  • Renato Sanches warms up before getting down to business on Monday morning

Two huge games take place in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday at 2:45 p.m. ET.

The England global told reporters: "You don't look into history too much". It's very hard just after a game [to analyse], it's a shock as well to lose at that level and on top of that we made everything wrong - the fifth goal shows that.

"We have the advantage of playing the second game at home and this is our chance to knock them out". Since we play the second leg at home, a goal at the Allianz Arena will be hugely vital.

Arsenal are the underdogs heading into the game after the recent stuttering run of form in the Premier League left them 10 points behind leaders Chelsea.

"It's true that it's not always easy but it's important that you feel happy".

Arsenal were pinned back and offered little going forward until a risky free-kick from Mesut Ozil caused confusion in the Bayern Munich defence.

Caster Semenya will have to wait for unexpected Olympic gold
Speaking shortly after the Wada report was released, Semenya said earning the gold in this way would nearly be an empty victory. The decision sees Semenya add a second Olympic title to her name having emerged victorious in the 800m in Rio previous year .

"He looked particularly wounded. We know that we can change some of the negative feelings around because of what's going on in the Premier League at the moment". The 20-year-old clearly has the potential to be a top player at the north London club, but needs a spell out of the starting line-up.

"I think it will be him that makes the decision". Lewandowski was able to find more space in the penalty area than in recent games, and he certainly made it count.

"I can't ever say that I'd like to see him go when you've won things", he said on BT Sport. Arsenal appeared to be in the tie at the break when they were level at 1-1, but capitulated in the second-half to write a familiar story for supporters.

Chances towards the end of the first period continued to be created with Lewandowski and Mats Hummels both missing the target with headers, while Ozil found himself clear in on goal with just seconds of the half remaining, yet he was unable to find a way past Neuer.

The Poland striker set up Thiago with a ideal flick for Bayern's third goal three minutes later and the Spaniard grabbed his second with a low drive before substitute Mueller completed the rout two minutes from time.

The visitors had even started the second half the brighter of the two sides but lost captain Koscielny to a muscle injury just as they looked at their most unsafe.
