Beating an English team 3-1 is a big result. We had a great start to the game and put in an excellent display. You could see that Arsenal are a good side and we had to roll up our sleeves and work hard to get the win.

Minute By Minute

  • End Time
    The final whistle is blown.
    Bayern take a two-goal cushion into the second leg in Germany, despite a second half barrage from their hosts. Goals from Thomas Müller, Toni Kroos and a late third from Mario Mandžukić mean Arsenal have their work cut out to win this tie.

  • Goal
    77
    Mandžukić (Bayern) scores!
    The two-goal lead is restored as Mario Mandžukić finds Arjen Robben, who plays in Philipp Lahm down the right. Lahm's low cross falls to the Bayern No.9 who had continued his run. With Wojciech Szczęsny unsure where the ball has gone it loops up off the Croatian and into the net.
