SPORT [UCL]: Bayern shows Barca what TRASHING means -Match Report

Just as the Night was getting cold and usual for the atmosphere of a 'Barca Dominated Game' The Bavarians outclassed their Catalan opponents in a manner rarely seen, and with a four-goal advantage to take into the second leg, are surely favorites for a Wembley place (just like that!!!)

I'm still recovering from the shock being a 'Messi Freak' and yeah, once I heard the scoreline, the first question I asked was: "didn't Messi Play?" because I know, nights like this, the Lad could even defend so long his Legs touch the Ball. (How wrong I was!)

Bayern Munich took a massive step towards the Champions League final with an incredible 4-0 thrashing of Barcelona in the first leg of their last-four clash at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday.

On the same day that they stunned the football world by capturing Mario Gotze from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, the Bavarian giants again reminded everyone that they are a force to be reckoned with by playing the toothless Blaugrana off the pitch.

Thomas Muller opened the scoring with a close-range header, and put the second on a plate for Mario Gomez minutes into the second half.

Muller would controversially play a role in Arjen Robben's goal after appearing to foul Jordi Alba off the ball, before tapping in the fourth himself with eight minutes remaining to round off the biggest ever margin of victory in a Champions League semi-final.

Gomez replaced the suspended Mario Mandzukic up front for the hosts, while for the visitors, Marc Bartra partnered Gerard Pique in defence with Carles Puyol and Javier Mascherano injured.

Bayern could have been ahead as early as the fourth minute. Robben exchanged passes with Gomez, and it took the outstretched legs of Victor Valdes to deny the Dutch winger from point-blank range.

Barca were winning the possession battle, but it was the Bavarian side who controlled the opening exchanges. Javi Martinez’s tumble in the box was correctly ignored by
the referee, who was forced into a bigger no-call when Philipp Lahm’s shot struck Pique’s elbow.

The Barca defender headed wide at the other end from a corner, but it was an isolated scare from the blunted Catalans, and with 25 minutes on the clock, Bayern made their superiority count.

A corner was worked to Robben, whose cross was flicked on by Dante, and Muller was first to the ball, sneaking a header past Valdes at the near post.

But Dante had to be alert to prevent a quick response from Barca, poking away Dani Alves’ cross at full stretch from the unmarked Lionel Messi, in a dangerous position where an own-goal could have easily occurred.

Gomez then picked up the first yellow card of the game for barging into Messi, and he was quickly followed into the book by
Bartra and Martinez for challenges on Muller and Andres Iniesta either side of the interval.

But any hopes that Barca had for the half-time break to revitalize them were dashed only four minutes after the restart, when Bayern exposed their soft centre once again to go two goals ahead.

Just like the first goal, Robben’s delivery was met by a Bayern head, with Muller guiding the ball towards the goal line, where Gomez was waiting to gleefully bundle the ball home, albeit from an unnoticed offside position.

The Bundesliga side were simply dominating, and the match threatened to get ugly very fast for Barca had Muller and Franck
Ribery been more accurate when presented with the chance to pick their spot from great shooting positions.

But the third goal was always on the cards, and it duly arrived with 17 minutes remaining, albeit in contentious circumstances. Muller’s off-the-ball block on Alba went unheeded, and with the full-back out of the way, Robben curled
sublimely into the far corner.

And in the 82nd minute, it was 4-0. David Alaba’s overlapping run down the left ended with a low cross into the six-yard area, where Muller was waiting to turn into the
back of the net to leave the second leg at Camp Nou as little more than a formality, and finish off an epic 24 hours for Bayern.
