Bayern Munich are only one match away from seeking the Champions League trophy following an unequivocal 8-2 win against an innocuous Barcelona side in the quarterfinals. They will face off the winner of Manchester City and Lyon for that very opportunity.
This match was a huge disappointment for the Catalans as Robert Lewandowski and Hansi Flick swept away the game on their side.
Bayern Munich created history as they became the first team to score eight goals in a Champions League knockout match with their 8-2 annihilation of Barcelona on Friday.
The first five goals were scored before the referee blew the whistle for the end of the first half. The crowd felt the energizing opening to this game. Thomas Muller got one for his side early, and Barcelona had the option to equalize thanks to an absolute howler of an own goal from David Alaba. But that was the last bit of brilliance in the first half that would favor the La Liga side. A collection of three goals from Bayern Munich quickly followed.
It didn’t get any better in the second half as Bayern seemed to just toy with their prey in the final 45 minutes. Though Luis Suarez was able to pull one back, the German squad responded with four more goals of their own to dig their opponents deeper and deeper into the ground.
