Arsenal humiliated again; Real Madrid through to final eight

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 14:30

Arsenal repeated their first leg disaster, not salvaging any pride but somehow humiliating themselves even worse than they did at the Allianz Arena back in February.

They lost 5-1 at home to Bayern Munich, making a 10-2 aggregate score.

While Arsenal started the evening playing for pride, even taking the lead in the first half, the second half was far too like the first leg in Munich.

Bayern ran in five second half goals with embarrassing ease and it looked like if they had wanted another five they could have had them.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid weathered an early storm before easing through to the quarterfinals of the Champions League with a 3-1 victory over Napoli, giving them a 6-2 win on aggregate over two legs.

Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, Napoli threw everything they had at the reigning champions in an electrifying early spell, and took a deserved lead through Dries Mertens midway through the first half.

But after Cristiano Ronaldo struck a post before the break, Sergio Ramos scored twice in the space of six second-half minutes to turn the tie on its head, with Alvaro Morata adding a final flourish at the end.
