It leaves them facing elimination in the first knockout round for a seventh successive season.

“It’s difficult to explain,” Wenger told BT Sport.

“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.
