Bundesliga live text

The Bundesliga's website ran a live text of the build-up to tonight's game, and they weren't pulling any punches with how important this match was for Pep Guardiola.

"Regarded as one of world football's most talented tactical minds, Pep Guardiola is gearing up for an encounter which could define his legacy as head coach of FC Bayern München," they said.

He's come through this test with some style, I'm sure we can agree.

How's stat?!

Bayern 6-1 Porto (Agg: 7-4)

  • Bayern have netted six headed goals in the Champions League this season, more than any other side.
  • Bayern are the first team to score three headed goals in one Champions League match since September 2013 (PSG v Olympiakos).

Player reaction

Bayern 6-1 Porto (Agg: 7-4)

And here's some reaction from Bayern striker Thomas Muller: "It's hard to find any words. I'm quite exhausted., but it couldn't have gone any better. We never imagined to play like we played in the first half, it was really hard work. Great compliments to my team."

Player reaction

Bayern's two-goal striker Robert Lewandowski has been speaking to the media, here's what he said to Uefa.com: "The first half was simply awesome, it was totally great. We are Bayern and we can turn a 3-1 defeat around. We knew we had to push really hard. Five goals in the first half are absolutely crazy, of course."

Jonathan Collins: Pep Guardiola is only a good manager because he has the team already there. Jose Mourinho had to make the team at Porto and Inter and won the Champions League with them both. So Mourinho is the better manager by 10 times.

The draw for the semi-finals of the Champions League takes place on Friday. It'll be mouth-watering whichever combination comes out.

Has the Champions League become predictable?

BBC Radio 5 live's Pat Nevin at Allianz Arena

"It got predictable a long time ago. It's a little bit of a shame. We try not to be biased during commentary but Porto were the last of the little teams and they've been absolutely whacked, swatted like flies out of the way.

"There's always Spanish and German teams in the semi-finals, the odd time an Italian or English team but that's it. And even then it's the same teams. But it doesn't mean it's not exciting."

Parul Sharma: It would be quite disappointing not to see Bayern Munich v Barcelona final now! And won't be fair to either of team as well.

I've got a new toy and I'm going to use it to sum up Bayern's first-half dominance - here is the heat map of their two centre-halves. They were just extra midfielders.

Football League

It's been a significant night in all three divisions of the Football League with joy and heartache in equal measure.

Millwall's hopes of escaping the Championship's relegation zone suffered a big blow as they let in two late goals to the prolific Rudi Gestede and Jordan Rhodes at Blackburn. The Lions are four points adrift of safety with two games left to play.

It's as you were at the top of League One with second-placed Preston and third-placed MK Dons both winning - leaving North End a point ahead going into the final two weekends of the season. Rochdale kept their slim play-off hopes alive by beating Leyton Orient while there were draws between Swindon and Walsall (3-3) and Scunthorpe and Bradford (1-1).

The defeats for Orient and Notts County leave both clubs in desperate trouble.

Southend edged the League Two promotion clash at Bury with former Shaker David Worrall scoring the only goal to take United level on points with third-placed Wycombe.

Want a good stat? On your head, then...

Tonight's game saw the most headed goals in a CL match this season - four.

The dominance shown by Bayern and Barcelona tonight shows just how far behind the Premier League clubs are. Even Chelsea would have struggled to contain these two tonight.

Who would win if Bayern drew Barca?

BBC Radio 5 live's Pat Nevin at Allianz Arena

"If everyone is fit, I would probably say Barcelona. Franck Ribery is key, if he was playing at his best I'd say it would be closer but he hasn't been at his best. Luis Suarez, Lionel Messi and Neymar have scored more than 90 goals between them this season and I'd back them to score against the defence we've seen here tonight."

Barca breeze through

Just to let you know about the other quarter-final being played tonight, Barcelona beat Paris St-Germain 2-0 to progress 5-1 on aggregate.

FC United on the up

BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "FC United's biggest crowd of the season were able to celebrate promotion to Conference North thanks to Greg Daniels' second-half header.

"Daniels met Craig Lindfield's 69th-minute cross with enough power to get it through a crowded six-yard box and to earn Karl Marginson's men a 1-0 win over Stourbridge.

"The result takes FC United five points clear of second-placed Workington in the Evo-Stik Premier League with just one game to go.

"A crowd of 3,588 were at the Tameside Stadium to witness the club who were only formed 10 years ago as a direct result of the Glazer family's takeover of Manchester United gain their fourth promotion.

"They are now just two leagues away from the Football League. And taking their place in the Evo-Stik Premier League next season will be Salford City.

"The team part-owned by the 'Class of 92' - Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt - cannot be caught at the top of the First Division North following Darlington's failure to win at Warrington."

This sums up Bayern for me. Mario Gotze, the World Cup-winning playmaker, was buzzing all over the park - helping to keep Porto in check whenever they ventured forward. This is his heat map:

"It's an amazing sight, it's not like the disconnect we see with clubs and supporters in the British Isles. It doesn't seem forced, it's not a PR thing, there's just a good relationship between the players and the fans."

BBC Radio 5 live's Pat Nevin at Allianz Arena

"Bayern were ruthlessly efficient in the first half. They were brilliant, scored great goals against a poor team.

"But they made some tactical changes and looked bordering on anaemic in the second half. They didn't look up for it. They could have been pulled back in the end but there's more to come from this team."

It's almost seven, but Robert Lewandowski is denied a hat-trick when his close-range shot is blocked and the follow-up is cleared off the line. Porto want this to end now. Quickly.

"They've played very averagely in the second half but that was a moment of genius. It's come over the wall and back down again and landed low in the net - it shows the quality. Nothing the keeper could do about that."
