Despite replays indicating that Manuel Neuer fouled Saka inside the box, the on-field referee opted not to award Arsenal a penalty during stoppage time.

Arsenal players, including Saka, protested vehemently, but the referee's decision remained unchanged, leaving the Gunners feeling aggrieved.

Saka, who had earlier scored a brilliant goal to give Arsenal the lead in the quarter-final game, approached the referee in dismay, questioning the call that VAR did not review.

After Saka's early goal, Bayern leveled the score minutes later through Serge Gnabry.

Harry Kane then put the visitors ahead with a penalty, but Arsenal's hopes were kept alive by Leandro Trossard's clever equalizer.
