Pep Guardiola hailed his players’ control and concentration following Bayern Munich’s 3-1 aggregate win against Arsenal in the two-game UEFA Champions League Round of 16 series, which ended on Tuesday night with a 1-1 draw in Munich.
“We managed to minimize the number of mistakes we made,” the Bayern Munich boss said, adding: “We played
in a very intelligent way. I am very pleased with my team. ...They were only better in the first eight minutes of the first leg, other than that we were the better side. Arsenal did not have any
