Bayern Munich Humiliate Arsenal 5 – 1
As much as football pundits didn’t expect Arsenal to really put up a fight against Bayern Munich at the Alllianz Arena, it wasn’t expected to be a decimation as it turned out to be on a night when Arsenal were made to look like kids in a park.
It should be noted that Bayern Munich have won their last 16 home Champions League games, the longest winning run in the history of the competition making the Allianz Arena a fortress of some sorts which Arsenal looked like they might breach after the scores stood at 1-1 at the end of the first half.
The last clash with Bayern ended with the same score line which was the last time Arsenal had conceded that much in a match until now.
The gunner who have been eliminated at the first knockout round of the competition in each of the last six seasons are now on their way to make that seven except they can somehow conjure an unexpected miracle.
Bayern opened the scoring with Robben scoring an absolute screamer before Sanchez equalised for Arsenal after his penalty was saved by Neuer.
The second half saw Bayern score four goals as Robert Lewandowski headed home before Thiago Alcantara scored twice and then substitute Thomas Muller scored a late goal.
