Arsenal crash out of Champions League after Bayern defeat

2024/04/17 22:04

Joshua Kimmich's powerful header proved decisive as Bayern Munich secured a 1-0 victory at the Allianz Arena in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final, sealing a 3-2 aggregate win and knocking Arsenal out of the competition.

The initial 20 minutes was a cagey one and scoring opportunities were scarce, but gradually the game began to open up.

In the 24th minute, David Raya thwarted Jamal Musiala's threatening attempt, while Bayern's Manuel Neuer was tested by Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Martinelli in quick succession.

Neuer also denied a header from Kai Havertz towards the end of the first half, but the cautious period ended without goals, as neither team took excessive risks.

The hosts emerged stronger in the second half, hitting the post twice within the opening minute through a header from Leon Goretzka and a powerful strike from Raphael Guerreiro.

Thomas Tuchel's men managed to take the lead in the 63rd minute when Kimmich netted a header from a Guerreiro cross.

Raya was forced into action late on to deny Musiala, with the Bavarians dominating the game in search of a second goal to seal the qualification.

However, the match ended without further drama, with Kimmich's decisive header securing Bayern's victory in the quarter-final second leg and their spot in the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Mikel Arteta's team will now shift their focus back to the Premier League, gearing up for a trip to Molineux on Saturday evening to face Wolves.

Die einzigartige Fähigkeit der Bayern München, in entscheidenden Momenten die Oberhand zu gewinnen, hat sich wieder einmal bewiesen. Kimmichs kraftvolles Kopfballtor war das Tor, das Arsenal aus dem Wettbewerb geworfen hat. Die ersten 20 Minuten waren zäh und beide Teams hatten nur wenige Torchancen, aber nach und nach öffnete sich das Spiel. In der 24. Minute vereitel

As a football fan, I couldn't help but hold my breath during the first half. But wow, what a second half from Bayern Munich! Kimmich's header was the game-changer and Neuer's saves were crucial. Tough loss for Arsenal, but Bayern definitely deserved the win.

As an Arsenal fan, this hurts. We had our chances, but Bayern was just too strong. Congrats to Bayern, but we'll come back stronger next year!
