Febr. Der FC Bayern München hat sich bereits dreimal im Achtelfinale der Champions League gegen den FC Arsenal durchgesetzt. Am Mittwoch. Febr. Der FC Bayern hat in der Champions League seine ganze Klasse demonstriert. Nach einem Torspektakel gegen den FC Arsenal rückt für. 7. März Am CL-Viertelfinaleinzug des FC Bayern gibt es schon nach dem im Hinspiel keine Zweifel. Aber auch im Rückspiel beim FC Arsenal sind.
Wenger claimed a penalty for a tackle from Xabi Alonso on Walcott on 32 minutes but the Spanish midfielder got enough on the ball, with his studs.
B ayern were rocking a bit but held on until half-time and it was after Giroud had missed his second decent chance that the penalty came.
After that it seemed Bayern could score at any moment. Arjen Robben seized on an error from Sanchez to score a second after a poor goal kick from David Ospina had put his team in trouble.
Lewandowski hit the post before the next three went in. T he first was brilliantly done by the substitute Costa who took his time before cutting in from the right and bending one in the far corner with his left.
He gets all the stick when it goes bad. He needs someone to say we need a Sol Campbell, we need Martin Keown. W enger is protecting his team here while also slating the referee:.
We never knew how Bayern would react had we scored a second goal and of course it looks very bad. I think the second part of the game has been spoiled by the referee.
A heroic comeback against Bournemouth? The way that Arsenal deflate and capitulate when it starts to go against them is very revealing.
The fact that Bayern can put 10 past them - traditionally, Arsenal were built on a really strong defence. All this talk about Arsenal needing to invest in a player who scores goals, really they need to strengthen at the back.
Correct interpretation RobbieSavage8 https: Bayern were happy with but were gifted two other goals but at that point the game was over.
A yellow would have been perfect and that changed the game. I fear what Arsenal Fan TV are about to capture on digital cameras.
L ook away now Gunners fans. There is always the chance he is laughing about something entirely unrelated S trong words from former Gunner Ian Wright here:.
M artin Keown is still trying to blame the referees for this. It has nothing to do with them and everything to do with Arsenal, second best in every department.
A rsenal make a brief venture forward but Bayern defend well. Ozil has played some nice little passes since coming on.
A n "intruder" runs onto the pitch, interrupting play for a bit. The Man Utd was pretty bad to be fair but they look like they want to go home. A fine tweet from professional Arsenal fan and Telegraph writer, Charlie Eccleshare:.
Finally arsenal have ended the cycle of heroic last 16 defeats. M y concern now is that BT Sport are going to spend the next 30 minutes talking about the penalty decisions rather than any of the football and how Bayern were able to play like this in both legs.
Those substitutions really have made a difference to this game. Arsenal fans are just streaming out of the stadium now.
Xhaka is booked for that foul earlier on. A nd now Lewandowski is played in behind the defence and only has Ospina to beat. His touch is too heavy just before reaching the keeper and Ospina can save relatively easily.
And here comes the cavalry! Robben takes advantage of scrappy play and slots past Ospina, not Cech, to make it S anchez has just danced around four Bayern Munich forwards in his own defensive third and started an attack with a switched pass.
What a player this guy is. Robben thinks quickly and runs onto it as the Arsenal defence is left stranded. Lewandowski forces a save from Ospina with a powerful strike at goal, but had he placed it better that would have gone in.
Rafinha comes steaming in to try and win the ball back and goes down, the referee awards a free-kick. T he atmosphere has been somewhat dampened after that red card.
Not that it was ever really alive Bayern are up after all. Arsenal need four goals to take the game to extra time. W ait a minute Koscielny has been sent off.
What on earth has just happened?! He was shown a yellow The crowd is eerily quiet as Koscielny leads the pitch. B ayern are taking their time with possession fire into action all of a sudden, creating a four on two in the final third.
Ribery keeps running rather than passing and Arsenal win the ball back, then Oxlade-Chamberlain passes straight into a Bayern midfielder.
Koscielny gets the wrong side of Lewandowski and knocks him to the ground! C lose for Giroud! He leaps at the back post and heads at goal but puts the ball high over the bar.
The linesman saves the day. A rsenal are pushing high up the pitch now. In the first half they sat deep and invited Bayern on to them to hit on the counter.
Wenger is going for the four goals. Because nobody is in control of the ball at that time, technically both could get to it but the defender knocks Walcott to the floor, meaning he cannot.
That might not be how the referees handbook sees it. Arsenal were going to score first and then get smashed. Even the best goalkeepers let in the easy ones.
How was there only 1 min added time when all that bog roll had to be cleared off the pitch? Will never understand these arbitrary additions.
E xcellent performance from Arsenal but not quite good enough. Three more goals needed, Bayern are dangerous too.
Ramsey bins Martinez with a clever turn and the Spaniard pulls him down, earning a yellow card for his troubles. Xhaka can hit free-kicks from here, very well.
End to end stuff here! Oxlade-Chamberlain intercepts by his own box again and rushes forward, leading the counter-attack. Bellerin makes up 80 yards in rapid time and just needs the right ball played ahead of him to be clean through the defence but the pass is heavy and takes him wide.
The chance pretty much ends there. A nd then Bayern counter with an ocean of space on the right wing again. Alaba is booked too.
This referee is weird. Sanchez is doing absolutely no defending this evening and it means that Monreal is getting humped by Robben down that right wing.
Sanchez needs to step it up and defend in his own half. R amsey has been really sloppy in possession tonight. Bayern come forward as they win the ball from Ramsey and Vidal tries a left footed long range effort which soars over the bar.
Giroud has just wasted a chance to shoot as Monreal sets him up with a clever header on a counter-attack. Giroud swipes at his shot.
Put your foot through it, son! Robben pulls the strings, Lewandowski runs past the defence and only has Ospina to beat but pulls his shot wide. Put your foot through it son!
But this time he slams his shot into the side-netting when he might have been better pulling it across goal. To repeat that feat, he will have to find a way to overcome defending champions Real in the semi-finals, with the German club at home in the first leg on Wednesday, 25 April and then travelling to Madrid on Tuesday, 1 May.
Real, who have won the competition in three of the past four seasons, reached the last four by coming through a dramatic second leg against Juventus.
Real beat Bayern in a dramatic and controversial quarter-final last season - winning on aggregate after scoring three goals in extra time - on their way to lifting the title.
Leading from the first tie, the Gunners conceded twice in Moscow and needed late goals from Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey to make progress more comfortable.
Atletico, Europa League winners in and , are considered favourites to win the competition and are second in the Spanish La Liga, 11 points behind leaders Barcelona and with the best defensive record in the league.
They came through their semi-final against Sporting Lisbon , losing the second leg in Portugal. Get latest scores and headlines sent straight to your phone, sign-up to our newsletter and learn where to find us on online.
