Bayern Munich vs Arsenal live score, result, updates, stats, lineups from Champions League quarterfinal

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are hoping to reach the semifinals of the Champions League but Bayern Munich stand in their way.

Thomas Tuchel’s side haven’t been at their best this season but this competition is their final chance to win silverware after Bayer Leverkusen lifted the Bundesliga trophy last weekend.

The Gunners were defeated by Aston Villa on Sunday which put a huge dent in their title chase, meaning the Champions League could also be their last chance at winning a trophy this season.

The winner tonight will face the victor of Manchester City vs Real Madrid – which is taking place at the same time – in the semifinals.
