Bayern Munich put a foot into the Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday as they recorded a 3-1 win over Arsenal at the Emirates.
Die Roten entered Tuesday's clash having lost six of their last eight Round of 16 away legs. But the Bavarian giants showed a completely different face at the Emirates and won their first-ever game in London.
Toni Kroos gave the visitors an early lead on seven minutes as he volleyed home from the edge of the penalty area, and Thomas Mueller made it 2-0 on 21 minutes with a tap-in. Lukas Podolski gave the hosts some hope as he nodded in early in the second half, but as the game entered its final stages, Mario Mandzukic struck to make it 3-1 to Bayern.
The result means Arsenal will need to score at least three goals in Munich and will have to win by two or more to stand a chance of advancing. Suffice to say, although the tie is not yet officially decided, Bayern have taken a huge step towards qualification for the next round.
