Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger, has expressed confidence that they can still qualify for the Champions League Round Of 16 despite losing 5-1 to Bayern Munich .

Goals from Robert Lewandoski, David Alaba, Arjen Robben and Thomas Mueller (brace), secured the emphatic win for the Bundesliga champions.

In his post-match conference, Wenger who  hailed Bayern for their display, berated his team for their poor defending.

"There is still a chance to qualify," he said. "It's a small chance but there is still a real one, " Wenger said.

"You have to give credit to Bayern for their quality but we made things easy for them. We were extremely poor defensively."

“We never looked like a team who recently played like a unit.”

“I feel overall it is a very disappointing performance. You have to congratulate Bayern, they were by far the better team tonight.”

In the group's other game, Olympiakos came from behind to defeat Dinamo Zagreb 2-1 and strengthen their chance of progressing into the next round.
