UEFA Champions League: Bayern, Galacticos Advance To Quarterfinals

The Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League opened its' second half with two Tuesday contests.

At Naples, Italy:

Sergio Ramos (51'), Dries Mertens (OG-57'), and Alvaro Morata (90'+1) each scored a goal in the second half as Real Madrid defeated Napoli 3-1 on the road in game two and finished off the Italian club 6-2 on aggregate.  Galacticos head coach Zinedine Zidane is shown here and seems to be pleased with what was going on.

At London:

Arturo Vidal scored twice (80'+85') as Bayern Munich used a five-goal second half in demolishing Arsenal 5-1 on the road in game two and close out their two-match fist-beating of the Gunners, 10-2 on aggregate.  'Twas a less than enjoyable two games for the Gunners' Alexis Sanchez and manager Arsene Wenger.
