  • Arsenal face an immense challenge if they are to qualify from the last 16 of the Champions League after a 3-1 first leg defeat by Bayern at Emirates Stadium. Away goals from Kroos, Muller and Mandzukic added to the pressure on the already under-fire Wenger as his side were largely outplayed. A second-half header from former Bayern player Podolski had given Arsenal some hope as they threatened a comeback. But runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern are now very strong favourites to reach the quarter-finals ahead of the second leg in Germany on 13th March. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 3
  • Robben wants a free-kick close to the corner flag but instead has to settle for a throw-in. Bayern then win a corner.

    90 +2
  • Bayern have been very good this evening. They are incredibly organised and have been clinical on the counter-attack. They will be a match for anyone in the Champions League.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • Cazorla wastes the free-kick when failing to beat the first man. Sagna then hits a follow-up wide of the target.

  • Lahm is correctly booked for a sliding challenge on Vermaelen on the right-hand side of Bayern's box. A chance for Arsenal to cross from the free-kick.

  • It is simply a case of running down the clock for Bayern. They are letting Arsenal have the ball but are keeping a very good shape to prevent any late pressure from their hosts.

  • Neuer shows good hands to take a high cross which was directed towards Walcott.

  • Arsenal have been unable to get behind Bayern's defenders with any frequency. It has been a great away performance by the Bundesliga leaders.

  • Wilshere has been Arsenal's best player tonight but he has been fighting a losing battle in central midfield. Arteta and Ramsey did not make much impact.

  • Robben cuts in from the right on his left foot but his low shot is into the shins of Koscielny.

  • It is now all a bit flat around the Emirates. Arsenal fans know their team will have to cause a major upset to avoid going out of the Champions League.

  • Gomez can almost make an immediate impact. Szczesny does well to save a deflected Gustavo effort and Gomez's follow up is then balsted over the crossbar. He had options for a pass.

  • Bayern send on Gomez in place of Mandzukic to help run down the clock.

  • Wilshere forces a save from Neuer after a good run but time is running out for Arsenal.

  • That is a devastating blow for Arsenal ahead of the second leg in Germany on 13th March. But it was a great move from Bayern.

  • Arsenal are back to facing a mountain to climb. Robben works an overlap to Lahm, who, in space, crosses low across the six-yard box. Mandzukic meets the ball under pressure from Sagna and more through luck than judgement deflects the ball to send it looping into the goal.

  • GOAL MANDZUKIC (1-3)!!!

  • Arsenal burst forward on the left flank but Lahm reads Rosicky's attempt at a clever pass to Cazorla and can intercept.
