Arsene Wenger has linked his side's loss to Bayern Munich to the presence of a 'second ball' on the pitch and also the early loss of Laurent Koscielny in the second half.

Arsenal could do nothing to prevent a massacre as they lost 5-1 in the first leg of the Champions League last 16 at the Allianz Arena.

To many, such an outcome isn't something surprising considering the weakness in mentality of the Gunners whenever they are to play in big games.

After going a goal behind through an Arjen Robben strike, hope which wouldn't last long got raised by Alexis Sanchez who grabbed an equaliser after Neurer saved his penalty.

While he tried as much as possible not to give excuses, the boss still maintained that the game turned around when Koscielny was taken off.

“It’s difficult to explain. We were unlucky on the second goal because they played with a second ball on the pitch.” Wenger said in his post-match interview

“We lost Koscielny very quickly in the second half at 1-1. Suddenly we collapsed. Overall, I must say they are a better team than us. Well done, Bayern. We have to focus on our next game.”

“I do not look for excuses. Its a shock of course to lose at that level. We made everything wrong, the fifth goal shows that”

With such a woeful result, it would be fair to say that Arsenal have succeeded in crashing themselves out of the Champions League even though there is still a return leg to be played.
