Barcelona annihilate Bayern Munich 4-0

Barcelona all but booked their places in the semi-finals of the Champions League with a 4-0 annihilation of Bayern Munich at the Nou Camp.

The Bundesliga side had no answer to the attacking brilliance of Barcelona's front three of Lionel Messi, Samuel Eto'o and Thierry Henry.

The Catalan side were two-nil up within 12 minutes thanks to Messi and Eto'o and it was four and game over before half time with Messi grabbing his second before Henry got in on the party.

While the front three will dominate the headlines, it was midfield maestros Xavi and Andres Iniesta who pulled the strings for Barcelona. Bayern's only notable contribution to the game was Mark Van Bommel's cynical close line on Messi which went unpunished.
