Real Madrid came from a goal down again to beat Napoli 1-3 in their second leg Round of 16 UEFA Champions League clash, While Arsenal saw another 5-1 decimation at the Emirate Stadium
Having lost 3-1 at the Bernabeu, Napoli expected to beat Los Blancos no less than 2-0 and they were appearing as though they would do that when Dries Mertens gave them a 24th-minute lead.
Sergio Ramos who is renowned for urgent goals flew up in the 52nd to reestablish parity for Madrid before Dries Mertens from hero transformed to zero as he packaged the ball into the net.
Zinedine Zidane’s men were at that point looking home and go before Alvaro Morata popped away with a late goal that guaranteed Real Madrid win on a 6-2 aggregate, to cruise in style into the quarter-finals phase of the competition.
BAYERN SMASH ARSENAL
Arsenal was smashed out of the Champions League in stupendous humiliating style today, losing to Bayern Munich 5-1 again and subsequently 10-2 on aggregate.
It was continually going to be a for all intents and purposes incomprehensible task for Arsenal to overturn a 5-1 deficit from the first leg.
Theo Walcott puts Arsenal ahead in the 12min when he blasted forward into the Bayern goal region, turned upward before crushing a finish up the net.
Much the same as the first encounter at Allianz Arena, Arsenal capitulated in the second half following a promising opening 45 minutes, though they were not helped by Laurent Koscielny being sent off for a foul in the 18-yard box.
