Bayern annihilate Gunners 5-1 | MUNDIAL MORNINGS

THURSDAY 05 NOVEMBER 2015

It was an onslaught from the word go. Arsenal’s heaviest
defeat in European history.

By half time Bayern had already fired 12 on target shots at
Arsenal keeper Petr Cech.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger played a war-torn side. Losing
Hector Bellerin                and Laurent
Koscielny to injury left detrimental gaps in defense.    

It only took nine minutes for the world’s most inform
striker to score his fourth Champions league goal in four games.

The Polish striker marked his seventh goal in his last seven
Champions League games.

Thomas Muller netted the second before David Alaba scored a 25
yard screamer from outside the box. His sweetly connected shot was no match for
Cech, finding the top right corner of the net.

Bayern’s pace when breaking from their defensive line was
evident all game, something which Gabriel Paulista was struggling with at the
back.

The second half was much of the same for Bayern, with Arjen Robben
scoring to make it 4-0.

The one positive the Gunners can take out of this match is
Oliver Giroud’s goal in the 68th minute. The French striker has
scored in his last three of four Champions League games against Bayern Munich.

He will need to be in form if they are to win the North
London Derby against in-form Tottenham this weekend.

Mullers double made it 5-1 and has given Arsenal very little
chance of making it out of the group stage.

SUBSTITUTE SAVIOR FELIPE PARDO

Columbian forward Felipe Pardo has saved the day for
Olympiakos.

The Greek giants trailed at half time, thanks to a Dinamo
Zagreb goal from Armin Hydric.

Pardo had the midas touch, scoring a goal with his first
touch of the game. The game looked like it was heading for a draw until Pardo
popped up again.

The striker scored the winner in the 90th minute,
sending the fans into total hysteria.

The win puts Olympiakos six points ahead of Zagreb and
Arsenal with two games remaining; which seems like a certainty for the Greeks
to progress to the next round.

If their win wasn’t special enough, their pre-match TIFO
certainly was.
