Barcelona are virtually out of the Champions League after they were beaten 4-0 by Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening! The Bundesliga team started strongly, Valdés having to save from Robben before Müller opened the scoring after Dante headed back Robben's lofted pass. Piqué and Alexis were both lucky to be let off penalty appeals for handling in the area, but four minutes after the restart Bayern went two up when Mario Gómez turned the ball in to the net from a clearly offside position after Müller headed over Robben's corner. With Messi back in the line-up but clearly not yet fully fit, Tito Vilanova's side hardly troubled Neuer in the local goal, and Robben scored a third after rounding Jordi Alba to beat Valdés, Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai waving away protests by the Catalans that the fullback had been obstructed by Müller. Bartra missed a couple of chances to get the away goal his team needed, and with eight minutes to go Müller made it four after getting on the end of Alaba's cross from the left wing. In the end some dubious refereeing decisions contributed to Barça biggest defeat in recent history, but to be honest Bayern looked much the better team on the night.
