Mertesacker Podolski Giroud

Arsenal's selection of Lukas Podolski paid off with a stunning equaliser.

Lukas Podolski scored a spectacular goal for Arsenal to bring them back into the game against Bayern.

Having conceded a goal to Bastian Schweinsteiger minutes earlier, the Gunners looked down and out at 3-0 down on aggregate before Podolski's equaliser.

With Bayern appealing for a push, the German international played to the whistle against his former club and lashed an unstoppable goal past Manuel Neuer.

Podolski scored in the first leg against Arsenal last year, but was not selected for the tie at The Emirates three weeks ago.
