FC Barcelona knocked Pep Guaridola’s side from Champions league with an aggregate win of 5-3. After winning the first leg match at Camp Nou, 3-0, Barcelona have lost the second leg match in Munich 3-2.
Bayern already in the 7th minute scored an early opener from a freekick with Benatia’s header, but the Catalans giant until the end of first half time scored two over Neymar to seal the half time lead and to end any hopes that Guardiola’s side might have.
Second half another story as Enrique decided to defend a big lead his team in overall had, so he pulled of Suarez (two assist) and introduced Pedro instead. Bayern started to push more, and over Lewandowski and Muller managed to score well deserved two goals for a final 3-2 lead. Consolidate win for Bayern Munich but not enough to seal the Champions league final for which Barca booked their ticket and tomorrow will find out against who they will play, Juventus or another Spanish side, Real Madrid.
