Bayern trailed on aggregate 3-1 heading into the match, but goals from Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng, Thomas Muller and a brace from Robert Lewandowski have Bayern back in the driver’s seat.

Pep Guardiola’s men came out firing, reminiscent of Bayern’s last Champions League game in Munich, when they thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0.
