UEFA Champions League: Your Running Commentary

Bayern Munich will look to continue their dominant form today when they travel to London to take on a vulnerable looking Arsenal side that few are giving much of a chance to survive this UEFA Champions League Round of 16 match-up.

Bayern is running away with the Bundesliga, and playing some of the best soccer on the world. Arsenal? They just lost to Reading in the FA Cup. Those things aside, the Gunners will be looking to uphold their track record of stepping up in Champions League play against top competition.

The day’s other Round of 16 clash features Portuguese champion FC Porto taking on Malaga. Porto’s Colombian star Jackson Martinez will lead a dangerous attack against a strong Malaga team led by young sensation Isco.

    Good goal for Kroos quality game so far.

  3. G.Bean says:

    Very nice goal. Arsenal were caught ball-watching.

  4. Dudester says:

    Walcotts pace seems like the only way Arsenal will break down Bayern.

  5. Dudester says:

    Tie over in 20 min

  6. uksubs says:

    haha. bayern will only get better when guardiola takes over.

  7. fifawitz1313 says:

    This game could get ugly. Bayern up 2-0 in 20 mins and look completely dominant.

  8. Gnarls says:

    One 24 minutes in and Arsenal is totally outclassed.

  9. Francois says:

    Terrible challenge by Arteta, could have been a sending off. Bayern is completely dominant right now, much better side and this could get really ugly.

  10. Dudester says:

    I really did not think Bayern would dominate Arsenal this much.Especially not at the Emirates.

  11. peter says:

    Come on Arsenal—–make the second half competitive!

  12. Dinho says:

    Lugano on the bench for Malaga and Onyewu nowhere to be found….me thinks Gooch is done at this level. I sense a return to MLS sooner than later.

  13. Michael Stypulkoski says:

    This second half has been much more interesting. Arsenal scored on a corner which was clearly a goal kick. But to be fair, Bayern’s defending was shambolic.

    • Michael Stypulkoski says:

      And the Gunners will be kicking themselves for letting in that one. Back to a two-goal lead.

  14. Big Chil says:

    OT — Reports here in Colorado are that the USMNT game at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park is now sold out shortly after the public sale went into effect this morning.

  15. MiamiAl says:

    Bayern was dominant. You will see them in the Champions League finals.

  16. biff says:

    Stoke coaches say Brek Shea might be starting this weekend against Fulham and that his position at Stoke will definitely be left midfield.
