Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich came back at the Allianz Arena with a vengeance tonight to overturn a two-goal deficit. Porto had managed to beat Bayern 3-1 last week in the Estadio do Dragao. Porto must have felt they a fair chance of progression, but not on Guardiola’s watch. Thiago started the party off in the 14th minute, thanks to a cross from Spanish Juan Bernat, who found the very improving midfield Brazilian, Thiago Alcantara, who scored with a neat header. In the 22nd minute, ex Manchester City defender, Jerome Boateng, made up for his performance in the first leg, with a header. Robert Levandoski made it three, on the 27th minute.
Thomas Muller got the fourth on 38th minute with weak low shot, although it looked sloppy, it actually took a nick of Porto defender Bruno Martins Indi. Lewandowski made it five in the 40thminute.
Although it was curtains for Porto they still gave a good account of themselves and Jackson Martinez nicked a goal in the 73rd minute but was guilty in the 78th minute, when he brushed off boateng and tried to penetrate the Bayern defense, but put the shot wide.
In the 88th minute, Xabi Alonso scored from a close free kick to finish a superb display by theBavarians
Bayern Munich proved their the greatness with this display, and fully deserve d the win to put them in the draw for Friday. They were under strength with the likes of Arjen Robben and FranckRibery not available. but no one will want to face Pep Guardiola‘s men. Just like Barcelona they are up for a treble, its possible especially with two of their top boys to come back, anything is possible, another treble. They did in season 2012/13, and could well do it again. For most of the top teams across the world a double would be maximum requirement, no, not for Bayern Munich, a treble quotes Pep Guardiola in a recent interview, crazy hey,different class those bavarians.
