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

    What a night, what a team. Bayern are going through the gears at exactly the right time. Let's see which of the Madrid clubs will be joining them in the semi-finals tomorrow. And will it be Monaco or Juventus? We'll know in 24 hours' time.

    Until then, it's goodnight from me. Thanks for your company.

    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.

  6. 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).
  7. 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."

  8. Player reaction

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

    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.

  14. 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."

  17. 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.

  19. Post update

    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.

  20. 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."

  21. 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. Match report here.

  23. 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."

  24. Post update

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

    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:

    "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."

  40. Big night for FC United

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "Finally the breakthrough for FC United.

    "Craig Lindfield and substitute Shelton Payne had a header and shot cleared off the line respectively. The hosts maintained the pressure and when the ball was lofted into a packed penalty area, Greg Daniels got enough power into his header to get it through the crowd of bodies.

    "A crowd of 3588 reacted in typically euphoric manner - FC United now closing in on promotion to the Conference North."

    A couple of big goals have just gone in in League One which affect both ends of the table.

    MK Dons have taken the led against Doncaster to once again close the gap on second-placed Preston, still 2-0 up at Notts County, to a point.

    And Rochdale have kept their play-off hopes alive and hit Leyton Orient's survival hopes by going ahead at Spotland.

    Meanwhile the fans in the north-west of England watching Blackburn v Millwall in the Championship and the League Two meeting of Bury and Southend are still awaiting a goal.

    Bayern aren't going to ease up on Porto. They continue to hog the ball, poke and prod their belittled opponents and look a threat every time they pour forward.

  64. Football League update

    Millwall's Nicky Bailey (right) and Blackburn Rovers Paul Taylor

    Millwall's hopes of survival in the Championship would receive a massive boost if they could score in the second half of their game at Blackburn. It's currently goalless at Ewood Park - and if it stays like that, the Lions would be three points adrift of safety with two matches remaining.

    Promotion from League One is still in Preston's hands after they took a 2-0 half-time at relegation-threatened Notts County. They started the night in second place and a point ahead of MK Dons, who are only drawing 0-0 with Doncaster at the break.

    Fourth-placed Bury and fifth-placed Southend have not been able to find a goal in the first half of their League Two clash at a packed JD Stadium - where all the fans have been allowed in for free.

    "But with a pretty loud and vocal crowd in attendance, they would prefer to get the job done tonight.

    The half ends with a Porto player trying to control the ball and putting it out for a goal-kick with a heavy touch. In the space of 45 minutes, Bayern have steamrollered their opponents. They say 2-0 is an edgy half-time scoreline - nobody's ever said that about 6-3.

    All the Football League goals so far have come in League One with second-placed Preston taking a step nearer to automatic promotion after taking a 2-0 lead at relegation-threatened Notts County - their second coming from the division's player of the year Joe Garner.

    Promotion rivals MK Dons are being held by Doncaster while Swindon, already in the play-offs, are losing to Walsall and Scunthorpe are beating Bradford.

    "It's difficult to see Porto not getting embarrassed now. It's one-way traffic. Bayern are playing really well but that goal is a bit of a mess. There's a big deflection but the keeper lifts his legs and it goes through them. You wouldn't be surprised if they took Fabiano off at half-time. Three of the four could have been stopped."

  85. GOAL

    Bayern 4-0 Porto (Agg: 5-3) - Thomas Muller

    Mueller

    This is the quarter-finals of the Champions League, the best club competition in the world... and it's all too easy for Bayern. They are pulling apart Porto like a ravenous pack of wolves - Thomas Muller's shot from the edge of the area taking a deflection off Bruno Indi and wrong-footing the keeper to nestle in the back of the net. Shall we run a sweep? I'm going for seven.

    Robert Lewandowski
  91. GOAL

    Bayern 3-0 Porto (Agg: 4-3) - Robert Lewandowski

    It's never wise to poke a tiger. Porto did that last week, and are paying the price now - Bayern storming into a three-goal lead inside the first half hour. A ball into the box is expertly helped on by Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski stoops to put his side in front in the tie.

    "Forget all the sophisticated play - you don't need.it. A corner to the back post is headed back to the six-yard line and Boateng is able to head it home. Bayern have been absolutely brilliant. Porto could be in for a hammering."

  94. GOAL

    Bayern 2-0 Porto (Agg: 3-3) - Jerome Boateng

    That noise you've just heard... that's the roar from Munich. The continent's giants have woken from their slumber to take charge of this tie. Jerome Boateng is the man, heading home from close range after Holger Badstuber - guilty of a mistake in the first leg - flicked the ball on.

    "There was a real confidence among the Bayern Munich fans and players before the game, well they'll utterly believe they are going to do this now. Pep Guardiola will want to get this done right now. If they can get another goal before half-time that will be a hammer blow to Porto."

  98. Post update

  100. Barca in front

    There's also been a goal in the Nou Camp, and it's bad news for Paris St-Germain as Barcelona go 4-1 ahead on aggregate. Great play from Andres Iniesta sees the playmaker burst through a number of challenges before sliding in Neymar who makes no mistake.

    "A negativity will settle in around Porto you'd expect."

  102. GOAL

    Bayern 1-0 Porto (Agg: 2-3) - Thiago

    "Robert Lewandowski is the one who created the chance. He found Thomas Muller brilliantly and followed up like every good centre forward does. Porto were lucky - their keeper wasn't going to get there if it was inside the post."

  104. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Bayern 0-0 Porto (Agg: 1-3)

    So, so close from Bayern. Thomas Muller breaks through and his powerful shot is parried by the goalkeeper. From the follow-up, Robert Lewandowski hits the post. Porto all at sea there.

  105. Post update

    Bayern 0-0 Porto (Agg: 1-3)

    Porto's Diego Reyes is making his Champions League debut tonight and he makes a fine interception to stop a dangerous Robert Lewandowski in his tracks. He read that well.

  120. Pass masters

    Bayern v Porto (19:45 BST) (Agg: 1-3)

    Sticking with the recent stats theme, it's perhaps no surprise that Bayern have made the most passes in this season's competition, share the top pass completion award so far (91%) and they also rank highest for possession, 63% - the same as Barcelona, their manager's old club.

  121. Pep a failure? No

    Bayern v Porto (19:45 BST) (Agg: 1-3)

    Franz Beckenbauer

    Considering the trophies Pep Guardiola has won at Bayern and the style of play he has developed, it's crazy to think the German giants are even fielding questions about their manager's future. But they are.

    Honorary president and all-round footballing legend Franz Beckenbauer is reported to have told German newspaper Bild: "Has Guardiola failed? No. I think it would be too drastic to make such a claim.

    "Of course, you have to be on top of your game in the knockout stages of the Champions League. We have failed to do just that in three out of four games.

    "Bayern were beaten twice by Real Madrid last year. We have not forgotten about the 4-0 loss yet. Not a single Bayern player reached his usual level against Porto. But I can say one thing and that is that I still have complete faith in Guardiola, even if the situation is quite tricky."

  123. Blockbusting Porto

    Bayern v Porto (19:45 BST) (Agg: 1-3)

    Perhaps my favourite Porto stat of the lot is that nobody else has scored more Champions League goals from outside the area this season. They've smashed in eight raspers in total. You have been warned, Manuel Neuer.

  124. Post update

    Bayern v Porto (19:45 BST) (Agg: 1-3)

    Twice winners Porto have not reached the last four since winning the trophy in 2004, but they are unbeaten in this season's competition. Alongside Bayern, they top the 'average goals a game' table with 2.67 while their overall goal difference in the tournament is the best (+18). The real deal, basically.

    How are both sides doing domestically this season? Very well, in case you didn't know.

    Bayern won again at the weekend to go within two wins of another Bundesliga title, while Porto are second in their respective league, three points behind Benfica. That title race looks to be going down to the wire.

  128. Football League latest

    It's a big night in the Football League with one match in the Championship, five in League One and one in League Two - with something at stake in almost every fixture.

    Millwall, in the Championship relegation zone, visit Blackburn knowing that a victory will take them to within a point of Rotherham, who still face a possible three-point deduction.

    Promotion rivals Preston and MK Dons are both in action in League One. Preston, one point ahead of the Buckinghamshire side, travel to Notts County, who are two points adrift of safety, while the free-scoring Dons host mid-table Doncaster. Meanwhile Leyton Orient can climb out of the relegation zone with a win at Rochdale - a result which would end the hosts' slim play-off hopes.

    It's free entry for the only game of the night in League Two - and the fans are in for a thriller as fourth-placed Bury entertain fifth-placed Southend. A win will put automatic promotion into Bury's hands, as they will move a point ahead of Wycombe in third place with two games remaining.

    "Bayern have goals in their team but do they have enough pace without the injured Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben? This was a night made for those two as Porto have had to change their two full-backs.

    "I'm sure Pep Guardiola will have a really good plan in his head. It will involve a lot of Mario Gotze - he's a great creative influence. If they can take a chance early, they become the big favourites. But it's still in the balance as it stands."

    BBC Sport's Simon Stone: "It could be a significant evening for FC United of Manchester.

    "Ten years after the club was formed by fans disillusioned after the Glazer family's takeover of Manchester United, FC United only need to beat Stourbridge in their Evo-Stik Premier League game to confirm promotion to Conference North, tier six of the football pyramid.

    "It would be the fourth promotion in the club's history in a game that will be their last 'on the road'.

    "Since their formation, FC United have played at a variety of grounds but the supporter-owned club are due to open their purpose-built stadium, which fans have raised a significant proportion of the £6.5m for, at Broadhurst Park next month when they will play Benfica in a friendly."

    Porto manager Julen Lopetegui knows Pep Guardiola well - they were team-mates at Barcelona in the 1990s. He knows what is required tonight and says his team will not sit back on their first-leg lead and will look to attack Bayern when they can, describing tonight's game as a "huge challenge".

    Whatever happens tonight, Pep Guardiola says he will remain Bayern Munich manager and will not be heading to Manchester City in the summer.

    When asked about his future plans before this game, Guardiola said: "My future is: Wednesday free, Thursday training, and, of course, next year to be here. That's my future."

    City fans... would you be happy with Pep? I imagine I know the answer to that.

    Ricardo Quaresma

    Porto started like a 100m sprinter in the first leg at Estadio do Dragao, taking a 2-0 lead inside 10 minutes - Ricardo Quaresma scoring twice. Thiago Alcantara pulled one back in the 28th minute but Jackson Martinez's second-half strike ensured the boys from Portugal head into tonight with a healthy advantage.

    Three defensive mistakes cost Bayern in the first leg. There's no margin for error tonight.

  147. The next Jose?

    26 May 2004... football has never been the same since.

    Why? Well, that was the day Jose Mourinho shocked Europe by taking unfancied Porto all the way to the Champions League final. And winning it.

    Eleven years on, we're still being entertained off the pitch by The Special One, and continue to marvel at his achievements on the pitch.

    But is there a new sheriff in town? Ladies and gentleman, I give you Julen Lopetegui.
