Munich: Bayern Munich are on the verge of their third Champions League final in four years after routing Barcelona 4-0 in Tuesday's semi-final, first leg at the Allianz Arena.

It was the Spanish giants' worst Champions League defeat since the 4-0 loss to Dynamo Kiev in the group stage in 1997.

Germany star Thomas Mueller was Barca's chief tormentor with a goal in each half while striker Mario Gomez and Dutch winger Arjen Robben also netted to give Bayern a huge advantage for the return leg at the Camp Nou on May 1.
