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.

Lukasz 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.

    sirius fc & brit commentators rightly giving Robben a hard time, without mentioning the shove Lucas got away with to get the goal.......show your kids the Mueller miss as the reason you follow your PK in instead of ball watching......
