Pressure on Wenger to break Bayern curse in Champions League

Pressure on Wenger to break Bayern curse in Champions League

While it was a miserable night for Arsenal, some Sky Bet punters were celebrating along with Real and Bayern after a 400/1 request-a-bet came in - Robert Lewandowski to score a header and Arsenal to miss a penalty.

Eventually, it was an error from Lewandowski in an unfamiliar position on the pitch that gave the Gunners a vital away goal.

The Poland striker set up Thiago with a ideal flick for Bayern's third goal three minutes later and the Spaniard grabbed his second with a low drive.

Arsenal returned to winning ways with victory over the Tigers and now Wenger is looking forward to the prospect of coming up against Carlo Ancelotti's Bayern.

Neuer saved Sanchez's penalty, but the Chile global drilled home the rebound from a tight angle at the second attempt.

The visitors then had a golden opportunity to pull ahead just before half time when Ozil was through on Neuer, but sent his shot straight at the custodian. The key could well come from the team that takes the initiative in the first instance and looks to attack from the very first kick.

Bayern and Arsenal traded blows as the first half wound down. The Chile global then played in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who clipped it to Granit Xhaka, only to see his shot on goal stopped by Manuel Neuer. The midfielder was equally composed in front of goal and made no mistake with his finish. "Bayern absolutely battered them in the end and it is embarrassing, that's official".

But there was nothing the Colombian could do about Muller's goal, as he finished calmly after being introduced as a late replacement. They played very well in the second half and we were a bit unlucky as well.

The movie spends much of its time presenting Christian as flawed but decent boyfriend material - not the creepy stalker he is. While at dinner they talk about where their relationship needs to be before Anastasia would even consider reconnecting.

Wenger acknowledges his side face a "massive" challenge.

For Wenger, there was little to do other than admit Bayern Munich are the better team and he said on BT Sport: "It is hard to explain".

"We can look to make excuses for what happened, but ultimately they were just outplayed". However, I doubt Wenger will be keen to throw him into such a critical game so soon.

"It's a shock to lose like that, we made everything wrong, the fifth goal shows that".

The Gunners are confident for the Allianz Arena leg with the return in London on March 7.

"But I feel that this is a good opportunity".

"Normally, we are always where we need to be for games like that, but it is a completely different match", said Robben.
