Bayern Munich hold the record for the largest margin of victory in the Champions League knockout phase by virtue of a 12-1 aggregate win over Sporting Lisbon in the 2009 round of 16.

With Tuesday's result, Arsenal join Werder Bremen (10-2 loss to Lyon in the 2005 round of 16) and Bayer Leverkusen (10-2 defeat to Barcelona in the 2012 round of 16) as teams to lose Champions League knockout ties by eight goals on aggregate.
