Arsenal left with work to do after 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich

Arsenal may be left to rue missed chances after their 2-2 home draw with Bayern Munich in Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final.

Get Football gives you a full breakdown of all the drama from an explosive night at the Emirates Stadium.

Starboy Bukayo Saka gave the home side an early lead with a lovely curled finish, but ex-Arsenal man, Serge Gnabry, capitalised on some lax defending to equalise for the visitors.

Just after the half-hour mark, some uncharacteristic poor defensive judgement from William Saliba saw Bayern awarded a penalty. The young French centre-half brought Leroy Sané down in the box.

Harry Kane loves scoring at the Emirates, and that’s exactly what he did. He’s now the most successful non-Arsenal goalscorer at the ground, taking his tally to six after tucking away a typically cool penalty in the 32nd minute.

The home side dominated possession, but couldn’t break through Bayern’s stubborn defence. In the 67th minute, Arsenal’s Gabriel should have conceded yet another penalty, picking up the ball in the box after the referee blew for the goal-kick.

In the end the Brazilian was lucky. Despite Bayern’s protests, the referee didn’t want to be a big meanie and punish such a schoolboy error.

Just five minutes later, substitute Leandro Trossard scored from close range to level. Arsenal pushed for another, but couldn’t get it. Saka had appeals for a penalty waved away in the dying embers of the game.

The Premier League leaders head to the Allianz Arena next Wednesday with the tie in the balance.
