Bayern Munich Topple Arsenal 10-2 To Qualify For Champions League Semi Final


It was a shameful exit for Arsenal FC as German Champions Bayern Munich Beat them 1-5 in the second leg of Uefa Champions League Quarter Final Stage at Emirate Stadium after trashing them 5-1 in the first leg at Alienz Arena in Germany last two weeks. Bringing the total to 10-2 in aggregate.

Ten-man Arsenal were knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for the seventh successive season following a second-half capitulation against Bayern Munich. A debated decision in the 53rd minute shattered any hopes of the Gunners becoming the first side in Champions League history to overturn a four-goal deficit.

They led through Theo Walcott's stunning 20th-minute goal, before Bayern were awarded a penalty that also resulted in the sending off of defender Laurent Koscielny. The France centre-back was initially shown a yellow card by referee Anastasios Sidiropoulos for his foul on Robert Lewandowski inside the area - but it was upgraded to a red once he realised Koscielny made no attempt to win the ball.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger looked perplexed by the sudden change of heart by the official. Lewandowski placed his spot-kick beyond the reach of David Ospina to give Bayern a 6-2 aggregate lead and effectively kill off the tie.

The home side then folded as Bayern scored three goals in 12 minutes. Arjen Robben robbed Alexis Sanchez of the ball before Douglas Costa made it 3-1 with a stunning solo goal. Fellow midfielder Arturo Vidal grabbed a late double, first with an impudent chip before slotting in from Costa's square pass to compete Arsenal misery.

Before the final whistle, Arsenal fans in the stadium was seen carrying placards, demanding for Arsene Winger to leave Arsenal. Some of the things written on the placards are: "Time To Go Winger", "Thank You Winger", "You Can Leave", "Time To Hit The Door Arsene" etc

Could this be Arsene Winger's last outing in Champions with Arsenal? If it, what an embarrassing history to remember.
