Well what can you say after a performance like that. Bayern Munich have won every single game since the season began, but you can’t deny that Arsenal matched them from the start to the end.
Wenger made his plan to drop Ozil deeper than usual, flood the midfield and hit Bayern on the break. And it worked to a tee. The first half was a bit nerve-wracking, but Neuer had a brilliant save from Theo. It’s a great shame that Walcott couldn’t score but bringing on Giroud with half an hour to go was absolutely perfect timing.
The Frenchman scored within a minute of coming on, and although Bayern were scary as hell, Arsenal matched them every inch of the way. Petr Cech proved that Wenger made the right decision by kicking David Ospina in the shoulder when he came back from international duty, and he now simply has to play the Czech international in every Champions League game.
We are all in a dream world and cannot believe that we really pulled it off, but when Ozil finally got the goal that nobody saw except the Magic Eye, and the Gunners earned an unbelievable win against the team that have been portrayed as the “best team in the world”.
So who is that team now?
Come on you Gunners! This could really be our year….
Onwards and upwards!
