Bayern Munich Humiliates FC Barcelona In An Emphatic 8 – 2 Win In Champions League

All eyes were set on Portugal today as two powerhouses of European football, FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich met in what was called the clash of the titans.

A Champions League Quarter Final fixture between these two footballing giants was the perfect gift for football fans across the globe after a long break away from Europe’s elite club football competition.

However expectations were not met as the match expected to be highly competitive turned out to be a one-sided affair as Bayern Munich put Barcelona to the sword in an 8 – 2 win with both halves ending 4 – 1 in Bayern’s favour.

It took just three minutes and four seconds for Bayern to break the deadlock through a fantastic team move where Robert Lewandowski combined with Thomas Muller to find the net.

Barcelona went level through an awful own goal from David Alaba minutes later before Barcelona spurned a few good chances to go ahead.

After that, however, the Germans dominated the first-half. By the 31st minute, Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry and Muller’s second goal had Bayern Munich leading 4-1 and Hansi Flick’s men were beginning to think about a potential semi-final with Manchester City.

Despite Luis Suarez netting after half-time, Joshua Kimmich restored the three-goal advantage following an incredible dribble from teenage full-back Alphonso Davies, which was Bayern’s 152nd goal of the season – a new club record, surpassing Jupp Heynckes’ 151 in their treble-winning season and Pep Guardiola’s 150 in his debut season in charge at the Allianz Arena.
