UEFA: Bayern Mauls Arsenal 5-1, Madrid Sees Off Napoli 3-1

Ten-man Arsenal was knocked out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage for the seventh successive season following a second-half capitulation against Bayern Munich.

A debated decision in the 53rd minute shattered any hopes of the Gunners becoming the first side in Champions League history to overturn a four-goal deficit, having also lost the first leg in Germany 5-1.

Theo Walcot scored the consolatory goal for Arsenal, while Lewandoski, Douglas Costa, Arturo Vidal wo scored twice and Arjen Robben scored for Munich. Total aggregate goals scored is 10-2

The 10-2 aggregate defeat is the worst suffered by an English side in the Champions League.

It was Arsenal’s biggest home loss since November 1998 (5-0 against Chelsea in the League Cup).

Only one Champions League tie has seen a greater margin of victory for a team – Bayern Munich v Sporting Lisbon (12-1, 2009).

Only Barcelona (27 against Celtic) have scored more Champions League goals against a single opponent than Bayern have against Arsenal (26).

Real Madrid came from a goal down against Napoli in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie to progress to the quarterfinals. Goals from Ramos, Morata and Mertens secured 3 for Madrid while Mertens scored Napoli’s only goal bringing the aggregate goals to 6-2 in favor of Madrid.
