The Bayern Munich footballers sovereignly announced the 2019/2020 Champions League semifinals. In Friday's race, FC Barcelona outclassed the quarterfinals 8: 2 for final responsibility
Bayern decided in the first half, after which he led 4: 1. Thomas Müller started the score and although David Alaba equalized with the patriots, Bayern scored three goals within nine minutes, Ivan Perišič, Serge Gnabry and Müller again won. In the second half, Joshua Kimmich, Robert Lewandowski and twice Coutinho signed in the shooting list. Bayern Munich is the first team in history to score eight goals in the elimination phase of the Champions League.
Bayern scored first in a quick start. After 4 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Perišič might have resulted in another goal for Müllera. However, the Germans did not last long for joy, in two minutes Jordi Alba got for the defense of the Munich people and his pass to Suarez was knocked by Alaba into his own net. With 21 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, Gnabry needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed. Immediately, he could have added another goal to Bayern Lewandowski, but he only hit the rebound into Ter Stegen. He didn't have to be disappointed, the defense of Barcelona did not have its day, first Gnabry escaped and comfortably increased to 3: 1, then after a pass Thomas Müller scored - 1: 4. The Barcelona people were worried, Bayern, with his high attacks, did not allow them to do anything. Even when they got to the end, Neuer handled their experiments without any problems.
In the second half, the picture of the game did not change, Bayern threatened from counterattacks. After one of the counterattacks, Lewandowski found himself in the end, but he was offside. Barcelona had a couple of good opportunities to reply, but the home team's keeper Suarez just wouldn't surrender. He received a pass from Jordi Albu before the penalty area, elegantly enjoyed Boateng and beat Neuer. However, Bayern did not leave room for Barcelona to return. On the left side, Davies deftly relaxed through Semed, entered the penalty area, passed under him and Kimmich increased to an empty goal to 5: 2. The Munich people continued to perform responsibly, reaching the 16th of Barcelona several times, but without a successful completion. The Catalans were a disappointment, however. The referee showed Messi's attempt to score in 76 minutes into the match, but the shot hit the crossbar. In the end, the cannon player Bayern Lewandowski also survived, who used the Coutinho center with a header into an empty goal. The final score of 8: 2 was scored by Coutinho, two goals in four minutes.
