Bayern Munich thrashed Barcelona 8-2 in their Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon.

Thomas Muller opened the scoring after four minutes, only for Barcelona to equalise following David Alaba’s own goal.

However, after that the Bundesliga champions completely took the game away from the La Liga outfit.

It was certainly salt on the wounds of the Catalan giants, who had a player who is still a part of their roster in the form of Philippe Coutinho net a late brace and assist Robert Lewandowski’s goal.
Ivan Perisic, Serge Gnabry, and Joshua Kimmich were the other Munich players on the scoresheet, as the La Liga outfit only had a late Luis Suarez consolation goal to their name.

Here’s some of the best Twitter reactions to a jaw-dropping night at the Estádio da Luz.


Thomas Muller’s contributions on the night will be the ones to laud as he netted two goals and assisted another one.

The Bavarians will move on to face either Man City or Lyon in the semi-final, with Hans-Dieter Flick’s side certainly fancying themselves as potential champions now.

Meanwhile, according to Italian journalist  Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona have decided to sack Quique Setien following the Catalian giants’ terrible defeat, which wouldn’t come as a surprise to many given the broader state of their season as well.

For Barca, it will be back to the drawing board with a defeat this big while Bayern Munich have a lot of hope ahead of them.
