Leandro Trossard Rescues Four Teammates as Harry Kane Scores in Draw against Bayern with Arsenal

Arsenal’s Champions League fate will be decided in Germany next weekend after Mikel Arteta’s side drew 2-2 with Bayern Munich in an enthralling second leg. Leandro Trossard netted an equaliser in the second half after Harry Kane’s penalty put the visitors ahead, with Bukayo Saka being controversially denied a penalty deep in added time.

Arsenal introduced Trossard and Gabriel Jesus, who ensured a 2-2 scoreline and avoided a Bayern advantage for the next week’s match. Harry Kane’s penalty and controversially denied penalty call against Arsenal amid penalty controversy is something familiar to the team.

Kane’s impact on his return to north London was evident, as he scored the penalty. However, Arsenal felt they should have had a penalty of their own that was waved away by the referee.

The centre-backs Gabriel and William Saliba, who have excelled in the Premier League, made uncharacteristic errors on the biggest stage, allowing Bayern to break and score. Additionally, Arsenal’s left-hand side faced struggles, which led to Kiwior being substituted at half-time.

Jorginho also struggled, and Bayern found it too easy to counter-attack. Mikel Arteta’s changes to the game helped turn the game in his side’s favor.

The introduction of Trossard and Gabriel Jesus provided a much-needed boost to Arsenal’s attack, and Arteta prefers his wingers to collect the ball as they are advancing inside, in a dynamic wide position.
