Bayern Munich are now just one match away from competing for the Champions League trophy following a decisive 8-2 thrash of shambolic Barcelona side in the quarterfinals in a match that will raise questions about Lionel Messi’s future in Spain. They will face off the winner of Manchester City and Lyon for that very opportunity.
Five of the total 10 goals scored in this match were put into the back of the net in the first half of the game.
Thomas Muller netted one for his side early, and Barcelona were able to equalize thanks to an absolute howler of an own goal from David Alaba. But that was the last flash of intelligence in the first half that would favour the La Liga giant. A volley of three goals from Bayern Munich quickly followed.
The second half wasn’t any better for the Spanish side as Bayern literally toyed with their prey. Even though Luiz Suarez was able to pull one back, the German squad responded hard with four more goals of their own to dig their opponents deeper and deeper into the ground.
