Bayern Munich have one foot in the Champions League quarter-finals after beating Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates, and rubbed their noses in it with a celebratory poem on Twitter:

Von London es nach Bayern schallt, amazing match with good result! Sorry gunners that we won we're on the way to Lissabon 😄 ^lehm #AFCFCB

Rhyming in two languages is impressive, although as Henry Winter of the Daily Telegraph pointed out, it doesn't quite rank on the level of some of Germany's finest writing:

. @fcbayern leave London with a tweeted poem: "Sorry Gunners that we won; we're on our way to Lissabon". More Gotze than Goethe

For non-German speakers, Lissabon is the German spelling of Lisbon. Who'd back against Bayern being there for the final on current form?
