FC Bayern München made giant strides towards a third UEFA Champions League final in four seasons with a memorable semi-final first-leg triumph against FC Barcelona.
The Bundesliga champions' record-breaking campaign reached fresh heights as Thomas Müller started and finished the scoring on a famous night in Munich. Mario Gomez and Arjen Robben added further goals to secure a landmark victory which inflicted a heaviest European away defeat on Barcelona and left the four-time trophy winners with a mountain to climb in next Wednesday's Camp Nou return.
We have been playing extraordinary football for the entire season now. Today's game was a perfect example of that.
Jupp Heynckes, Bayern coach
We know that the situation is difficult but as Barcelona we have to compete in the second leg and try to win. We will give it our all.
Jordi Roura, Barcelona assistant coach
