Just 11 minutes into Bayern Munich’s first leg Champions League clash vs Arsenal, Arjen Robben did was he does best. The Dutchman hovered on the right side and darted towards the middle to get the ball on his lethal left foot. He then ripped a perfect shot into the upper 90 past Arsenal goalkeeper, David Ospina.
One of the ties in the Champions League round of 16 that is sure to capture everyone's attention is Bayern Munich vs. Arsenal.
Both teams have been able to find success this season in their respective leagues. Bayern Munich sits at the top of the Bundesliga table with a record of 15 wins, four draws and one loss. Arsenal sit in fourth place in the Premier League with a record of 15 wins, five draws and five losses.
For the first time in his career, it appears Thomas Muller is off of his game. The Bayern attacker has only been able to contribute one goal in 16 Bundesliga appearances for the team. Muller has contributed at least 13 goals in each of his past four Bundesliga seasons (with 20 last year), and has been praised as an vital piece for Bayern.
The only time Müller found the back of the net this season was against Wolfsburg on December 10. He also got an assist in that game.
Philipp Lahm is retiring. That is a sad thing.
Throughout his career, Lahm has been two things: a winner, and criminally underrated. He captained Germany during their 2014 World Cup win and captained Bayern Munich to numerous Bundesliga titles, Champions League titles and domestic cup titles.

Bayern Munich are like a B1G college football team. They grind teams down into dust and break wills. They keep the ball forever so when the opposing team gets it they don't know what to do with it.
Such was the case against Wolfsburg in the DFB Pokal Tuesday.

For years now, the top dog of the Bundesliga has been FC Bayern Munich. Apart from winning the Bundesliga championship 26 times on a consistent basis ever since the 1968-69 season, Bayern has been able to establish themselves as a powerhouse of Germany football.
