​Arsenal fans are frantically trying to sell their tickets for their second-leg fixture against German champions Bayern Munich, following a humbling 5-1 Champions League round of 16 loss at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday night.

The Gunners could not withstand Bayern's attack during the encounter, and now have little chance of progressing to the next round.


Former Chelsea man Arjen Robben started things off with an early goal. Thiago chipped in with a brace, while Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller also got on the score-sheet to pile on the embarrassment.

With the tie well-nigh done and dusted, fans can't be blamed for losing confidence in the team's chances of moving on. 

They are now rushing to sell their matchday tickets for the clash, which takes place on March 7. And thousands of the aforementioned have become available on the ​club's official ticket exchange.

There were no tickets up for grabs prior to the 5-1 rout, but since then, several blocks of seating have become available, with the Mirror reporting that the Emirates Stadium now boasts significant sections of 'yellow' availableseats on the club's website.

Arsene Wenger had a hard time explaining the loss in his post-match interview, but admitted that his team collapsed after losing France defender Laurent Koscielny.

"It's difficult to explain," he said to BT Sport.

Arsenal FC - Press Conference

"Just before half-time we had two good chances to score. We came back and played well.

"In the second half we lost Koscielny very quickly - he came off at 1-1 - and finally we collapsed. Bayern are a better team than us as well.

"The third goal was a killer for our players because after that we had no response."
