Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is relishing the prospect of another glamour tie in the Champions League.
Arsenal have been drawn to face Bayern Munich in the last 16 of the competition - a rematch of last season's tie which saw the Gunners win at the Allianz Arena but go out on away goals.
Speaking ahead of Monday's draw, Oxlade-Chamberlain was ready for any of the big names.
"When the big teams come into town it does create a massive buzz"
"You see the likes of the Barcelonas and Real Madrids and you always want to play against them and obviously Bayern Munich too," he told Arsenal Player.
"We managed to get a good result away at Bayern last season so that brings back good memories. If you're going to do well in the competition you've got to beat the best teams.
"Obviously the big teams create the bigger atmosphere around the stadiums," he added.
"I remember before I came to Arsenal I was at the Barcelona game at the Emirates and I just remember the atmosphere there was unbelievable, so when the big teams do come into town it does create a massive buzz."
