FC Bayern München enjoyed an exceptional night in an already glorious history with a comprehensive victory at FC Barcelona, reaching a second consecutive UEFA Champions League final and setting up an all-German affair against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on 25 May.
With the Bundesliga champions already 4-0 up from the first leg, second-half goals from Arjen Robben and Thomas Müller either side of a Gerard Piqué own goal, completed the biggest aggregate win in a UEFA Champions League semi-final. It was also Barcelona's heaviest aggregate defeat in UEFA competition, and the first time the Catalan club had lost both legs of a European tie since March 1987. Bayern deserved every accolade that came their way.
We have to congratulate Bayern, they are in extraordinary form. They are worthy finalists. They dominate all aspects of the game right now.
Xavi Hernández, Barcelona midfielder
We played well. My team understood our tactical approach very well and they executed it perfectly. We will reflect on what we achieved tonight.
