UEFA Champions League: Real Madrid beat Napoli, Bayern Munich crash Arsenal

Arsenal suffered a humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Allianz Arena.

The English side reached half time on level terms, but they were blown away during the second 45 minutes in Germany and now face the prospect of exiting the tournament at the second-round stage for the seventh successive year.

Holders Real Madrid came from behind to record a 3-1 win over Italian outfit Napoli in the first leg of their last-16 clash in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Lorenzo Insigne sent the visitors into an eighth-minute lead at the Bernabeu, but goals from Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Casemiro ensured that Zinedine Zidane’s side would take a two-goal lead into the second leg in Naples on March 7 as they bid to make the quarter-finals once again.
