Ouch! Bayern mercilessly troll Arsenal after 5-1 hammering

Arjen Robben opened the scoring after just 11 minutes at the Allianz Arena when the Dutchman beat Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina with a fine left-foot strike into the top corner. Bayern knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League in the last 16 in both 2012-13 and 2013-14.

Ancelotti reminded Wenger what success was all about when he won a Premier League and FA Cup double in his first season at Chelsea, back in 201, but his sacking a year later provided evidence of the different bars for success at London's most power two clubs.

Arsenal have been less impressive but did rebound from successive Premier League defeats with a 2-0 win over Hull City on Saturday. The return leg will take place in London on March 7.

"It's down to us and it's in our hands".

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has predicted a tough challenge for his side against Arsenal when they meet in the Champions League on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old has not scored for the Gunners since December 10 and has been accused of being on the periphery of games in recent weeks.

The "Elephant in the room" at Arsenal is whether Wenger will be at the club next season, or whether it is time for him at the age of 67 to call it quits. Their third goal was a killer - we had no response. "It's always a problem because you think he can deliver something special but it's true that technically he missed things that he is not used to". They fell apart when the France global was forced off, with Shkodran Mustafi and Gabriel really struggling to deal with the Bayern movement.




As for Bayern, well, they're hardly setting the world alight in the Bundesliga but Carlo Ancelotti's side do lead the way.

Bayern stands in his and Arsenal's way, however.

"We are playing against a Bayern side, who's aim every year is to win the Champions League".

Lewandowski is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: "Everyone's waiting for this game". "They played very well in the second half and we dropped our level".

"We are in the last 16 and finished top of the group, if you analyse his performances in every single game we are where we are because of his great performances".

Manuel Neuer had suggested earlier that Arsenal were nearly too courageous on the ball - "a team who wants to play" - and that Bayern could "take advantage of these spaces".
