Wounded Wenger admits Bayern Munich were better than Arsenal

Wounded Wenger admits Bayern Munich were better than Arsenal

The opening goal did little to alter the momentum of the game as Bayern continued to dominate the ball but with the Gunners appearing to have weathered the early storm, they equalised from nowhere just after the half-hour mark when Laurent Koscielny was fouled in the area by Lewandowski. Thomas Muller came off the bench to complete a five-star display. We have to make sure we play well on the day because we are going to have to if we are going to beat Bayern Munich.

It was a dominance they capped off in the 11th minute, when Robben produced a vintage piece of play.

The Dutchman was allowed to cut inside from the right and an in trademark style, he sent a stunning 20-yard strike into the top left hand corner to give his side the ideal start.

Playing predominantly from the left side of the pitch, Iwobi has impressed with his ability to play inside the half space between the left and centre of the pitch and his capacity to contribute to the attacking phase for Arsenal, as well as his ability to dribble in tight spaces to find the right pass when under pressure. Robert Lewandowski, who has 255 career goals (37 in the Champions League), is another Bayern star who has yet to get his hands on the coveted trophy.

Sanchez booted his spot-kick straight at Neuer and then miskicked as he tried to score on the rebound.

The visitors suffered what would prove a critical blow after the restart, as an injured Koscielny had to be replaced by Gabriel Paulista after a tangle with Lewandowski.

So can Arsenal realistically do something in the Champions League this season with this Bayern Munich side being the weakest the Gunners will face off against?

Bayern and Arsenal traded blows as the first half wound down. I felt that the third goal was a killer for our players. The midfielder was equally composed in front of goal and made no mistake with his finish. They fell apart when the France global was forced off, with Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel really struggling to deal with the Bayern movement.

Eight minutes into the second half, and Bayern had restored their lead with Lewandowski this time finding the back of the net with a header after rising highest in the box to guide Philipp Lahm's cross into the far corner.

Alexis Sanchez equalised for the visitors, scoring on the rebound after Manuel Neuer saved his 30th-minute penalty, but that seems of little outcome now before the second leg in London on March 7. They've been outclassed and outplayed and they did at a canter, ' the Sportsmail columnist said on BT Sport. Lewandowsi, Martinez, Robben, and Douglas Costa all had clear chances to add a fifth goal to Bayern's haul over the next 20 minutes but David Ospina showed a poise in denying them that the rest of the Arsenal defense did not.

"Arsenal have very good players, but we need to concentrate on ourselves and if we play our best football, Arsenal probably won't have many chances".

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