Player to watch: Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. If the Gunners are to have a chance, the Chilean has to have the game of his life. He came off the bench and only played a half against Liverpool this weekend, so he should be fresh and ready to go.

Arsenal suffer second-biggest knockout loss in Champions League history

The Gunners meekly bowed out of the Champions League last-16 as Bayern Munich ran rampant at the Emirates

Arsenal's 10-2 aggregate defeat to Bayern Munich in the round of 16 tied the Gunners for the second-biggest knockout-stage loss in Champions League history.

The Gunners lost both legs of the last-16 tie by a 5-1 scoreline. The German champions essentially put the tie away in the first leg at the Allianz Arena on Feb. 15 before furthering Arsenal's misery at the Emirates on Tuesday.

Bayern Munich hold the record for the largest margin of victory in the Champions League knockout phase by virtue of a 12-1 aggregate win over Sporting Lisbon in the 2009 round of 16.

With Tuesday's result, Arsenal join Werder Bremen (10-2 loss to Lyon in the 2005 round of 16) and Bayer Leverkusen (10-2 defeat to Barcelona in the 2012 round of 16) as teams to lose Champions League knockout ties by eight goals on aggregate.

Arsene Wenger under more pressure after Arsenal's Champions League loss to Bayern Munich

Arsene Wenger's future as Arsenal manager has again been questioned after the Gunners departed the Champions League via a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayern Munich at a stunned Emirates Stadium.

Bayern ran riot to reach the quarter-finals with a 10-2 on aggregate against Arsenal, who was left humiliated by its worst home defeat since 1998.

"I felt that we produced a performance with spirit and pride that we wanted and after that the story finished badly," the under pressure Wenger said.

"The fact the end result will not highlight the quality of our performance is very disappointing."
Trailing 5-1 from the first leg and striving to become the first team in Champions League history to overturn such a deficit, Arsenal led at half-time through Theo Walcott's goal.

But once Robert Lewandowski equalised from the penalty spot and Arsenal captain Laurent Koscielny was sent off, the Bundesliga leaders ran amok against their dispirited hosts.

Robben capitalised on a defensive mistake in the 68th minute before substitute Douglas Costa curled in a third to send Arsenal's fans streaming towards the exits.

Bayern was not finished though and Arturo Vidal struck twice as Arsenal slumped to a seventh successive elimination at the competition's last-16 stage in humiliating fashion.

Arsenal fans had mounted a small-scale demonstration calling for an end to manager Wenger's 21-year reign at the club before kick-off, yet there was plenty to admire from his team in the first half as they attempted mission impossible.

Arsenal fades after bright start

In his program notes Wenger called for a salvaging of pride after Arsenal's second-half capitulation in Germany.

Alexis Sanchez was restored to the starting line-up after being dropped by Wenger against Liverpool and when Walcott smashed in a 20th-minute opener, it seemed Arsenal would at least exit with heads held high.

Olivier Giroud, pressed into action immediately before kick-off when Danny Welbeck injured himself in the warm-up, wasted a great chance to make it 2-0 straight after the interval.

Then it all went horribly wrong for Arsenal and turned into a personal nightmare for Wenger whose position will again come under intense scrutiny once the dust has settled.

Bayern levelled on the night when Lewandowski was pushed over while running into the box by Koscielny in the 55th minute.

Referee Tasos Sidiropoulos reached for his red card, ending Koscielny's evening, and Arsenal swiftly collapsed, just as it did when the French defender went off injured in the first leg.

Lewandowski sent David Ospina the wrong way from the spot to knock the stuffing out of Arsenal. Robben then capitalised on some poor defending to put Bayern ahead before substitute Douglas Costa curled in a third in the 78th minute.

If it had been a boxing match the towel would have been thrown in but there was no hiding place for Arsenal and Vidal struck two late goals, both from close-range as the home defence went AWOL, to the obvious glee of Bayern's sizeable support.

Bayern fell just short of matching its 11-goal victory margin over two legs against Sporting Lisbon in 2009 when it won 12-1 on aggregate.
