All-German Champions League football final

5:52 am on 3 May 2013

Bayern Munich have cruised into their third Champions League football final in four years, beating Barcelona 3-0 in their second leg of their semi-final in Barcelona.

It gave Bayern Munich a 7-0 aggregate victory.

All goals came in the second half but Barcelona's hopes of turning around a 4-deficit after the first leg were almost eradicated before the game started with playmaker Lionel Messi missing from the starting line-up with a hamstring injury.

Bayern Munich will play fellow German club Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final at Wembley later this month.
