The attacker took advantage of some lax defending by the Gunners but unleashed a wicked drive into the top corner to put Bayern Munich up.

It’s not a surprise that Arjen Robben likes to cut inside.

However, apparently the Arsenal defense missed the memo as it granted the Bayern Munich attacker loads of space to do just that in the first leg of their Champions League clash at the Allianz Arena.

Robben was allowed the come inside from the right and granted acres of space to do it. He took full advantage, hitting a left-footed curling blast into the top corner, leaving Arsenal keeper David Ospina with no chance.  

It was a great shot to be sure and when Robben likely doesn’t hit a blast that perfect every time. However, you can’t help but feel Arsenal should have seen it coming.

The good news for the Gunners is that Alexis Sanchez put home his own penalty miss later in the first half, to equalize the proceedings for Arsenal and get the side a potentially crucial away goal.
