He that is down, need fear no fall ...Bayern Munich thrashes Arsenal (Fans react)

Bayern Munich confirmed their spot in the Champions League quarterfinals with a 5-1 win at 10-man Arsenal on Tuesday to advance 10-2 on aggregate. A first-half Theo Walcott goal gave Arsenal a glimmer of hope, but Laurent Koscielny was sent off while conceding a penalty soon after the break, and Robert Lewandowski scored from the spot.

Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa then added goals before a Arturo Vidal added gloss to the scoreline with a late brace. With the result mostly in hand after the 5-1 first leg in Germany, many Arsenal fans began their night with a pregame march to the Emirates calling for Arsene Wenger to step down. And after Arsenal were dealt an additional blow by losing Danny Welbeck to an injury in the warm-up, Bayern were comfortable in possession in the opening minutes before the Gunners found their footing.

Olivier Giroud, starting in place of Welbeck, saw the first real chance on 13 minutes, but his header from close range only scraped the outside of the post. Walcott provided Arsenal’s goal on 20 minutes after he split two defenders and blasted a shot into the roof of the net from the side of the six-yard box. Bayern nearly erased the goal four minutes later as Vidal saw his header saved by Ospina, then put his follow-up attempt over the bar.

Meanwhile fans of both team have taken to social media to vent their various opinions. More of such when you continue.....
