Second-half goals by Mario Mandžukić and Claudio Pizarro enabled FC Bayern München to defeat Juventus 2-0 for the second time in eight days and reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
The German title winners dealt capably with the threat of a willing Juventus side in the first half, and soon after Arjen Robben struck a post in the second, Mandžukić headed in from close range on 64 minutes to end any prospect of an unlikely quarter-final comeback.
Nobody likes to lose, but you have to admit it when you face a team that is stronger than you. They have played in two finals in the last three years, so we knew there was a big gap between them and us.
Antonio Conte, Juventus coach
The first 20 minutes we lost possession often and weren't at our best going forward. We took control of the match slowly and improved a lot in the second half. In the end we fully deserved to win.
