Arsenal made a painfully disappointing departure from the Champions League as they were defeated by Bayern Munich in an ecstatic atmosphere at Allianz Arena.

In a tense second leg match against Arsenal, Joshua Kimmich‘s powerful header in the 63rd minute secured Bayern Munich’s spot in the Champions League semi-finals with a 3-2 aggregate victory. 

Despite being held at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal failed to capitalize on their home advantage against a Bayern side missing key players Serge Gnabry and Kingsley Coman due to injury.

Tight Encounter at Emirates Stadium

The match was closely contested, with both teams having limited opportunities to score. Arsenal’s Gabriel Martinelli had the best chance of the first half, but his shot was saved by Manuel Neuer. Meanwhile, Bayern’s Leon Goretzka hit the post, and Raphael Guerreiro’s follow-up was cleared off the line by David Raya.

Decisive Moment

Kimmich’s decisive header came in the second half, sealing Bayern’s progression to the semi-finals. Despite Arsenal’s efforts, they were unable to find an equalizer, prolonging their wait for a first Champions League title.
