Bayern into Champions League quarter-finals

10:28 am on 13 March 2014

Holders Bayern Munich have qualified for the quarter-finals of European football's elite Champions League after a 3-1 aggregate win over Arsenal.

The Londoners did end Munich's long winning streak with a 1-1 draw in the second leg in Germany, but it wasn't enough to stop the Bavarians moving on.

Bastian Schweinsteiger put Bayern ahead in the 55th minute and Lukas Podolski levelled the scores five minutes later.

Bayern had won 13 games in a row in all competitions since a 3-2 home defeat by Manchester City in the Champions League in December.

In the day's other last-16 tie, Spanish side Atletico Madrid beat AC Milan 4-1 to send the seven-times winners crashing out 5-1 on aggregate.

Milan's exit means there will be no Italian side in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2009.
