Arsenal Humiliated By Bayern Munich Again

Arsenal have been swept aside for the second game in a row in the Champions League.

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners were smashed 5-1 by Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 second leg at the Emirates Stadium tonight – there biggest loss at the ground – to fall to a 10-2 aggregate defeat to the German giants.

It started brightly for Arsenal in the return bout in North London, following their 5-1 loss in Munich last month, when Theo Walcott fired through the hands of Manuel Neuer from an angle on 20 minutes.

That goal gave them hope as they were the better of the two sides in the opening 45 minutes and could have been two to the good if Walcott had been awarded a penalty when Xabi Alonso caught him in the area.

But their protests were waved away and it was all downhill from there.

Key defender Laurent Koscielny was confusingly sent off on 54 minutes after bringing down Robert Lewandowski in the area, before the Polish striker converted from 12 yards with consummate ease to level the second leg.

Referee Anastasios Sidiropoulos essentially ruined the game with the odd decision to send Koscielny off as Carlo Ancelotti’s Bayern took full advantage by going on the assault and adding four goals in 17 minutes to embarrass Arsenal.

Arjen Robben tucked home neatly with his trusty left foot in the 68th minute before Douglas Costa took the ball from halfway, cut back onto his left, and fired beyond a despairing David Ospina 10 minutes later.

It was then schoolyard defending from the home side as Arturo Vidal basically walked the ball in on 80 and 85 minutes for the easiest brace of his career.

The devastating loss comes on a night where fans protested against Wenger who is at an all-time low in his 20-year career with the Gunners. They next meet non-league Lincoln City in the FA Cup at home on Saturday.

For Ancelotti and Bayern, they march on to the quarter-finals with another blistering second-half performance showcasing their brutal attacking prowess which has scored 25 goals in their past six outings.
