Arsenal v Bayern Munich: Champions League – as it happened
I’ll have to go and have a lie-down and a long think about how exactly they won it, but the fact of the matter is that they did. Bayern Munich controlled the game for long periods of each half, but Arsenal always looked dangerous on the break and caught them with two sucker-punches from Olivier Giroud and Mesut Ozil. They’ve got three points in Group F, where Olympiakos have beaten Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia tonight. Panic over - the season is young yet!
It’s all over, after a comical second goal from the Gunners. With Arsenal’s goal under siege, Hector Bellerin was sent galloping down the right wing on the counter. Did he head for the corner to kill time? Of course not, he plays for Arsenal. Instead he got around his man and squared the ball for Mesut Ozil, who side-footed goalwards. Neuer looked to have made another world class save, but either the linesman or official behind the goal decided - correctly it seems - that the ball had crossed the line.
