Five-Star Bayern Crush Arsenal In UCL First Leg

Arsenal to win 5/1

Whether it was fate, the gods of football or some underhand form of as-yet- undiscovered magnetism at work, as soon as these two balls came out of the knockout draw together on December 12, it was always going to be a defining moment in the future of Arsenal. Goals: Robben 11, Lewandowski 53, Thiago 56, 63, Muller 88.

Chances towards the end of the first period continued to be created with Lewandowski and Mats Hummels both missing the target with headers, while Ozil found himself clear in on goal with just seconds of the half remaining, yet he was unable to find a way past Neuer.

Sanchez didn't make easy work of the penalty, as the Chilean saw his initial effort save by Neuer, before skewing the rebound and then, with five defenders closing in, taking the ball down with his chest and lashing a low shot into the bottom corner.

Bayern and Arsenal traded blows as the first half wound down. Lewandowski was whistled for a unsafe play while kicking a routine clearance as knee height as Laurent Koscielny arrived late to block the kick.

Robert Lewandowski latched onto a header in the 53rd minute and directed it home and then minutes later checked a run and tapped a cheeky backheel to Thiago who steamed through the Arsenal lines en route to Bayern's third goal of the night. The Chile worldwide then played in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who clipped it to Granit Xhaka, only to see his shot on goal stopped by Manuel Neuer.

As a result, Kim Jong Nam was raised mostly overseas, and Kim Jong Il reportedly believed he had become too westernized. In any case, Kim Jong Un has been known to be ruthless about potential rivals, even within his own family.

Things got worse for the shellshocked Gunners six minutes later. They fell apart when the France global was forced off, with Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel really struggling to deal with the Bayern movement. Arsenal needed Ospina at his best to keep the score down, as he dropped to his left to somehow keep out Douglas Costa's fierce drive. However, most telling was that goalscorer Sanchez continued chasing down Bayern players despite the scoreline, whereas in contrast, Ozil was anonymous.

The Frenchman looked dejected as he faced the BT Sport cameras acknowledging that Carlo Ancelotti's side were the better team.

"I don't know - it can happen", Wenger said, when asked if he knew why Ozil had been under-performing. "That would be nice", he added, with the return leg at the Emirates Stadium on March 7. "We made everything wrong, the fifth goal shows that".

Wenger also played down suggestions that Mesut Özil might not be selected for Arsenal's biggest game of the season to date - "Özil is highly focused to have a good performance tomorrow" - but revealed he would be sticking with David Ospina ahead of Petr Cech in this competition, praising the Chilean's "great performances" in goal.

"We know from the past that the first game is very important, so we need to take a good result back to London".
