Farce-alona: Bayern Munich are 5/6 for Champions League redemption

UNSTOPPABLE? Bayern Munich are the red-hot favourites for the Champions League

Tika-taka has died. Take back Lionel Messi’s Ballon D’Ors. The greatest team of this generation is finished. Enter your own wild over-reactions here because Bayern Munich absolutely thumped Barcelona 4-0 in the Champions League semi-final first leg at the Allianz Arena.

The Germans lost on penalties after battering Chelsea for 120 minutes in the final last year and have taken a huge step to healing that wound by tearing Barca a new one on Tuesday night.

Thomas Muller bagged a brace with a Mario Gomez tap in and Arjen Robben goal sandwiched in-between. You can see every goal in super animated GIF form here, although if you’re Tito Vilanova it is probably best to look away.

The Catalan side recovered from a 2-0 loss in the first leg against AC Milan in the second round but this is a much more difficult challenge in Paddy Power’s book. The boss has assured us all that this is the end of Barcelona and they are a massive 25/1 to win the Champions League.

Bayern are the 5/6 favourites for the competition as they eye up a historic German treble with a domestic cup final on the horizon and the Bundesliga trophy already in the cabinet.
