Arsenal claim 3-2 shootout win Bayern Munich in Shanghai

Arsenal claim 3-2 shootout win Bayern Munich in Shanghai”

The Gunners drew 1-1 against the Germans in sweltering Shanghai on Wednesday following a stoppage-time equaliser from Alex Iwobi before winning a penalty shoot-out 3-2.

Leicester beat West Bromwich Albion 7-6 on penalties to reach Saturday's final after their game at the Hong Kong Stadium had finished 1-1 in normal time.

Ozil played 45 minutes before being withdrawn but was unable to register an assist or goal.

Instead of shooting first time, the Spaniard attempted to walk the ball into the net before he was stopped in his tracks by Cech.

Arsenal haven't had particularly fond experiences of facing Bayern Munich in recent years, and were smashed 10-2 by the German giants when they faced off in the Champions League first knockout round last season.

We had a nightmare last season in the second-half. Bernat's cross to an unmarked James Rodriguez, who's volley was saved superbly by Cech.

In the 58th minute, Arsenal's Egypt worldwide was booked for a harsh challenge on Tolisso.

Tolisso the one that got away - The most impressive performer for Bayern was either Tolisso or RIbery and the former is showing no signs of stepping up from Lyon to Bayern. In the 71st minute Petr Cech came off for Martinez and received a huge round of applause.

Both teams made changes at the break and the tempo of the match slowed. In the 94th minute, the Nigerian global Iwobi equalized for Arsenal after heading in the ball past Fruchtl and sent the match to penalties.

There, it was goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez who was the hero, stopping two spot kicks to secure victory for the English side, making it three wins from three in pre-season so far.

In fact, the Gunners have already beaten Bayern Munich in a nail biting, penalty ending match.

Will it be four 5-1 defeats in a row for Arsenal?

Right at the death he got his reward as he powered home a header to take the match to penalties.
