Full-time +3 mins: There is a huge sigh of relief inside the Allianz Arena as Bayern reach the quarter finals of the Champions League. That brings an end to our LIVE coverage of the last 16 second leg tie between FC Bayern Munich and Arsenal FC in the UEFA Champions League. It wasn’t the record titleholders most convincing performance despite the fact they dominated the statistics on all fronts. The final few minutes were incredibly nervy, but ultimately three goals proved too great a hurdle for the visitors to climb as Bayern scrape through on the away goal rule. Stay with us on bundesliga.com for a full match report, as well as pictures from the game and further analysis...
90': Three minutes added on...
90’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Stand up if you're a Bayern fan" - and the whole stadium is now on its feet."
88’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Koscielny’s goal has sparked the English fans back into life. The volume is set on full blast inside the Allianz Arena.”
86'GOAL! Shades of the Inter Milan match from 2010/11 as Arsenal grab a late second to increase the tension amongst the home fans. Laurent Koscielny heads home from the visitors first corner of the match. Bayern have got to maintain their composure now if they're to book their place in the Champions League quarter finals.
83':Javi Martinez picks up a yellow card for a clash with Tomas <b<Rosicky in midfield and will therefore miss the first leg of the quarter finals providing Bayern can hold on in the closing stages.
80': Second-half substitute Gervinho almost grabbed a second for Arsenal, but after playing a neat one-two on the edge of the box his shot trickels wide with none of his teammates on hand to prod the ball over the line.
78':bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "The stadium tannoy announces that the Allianz Arena was sold-out tonight with 68,000 in attendance. Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes is barking orders at his backline, who have shown a few signs of complacency in the last few minutes."
73': Arsene Wenger sends on Gervinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, while Mario Gomez enters the fray for Bayern in place of the ineffective Mario Mandzukic.
71':Bayern are definitely not trying to protect their slim aggregate advantage. Don't forget Arsenal still need two goals to reach the quarter finals, but the hosts would be well advised to put this tie beyond reach in order to avoid a nervous end to proceedings.
67': It's all one-way traffic in the Allianz Arena as Bayern squander their best chance of the whole match. Arjen Robben is released in behind Arsenal's backline, but fails to direct the ball beyond Fabianski with a cheeky toe-poke.
62':Thomas Müller once again pops up in a dangerous position only to see his eventual effort deflected harmlessly in the hands on Fabianski. Luiz Gustavo then tries to curl an effort around Per Mertesacker, but can't quite get enough whip on it to send it the right side of the post.
58':Bayern captain Philipp Lahm is booked for the home side, only Dante and Javi Martinez would miss the next match if they pick up a yellow card tonight. At the other end though, Thomas Müller pulls the trigger from range, but can only draw a routine save out of Fabianski.
55': Theo Walcott races through on goal, but is pulled back by the assitant on the far side raising his flag. Close call.
52':bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "The fourth official is having a word with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, who is clearly annoyed with they way his side have started in the second-half."
50':bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes has already sent out his substitutes to start warming up.”
48':Arjen Robben thought better of having a shot on goal with the ball on his right foot, but Toni Kroos is far less hesitant as the German international goes within inches of levelling the scores.
SECOND HALF We're back underway at the Allianz Arena with Bayern chasing Arsenal’s one-goal lead. The hosts need to start carving out more clear-cut chances if they truly want to test Lukasz Fabianski in goal.
VIDEO:Arsenal shouldn’t underestimate the threat Bayern’s front line can pose in the second half. Arjen Robben in particular is playing like a man possessed, in both an attacking and defensive sense. Click here to watch bundesliga.com’s exclusive video feature on the Bavarians’ dynamic Dutchman.

HALF-TIMEBayern go in at the break a goal down at home to Arsenal thanks to Olivier Giroud’s early opening goal. The visitors have demonstrated very little threat since breaking the deadlock and while the Bavarians are controlling the encounter, they are yet to make the most of their numerous chances in front of goal.
44': Both sides are playing some very attractive football, but the pace has been taken out of the game in the last few minutes as Kieran Gibbs picks up the first booking of the match for a foul on Arjen Robben.
40': There is an air of trepidation surrounding the encounter at present. It's not often that Bayern have found themselves behind on the scoresheet this season, but if Saturday's encounter with Fortuna Düsseldorf is anything to go by the record titleholders aren't out of this yet.
35':bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "The Südkurve are sending out a rallying cry to their side. “Let’s go Bayern, fight and win”, is the chant that can be heard echoing around the Allianz Arena. Meanwhile, Arsenal centre-back Thomas Vermaelen is warming up on the sidelines, which could suggest the visitors are about to make a change.”
30':Bayern are dominating proceedings, but struggling to break down Arsenal's disciplined defence as Thomas Müller fires into the side-netting.
28'Arjen Robben has looked very lively during the opening half an hour and fires just wide of the target with his favoured left foot.
25’:Bayern are beginning to turn the screw. Dante has been at his playmaking best at the back, regularly releasing Philipp Lahm down the right with his raking passes. Meanwhile, Toni Kroos is being afforded time and space in midfield as he once again stings the palms of Fabianski.
18’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Arsene Wenger is making his presence felt in the coaching zone on the sidelines. Arsenal's French head coach isn't happy with what he's seeing despite his side boasting the lead."
15’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Bayern head coach Jupp Heynckes has stood up and left his seat in an attempt to urge his charges forward."
10':Bayern look to have found their rhythm after the early setback as Toni Kroos draws the first save out of Lukasz Fabianski before Luiz Gustavo flashes an effort over from the games' first corner.
5’:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "Bayern fans have responded to their side going a goal behind so early on as they begin to belt “let’s go Bayern, score a goal” in an attempt to rouse their side."
3'GOAL! With less than five minutes on the clock Arsenal get the early goal they were talking about in the pre-match build-up. Bayern's backline are caught at sixes and sevens as Theo Walcott bursts into the box to drive a low cross into the danger zone where Olivier Grioud was on hand to tap into the net.
KICK-OFF! We’re underway at the Allianz Arena and bundesliga.com will be taking you through the action, providing you with all the latest stats and offering plenty of interesting reading material throughout the 90 minutes, though there’s always an outside chance we might need extra-time to decide this fixture. Only an Arsenal miracle would see that happen so stay tuned!
Kick-off - 5 mins:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "The suspended Jerome Boateng is sitting just in front of the press area taking photos with some of the Bayern fans. Former-FCB midfielder Owen Hargreaves is also in the stadium. The teams have headed back into the changing rooms which means we’re almost ready to go!”
Kick-off - 10 mins:Bayern come into tonight’s encounter on the back of a hard-fought 3-2 win against Fortuna Düsseldorf (click here to watch highlights of the match), while Arsenal are still smarting after a 2-1 defeat in the London derby against arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Londoners have had a full ten days to prepare for this fixture, which could set the tone for the remainder of the domestic campaign.
Kick-off - 20 mins:Arsenal, who are unbeaten on their last three trips to Germany, have never overturned a home first-leg defeat in European competition, which bodes well for Bayern. The Bavarians’ aforementioned 2010/11 defeat against Inter is the only time in 22 UEFA club competition ties that they’ve lost on aggregate having won the first leg on foreign soil.
Kick-off - 25 mins:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: “Arsenal took their time taking to the field to start their pre-match warm-up. Bayern were a lot quicker out of the dressing rooms as they went through their usual exercises with the club's anthem 'Stern des Südens' ('star of the south') blaring out over the stadium's speakers.”
Kick-off - 30 mins:Bayern boast a positive record against English opposition in Europe’s elite competition having collected 14 wins, 13 draws and 10 losses. However, the record titleholders have only lost once on home soil to teams from England having secured 10 wins and 5 draws in the other fifteen encounters. The only English side to emerge victorious in Munich, excluding last year’s final, were Norwich City FC, who clinched a 2-1 win in the 1993/94 UEFA Cup second round.
Kick-off - 40 mins:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: “The stadium has remained relatively empty. It’s too cold for the fans, who have seemingly opted to stay inside as long as possible whilst they eat their pre-match sausages. The seats inside the Allainz Arena are littered with Bayern clapping devices. It could get very loud very quickly in the build-up to kick-off. Manuel Neuer is the first player to emerge onto the field to start his warm-up.”
Kick-off - 50 mins: The starting line-ups are in! As expected Bayern are without the star trio of Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Bastian Schweinsteiger, who are replaced by Dante, Javi Martinez and Arjen Robben. Otherwise, head coach Jupp Heynckes has opted to make no further changes to the side that beat Fortuna Düsseldorf3-2 on Saturday.
Kick-off - 60 mins: Tonight is the second time this season Arsenal have travelled to Germany. The Gunners had their nine-year unbeaten home record against non-English opposition ended by FC Schalke 04 in the group stages of the competition courtesy of a 2-0 defeat . The Londoners then gave away a two-goal lead in Gelsenkirchen during a 2-2 draw with the Royal Blues, who last night bowed out of the competition against Galatasary SK.

Kick-off - 70 mins:Bayern will be without wing wizard Franck Ribery this evening after the Frenchman strained ligaments in his ankle during the 3-2 win against Fortuna Düsseldorf on Saturday. Elsewhere, Jerome Boateng, who believes the hosts are “feeling positive and full of confidence” ahead of tonight’s encounter, and Bastian Schweinsteiger both miss out due to suspension.

Kick-off - 80 mins: While the runaway league leaders have been in indomitable form this season, the pain of last year’s defeat against Chelsea in the Finale dahoam is still palpable amongst Bayern fans. However, tonight’s hosts are still on course for the treble, which would go a long way to healing some of those wounds, in what is proving to be a record-breaking season for the Bavarians.
Kick-off - 90 mins:bundesliga.com Reporter at the Allianz Arena: "There are less than two hours to go before kick-off and the Munich underground trains are, like a tin of sardines, jam-packed full of Bayern and Arsenal fans alike. All the supporters want to get to the Allainz Arena!”
Kick-off - 100 mins: The snow may be falling, but FC Bayern Munich are ready to warm their fans hearts by capitalising on a 3-1 first leg lead against Arsenal FC. The atmosphere in the Bavarian capital was confident, yet cautious. Memories of a 3-2 loss to FC Internazionale Milano on home soil in the 2010/11 Round of 16 are still fresh in the mind of the Bundesliga record titleholders, who are refusing to take tonight’s encounter lightly.
