#UCL: Arsenal, Milan fall at home

Arsenal will have much work to do in the second leg of their UEFA champions league tie against Bayern Munich after a 0:2 loss at home.

The home team had the early chance to go ahead in the first half, after Mesut Ozil was brought down in penalty area by Boateng. The German however missed the opportunity as his penalty was saved by Manuel Neuer.

Goals by Toni Kroos and Thomas Mueller gave Champions League holders Bayern Munich a 2-0 win over 10-man Arsenal in their last 16, first-leg match.

The hosts had goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny sent off for a rash challenge on Arjen Robben late in the first half, and that changed the course of the game. A penalty was awarded; Alaba stepped up to take the spot kick but missed.

Milan vs Athletico Madrid

Diego Costa headed home seven minutes from time to give Atletico Madrid a 1-0 win away to AC Milan at the San Siro in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie on Wednesday.

Milan had the best chances in the first half, with former Real Madrid man Kaka striking the bar and then having a header brilliantly turned onto the post by Atletico goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.

Costa’s goal was his 27th in all competitions this season, and his fifth in the Champions League.
