MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Wednesday] Four games, four away wins. That's the verdict after the first two days of the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League, where the seeded teams -- the group winners -- all won. In Tuesday's big match, Bayern Munich edged Arsenal, 2-0, on second-half goals by Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller following a first half that saw both teams miss penalty kicks and Arsenal keeper Wojciech Szczesny set sent off.

Fellow Pole Lukasz Fabianski came on for Szczesny after his red card for a foul on Arjen Robben in the 39th minute, but he watched as young Austrian David Alaba smashed his shot off the left post.

Arsenal's chances effectively went up in smoke in the eighth minute when Mesut Ozil had his penalty kick saved by countryman Manuel Neuer.

Last year, Arsenal lost by the same margin -- 3-1 -- at home. Bayern's third goal proved to be the difference as the Gunners won, 2-0, in Munich, to hand Bayern its only defeat of the Champions League knockout phase en route to the title.

In Milan, Atletico Madrid edged AC Milan, 1-0, on Brazilian-born Diego Costa's goal in the 83rd minute.
