Barcelona were completely torn to shreds in the final 8 of the Champions League against the Bavarians because they were on the receiving end of an absolute 8-2 massacre that nobody saw coming.
The Champions of Germany scored 4 goals in the first half and 4 in the following half. Thomas Muller found the back of the net twice and Gnabry and Perisic scored one each before half time.
The 2nd half most probably saw Bayern Munich’s best goal of the night with Alphonso Davies producing an assist from the heavens with a stunning run that teed up Joshua Kimmich for a tap in. Without Robert Lewandowski scoring Bayern’s win is always incomplete, isn’t it? The Polish Striker wrote his name on the scoresheet after scoring an header that was almost ruled out for offside. Barcelona loanee Philippe Coutinho scored twice in less than 15 minutes after coming on as a substitute for Gnabry.
The Blaugrana scored just twice with David Alaba scoring the first one as an own goal and the second one came in from Luiz Suarez. The La Liga Giants just had 7 attempts on Goal.
The scoreline recalled Germany’s 7-1 win over Brazil in the 2014 World Cup, a game where Bayern coach Hansi Flick was on the bench as the national team’s assistant coach.
This is the first time in 15 years that an UCL semi final will neither feature Lionel Messi nor Cristiano Ronaldo. If reports are to be believed Barcelona have already sacked Quique Setein and Club is reportedly looking for replacement and Mauricio Pochettino is the favourite to take over the job at the Camp Nou.
Bayern Munich will play the winner between the Sky Blues of England Manchester City and Lyon in the semi-final on the 19th of August.
