...
THERE WILL BE PENALTIES!!! OH WOW!
...
PEEP! PEEP! 

THE  LAST KICK OF THE GAME IS IN AN EQUALISER! 
...
OOOO THAT WAS A LOVELY BALL! AARON RAMSEY SWEEPS PAST BERNAT WITH A SUPERB RUN BEFORE HE STANDS ONE IN THAT ALEX IWOBI MEETS WITH A SUPERB HEADER (AT THE END OF A LOVELY RUN) 
...
93' GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAL! IWOBI!!!!!!!!!!!
...
92' Theo Walcott offside... as my boss Amartojit Basu just put it - Story of his life. *Sigh*
...
91' Iwobi does well to stop a lovely little twinkling Borsch run and Arsenal look they'll see this half through: FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON.. WHY, GOOD LORD, WHY!
...
90' Only for Coman to intercept and start another sweeping Bayern passing game. 
...
89' The corner is nothing special, and Arsenal move forward... 
...
88' Wintzheimer is holding up play rather well... and Sanches finds his old self within himself with a lovely little scoop that sets Bernat off. The left back unselfishly tries to play it back to Wintzheimer but Monreal gets a lanky leg in. The veteran has been excellent today
...
85' Corner for Bayern as Nelson sweeps in with an immaculate tackle... the corner is rubbish but the Bavarians come rampaging forward and Bernat plays in Alaba (who finds himself as CF) and tries a twirly back-heel that connects with naught but fresh air. 
...
84' Yellow for Willock for tripping up Friedl... from the corner, Ramsey does well to clear it out for just a throw-in! 
...
83' Felix Gotze tries to play in Wintzheimer but Cohen Bramall, factory worker a year ago (love these fairy tale stories), steps into ensure Martinez isn't called into play yet. 
...
81' Friedl runs at Niles and does well to win a throw in that brings a host of Bayern players forward; before they embark on their pass-pass-pass routine
...
80' OOOO THEO WALCOTT! The Englishman who fancies himself on the left wing at the moment screams past the defence and curls the ball into young Fruchtil's gloves
...
79' Sanches release Wintzheimer on the break, but the young man, just 17, hasn't bent his run enough and it's offside. Good call, that
...
78' Ramsey swaggers through three challenges before he runs into the massive frame of Sanches... and Bayern's juniors do what their seniuirs were doing so casually all day - pass it around with quiet nonchalance
...
77' After a short drinks break to cool everyone in the Chinese heat the game is away... THE UNIDENTIFIED PLAYER IS RIBERY - YES! - and the veteran makes way after a superb performance
...
74' Senior statesman Theo Walcott is having a bit of trouble playing football - he has given the ball away more than he's actually completed passes, 

Meanwhile, Ancelotti makes a rash of subs as  FRIEDL, DORCH, FELIX GOTZE (MARIO's BROTHER) are taken for Tolisso, Rafinha and another as yet unidentified player... unidentified 'cos COME ON HOW MANY SUBSTITUTIONS CAN A MAN KEEP TRACK OF! AAAARGH!
...
73' Welbeck is taken of Nketiah... this is Arsenal U-20 at the moment!
...
72' Ramsey sends Renato Sanches for a cuppa with a superb turn in the centre of the park - the Portuguese youngster looks untterly bereft of confidence, and it's quite understandable isn't it
...
71' GOALKEEPER CHANGE! EMILIANO MARTINEZ ON to replace PETR CECH
...
70' The freekick is useless, but Nelson tries to keep the ball alive with some more tricky footwork... Bayern are too strong, though
...
69' Nelson catches Pantovic out with a lovely little shuffle of his feet and Arsenal have a decent chance with a free kick that the youngster himself stands over
...
68' Bayern rampage forward and it's a corner that proves to be nothing other than a routine catch for Cech.... 
...
66' Iwobi is playing well here and he passes it onto Ramsey who tries to bully his way -rugby style - through the Bayern defense, but nothing doing!
...
65' From the freekick it's almost a Bayern chance! But Cech wins the race against Ribery and heads it clear somewhere near the halfway line. Ancelotti throws on his youngsters - Milos Pantovic for James; Manuel Wintzheimer for Lewandowski, the young lad is quite the striker and has scored bundles of goals for Bayern B
...
63' OH! OH! OH! ALEX IWOBI PLUCKS THE BALL OUT OF THIN AIR WITH A LOVELY TOUCH BEFORE LAYING IT OFF TO WELBECK, BUT THE STRIKER CANT FINISH - IWOBI RESCUES THE MOVE WITH A  LOVELY NUTMEG HIS UNCLE WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD TO PULL OFF IN HIS HEYDAY.... and it's a foul for Arsenal at the edge of the box
...
61' Arsenal attempt to up the tempo but Walcott's ball is to the exact point Brammall had been at five seconds ago... Wenger takes the break the throw-in offers by throwing on Aaron Ramsey to replace Granit Xhaka!
...
59' The free kick peters out harmlessly... as Alaba's left footed curler doesn't trouble Cech all that much
...
58' OUCH! ELNENY SMASHES INTO TOLISSO - THE FRENCH MIDFIELDER OVEREXTENDED HIMSELF AND ELNENY HAD EYES ONLY FOR THE BALL... I can understand why the ref saw it as a foul Bayern's way, though
...
57' The Arsenal youngsters are putting up a fight here it has to be said - and have done rather well to keep Bayern at bay... Bernat tries to change all that by running at Miles, but he's forced inside. The move ends when a Sanches snapshot bounces harmlessly into Cech's waiting arms
...
54' OUCH! RIBERY RACES PAST NILES BUT THE YOUNGSTER DOES SUPREMELY WELL TO PUT IN A TACKLE AND TAKE OUT BALL AND MAN! THe Frenchman seems in a spot of pain there
...
52' Walcott's setpiece smacks Sanches' Predator-esque noggin' straight-on, and then one more baffling decision goes against the Gunners as Bayern get a free kick that seemed destined to go against him
...
51' Xhaka does well to draw a foul from young Sanches and Walcott and Brammall stand over it. Oh, and Willock is also on - these friendlies are a nightmare if you want to keep up with substitutions
...
50' Bramall gets pulled up by Cohen Bramall and it's a free kick for Bayern - the Germans look like they are going for the kill here.... but Ribery falls over Nelsen and the ref asks him to get off his backside. 
...
48' Coman skins past Brammall and Lewandowski attempts no shot as he lets it run through to James Rodriguez, whose shot is smothered by Cech for a corner
...
47' Look's like Arsene's gone back to a good old back-four; Iwobi's through ball goes straight to Fruchtil. 
...
46' Ries Nelsen runs at Bernat and does well to win a throw-in, from which Iwobi tries a sprawling crossfield ball that finds naught but Rafinha 
...
PEEP! PEEP! WE'RE OFF AGAIN!

SUBSTITUTIONS ACROSS THE BOARD - KINGSLEY COMAN, FRUCHTIL and RENATO SANCHES FOR MULLER, STARKE AND MARTINEZ; Arsenal bring on  COHEN BRAMALL, THEO WALCOTT and JAY-JAY OKOCHA'S NEPHEW ON - COQUELIN, OZIL, LACAZETTE, BIELIK out
...
PEEP! HALFTIME! 1-0 Bayern Munich and the Germans are looking physically fitter, and by some margin.
