Dante keeps Arsenal at bay as Bayern reach Champions League Quarter Finals
A dominant and unsurprising Bayern Munich performance saw the defending champions into the quarter finals of this season's Champions League and the German side were aided by strong performances from Brazilian genes.
Dante proved to be a rock in defence as the game finished 1-1, an Arsenal win on the night becoming more of a threat as the game wore on, and despite picking up a booking, the ex-Juventude centre back proved why he will be in Luiz Felipe Scolari's World Cup squad when it is announced in a few weeks' time.
Coach Pep Guardiola took the opportunity to rest right back Rafinha for the game, preferring in this case to play Philipp Lahm in his natural position. With Brazilian Rafinha's World Cup place much less certain, he will be hoping that Guardiola doesn't revert to this system on a regualr basis.
