    In pics: Bayern Munich vs Arsenal, Champions League, Rd of 16, 2nd leg

    • Bayern Munich barely staved off an improbable comeback on Wednesday, eliminating Arsenal from the Champions League despite a 2-0 loss at home.

    • Olivier Giroud gave Arsenal an early lead in the third minute. Walcott raced into the penalty area and sent a hard, low ball through the legs of Dante and across the goal for Giroud to drive it into the roof of the net.

    • The first goal made for a nervous evening for the home crowd, although Bayern gradually took control of the game and didn't allow any more dangerous chances for the rest of the half.

    • The hosts then dominated much of the second half but were limited mostly to long-range attempts. Arsenal then added more suspense into the match by netting the second as tension flared up from both sides.

    • Laurent Koscielny (R) added the second in the 86th as Santi Cazorla sent in a corner with Koscielny beating Javi Martinez to the header and sending the ball low inside the right post.

    • Bayern are four-time winners of the competition and were runner-up twice in the last three seasons.

    • Arsenal’s exit from Champions League means England are without a team in the quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years.
