Arsenal went in level at halftime but after defender Laurent Koscielny went off injured it conceded three goals in ten minutes -- two scored by Thiago Alcantara -- and eventually slumped to a heavy defeat which all but ends its chances of progressing. Marc Mueller/Bongarts/Getty Images
The 5-1 reverse mirrored Arsenal's last visit to Bayern's Allianz Arena in last season's group stages. Although Arsenal did recover from that reverse to reach the final 16 last year, they were eliminated after being convincingly beaten 5-1 on aggregate by Spanish champions Barcelona.
