DREAM TEAM POINTS: Bayern Munich 5 Arsenal 1

Groundhog Day.

Arsenal’s ability to produce almost the same season year on year is quite something.

And it looks like this campaign is going the same way after they suffered a horrible 4-1 defeat in their Champions League last 16 first leg at Bayern Munich.

Arjen Robben, Robert Lewandowski, Thomas Muller and a double from the imperious Thiago look to have already settled the tie.

Alexis Sanchez did briefly level proceedings after tucking into the corner when his penalty was saved, but once Bayern went ahead for the second time the floodgates opened.

Mesut Ozil was under the spotlight after a torrid run of form and didn’t perform much better at the Allianz Arena.

The German playmaker couldn’t influence the game in attack and was seen simply watching rather than pressing Arjen Robben before the Dutchman opened the scoring:
