WINNER: Thiago Alcantara (Bayern Munich)
In two UEFA Champions League games against Arsenal, Thiago attempted 207 passes and had a 92.5 passing completion percentage.
He kept play rolling along for Bayern and was vital in winning back the ball.
He led Bayern in tackles (three) in the 2-0 first-leg win and interceptions (five) in the 1-1 second-leg draw.
Thiago is just part of Pep Guardiola's midfield rotation and Bayern's word-class squad depth is a big factor why the club are unbeaten in 50 league games, per Bayern's official website.
LOSER: Mesut Ozil (Arsenal)
Ozil's hamstring injury in the second leg against Bayern deprived the German international of making up for his anonymous first-leg performance, per the Guardian.
Ozil's body language has progressively worsened, so the three- to six-week layoff could recharge the German mentally, as the constant criticisms of his performances temporarily stop.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger made an insightful comparison between Dennis Bergkamp and Ozil following the German failing to score a penalty against Bayern in the first-leg. Wenger told James Orr at the Independent:
It's part of the job to deal with disappointment and prove you can get on with it. He [Ozil] apologised after the game. I have seen this before with Bergkamp, missing in 1999 [in the FA Cup semi-final replay against Manchester United] and refusing after to take any penalties.
Former Arsenal manager George Graham said he was not worried about Ozil's form, pointing to Bergkamp struggling early on his Gunners' career, per Alex Varney at talkSPORT.
