Bayern run riot over Arsenal

Mar 9, 2017-

Bayern Munich ran riot with a second successive 5-1 rout of Arsenal to reach the Champions League quarter-finals 10-2 on aggregate at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday.

Trailing 5-1 from the first leg and striving to become the first team in the events’ history to overturn such a deficit, Arsenal led at halftime through Theo Walcott’s goal. But once Robert Lewandowski equalised from the penalty spot and Arsenal skipper Laurent Koscielny was sent off, the Bundesliga leaders ran amok.

Robben capitalised on a defensive mistake in the 68th minute before Douglas Costa curled in a third. Bayern were not finished though and Arturo Vidal struck twice as Arsenal slumped to a seventh successive elimination at the last-16 stage in humiliating fashion.
