Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal: Twitter Reacts On The Goal Fest

UEFA Champions League’s round of 16 has kicked off in an unexpected fashion. First PSG defeated Barcelona F.C in the biggest upset of the tournament by 4-1, then Real Madrid left Napoli haywired in a 3-0 comeback game and now the Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal. It’s either the defence of the losing teams that needs proper evaluation or the managers of the winning squad have done some substantial changes in the diet.

Arjen Robben gave Bayern the lead in the 11th minute when he took his trademark curling effort with his left foot which D. Ospina had no answer of. For the next couple of minutes, Munich played with dominance but Alexis Sanchez brought back Arsenal hopes as he struck the opener, 30 minutes into the game. Throughout the remaining first half, on one hand, the visitors were trying really hard to regroup their defence while on the other hand, Bayern Munich consistently opted for attacks but failed to send the ball past the finishing line.

However, the second witnessed a complete turn of events as the visitors registered a record on their name, that shouldn’t literally exist. Bayern ended up scoring four times after the break through a goal each from Lewandowski (53), Muller (88) and a brace from Thiago as he scored twice in just 8 minutes (56 & 63). Alexis Sanchez, who gave his team the opener in the first half, was very well marked by the opposition’s defence as Bayern Munich never let the striker complete either an assist or a shot at glory.

Coming back to the record, Arsenal is now the only English team to concede 200 goals in the Champions League. This was even the same scoreline as Arsenal’s previous visit to the Allianz Arena in last season’s group stage, which must have brought back some unpleasant memories.

As usual, Twitter had all the reasons to troll Arsenal and if the team doesn’t go for a makeover after being humiliated this much, then only God can save Arsène Wenger’s men from self-destruction.
