  1. Arsenal face an immense challenge if they are to qualify from the last 16 of the Champions League after a 3-1 first leg defeat by Bayern at Emirates Stadium. Away goals from Kroos, Muller and Mandzukic added to the pressure on the already under-fire Wenger as his side were largely outplayed. A second-half header from former Bayern player Podolski had given Arsenal some hope as they threatened a comeback. But runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern are now very strong favourites to reach the quarter-finals ahead of the second leg in Germany on 13th March. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.

  2. 90 + 3


  3. 90 +2

    Robben wants a free-kick close to the corner flag but instead has to settle for a throw-in. Bayern then win a corner.

  4. 90 + 1

    Bayern have been very good this evening. They are incredibly organised and have been clinical on the counter-attack. They will be a match for anyone in the Champions League.

  5. 90

    ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  6. 90

    Cazorla wastes the free-kick when failing to beat the first man. Sagna then hits a follow-up wide of the target.

  7. 89

    Lahm is correctly booked for a sliding challenge on Vermaelen on the right-hand side of Bayern's box. A chance for Arsenal to cross from the free-kick.

  8. 88

    It is simply a case of running down the clock for Bayern. They are letting Arsenal have the ball but are keeping a very good shape to prevent any late pressure from their hosts.

  9. 87

    Neuer shows good hands to take a high cross which was directed towards Walcott.

  10. 86

    Arsenal have been unable to get behind Bayern's defenders with any frequency. It has been a great away performance by the Bundesliga leaders.

  11. 85

    Wilshere has been Arsenal's best player tonight but he has been fighting a losing battle in central midfield. Arteta and Ramsey did not make much impact.

  12. 84

    Robben cuts in from the right on his left foot but his low shot is into the shins of Koscielny.

  13. 83

    It is now all a bit flat around the Emirates. Arsenal fans know their team will have to cause a major upset to avoid going out of the Champions League.

  14. 82

    Gomez can almost make an immediate impact. Szczesny does well to save a deflected Gustavo effort and Gomez's follow up is then balsted over the crossbar. He had options for a pass.

  15. 81

    Bayern send on Gomez in place of Mandzukic to help run down the clock.

  16. 80

    Wilshere forces a save from Neuer after a good run but time is running out for Arsenal.

  17. 79

    That is a devastating blow for Arsenal ahead of the second leg in Germany on 13th March. But it was a great move from Bayern.

  18. Arsenal are back to facing a mountain to climb. Robben works an overlap to Lahm, who, in space, crosses low across the six-yard box. Mandzukic meets the ball under pressure from Sagna and more through luck than judgement deflects the ball to send it looping into the goal.

  19. 77

    GOAL MANDZUKIC (1-3)!!!

  20. 76

    Arsenal burst forward on the left flank but Lahm reads Rosicky's attempt at a clever pass to Cazorla and can intercept.
