Who saw that one coming? Not that many people thought Barcelona were going to overturn the 4-0 deficit Bayern Munich inflicted on them in the first leg but losing 3-0 at home? Which, if my mathematics are correct, adds up to a 7-0 tonking over two legs. Bayern’s win at the Camp Nou tonight ensures an all-German final at Wembley on May 25th where they’ll face Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund.
There’ll be a lot of talk about the rise of German football and a changing of the guard but for tonight let’s just sit back, admire Bayern Munich’s play and marvel at that scoreline.
Here’s a sample of the reactions from the Twitter-sphere.
I think it is much to say that without Messi Barca really suffer. I think you have to look a little deeper.Is the coach ready for this level.
