No miracles in Munich or Madrid
[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Tuesday] There was no Arsenal victory in Munich this time though the Gunners held on for a 1-1 tie that sent Bayern Munich through to the
quarterfinals with a 3-1 aggregate win.
Last year, Arsenal won 2-0 after losing at home 3-1. On Tuesday, Lukas Podolski responded for Arsenal
shortly after Bastian Schweinsteiger had put Bayern ahead, but the Gunners never could pull closer.
Fabianski, replacing fellow Pole Wojciech Szczesny, who was suspended made a tremendous double save on Thomas
Mueller's penalty kick in the 90th minute to earn Arsenal a consolation draw.
In Madrid, Atletico Madrid's 4-1 victory that included two goals from Diego Costa gave it an impressive 5-1 aggregate victory over AC Milan for its first berth in the final eight in 17 years.
Milan's exit means not one Italian team will be in
the final eight.
