Arsenal produced one of the results of the season by beating Bayern Munich 2-0 earlier this morning, keeping their Champions League hopes alive.
Both keepers, Manuel Neuer and Petr Cech produced world class saves to keep their team in tact, but Neuer turned hero to villain when he misjudged Santi Cazorla’s free kick to allow Oliver Giroud to nick in a header with 20 minutes to play.
Things got worse for Bayern in the final seconds as Mesut Ozil found himself unmarked at far post and tapped home the deciding goal.
Right back Hector Bellerin, however, had a night to forget as he was tormented by Brazilian winger Douglas Costa throughout the match, proved by this amazing piece of skill that left Bellerin stranded!
Twitter had their own take on Costa’s brilliance.
Douglas Costa has got Bellerin hollerin' to get off.

Douglas Costa sent Bellerin back to Barcelona.

Costa wants Bellerin's soul by the end of the 90. Send him to the same hospital as Seamus Coleman

Fortunately, Bellerin and Co. had the last laugh as he improved in the second half, and even registered an assist for Ozil’s goal.
How is Bellerin sprinting like this in the 94th minute? Incredible play from him. pic.twitter.com/Ufdt2YAQPK
