Two-goal win not enough for Arsenal at Bayern

FC Bayern München progressed to the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals for the fourth time in five seasons in spite of a 2-0 home defeat by Arsenal FC.

Olivier Giroud's early opener suggested the Bavarians could be in for an uncomfortable evening, but Jupp Heynckes' side rarely looked in danger of relinquishing their 3-1 first-leg advantage until Laurent Koscielny's late header made for a nervy finish. The Gunners were unable to muster another, though, meaning Bayern go into Friday's draw by virtue of their three away goals in London and Arsenal exit at this stage for the third successive campaign.

Reaction

We managed to get off with a slap on our wrists. We still haven't won anything. This was a timely reminder for us that we have to continue working hard in order to achieve our goals.

It is difficult for anyone to go out of the Champions League but we played one of the best teams in Europe. We have played well tonight but the tie is over 180 minutes and that is what counts.
