Arsenal gained a respectable 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 tie last night, but went out of the competition 3-1 on aggregate. The two team’s substitute benches showed the difference in quality between the teams.


Arsenal could only name six substitutes, as the Gunners originally named young Japanese attacking midfielder Ryo Miyaichi on the bench, but it turned out that the rookie was ineligible for the Champions League.

The Gunners bench really did not compare to their opponents. The Gunners bench contained two teenagers, one of whom had only ever made one senior appearance for the men from north London.
