There were errors from both sides early in the first half but soon, Bayern started to take advantage of Barcelona's mistakes as the floodgates opened.
Thomas Muller - making his 113th Champions League appearance - scored inside four minutes, but it was soon cancelled out by a freak own goal from David Alaba (7). The first-half floodgates then opened as Ivan Perisic (22), Serge Gnabry (28) and Muller (31) netted in quick succession.


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.

They did not even stop after scoring their fifth, with Lewandowski heading home late on to make it 6-2 thanks to an assist from on-loan Philippe Coutinho, who then netted the seventh and eighth against his employers.

Lewandowski now heads not only the competition's goal charts, with 13, but has also managed five assists, more than anyone else in the current edition.

Barcelona’s attempt to bring the Champions League back to Camp Nou after a five-year absence ended in humiliation on Friday, as Bayern Munich trounced them 8-2 in the quarter-final.

This was a complete humbling for one of the biggest clubs in world football.

No other side left in the Champions League has won the competition even once. Bayern have the history, the pedigree and this season, they have the team unity to go all the way for the first time since 2013.

They will face Manchester City or Lyon in the last four and must surely back themselves to clinch a treble now. At Barca, Quique Setien’s future looks extremely uncertain with reports suggesting his sack could be announced soon.
