Bayern Munich Thrash Barcelona 8-2 In Historic Champions League Encounter

Spanish giants Barcelona suffered a total embarrassment in the hands of German Champions Bayern Munich on Friday night.

The German side hit 8 past Barcelona in a thrilling Champions League win to book a spot in the semifinals of the tournament in Lisbon.

The match got off to a cracking start with Thomas Muller putting Bayern ahead early and David Alaba conceding an own goal to Barcelona minutes later to put the scoreline at 1-1 inside of the opening 10 minutes.

Bayern then went back in front just past the 20-minute mark when Ivan Perisic picked up a pass from Serge Gnabry and fired past Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

It was 4-1 in Bayern’s favour soon after as a rapid-fire few minutes saw Muller set up Gnabry with a lovely first-time pass for a goal before notching his second of the match at the near post from a Joshua Kimmich assist.

The German champions took the three-goal lead into the dressing room, with Barcelona reeling after an opening 45 minutes that saw them concede four in the opening half of a UCL knockout-round game for the first time in club history.

Luis Suarez looked to have given Barca a lifeline in the second half with an early goal, but Bayern hit right back when Alphonso Davies tip-toed down the endline and cut a pass back to Kimmich for an easy first time finish to make it 5-2.

Bayern scored their 6th goal through Robert Lewandowski, who headed home a cross from Barcelona loanee Philippe Coutinho.

Coutinho then scored a goal of his own minutes later and added a second before full-time to complete the Bundesliga champions’ 8-2 thrashing of Barcelona.

Hansi Flick’s side are the first to ever score eight goals in a Champions League game. Tonight’s result is Barcelona’s worst defeat in a Champions League match.
