Munich Cruise Past Barca

Bayern Munich confirmed their dominance over Barcelona as they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in their second leg Champions League semifinal match at Camp Nou on Wednesday night, and consequently winning the two legged tie a staggering 7-0 on aggregate.

Munich will now contest a third Champions League final in four years after superb display from Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery for the German side.

Leading 4-0 from the first leg, Bayern shut the hosts out in the first 45 before Robben handed them the lead on the night four minutes into the second half with a marvellous curling shot past Victor Valdes.

Robben drove into the right-hand side of the box and cut inside onto his stronger left foot, past a stranded Adriano, before curling the ball into the net, 1-0.

Barca tried gamely to get back into the match but a comical own-goal from Gerard Pique put Bayern out of sight in the 72nd minute after the defender fired a Ribery cross into his own net, 2-0.

Ribery was then at it again four minutes later, this time his pin-point cross being head home by Thomas Mueller to make it 3-0.

The result – Barcelona’s heaviest aggregate defeat in Europe – means it will be an all-German final at Wembley Stadium on May 25, with Borussia Dortmund having seen off Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
