We will of course be back here on Wednesday evening for the second Champions League semi-final in Madrid. Will it be an El Clasico final? Or will Juve reach the final for the first time since 2003?

Join us to find out. See you there.

The impossible job?

Bayern captain Philipp Lahm: "The fans have been really great today. We believed in the miracle, but we couldn't make it happen.

"It's impossible to stop those players for the whole 90 minutes. We didn't lose it today, but in the first leg."

'Every game's a final'

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

It's a cliche when managers say 'every game is a final' but in Barca's case that is true now.

They can win La Liga this weekend against Atletico Madrid, face Athletic Bilbao in the Copa del Rey final and have the Champions League final on 6 June.

Enrique: "We're one win away from winning each of the three competitions. This is our mission."

'We want to win titles'

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Andres Iniesta

Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta: "Bayern improved in the second half, but you have to celebrate the fact we've reached the final. We are where we wanted to be but won't just be happy with that, we want to win titles. We are in a final and it is within our reach. We will try and win it."

'Perfect work from everybody'

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic: "It was a really hard game for us and we were playing against one of the best teams in the world. The first game's result made it easier but in today's big game, we are now we are really happy and want to win it.

"Our coach is very important for us. Every coach has different ideas and I want to thank him from our team. Without him, it is impossible. It was perfect work from everybody and I hope we can win this title now.

"We respect all the teams and tomorrow is a big game for Real Madrid and Juventus."

Less possession, less time spent in the attacking third - but it's Barcelona making the trip to Berlin for the final next month.

Stepan Benyovszky: Enrique deserves so much more praise than he gets. It's him who sets his team up so that they get the most from the front three.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Hard to assess Barcelona's showing in that second half as the tie was realistically well won. But they didn't have a a shot on goal in the whole 45 minutes and allowed themselves to come under heavy pressure. They were noticeably weakened by the half-time withdrawal of Luis Suarez.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

El Clasico final? The hype machine will be into overdrive if Real Madrid beat Juventus tomorrow night.

Juve have been excellent all season though and lead 2-1 after the first leg.

Allan Abbas: The form Barca's front 3 are in don't see them losing this one. They are going to win the treble. Just 3 matches away from it.

mariusz langner: The unselfishness from Neymar & Suarez is astonishing!! Really great attacking team work

Sammiexxx: It is all over! Thoroughly enjoyed the game. The better team won at the end of the day. Barca well done you deserve it.

Chris Rod: I still blame #Guardiola no reason why Bayern should be down against this Barcelona side. They're a more complete team.

Henry Ice: Interesting that Luis Suarez has gone a whole season without any negative incident at #Barca. #MessiNeymarSuarez effect.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Barcelona are into their eighth European Cup final, they have won four of the previous seven. Will they equal Liverpool's total of five in Berlin?

Another reminder about that Champions League final date as it's later than normal. Saturday 6 June, in Berlin.

Barcelona will face either Juventus or Real Madrid. Should be brilliant either way!

Anyone going? I'm on a stag do. In Huddersfield. Great...

Barcelona into the Champions League final! A long and heartfelt embrace between Luis Enrique and Pep Guardiola on the sidelines, the better team won but it was an excellent tie over the two legs.

Whoever beats Barca will certainly deserve the trophy. This is a fantastic team.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Neymar in for a hat-trick! Oh what a touch to get past the last man, just genius stuff, but he gets his lines wrong at the crucial moment, he squares for a Lionel Messi tap-in but over cooks it and pushes the number 10 wide of goal. A real chance for a treble...

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

THREE MINUTES added on. Robert Lewandowski almost finds Mario Gotze running in behind but Dani Alves sweeps up superbly.

'Hey! Hey! Super Bayern, Super Bayern!' is the chant as the fans continue to pogo in the stands. The hosts have made a go of it but those two away goals really put this tie to bed inside half an hour.

SUBSTITUTION

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

How's your strength in depth? Bayern bring on World Cup hero Mario Gotze and the most expensive signing in Bundesliga history, Javier Martinez, for the last few minutes. Off go Thomas Muller and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Robert Lewandowski pulls the ball down on his chest and curls one wide from 20 yards. You can't fault Bayern for effort tonight - just fault their shoddy defending. They've had 19 shots, Barca just five.

Cephas Ifeanyi: Barca just used their hand brake.

Thiago, to Robert Lewandowski, one more! Yes, on to Thomas Muller - he could go for a powerful drive or a cutback and in the end he does neither reallly, screwing a half-cut ball across the face of goal. Shame, the move deserved more.

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Barcelona just soaking up pressure now which is not really their style. Another Bayern goal could make life interesting. They need three in the last 10 minutes.

CLOSE!

Bayern Munich 3-2 Barcelona (Agg: 3-5)

Neymar rather unnecessarily volleys a ball into the stands and very close to Pep Guardiola's head. Lionel Messi gives the ball away and Robert Lewandowski sees his shot deflected wide! The crowd believe this you know. They are used to seeing the improbable happen...

Chris Goodall: Barcelona inviting unnecessary pressure on themselves, they've stopped playing since half time. Very risky.

Rijesh: Game just got interesting.

Xavi on for Andres Iniesta, Xavi making his 150th Champions League appearance. Barca may be in for a more tense last 15 minutes than they thought - but they should still be home easily enough.

GOAL

Thomas Muller with the enthusiasm of a springer spaniel. He strokes home a fine strike from the edge of the area and retrieves the ball, before whipping up the crowd and calling for more support. He still believes!

Bayern need three more.

Last 20 minutes then. The game has gone nowhere in the second half but Barca put the tie to bed long ago. They bring on Jeremy Mathieu for Ivan Rakitic - Javier Mascherano in midfield?

Bayern Munich 2-2 Barcelona (Agg: 2-5)

Barca's transmission hits a false neutral as first Javier Mascherano and then Neymar needlessly give the ball away under no real pressure. Unforced errors. Double faults. Thoughts on Berlin, thoughts on going on strike perhaps.

YELLOW CARD

Bayern Munich 2-2 Barcelona (Agg: 2-5)

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic goes in the book for a late challenge on halfway. It's been an easy night for English ref Mark Clattenburg and his fellow officials.

Bayern Munich 2-2 Barcelona (Agg: 2-5)

Robert Lewandowski must be high on the 'best free transfers' list. Excellent penalty-area play. Bayern whip in a free-kick and Thomas Muller swivels to plant a shot wide.

GOAL

Well that is top class. Simple as that. Robert Lewandowski gets the ball to feet, just inside the area, he squares up Javier Mascherano, rolls the ball from left foot to right and then in one movement sweeps a curler into the far corner. Lovely stuff.

Bayern need four more.

Bayern Munich 1-2 Barcelona (Agg: 1-5)

So it looks like a summer of reflection for Bayern Munich. A good, but not great season. They've not had much to do to win the Bundesliga and they've badly missed Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. Ironically they could have done with Xherdan Shaqiri this year...

Bayern Munich 1-2 Barcelona (Agg: 1-5)

Xavi gets a sprinkling of applause as he warms up down by the corner flag. The intensity and tempo has gone from this game now. Barca are through and we all know it. No injuries or suspensions is the order of the day now.

Neymar tackles by Boateng

Neymar sent tumbling by Jerome Boateng, who is at least close enough to foul them tonight. Pedro has been quiet since coming on.

Bayern Munich 1-2 Barcelona (Agg: 1-5)

Bastian Schweinsteiger picks the ball up in a good area but his touch just lets him down. Barca keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen pings a sweeping 60-yard ball over the top but Bayern counterpart Manuel Neuer meets it 30 yards from goal with a flying header. Two wonderfully good footballing keepers.

Bayern fans still making noise, I think they're singing a chant to the tune of 'Don't you want me' by the Human League. Bet Phil Oakey never saw that one coming...

Thomas Muller has come out pumped up, throwing his weight around and then arguing with the linesman. Barca happy to just take their time now, Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano dictating from the back.
