  • FT: It's all over - Bayern Munich 0 Arsenal 2
    3/13/2013 9:36:14 PM
  • FT: What a performance from Arsenal but it's all for nothing.
    3/13/2013 9:36:41 PM
  • FT: A fantastic display from Arsenal but in the end it's Champions League heartache for the Gunners. They defended brilliantly at times and took the two of the few chances that came their way but it wasn't enough.
    3/13/2013 9:38:39 PM
  • Let me just pay my respect to the Gunners.....great stop Swansea City....we can finish in the champions league Im sure
    3/13/2013 9:38:42 PM
  • What a great show of scoring ability from arsenal, only if they hadn't conceded that late goal in the first leg, then they would be through,
    3/13/2013 9:38:47 PM
  • FT: We want to hear what you make of that performance. Have Arsenal restored their pride? Has Wenger answered his critics? Let us know by commenting using the button above. Or, Tweet at me, Simon Rice, here... We'll post the best ones.
    3/13/2013 9:40:47 PM
  • The Frenchman just winning Gooners today. Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, and absolutely, Arsene Wenger. #ArsenalPositive :)
  • Finally ... we have a team after RvP left...and we need to keep this team together and avoid making people call us a super market...Yes! If we can beat Bayern...this is just the sign of bigger things to come...the old Arsenal is indeed back! The Invincibles!
    3/13/2013 9:42:11 PM
  • FT: There will be no English teams in Friday's quarter-final Champions League draw. Just to let you know, we'll be covering events in Nyon live, right here on The Independent.

  • arsenal have played reall well,and hve done really well to get 2 goals at the allianz
    3/13/2013 9:43:46 PM
  • FT: In tonight's other match, Malaga sprung a surprise to beat Porto 2-0 on the night and go through 2-1 on aggregate.
    3/13/2013 9:45:21 PM
  • Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson...

    We knew it was important to keep it tight at the back. We were so close to doing it. Everyone wrote us off before the game but we nearly did it.
    3/13/2013 9:47:20 PM
  • BBC pundit Mark Lawrenson on Radio 5 Live...

    It was a good performance by Arsenal, and I'm glad Arsene Wenger played a strong team. They pressure could really have been on him, but after tonight it's not.
    "They defended together and the balance of the team was really right, but they didn't really have that quality in the final third to really unhinge Bayern.
    3/13/2013 9:48:49 PM
  • Speaking as a Bayern fan, that was beyond humiliating. I applaud Arsenal for showing true footballing spirit. Yes, hey didn't win right now but they have the stuff to make a good outfit next season. As for Bayern, you have to always hold your breath. This season has been unreal but as a fan, you always have to have the expectation that the team will have the glory/confidence go to their head and lose it. I hope this is a good enough wake up call for Bayern.

  • Graeme Souness on Sky Sports...

    That was a shadow of the Bayern Munich we've come to expect.
    3/13/2013 9:51:18 PM
  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger...

    Maybe we were a few times lucky. The spirit and performance was there. Overall we had a great go.
    3/13/2013 9:52:24 PM
  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger...

    The overall defensive performance was very good.
    3/13/2013 9:53:18 PM
  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger...

    We now want to focus on the next one and finish the season well. It's very hard to go out of the Champions League.
    3/13/2013 9:53:59 PM
  • Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger on the Gunners' chances of qualifying for next season's Champions League...

    I'm confident we will give everything to be back next season. It's difficult to talk about that just after the game.
    3/13/2013 9:55:18 PM
  • Perhaps to put into context the result Arsenal pulled off tonight - Before tonight, Bayern had not lost at home by more than one goal for 25 months, a period spanning 52 games.
    3/13/2013 9:56:37 PM
  • Heroic though that performance was, fact remains we're out of 3 competitions and struggling to make 4th in Prem > Wenger's worst season.
  • @Arsenal players all went over to thank the fans after the game. Away support was superb. #BAYvAFC Pic here

    3/13/2013 10:00:12 PM
  • Reckon Sagna, Vermaelen and Szczesny are suddenly a little unsure about what they'll be doing at 3pm on Saturday...

  • We'd still love to hear what you made of tonight's match - using the comment form above.
    3/13/2013 10:03:04 PM
  • generally i hate to blame refs and bayern played well for first leg but the ref gave cards left right and centre that were unnecessary plus walcott was onside and neuer got no card for clear time wasting
    3/13/2013 10:03:11 PM
  • Im gonna sleep now....goodnight Gunners...oops...I mean...goodnighf Gunners Reloaded!
    3/13/2013 10:03:55 PM
  • Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben...

    Big compliments to Arsenal. Let's hope it's a wake-up call for us.
    3/13/2013 10:05:36 PM
  • So England's hopes in this year's Champions League are over... or are they? Remember David Beckham's PSG are in the final eight.
    3/13/2013 10:08:15 PM
  • As are three Spanish teams for the first time in 10 years thanks to Malaga's victory over Porto tonight.
    3/13/2013 10:08:58 PM
  • A great win for Arsenal, but it's still heartache.

    3/13/2013 10:10:09 PM
  • That's all from me and The Independent tonight. You can read Sam Wallace's match report here...
