Will be bitterly disappointed to have been beaten by Podolski from such a narrow angle – although it was a wonderful strike by his international team-mate.
Seems a weak link in this Bayern side and crudely brought down Oxlade-Chamberlain to pick up an early booking.
Combined well with Ribery down the Bayern left, but too often failed to pick the right ball when around the Arsenal penalty area.
The best full-back in the world as well as the best defensive midfielder? Got forward intelligently and incisively, and was fouled when Podolski scored.
Thought he had given his side the lead but the goal was chalked off for offside. A calm, composed presence in central defence.
Took his goal well, making a late run into the box before clipping nonchalantly home. Was disciplined in the remainder of the game, ensuring that the door was locked on Arsenal's comeback hopes.
This was bad Arjen, when we have become so used to seeing good Arjen. Ludicrous dives, moaning to the referee - he is capable of so much more.
Flitted in and out of the game but was dangerous on the ball, finding space behind Arsenal's midfield and prompting throughout.
Guardiola's favourite was less effective here than he had been in London, struggling to deal with the pace and directness of Oxlade-Chamberlain. Tidy on the ball.
Lovely, delayed cross set up Schweinsteiger's goal and his early delivery should have seen Robben open the scoring.
Will surely be the fall-guy when Robert Lewandowski arrives in the summer. Seems short of the top class and could not make an impact here.
Has played extremely well every time that he has been given an opportunity this season and did not let Arsenal down here. Was left helpless for the goal and superbly denied Mandzukic.
Performances such as this show why Arsenal would be foolish to allow the right-back to leave in the summer. Back to his best this season and was solid here.
Arsenal's 'BFG' was a rather large thorn in Bayern's side, cutting out dangerous through-balls with ease and proving dominant in the air.
Has formed a wonderful combination with Mertesacker and they were excellent against an incredibly dangerous Bayern side, the Frenchman's pace proving invaluable. Conceded the late penalty, however.
Was forced out to left-back but performed admirably in his first start since January 4, defending doggedly and getting forward when possible.
Struggled to get into the game from his position wide on the right and was taken off at half-time after seemingly suffering an injury. A night to forget.
An intelligent, probing presence who will have been disappointed with his final ball. Could have made more of the opportunities that he had in the final third.
Arsenal's best player in the first half, running at Bayern time and again, showing purpose, initiative and drive. Not as effective in the second period but still an encouraging night.
Seemed disinterested but then produced a stunning finish to bring Arsenal back into the tie, lashing home from an impossible angle.
Being a lone frontman against Bayern is a thankless task and Giroud lacks the pace to trouble the best defences. Never stopped trying but had little impact.
