FT: Barcelona 2-8 Bayern Munich

There's final time whistle and Bayern Munich progress to the semi-final of the competition. For Barcelona though, it was an absolute humiliation. One of the historic nights where the Catalan giants were mauled by a superior Bavarian side. Muller and Coutinho scored twice, while Perisic, Gnabry, Kimmich and Lewandowski each grabbed a piece. Next up for Bayern, either City or Lyon who play tomorrow.

89' COUTINHO AGAIN!

Coutinho scores his second from inside the box from a Lucas Hernandez cushioned header. Quique Setien and Lionel Messi are bewildered, and even Hansi Flick can't believe what he is seeing. This is unbelievable.

02:14 (IST)15 Aug 2020
86' COOOUTINHOOOO!

This is just getting humilating for Barcelona now as their loaned out midfielder has just scored against them.

02:11 (IST)15 Aug 2020
83' LEWANNDOOWWSSSSKKIIII!

THAT MAN! HAD TO BE! After an engrossing passing play, Coutinho skins Semedo on the left wing and just dinks the ball over the defence with his left foot and the ball finds Lewandowski's head.

02:03 (IST)15 Aug 2020
75' Double change for Bayern

Niklas Sule and Philippe Coutinho come on in place of Serge Gnabry and Jerome Boateng. Interestingly, Coutinho is on loan from Barcelona itself.

01:58 (IST)15 Aug 2020
70' Fati comes on

Ansu Fati replaces midfielder Sergio Busquets.

01:51 (IST)15 Aug 2020
63' KIMMMMMIIICH!

WHAT AN ASSIST BY DAVIES! Alphonso Davies, the 19-year-old Canadian left-back dribbles past the entire defence, especially Nelson Semedo, to just play simple pass to Joshua Kimmich. The left back to right back.

01:45 (IST)15 Aug 2020
57' SUUUUUAREEEEEZ!

WHAT A SENSATIONAL EFFORT! Hello, hello, is the comeback on here in Lisbon? Suarez shows what he has in his locker as he dupes Boateng and gets past him to score a lovely left-footed finish past Neuer. 

01:42 (IST)15 Aug 2020
54' Bookings galore

After Davies was booked for a foul, Suarez is fouled for a foul on Thiago.

01:38 (IST)15 Aug 2020
50' Bayern on song

Bayern have started the second half as they had finished the last one, as Perisic and Goretzka have both threatened the goal already. 

01:32 (IST)15 Aug 2020
46' Substitution for Barcelona

Antoine Griezmann comes on for Sergi Roberto for Barcelona.

01:22 (IST)15 Aug 2020
A shaky Barcelona so far

Barcelona concede four goals in the first half of a UCL match for the first time ever.

01:18 (IST)15 Aug 2020
HT: Barcelona 1-4 Bayern

Bayern Munich have looked like elect champions tonight, as without getting Lewandowski on the scoresheet they have a three-goal lead. Muller scored twice, and Perisic and Gnabry got one each... tormenting Ter Stegen with every chance. Setien's side has been shambolic at the back, but up infront they have been wasteful too with their only goal coming from an Alaba own goal.

01:12 (IST)15 Aug 2020
Can Bayern repeat themselves?

In the 2012/13 UEFA Champions League campaign, Jupp Heynckes' Bayern had defeated Pep Guardiola's Barcelona 7-0 in two legs of the semi-final. The way Hansi Flick's team is playing... they are certainly looking to be in the mood to repeat history.

01:02 (IST)15 Aug 2020
31' MULLLLLEEERRRR!

FOUR NOW! It's very simple from Bayern -- Kimmich gets the ball on the right flank and plays a low cross and Muller just taps it in past Ter Stegen. He is the first player in Champions League history to score six career UCL goals against Barcelona.

00:58 (IST)15 Aug 2020
27' GNAAAAABRYYYYY!

ANOTHER ONE! Barcelona's defence is in shambles in Lisbon now as Thiago's pass cuts through their defence and finds Goretzka. The German midfielder just lobs it above the head of Lenglet and finds Gnabry, who does the rest with a low right-footed finish. Bayern are running away with the game here!

00:52 (IST)15 Aug 2020
21' PERRRIIIIIISIC!

WHAT A SHOT! Another blinding Bayern buildup ends up being a potent attack as Gnabry brings the ball through the centre of the park and after giving Pique the mickey, he passes it to Perisic on the edge of the box. The Croatian takes the ball on his left foot and fires it past Ter Stegen with a lot of power. The Germans are ahead again.

00:46 (IST)15 Aug 2020
12' Bayern, Barca go toe-to-toe

After a couple of near-misses from Barcelona -- Suarez's failed chip and Busquets' missed header -- Bayern Munich has again regained control here as Davis swings a brilliant cross inside the Catalan box. This match can end 6-6 for all we know.

00:39 (IST)15 Aug 2020
7' BARCELONA EQUALISE!

What a game we have here! After Pique played a ball to the left-wing to Alba, the left-back's quick cross is misread by an incoming Alaba, who puts the ball inside his own goal past a hapless Neuer! Game on!
