The first week of the Champions League round of 16 saw 15 goals scored. The problem for Barcelona and Arsenal was that nine of them were scored against them.
In the most shocking match of the four first legs, Paris Saint-Germain dominated Barca in a thorough 4-0 victory at the Parc des Princes. In the least surprising outcome, Bayern Munich steamrolled the Gunners in a 5-1 destruction that could have a lasting impact on Arsene Wenger’s deeply troubled side – and most likely the manager’s future with Arsenal.
