Bayern Munich beat Barcelona 3-0 in their Champions League semi-final second-leg in Barcelona on Wednesday to set up the first ever all-German final and the Bundesliga champions' third final in four years.


Goals by Arjen Robben, an own-goal by Gerard Pique and a header by Thomas Müller, all in the second-half, saw them to an astonishing 7-0 aggregate victory and a date with Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on May 25.

Barcelona - appearing in a record sixth successive semi-final – never threatened to overcome the first-leg deficit as they slipped to their worst aggregate defeat in European competition.


It was also the first home defeat in the competition for Barca since losing an inconsequential group stage match to Rubin Kazan in 2009, and was the first time they had lost both legs of a European match since Scottish side Dundee United beat them in 1987.
