It was a tense showdown at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal’s hopes for a smooth sail into the Champions League semi-finals hit a snag as they settled for a 2-2 draw against Bayern Munich. Manager Mikel Arteta issued a stern warning to his team, stressing the importance of rectifying costly errors if they are to progress further in the tournament.

The match saw Leandro Trossard salvaging a late equalizer for Arsenal, keeping their quarter-final clash finely balanced. However, it was Harry Kane who stole the spotlight with an ice-cool penalty, putting Bayern 2-1 up in the first half. Kane, a familiar nemesis to Arsenal fans from his Tottenham days, added another goal to his Emirates tally, compounding the Gunners’ frustration.

Despite Bukayo Saka’s early opener and an overall strong performance from the Gunners, defensive lapses proved to be their Achilles’ heel. Arteta, acknowledging the team’s hesitancy and defensive errors, emphasized the need to use this experience as a learning opportunity ahead of the crucial second leg in Munich on April 17.

“We will go again in Munich. We are alive,” declared Arteta, urging his players to raise their game. “We have made some mistakes today. Let’s learn from it. These players have been unbelievable. It’s part of football. Let’s support them.”

Arteta’s rallying cry echoed a sense of belief within the team, expressing optimism about their chances in the upcoming fixture. With Arsenal’s status as favorites to advance to the last four hanging in the balance, the focus now shifts to rectifying defensive vulnerabilities and capitalizing on opportunities in Munich.
