Bayern hit five to progress in style

FC Bayern München 5-1 Aberdeen FC (agg: 7-3) Bayern cruised into the Round of 16 after Lukas Podolski hit two in a goal spree against their visitors.

FC Bayern München cruised into the UEFA Cup Round of 16 with 5-1 win against Aberdeen FC at the Fußball Arena München.

Defensive contributions
First-half goals from centre-halves Lucio and Daniel Van Buyten, two second-half Lukas Podolski strikes and a Mark van Bommel effort helped the German giants progress 7-3 on aggregate and they will now play RSC Anderlecht in the next round.

Lucio opener
Aberdeen started the game knowing they had to score to have any chance of progressing after the 2-2 draw at Pittodrie last week. However, Bayern were on the front foot from the start and within two minutes were nearly ahead as Luca Toni's chested pass fell to Podolski who smashed a volley against the bar. Bayern took the lead in the 12th minute when Alan Maybury brought down Toni Kroos and Lucio drove in the resulting free-kick which flew past Langfield and into the roof of the net before he could react.

Costly miss
In the 24th minute, the away side spurned a terrific chance to turn the tide when Darren Mackie latched on to a long ball and drilled his shot just wide of Oliver Kahn's right post. It was to prove a costly miss as the Bavarians doubled their lead after 36 minutes from another set-piece. Kroos' excellent free-kick was headed in by Van Buyten with, again, the pace on the ball too much for Langfield.

Late goals
Jimmy Calderwood's side enjoyed their best spell of the match just after the break and had a Mackie strike ruled out for offside in the 56th minute. However, the vast majority of the chances were coming at Langfield's end and Podolski made it three with 19 minutes remaining after Langfield could only divert Miroslav Klose's shot into his path. He then grabbed his second soon after, heading in Bastian Schweinsteiger's corner, and although the away side got on the scoresheet through a Steve Lovell, Van Bommel drilled in an 85th-minute shot to give the hosts the final word.
