Cl Arsenal Bayern VideoArsenal vs Bayern Munich - Champions League Breakdown! (19/02/13)
Robert Lewandowski advances towards the Arsenal penalty area from the left flank but is crowded off the ball. Ramsey limps down the tunnel, while Chamberlain takes up position on the right side of midfield.
Arsenal win a free-kick in the centre-circle as Santi Cazorla is fouled and from the ensuing attack, their first of the half, Coquelin shoots from a few yards outside the Bayern penalty area.
His effort drifts wide of the top right-hand corner, but not too wide. Aaron Ramsey goes down injured and signals to the Arsenal bench that he needs to be substituted.
Aaron Ramsey off, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on. After another period of sustained Bayern pressure, Lewandowski picks up a pass from Costa and shoots for goal.
His rising effort is put out for a corner by Petr Cech. Has Helen got her hair done differently? Arsenal are barely getting a touch of the ball here, as Bayern toy with them at the beginning of this second half.
Douglas Costa picks up the ball on the edge of the Arsenal penalty area, beats Frnacois Coquelin with a little shimmy and then shoots high over the bar.
Xabi Alonso, who has form in this particular field of expertise, attempts to score from inside his own half. His audacious effort earns a look of contempt from Petr Cech.
Bayern immediately go on the offensive, passing the ball around between the halfway line and the edge of the penalty area as they keep possession for over two minutes, before Douglas Costa wins a corner while trying to cross into their penalty area.
Nothing comes of it. Still, two minutes, eh? Bayern Munich are actually behind in the Shots On Target department. Bayern have bossed the possession and pass stats, but Arsenal have looked reasonably dangerous on the break.
Standing outside his own penalty area with the ball at his feet, Manuel Neuer is given all the time in the world to survey his options, wait for Xabi Alonso to retreat unmarked from midfield and pick up the ball from his goalkeeper and play a long ball towards the Arsenal penalty area.
Make of that what you will. Another corner for Bayern, which costa takes. As we approach half-time, Bayern Munich continue to control a game in which the best chance so far has fallen to Arsenal.
Bayern look like the home side, while Arsenal look dangerous on the break. Douglas Costa pounces on a wayward Sanchez pass across the face of his own penalty area and advances on goal.
He shoots over the bar, but wins a corner for his team. On the edge of his own six yard box, Philipp Lahm leaps highest to get on the end of a Theo Walcott cross and head the ball towards his own keeper.
He put a fair bit of power on that header, but was obviously confident his keeper would deal with it comfortably. Good work from Coquelin, who wins the ball deep in Bayern Munich and plays it over the top for Walcott.
The goalkeeper himself had his outtstretched body behind the line, but somehow clawed the ball away with his left hand.
Much better from Arsenal , who have finally got into the game and are giving Bayern plenty to think about. After more good play from Walcott, they win another corner off Jerome Boateng which Santi Cazorla curls into the Bayern penalty area.
How did Arsenal fail to score there? A rare error from Manuel Neuer in sweeper mode results in a corner for Arsenal.
He sends it screaming wide. If you are a minor, you confirm with your registration that you have the consent of your parent or legal guardian to receive the newsletter.
