Arsenal’s only chance for silverware

Olivier Giroud

Arsenal’s European exit leaves them just two more chances to end a nine-year trophy drought this season. Arsene Wenger’s men are in the FA Cup semi-final where they will face Wigan the defending champions and are also seven points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea a gap they can close if they manage to beat Chelsea away and Man city at home respectively.

 

Though of the two titles FA cup looks to be an easy task, who won a record 16th Bundesliga game in a row against Wolfsburg on Saturday to go 20 points clear at the top.

No side has ever retained the Champions League crown but, unbeaten in the league for 49 matches and now in the quarter-finals, Bayern are strongly fancied by many to make history in Lisbon in May.

Arsenal did go into the match with reasons for hope, having been the last team to prevent the German side from scoring when they beat them 2-0 at the Allianz Arena at the same stage last season, although the Gunners went out that night on away goals.

Bayern’s defeat by Arsenal last season was the only game the Bavarians had failed to score in in their last 100 matches and a composed start by the hosts made the prospect of another shut-out an unlikely one.

The Gunners have won on three of their last six visits to Germany, with the other three trips ending in draws.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was looking a threat for Arsenal,

Bayern never looked threatened though as Muller was prevented from winning the match on the night for Bayern by Lukasz Fabianski’s penalty save, after Robben was fouled by Laurent Koscielny.
