Bayern Munich 5-1 Arsenal – Player Ratings

Bayern were just too good

Tom Victor

It was a miserable evening for Arsenal, who fell to a crushing defeat at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern were out of sight by half-time and ended up 5-1 winners, while victory for Olympiacos against Dinamo Zagreb leaves the Gunners needing to win their last two games to stand any chance of progress.

Here’s how their players got on:

Petr Cech – 7

Kept Arsenal in it in the first half with some sharp saves and did well to deny Robben in a late one-on-one

Mathieu Debuchy – 5

Lacked protection and never really stood a chance against Bayern’s interchanging wingers

Gabriel – 5

At fault for the opener when his efforts to play offside went wrong

Per Mertesacker – 5

Had no answer to the dynamic opposition

Nacho Monreal – 6

Looked good going forward and was unlucky that Mesut Özil converted his cross with an arm not a chest

Francis Coquelin – 5

Needs another more defensive-minded midfielder alongside him in games like this

Santi Cazorla – 4

Not good enough. Only seemed to start playing when Bayern had gone 4-0 up

Alexis Sanchez – 5

Never really got into the game, as was the case with many of Arsenal’s players

Mesut Özil – 6

At least he tried

Joel Campbell – 5

Still understandably rusty, but the game passed him by for the most part

Olivier Giroud – 6

Took his goal well but was isolated for large parts of the game


Kieran Gibbs – 6

Tough to judge as the opposition had the game already won, but seemed to do just fine

Alex Iwobi

Not given enough time to make an impression

Calum Chambers

Had even less time than Iwobi
