PICTURE: Arsenal stars buddy up with Bayern Munich defender

Arsenal star Lukas Podolski published a picture of himself and Mesut Ozil with Bayern Munich star Jerome Boateng.

Arsenal stars Lukas Podolski and Mesut Ozil have been hanging out with Bayern Munich star Jerome Boateng while Germany prepare for their international clash against Chile this evening.

It was only two weeks ago that the trio lined up against each other as the Gunners went down 2-0 at home against Bayern in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 tie between the clubs.

Podolski and Ozil will both be key figures in the Arsenal side that returns to Bayern next week looking for at least a repeat of the 2-0 win they secured at the Allianz Arena last season which would force the tie into extra time.

International players are all good friends when they meet up for duty with their countries, but the pair need Boateng to have a terrible game next week for the Gunners to put the European champions out of the competition.
