Lewandowski Converts Penalty To Draw Bayern Closer

After a scoreless first half at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, Bayern Munich opened the scoring early in the second with a Robert Lewandowski penalty kick.

Arsenal Victory Over Middlesbrough Was No Easy Task

Before Arsenal vs. Middlesbrough, Arsene Wenger announced a formation change, which proved to be effective. Wenger chose to use a 3-4-3 formation, letting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain roam to an offensive position while playing right wing-back to try to create going forward.

In previous matches, Arsenal players have been jogging back into their final third while defending, but this was far from the case in this match. Arsenal finally showed signs of life, holding the ball the majority of the game.
