    "We needed this win to stay in the Champions League and try to qualify for the next stage. We have to think Petr Cech too - he had a fantastic game."

  20. Euro round-up

    Gunners with work to do...


    Olympiakos have held on to win 1-0 in Zagreb and sit second in Arsenal's group, level on points with Bayern Munich and three points ahead of the Gunners.

    The goals have finally stopped in Germany, where Roma and Bayer Leverkusen drew 4-4 in a breathless contest.

    Valencia and Zenit both won in Group H and look well positioned, while the holders Barcelona cruised to a 2-0 win away at BATE - Ivan Rakitic hit both. 

  21. Group G

    Chelsea are third in Group G after three games, they have four points and leaders Porto have seven.

    "Absolutely brilliant by Bellerin. He uses his pace, hooks it across and yes it's Ozil and over the line. I can't believe they've beaten Bayern with all the possession Bayern have had. Goals win games.

    "A massive result tonight. Arsenal needed a result and three points. They are firmly back in the group and it keeps the momentum going. On Saturday they can go top of the Premier League. They had to defend for their lives but what a win for Arsenal."

    Mesut Ozil (90 mins)

    Mesut Ozil scores

    Brilliant from Hector Bellerin! He cuts out a loose pass, drives on at real pace and then picks out Mesut Ozil six yards out. Ozil sees his shot clawed out by the brilliant Manuel Neuer but after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain puts the rebound over the assistant behind the goal signals that the German's effort was in.

    It was too. A good yard over the line!

  31. Post update

    Almost sensational stuff! Robert Lewandowski turns Laurent Koscielny on the edge of the box, he gets inside the area and looks to pull the trigger but Koscielny does brilliantly to deflect it away...


    Arsenal 1-0 Bayern Munich

    FOUR MINUTES added on. Douglas Costa loses the ball and Mesut Ozil carries the ball 65 yards up the pitch, He can't find a fellow red shirt but he takes it away from danger...

  33. Euro goals...

    Zenit 3-1 Lyon


    Who are the only side in the Champions League with nine points from a possible nine?

    Yep, Andre Villa-Boas is smiling. His Zenit side lead Lyon 3-1. All but into the last eight.

    Petr Cech easily behind Thiago's rising strike from 20 yards to hang on to it. Arsenal inching towards a big Champions League win...

  35. Euro goals

    Leverkusen 4-4 Roma

    Admir Mehmedi celebrates

    What a game in Leverkusen. The two sides have now shared 30 shots and Roma -  two down at one point - have now blown their own two goal lead. Quick-fire goals from Kevin Kampl and Admir Mehmedi have pulled Leverkusen level. So Roma are not going to get that elusive away win in the Champions League. 

    Make no mistake, this would be hugely damaging for the Italian side. They'd be bottom of their group on two points.

    Arsenal 1-0 Bayern Munich

    A few of you have let me know that there was an element of handball about that Olivier Giroud goal - and I can see it on second viewing. Giroud headed the ball against his own hand - he knew nothing about it.

    Giroud has a chance again but heads it straight at Manuel Neuer. Neuer then runs into the Frenchman - who is booked for blocking him off.

    Barcelona introduce Gerard Gumbau as they ring the changes in Belarus. They'll top their group on seven points from Roma on four.

    Roma are also now on four goals tonight as their remarkable comeback at Bayer Leverkusen now sees them have a 4-2 cushion. Iago Falque got the last from Gervinho's assist.

    Arsenal 1-0 Bayern Munich

    John Hartson

    BBC Radio 5 live at the Emirates Stadium

    Arsenal scores

    "Neuer comes flapping out, he is nowhere. Giroud gets his luck for being brave but a goalkeeping mistake. What a substitution, Giroud has only been on five minutes.

    "For his two great saves in the first half, that was poor. For one of his quality, that was very, very poor, he just comes flapping, just waving his arms."

  45. GOAL - Arsenal 1-0 Bayern Munich

    Olivier Giroud (77 mins)

    Olivier Giroud celebrates

    What was all that about the excellence of Manuel Neuer?! It's the old 'wet Wednesday in Stoke argument' as Neuer has a shocker against the set-piece. Just a big ball into the middle from Santi Cazorla, Neuer comes out, positive, but flaps at it, misses it and sub Olivier Giroud heads in from close range!

    It is pretty toasty in the Arsenal half as the above Bayern Munich heatmap shows. 

    Manuel Neuer pretty much has just David Alaba and Jerome Boateng for company in his own half, and even then he will have to shout to them, as they are up by the halfway line.

  54. Post update

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Bayern dominating possession now, death by a thousand passes as the midfield just ping it around. No real imminent danger though as Robert Lewandowski is snuffed out. 

  55. GOAL - BATE 0-2 Barcelona

    Ivan Rakitic (65 mins)

    Ivan Rakitic celebrates

    A second excellent goal from Ivan Rakitic as he collects a pass inside the area and chips into the net. Silky smooth. 


    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Kiev counter well and it's Andriy Yarmolenko who beats two men and then slips a lovely pass into the run of Derlis Gonzalez. The angle is tight but his shot is a good one and Asmir Begovic makes a big save at his near post. Begovic then comes off his line to claw a cross away as the hosts pile on some pressure. 

  57. 'Up the tempo'

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    John Hartson

    BBC Radio 5 live at the Emirates Stadium

    "Arsenal need to up the tempo. Some of the players are just walking around and it's Bayern Munich who are looking to force the issue. Bayern have made them work. The possession in the first half was a massive amount of chasing for Arsenal to do."

    Xabi Alonso shot graphic
  60. Roma come from two down...

    Leverkusen 2-3 Roma

    Roma have had three shots on target and guess what? They have three goals. The Serie A side were two goals down early on but have battled back to lead. Miralem Pjanic has got them in business and on course for a first win of the 2015-16 Champions League campaign.

    Elsewhere Hulk is Zenit's super hero, they lead again, 2-1 against Lyon in Russia. That result would take them onto nine points and leave Lyon on one.

  61. Post update

    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea's choreography is just a bit off isn't it? Eden Hazard starts a counter attack but every aspect of the move is 5% off. His pass is behind Cesc Fabregas, he then overcooks a touch and has to stretch to flick it wide to Diego Costa. Costa's touch is heavy and then his cross is poor. 

  62. SUBSTITUTION - Ramsey off

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Bayern Munich have started this half like they did the first. How long can Arsenal keep the visitors out, with barely 6% possession?


    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    What a hit! Robert Lewandowski comes out of the penalty area to forage on the left wing, the ball comes back inside and then pops up for the Pole 18 yards out. The Machine hammers the shot first time, instinctive, and it's flying in until Petr Cech turns it over the top.

  67. Post update

    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Kurt Zouma is built like a linebacker but he's done OK out at right-back so far, he gets out of position slightly but recovers well and has the pace to make the tackle. Cesc Fabregas then shoots low and hard and on target at the other end. 

  68. CLOSE!

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Douglas Costa has been the man of the match so far. You wonder where Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery fit into this team when fit. maybe they don't? Costa skips away from company again and then flashes a shot just over the top from 20 yards!

  69. GOAL - BATE 0-1 Barcelona

    Ivan Rakitic (48 mins)

    Ivan Rakitic celebrates

    Pick it out. Ivan Rakitic, 20 yards, top corner. The Croatian is given space centrally and plants the ball high into the net with little fuss. It's right footed and powerful. Barca finally break through and are heading for seven points.

  70. Bellerin needs help

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    John Hartson

    BBC Radio 5 live at the Emirates Stadium

    "Bellerin is struggling against Costa. Costa has been their biggest threat and Bellerin needs some help. Aaron Ramsey down that right hand side needs to come back a bit because Bayern are having too much joy down that side."

  99. Different gravy

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich


    Arsenal blew away Manchester United before the international break, absolutely dominating possession inside the first quarter-of-an-hour as they raced into a two-goal lead. United just couldn't handle them.

    It is different story today, with Bayern Munich dictating play as much as Arsenal did against their Premier League rivals back on 4 October.

    To Arsenal's credit, though, they are keeping the German side at bay, and creating one or two chances.

    Bayern Munich
  100. CLOSE!

    Bayern continue to probe at the Arsenal defence, Xabi Alonso feeding Arturo Vidal on the edge of the area and he fires a shot right at Petr Cech.

    Arsenal have to make do with scraps on the break and Theo Walcott fires wide under pressure. 

  103. Hazard alert

    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Busy return for Eden Hazard. He's hit the post and, as his touch map shows, he's been probing the Kiev defence. Chelsea are creating the better chances. Jose Mourinho will be disappointed his side is not ahead.

  104. CLOSE!

    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Kiev's best moment! They work the ball nicely down the left, it's squared to Vitaliy Buyalskiy, he shoots from 22 yards out and it is deflected wide off the toe of John Terry. 

  105. Chicharito on fire...

    Euro goals...

    Javier Hernandez

    Leverkusen take an early two-goal lead in Germany and Roma - on just one point in the group - are now in need of serious inspiration. 

    Elsewhere, Valencia lead 1-0 at home against Gent - Sofiane Feghouli  with the strike - and Zenit are one up against Lyon. A win would put Andre Villas-Boas' side on the brink of the next stage.

    In Belarus, Barcelona are peppering BATE Borisov's goal. They've had 76% of the ball and seven shots at goal, forcing a number of saves.

    Who is the away team again? This average position map shows just how pegged back Arsenal players have been in the opening stages.

  110. CLOSE!

    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Chelsea could be two or three up now. First Willian bends a free-kick into the middle which is inches wide, before Nemanja Matic drives on from the halfway line, he beats two men, it opens up for him and he toes a shot just wide. Not the man you want on the shot maybe but the run was brilliant...

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Lovely delivery from Xabi Alonso, swinging in a free-kick right into the corridor, it swings just wide of the post as Petr Cech scrambles across.

    The Bayern fans, now they are in, are making a right old din. There is a man with a megaphone facing his own fans and orchestrating the noise. How do they get those in the ground?

    Eden Hazard

    Eden Hazard has been more like his old self in these opening stages but now he's taken a sore one, Andriy Yarmolenko stood on his toe and in the cold that will sting all night long. He'll try and run that off. 

  116. GREAT SAVE!

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Bayern now having a good spell - and that's a great chance! Thomas Muller plays the one-two with Thiago, Thiago middles the shot from 12 yards but it's straight at Petr Cech and he beats it clear. High-quality match so far.

    "Bayern Munich getting lots of the ball but Arsenal are fairly comfortable. Nothing really threatening Petr Cech's goal and Arsenal look dangerous on the break."


    Dynamo Kiev 0-0 Chelsea

    Willian, who played in Ukraine for Donetsk, has a low shot on target for Chelsea as Jose Mourinho's men continue to look dangerous.

    And then Eden Hazard rattles the post! Switched it on to his right foot, and bent a low shot against the frame of the goal. Lovely feet!

    Manuel Neuer saves

    Lovely football again from Arsenal. Alexis Sanchez drives at the defence, finds Mesut Ozil to his right, the German's shot is low and hard but Manuel Neuer extends his wrist to push it out. What a great save, and Theo Walcott can't connect. Very promising start from the hosts.

    Strong start from Chelsea with Willian looking a threat down the right flank. Cesc Fabregas has his first shot of the night, low and easy for the keeper.

    Arsenal 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Lovely football! Santi Cazorla dissects the Bayern backline with a peach of a pass, right into the run of Hector Bellerin. Bellerin serves up a tap-in for Theo Walcott but the offside flag is raised. Great football.

    BATE 0-0 Barcelona

    Neymar is wearing gloves, Luis Suarez is clasping his hands together before kick off and blowing on them furiously. Barcelona have never played at BATE Borisov's new stadium. They now know it's cold.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Spain, with 59 players, leads the way. Brazil, with 53, is second.

    The 12? Kieran Gibbs, Ashley Young, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Chris Smalling, Raheem Sterling, Gary Cahill, Joe Hart, Wayne Rooney, Phil Jones, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Luke Shaw.

    Why is only one defender on the shortlist?

    Mark Lawrenson

    Former Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Because there aren't many good defenders in European football in all honesty. Since Platini came in and tried to outlaw the tackle from behind, there's hardly even a tackle.

    "It's basically turning into basketball. Defenders are frightened to death now."

    Javier Mascherano is the only defender on the Ballon d'Or shortlist.

    Muller and Ozil

    Thomas Muller says Bayern will keep a close eye on his international team-mate Mesut Ozil during tonight's fixture, singling the Arsenal playmaker out as a threat.

    "Mesut is very lively," says Muller. "His left foot is outstanding and he's always got a great eye for a pass to a team-mate. His style of play fits perfectly to Arsenal’s game. 

    "Mesut can hurt anyone, especially in London, where I see Arsenal as being a tick stronger than when they play away. We need to prevent Mesut from playing those dangerous passes in the final third."

    On the rumored summer departure of Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola he adds: "The question is, will they get a manager like Pep Guardiola? They would be very, very disappointed. He is able to change their system even in the game and that is something we have not seen much in Germany before. That would be a hard legacy I think."

    Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger became uncharacteristically tetchy when it was suggested he had made a mistake leaving out Petr Cech for David Ospina against Olympiakos in their last group game here at The Emirates - only to see the Colombian drop a corner into his own net.

    For all his defensiveness, Wenger is clearly not risking similar accusations against Bayern Munich tonight. Cech is back for a game that Arsenal, even though various permutations for qualification for the knockout phase remain, cannot realistically afford to lose.

  160. Walcott gets the nod

    "He's gone with Theo Walcott who is really getting a run in that centre-forward role. People questioned could he do it. Was his finishing good enough? But he's shown, he is getting in behind. With his pace he will be a big threat for Arsenal tonight."

    Dynamo Kiev v Chelsea (19:45 BST)

    Jose Mourinho is looking confident in the dugout in Kiev's Olympic Stadium. The Chelsea boss has made three changes to the side that started the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa last weekend, with Eden Hazard, defender Gary Cahill and midfielder Nemanja Matic all returning. Making way are injured forward Pedro, midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and defender Baba Rahman.

    Looking at Chelsea's team-sheet, it looks like Kurt Zouma will start at right-back.

  162. Team news

    Arsenal v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    Arsenal are unchanged from the side that beat Watford 3-0 on Saturday. That means Theo Walcott leads the attack once again, while Petr Cech is in goal. Fellow shotstopper David Ospina is out with a shoulder injury.

    Arsenal XI: Cech, Bellerín, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Sanchez, Walcott. Subs: Debuchy, Gibbs, Arteta, Giroud, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Chambers, Macey

    One change for Bayern Munich from the team that beat Werder Bremen 1-0 at the weekend, with Douglas Costa coming in and Rafinha dropping to the bench.

    Bayern Munich XI: Neuer, Thiago, Alonso, Boateng Lahm, Bernat, Alaba, Vidal, Muller, Costa,  Lewandowski. Subs: Ulreich, Martinez, Rafinha, Kirchhoff, Coman, Kimmich, Gaudino
