Bayern Munich is halfway into the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League courtesy of a scintillating second-half performance, as Arsenal’s hopes of progressing were all but extinguished as they suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat at the Allianz Arena.
Arjen Robben put the Bavarians ahead with a superb left-footed trademark curler, but Alexis Sanchez levelled the score line taking an advantage of a rebound from his weak penalty to give the fans a glimpse of hope.
In the second half, Bayern was just too strong for Gunners to hold off, as the visiting side have lost five of their last first legs matches in six defeats at this stage of the competition, Robert Lewandowski header and Thiago double before a late clinical finish from substitute Thomas Muller
Meanwhile, Arsenal have set an unwanted record in the Champions League becoming the first English side to have conceded 200 goals In Europe’s premier club competition
