Bayern Munich Smash Barcelona 8-2 To Reach UEFA Champions League S/Finals


LISBON - Bayern Munich sent out an emphatic and ominous message to their Champions League rivals with an absolute demolition of fellow European heavyweights, Barcelona in a gloriously chaotic and utterly one-sided quarter-final tie in Lisbon.

Bayern progressed to the semifinal stage of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Barcelona 8-2 on Friday at the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon.

Despite taking an early lead through Thomas Muller, Bayern conceded within the seventh minute through a David Alaba own goal. By the 31st minute, they were leading the Catalan club by 4-1 after goals in quick succession from Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry and Muller again. 

In the second half, although Luis Suarez cut the deficit a bit with a left-footed finish, Bayern inflicted pain on Barcelona again. 

Joshua Kimmich and Robert Lewandowski scored from inside the box, before Philippe Coutinho scored two in the final minutes of the game.

Bayern Munich are the first team to score eight goals in a Champions League knockout match.

By that logic, Barcelona are the first to concede eight.

Barca eliminated in disgrace for the fourth successive season. They've suffered atrocious beatings in every in individual games in every one: 2017 - 3-0 to Juventus, 2018 - 3-0 to Roma, 2019 - 4-0 to Liverpool, 2020 - 8-2 to Bayern.
