Arsene Wenger's team need a miracle in Munich to qualify for the quarter-finals after being completely outclassed by the German giants in their home leg on Tuesday evening
Bayern Munich piled more misery on Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal as they assumed control of their Champions League last-16 tie with a 3-1 win at the Emirates.
Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller handed the runaway Bundesliga leaders a two-goal advantage inside the opening 21 minutes as last season’s runners-up capitalised on some diabolical defending from the hosts.
The lack of marking proved infectious for Bayern as former player Lukas Podolski was gifted a free header into an empty net from a corner in the 55th minute, but as the match opened up still further, Mario Mandzukic added another to his side’s tally with a rather fortuitous close-range finish to give the Bavarian giants control of the tie.
