Arsenal bowed out of the Champions League despite a spirited 1-1 draw against holders Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.  It was always going to be a tall order for Arsene Wenger's men after losing the first leg of their last-16 tie 2-0 in London last month. And so it proved, despite a resilient effort from the Barclays Premier League side, who equalised through Lukas Podolski having fallen behind to Bastian Schweinsteiger's close-range effort early in the second half. There was late drama when Lukasz Fabianski saved a stoppage-time penalty from Thomas Muller for what looked a soft decision for a challenge by Laurent Koscielny on Arjen Robben. However, unlike previous campaigns all is not yet lost for the Gunners this season, as they head to Tottenham on Sunday looking to get themselves back in the title race and can look ahead to an FA Cup semi-final against Wigan at Wembley in April.

Diego Costa scored twice as Atletico Madrid sealed a spot in the quarter-finals for the first time in 17 years with an impressive 4-1 victory over AC Milan at the Vicente Calderon. Costa, whose late header earned Atletico a 1-0 first-leg win at San Siro, acrobatically put the Spanish side ahead with the first chance of Tuesday's last-16 second leg but former Real Madrid star Kaka headed Milan level. Arda Turan's deflected strike made it 2-1 to Atletico before the break, and then second-half goals from Raul Garcia and Costa sealed a deserved 5-1 aggregate victory for the Spanish side
