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.

    The final whistle is blown.
    Bayern cruise through to the final with an outstanding performance over two legs. Few people thought anything could match last week's performance in 4-0 win, but this outing pushes it close. Never troubled by the hosts, the Bavarians made it look simple. We are set for a brilliant all-German final.

    Bayern are rubbing salt into the wounds. Franck Ribéry cruises past Alex Song on the left and stands up a perfect cross to the back post, where the forward gets above Marc Bartra and Adriano to thump a header past Víctor Valdés.
