Bayern Munich winger Ribery: I knew Neuer would save Ozil Arsenal penalty

Injured Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery knew Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil would miss his spotkick last night.

Ozil fluffed his early penalty in Arsenal's 2-0 Champions League defeat.

Ozil used to go to school with Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and Ribery - sidelined with a buttock injury - wasn't surprised he fluffed his lines.

He said: "Arsenal played well and the first 10 minutes were not easy for us.

"I said ahead of the penalty that Neuer would save it.

"I trusted Neuer and he did it. He is the best goalkeeper around."
