Barca and Bayern progress

11:32 am on 4 April 2012

Holders Barcelona and Bayern Munich are through to the European Champions League semi-finals with home wins over AC Milan and Olympique Marseille respectively.

Lionel Messi broke another record with his 13th and 14th goals of this season's competition as Barcelona beat AC Milan 3-1 in Spain to go through 3-1 on aggregate.

Bayern Munich, who led 2-0 from the first leg in Marseille, wrapped up their victory with two Ivica Olic goals in the first half for a 2-0 win on the night and a 4-0 aggregate victory.

They will now almost certainly play Real Madrid in their semi-final with Jose Mourinho's side, 3-0 ahead in their quarter-final against APOEL Nicosia, the last obstacle to Bayern reaching the final on their own ground next month.

Barcelona will meet the winners of the Chelsea-Benfica quarter-final which the London side lead 1-0 after the first leg in Lisbon.
