MUNICH---Bayern Munich answered
its critics with a comprehensive 5-1
rout of Arsenal in the first leg of
their Champions League clash to
put one foot in the quarter-finals
Thiago Alcantara struck twice in a
superb performance, while Arjen Rob-
ben, Robert Lewandowski and substi-
tute Thomas Mueller scored the other
goals. Arsenal now faces what seems
a near-impossible task in the second
leg of the Round of 16 on March 7, de-
spite a first-half equalizer from Alexis
Bayern had been unconvincing in
its five games since the winter break,
looking tired and lacking the domi-
nance it displayed at the start of the
season. But the home side soon took
control of the game.
There was little Arsenal goalkeeper
David Ospina could do to stop Robben
from opening the scoring in the 11th
minute. Given too much space, the
Dutchman cut inside as he's done so
often before and let fly with a shot that
went in off the underside of the bar.
Bayern dominated and it looked only
a matter of time before the home side
would add to its tally. Instead, Arsenal
was given a lifeline when Lewandowski
took down Arsenal captain Laurent
Koscielny and the referee awarded
the penalty before the half-hour mark.

Bayern Munich routs Arsenal 5-1
Amid deafening whistles from
the home fans, Manuel Neuer
saved Sanchez' weak spot kick
and Sanchez then missed the
rebound but the Chilean cut the
Bayern fans' cheers short when he
prodded in at the third attempt.
Suddenly the momentum was
with Arsenal. Granit Xhaka should
have scored when he shot straight
at Neuer, and Mesut Ozil might
have made it 2-1 at the break, only
for Neuer to come to Bayern's res-
But it was all Bayern for the
second half, after Arsenal lost
central defender Koscielny in the
Robben and Philipp Lahm com-
bined on the right ring, the latter
producing an inviting cross for
Lewandowski to rise above two
defenders and head inside the
right post in the 53rd.
The Poland striker produced a
brilliant back-heeled flick to send
Thiago through to score another
three minutes later.
Bayern had a host of chanc-
es thereafter, first through Le-
wandowski, who struck the cross-
bar after rounding the 'keeper,
then through Robben, who was
blocked by Kieran Gibbs, illegally
according to the Bayern players,
who demanded a penalty.
The claims were forgotten when
Thiago grabbed his second, min-
utes later, with a deflected shot
after a corner, before Mueller
completed the rout two minutes
after he came on in the 86th.
Real Madrid rallies
to beat Napoli 3-1
In Madrid, defending champion
Real Madrid recovered after con-
ceding a stunning early goal to beat
Napoli 3-1 and stay on track for its
seventh straight appearance in the
Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and
Casemiro all scored for Madrid
after Lorenzo Insigne's extraor-
dinary goal for Napoli less than
10 minutes into the Round of 16
first-leg match at Santiago Bern-
The Italian forward struck a
shot from way outside the area,
catching Madrid goalkeeper Keylor
Navas out of position.
Playing in the last 16 for only
the second time, Napoli was one
game short of matching its un-
beaten record of 19 matches in
Madrid, which won its 11th
Champions League title last sea-
son, extended its streak without a
home loss in the European com-
petition to 12 matches.
The return match against Napoli
is on March 7 in Italy.
With former great Diego
Maradona supporting from the
tribunes, and nearly 5,000 fans
loudly cheering from the stands,
Napoli made an ideal start with
Insigne opening the scoring with
his superb long-range strike in the
He received a nice through-ball
from captain Marek Hamsik and
struck a first-time shot from about
30 meters (yards) out to catch Na-
vas off-guard. The ball bounced
once before hitting the net near
the far post as Navas desperately
tried to recover.
Benzema leveled 10 minutes
later with a header after a cross
by Dani Carvajal from the right
flank, scoring his first goal in six
games. The French striker, Ma-
drid's top scorer in this season's
Champions League with five goals,
almost added another in a break-
away just before halftime, but his
attempt struck the post.
Kroos put Madrid ahead from
just inside the area in the 49th
minute after Cristiano Ronaldo
cleared a defender to set up the
German midfielder. Casemiro
sealed the victory with his per-
fectly struck volley from outside
the area in the 54th, hitting the

offside in the 80th. (AP)
