Champions League: Arsenal 1-3 Bayern Munich – More Woe At The Emirates As Gunners Outclassed By German Giants (Photos & Highlights)

By Alan Duffy

Arsenal 1-3 Bayern Munich – Champions League – 19th February 2013

If Arsenal’s chances of finally picking up some silverware courtesy of a Champions League success were minute to start with, then after this 3-1 defeat at the Emirates, they were reduced to a molecular level.

The Gunners were outclassed for most of the game by a Bayern side playing with the confidence of a side romping away with the Bundesliga. Sloppy defending was once again the order of the day for the Gunners, with the ball finding its way far too easily for Toni Kroos to fire home.

Thomas Mueller then made it 2-0 on 21 minutes, after Daniel Van Buyten’s header was only parried into the path of the German international, who hit high into the gaping goal.

After the break, the Gunners did rally somewhat, culminating in Lukas Podolski’s close-range header. But the Germans always looked a class above and eventually rounded off proceeding with a third goal after Mario Mandzukic netted after some more less than convincing defending from the Gunners.

With the tie all but dead and buried, Arsene Wenger will now be hoping his beleaguered side can put their league campaign back on track against Aston Villa at the weekend.

    Same arsenal as ever, ridiculous defending, terrible attitude. I’d say we’re dead and buried now

    I knew there was a conspiracy with UEFA against English teams. That damned Platini! Oh wait, that corner kick that shouldn’t have been given, which led to the goal was Arsenal’s? Oh. Hm. Carry on then. I’m sure we’ll find something the next time an English team plays because everyone’s always against English teams like that.

    Arsenal to win 3-0 in Munich!

    Also, me to have a threesome with Cheryl Cole & Katy Perry!

    Well, there’s at least a mathematical probability of that…

  5. [...] Last night’s result came as a surprise to quite literally nobody. Along with their rollicking momentum, one quick cursary glance at the line-ups showed that Bayern had stronger, more adept players in every single position, man-for-man and including the bench. [...]

    Ok, to me, it looked like a much deeper problem than that. Some dodgy defending yes, but Arsenal were generally outclassed in almost every area, if not every area. Theo Walcott looked lively, as did Jack Wilshere and Sagna, but the likes of Kroos, Lahm and Schweinsteiger left a bigger impression on the match. Maybe Arsenal just aren’t capable of competing with these guys. Having said that, I don’t think maybe teams would bode well against Bayern this season.
