The top German team in the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich, destroyed the Spanish giants, Barcelona, in last night’s Semi Final encounter in the Champions League. The German kings scored a whopping 4 goals against the leaders of the Spanish league.
Thomas Müller was the first to break the deadlock in the 25th minute with a headed goal that the Spanish keeper couldn’t keep out of his own net. The goal came courtesy of Arjen Robben’s lofted cross into the box, with Dante heading the ball back across the goal ready for Müller to slot home.
Bayern Munich completely outclassed Barcelona for the whole game, even though Barcelona had most of the possession 55% to 45%. Munich also dominated the shot statistics, Barcelona couldn’t get close to the Munich goal all evening.
The Allianz arena was close to its full capacity with most of the spectators rooting for Bayern Munich. Singing and chanting was the norm all evening and the fans were behind the German’s for the 90 minutes.
The second goal of the game came in the second half, with the 20 year old, Mario Gomez scoring in the 49th minute to put the German’s two goals ahead. Arjen Robben again supplied a vital ball into the box from a corner kick that was calmly headed down by Thomas Müller. Gomez was waiting unmarked and neatly swept the ball into the back of the net.
The third goal was the icing on the cake for Bayern Munich and came shortly after a Barcelona attack. The build-up was sublime, Franck Ribery intercepted the ball on the edge of his own box and ran to the other end of the field. The ball kindly fell to the feet of Arjen Robben, opened up his body and slotted the ball inside the far post.
Barcelona was seeking frantically for a goal but could not work anything. Barcelona’s star player Lionel Messi was quiet all night not even making it onto the score sheet, even though the Argentine international has already scored 43 goals this season for Barcelona in La Liga. The closest Barcelona came to a goal was in the 75th minute when Andres Iniesta was fouled outside the area. A great free kick was curled into the box by Xavi, superb control by Bartra bought the ball down only for him to poke his shot way over the bar in an unmarked position.
Thomas Müller then grabbed his second goal of the evening in the 81st minute. The cross came courtesy of David Alaba who fed the ball to Müller, which he calmly tapped away sealing the victory for Bayern Munich.
Borussia Dortmund take on Real Madrid this evening. There could be another shock with tonights encounter.
