The Gunners were torn apart by Bayern as they put five past Arsene Wenger's men, with the visitors reaching an unwanted milestone in the process

Arsenal have become the first English team to concede 200 goals in the Champions League as they crumbled to a 5-1 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

The Gunners were ripped to shreds by Carlo Ancelotti's side despite being level at half-time in the Allianz Arena.

Arjen Robben gave Bayern the lead as he scored a trademark curling effort with his left foot although Alexis Sanchez struck after 30 minutes to give Arsene Wenger's men hope.

A complete capitulation in the second half, however, saw the visitors concede four without reply, with Thomas Muller rounding off the night after a mistake from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The result means the north Londoners need something of a minor miracle to advance, with it looking increasingly like Arsenal will be dumped out of the competition at the last 16 stage for the seventh season in a row.

And, to rub salt into the wound, the Gunners have now become the first English side to have shipped 200 goals in Europe's premier club competition.
