MUNICH (AP) - Defending champion Bayern Munich drew 1-1 with Arsenal to reach the Champions League quarterfinals with a 3-1 aggregate win from their round-of-16 tie on Tuesday.

Bayern midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger finished coolly from Franck Ribery's cross to put the home side in a commanding position in the 55th minute.

Lukas Podolski responded within two minutes against his former side by dispossessing Philipp Lahm in the penalty area and smashing the ball past Manuel Neuer to the roof of the net from an acute angle.

The goals breathed life into a game that Bayern had firmly in grip.

Thomas Mueller had the chance to make it 2-1 after Arjen Robben went down under Laurent Koscielny's challenge, but Lukasz Fabianski saved his penalty on the line in injury time.
