Barcelona 0 Bayern Munich 7
Bayern Munich not only booked their place in the 2013 Champions League final in the Nou Camp, they also thrashed Barcelona in their own back yard.
May 1st, 2013
Barca needed to score at least four goals to overturn a hefty first leg deficit although the Catalan side rarely looked as though they were going to achieve that total, with Jupp Heynckes’ team having bossed the second leg and they ended up winning by an astonishing 7-0 aggregate scoreline.
With the second leg goalless at half-time, Arjen Robben popped up in the 48th minute to put his Bayern team into the ascendancy, while Gerard Pique capped another miserable night in the heart of the Barca defence by turning the ball into his own net.
The scoreline was merely academic by the time that Thomas Muller scored a third goal for the Bavarian side who will now go through to play Borussia Dortmund in an all-German final, with Borussia Dortmund having beaten Real Madrid in the other semi-final.
Many will be asking questions about where this Barca side go next after such a poor result and their former coach Pep Guardiola will take charge of Bayern Munich next term, with little in the way of fine tuning required to keep this team in the right direction.
