Bayern march on and they will face Manchester City or Lyon in the last four after putting eight past Barca! Muller and Coutinho, the latter still a Barca player, each got two, while there were also goals for Perisic, Gnabry, Kimmich and Lewandowski. Alaba’s own goal actually levelled the game at an early stage, but Suarez’s second-half strike was a mere consolation.
