Not conceding key to beat Arsenal, says Bayern's Hummels

Jan Ortega | 17 February, 2017, 07:44

Bayern Munich's Mats Hummels said keeping a clean sheet in Wednesday's first leg would be the key to extending Arsenal's last 16 Champions League misery. "We are professional, we have a second leg and we will try to win". Conceding four goals in the second half compounded a miserable night for the north London club.

Philipp Lahm floated a ideal cross into the box and Lewandowski rose high above defender Shkodran Mustafi to drill in a header in the 53rd minute.

Arsenal have not had a world-class defensive midfielder since Gilberto Silva.

"We looked mentally very jaded and very vulnerable", admitted the Frenchman.

Bild awarded Robben, Lewandowski and Thiago top marks, but arguably the biggest victor was Ancelotti.

Farah, whose journey from war-torn Somalia as a child took in Djibouti before arriving in England aged eight, labelled it a policy of "ignorance and prejudice that could keep him apart from his family (he and his family are based in OR where he trains)". In Munich, Bayern snatched an 11th minute lead from a vintage Robben goal, cutting inside from the right and curling into the top left corner in off the crossbar. "And it leapt, like Ancelotti said it would".

Arsenal have lost in the last 16 in each of the last six seasons and exited at the hands of Bayern at this stage of the competition in 2005, 2013 and 2014.

The Germany star, who netted 20 league goals last season, has hit just one in 2016/17. "The last 25 minutes was a nightmare for us".

These players have risen to the occasion against Bayern before, beating them twice in recent years.

Wenger raised eyebrows with his decision to start David Ospina over Petr Cech, while some fans also criticised their long-serving manager for not starting Theo Walcott.

After a series of mediocre Bundesliga performances, Ancelotti was under pressure to deliver and his team's display charmed the critics.

'People always question the German international's record in the big games, but what is Arsenal's record like in the big games?

"It's taken Wenger a while, but he's finally got his team playing like Barcelona in Europe".

The late Valeri Lobanovsky is the "second most capped" Champions League coach having experienced 12 campaigns, mainly with Dynamo Kiev, without ever lifting the trophy.

Keown, who won three league titles under Wenger, suggested this was the nadir of the 67-year-old's reign. He cares for the club, he lives his life for the football club and has done for two decades now.
