has said his struggles against the former Chelsea custodian are one of “those quirks you get in football” but he is convinced he can end that run on Wednesday.

“I’ve gone two games without a goal now, obviously I want to score again. I will give everything for that,” the 27-year-old told a news conference.

“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 7.50 to beat Arsenal 2-0 and Lewandowski is 4.00 to score the first goal of the game.
