Mercifully for Barcelona, there will be just two added minutes otherwise Coutinho might break the Champions League single game scoring record.
- GoalPhilippe CoutinhoFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 2 Bayern Munich 8 (Coutinho 89)
I don't know what you call this now. Bayern walk into the Barcelona area again. A lovely lofted ball finds Hernandez free at the back post. He heads it to an unmarked Coutinho in the box, who takes a touch and drills it home with ease.
In the midst of all that, Kimmich has been booked and Tolisso and Hernandez have come on for Bayern.
- GoalPhilippe CoutinhoFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 2 Bayern Munich 7 (Coutinho 85)
Messi coughs up the ball and doesn't bother trying to retrieve it. Bayern break swiftly. Muller has all kinds of options and picks out Coutinho in the area, who cuts inside his man and slides a low shot into the goal. This is an utter humiliation.
- GoalRobert LewandowskiFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 2 Bayern Munich 6 (Lewandowski 82)
Bayern keep the ball for an eternity, and eventually work it to Coutinho on the left. He clips in a lovely cross for Lewandowski to head home from close range, his 54th goal of the season.
It's playtime for Bayern, who are stroking the ball around in Barcelona's half with little opposition.
Finally a chance for Messi. He takes a short pass in his stride and bursts into the area, but his low hsot is well gathered by Neuer.
Coutinho comes on for Bayern, replacing Gnabry, while Sule replaces Boateng.
Kimmich piles forward again down the right. He plays the ball across the area to Muller, who lets the ball run through his legs. Lewandowski gathers, but his shot is well blocked and Barcelona clear.
- OffSergio BusquetsFC Barcelona
- OnAnsu FatiFC Barcelona
Fati comes on for Barcelona in place of Busquets.
Ter Stegen makes an excellent save from a fierce drive by Gnabry.

- OffIvan PerišicFC Bayern Munich
- OnKingsley ComanFC Bayern Munich
Kingsley Coman replaces Perisic for Bayern. There's a lull here after a clash of heads on the far side.
Kimmich intercepts the ball as Barcelona try to play out from the back. His cross is weak though, and straight into the arms of ter Stegen just when a sixth looked on.
- GoalJoshua KimmichFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 2 Bayern Munich 5 (Kimmich 63)
This one's all about Davies. He absolutely flummoxes Semedo tight on the left wing, before cutting into the area right along the goal line. When he reaches the six-yard box he cuts it back to Kimmich, who taps the ball into an empty net for Bayern's fifth.
Busquets takes out Goretzka just as he was breaking through midfield. It's unfathomable how that is not a yellow card.
Bayern win it high up the pitch again, but Perisic lashes a bouncing ball high over the bar.
Jordi Alba is booked for throwing the ball at the referee. Ray Wilkins once got a far worse punishment for that.
- GoalLuis SuárezFC Barcelona
GOAL! Barcelona 2 (Suarez 57) Bayern Munich 4
Now then! Messi finds Jordi Alba with a nice pass on the left. Alba cuts it to Suarez on the edge, who sends Boateng out of the ground with a lovely turn before coolly tucking his shot past Neuer.
Messi whips in a corner for Barcelona but it's comfortably cleared by Bayern.
- Yellow cardLuis SuárezFC Barcelona
Suarez is booked for a late tackle on Thiago.
A disallowed goal here. Lewandowski leads a lightning break for Bayern. He loses the ball as he reaches the area and it falls to an offside Muller, who lays it back to him to apply the finish but it's chalked off.
- Yellow cardAlphonso DaviesFC Bayern Munich
A booking here for Davies after a clash with Vidal.
Lovely play from Bayern again. After a session of keep ball, Goretzka breaks onto a lovely ball over the top by Kimmich but slices his shot over the bar as he was running wide of goal.
A long ball from Bayern leaves Muller one on one with Lenglet. He holds the ball up and lays it off to Perisic on the edge of the area, who thumps his shot straight at ter Stegen.

- 2nd Half
We're underway again.
Barcelona are making a substitution, with Griezmann replacing Sergi Roberto.
- End of 1st Half
That's half-time. Phew!
Sergi Roberto has a meander and finds Suarez, but his bouncing shot from the edge of the area is comfortably gathered by Neuer.
Messi is coming deeper to try and get Barcelona going, but it's not really happening.
Bayern are knocking it about at will here. Suarez tries to get away when Barcelona win the ball back, but Boateng brings him down and is booked.
Bayern win a corner. Lewandowski gets his head to it, but from ten yards out puts it straight at ter Stegen.
Ter Stegen plays a loose ball to Pique now; the ball breaks to Perisic on the left of the area, but he goes for the Hollywood goal in the postage stamp and misses by a long way. You get the sense that Bayern, if they truly felt the need, could punish Barcelona with a seismic and epochal defeat here.
Semedo plays a quick one two with Suarez, but the return ball has too much on it and Neuer gathers.
Barcelona win a corner, but this already feels over. Bayern might be sloppy at the back, but they look like scoring every time they go forwards.
- GoalThomas MüllerFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 1 Bayern Munich 4 (Muller 31)
It's four! This is a slaughter and could get very embarrassing for Barcelona. Kimmich picks up a loose ball on the right of the Barcelona area. He whips a low cross into the six-yard box where Muller gets across his man to stab in another goal. Ruthless and brilliant from Bayern.
Barcelona are an absolute shambles at the back. They cough the ball up straight away after the goal in their own area, and only a superb save from ter Stegen stops Lewandowski making it four.
GOAL! Barcelona 1 Bayern Munich 3 (Gnabry 27)
Another one! Thiago finds Goretzka in the pocket between Barcelona's midfield and defence. He flips a lovely instant, ball over the top to Gnabry, who hits it first time in the area and locates the bottom corner. A beauty!
CHANCE! Perisic fires a low cross into the six-yard box. Ter Stegen flaps at it and the ball falls to Lewandowski, who can't divert the ball into the net.
Another dangerous ball into the area from Sergi Roberto is awkwardly turned around the post by Alaba for a corner. A more accurate ball there and two Barcelona players were waiting to tap it in. Bayern are sensational going forwards but wide open at the back.
Kimmich tees up Thiago on the edge of the area, who slices a shot high and wide. This is brilliant chaos.
- GoalIvan PerišicFC Bayern Munich
GOAL! Barcelona 1 Bayern Munich 2 (Perisic 21)
Bayern retake the lead! Sergi Roberto loses the ball in a fifty-fifty with Gnabry 30 yards from his own goal. Gnabry takes it on and feeds Perisic on the left of the area, who smashes a left-footed drive across goal. Ter Stegen gets a leg to it but can only send the ball high into the roof of the net.
Barcelona win the ball and break quickly. Messi gets it on the right, and powers towards goal; he shimmies his way into a shooting position but his low drive from the edge of the area is comfortably gathered by Neuer.
Two quick corners in a row for Bayern. They come to nought, but they do seem to be settling the quicker of the two.
Bayern win a corner, which Goretzka gets his head to first but sends it looping over the bar.
An inevitable lull now after such a frenetic start.
A chance for Lewandowski now; Muller heads a ball into his path but from eight yards out he shanks a difficult volley over the bar. The pace of this match is something else.
A brilliant cross from Davies is cleared by Lenglet for a corner, just as Goretzka was lurking behind him.
OFF THE POST! How did Busquets miss? A perfect cross from Messi on the right finds Busquets totally unmarked and six yards out. Somehow, he fails to get a meaningful head to the ball and a faint touch sends it bouncing onto the post and out. What a chance!
CHANCE! Semedo humiliates Alaba now, nutmegging him with a through ball to Suarez whose shot is brilliantly saved by Neuer. My oh my.
GOAL! Barcelona 1 (Alaba o.g. 7) Bayern Munich 1
Wow, it's 1-1! A long ball over the top by Barcelona suddenly releases Alba into the Bayern area. He squares it across the box, where Alaba tries to hack it clear and slashes the spinning ball over the head of Neuer and into the net! Amazing stuff so far!
This is an absolutely blistering start. Bayern could so easily have gone a goal behind a minute before Muller tucked them in front.
GOAL! Barcelona 0 Bayern Munich 1 (Muller 4)
Bayern are ahead! Perisic breaks free down the left, and finds Muller on the edge of the area. Muller plays a quick one two with Lewandowski and drills his left-foot shot first time into the bottom corner from 15 yards out. That's a lovely goal.
Almost a chance for Barcelona, as Sergi Roberto gets in down the right; he tries to square it to Suarez for a tap-in but a crucial foot in by Boateng cuts out the danger.
It's all Bayern so far, who are getting the ball forwards quickly. Barcelona look a little nervy at the back so far.
The players are out and milling around while the Champions League anthem plays. Your referee tonight will be Damir Skomina.
It's also worth noting what tonight could mean for Bayern's now permanent manager, Hans-Dieter Flick. After being given the gig full-time in April after taking over from the departing Niko Kovac in November 2019, he has secured the Bundesliga title and the DFB-Pokal trophy. If his remarkable team keep winning, he will secure a Treble.
That said, the boy can play and then some. He has been a crucial influence in three Champions League victories for Barcelona so far in his career; if he can guide them past Bayern tonight and to another, it will be a major factor in defining his legacy when he does eventually retire. If any club are aware of Messi's ability to sort a game by himself, then it is Bayern. Back in 2015, one of his most seminal performances reduced Bayern to rubble in the Camp Nou in the semi-finals.
So, shall we have a chat about Lionel? The current Balon d'Or holder turned 33 in June, and bounced off the floor to score a wonderful goal against Napoli last weekend. Yet for all of his enormous talent, he doesn't quite have the haul of major trophies to match the rather bold assertion by some that he is the greatest player ever to play this beautiful game. As things stand he's contested less Champions League finals during his career than Liverpool over the same period, despite the enormous advantages of playing in front of one of the greatest midfields in history and Barcelona's super club status in Spain and Europe.
Barcelona and Bayern Munich are the only two teams left in the competition to have actually won it. They each have a nap hand of triumphs, though neither club has returned to the final since their last victory. For Barcelona that was a 3-1 victory over Juventus in Berlin in 2015, while Bayern won the first – and so far, only – all-German Big Cup final 2-1 against Bayern at Wembley in 2013. In each instance, one beat the other at the semi-final stage.
The bad news for Barcelona tonight is Bayern’s merciless run of form. In all competitions – Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and the Champions League – they’ve won 25 of their last 26 matches. Only RB Leipzig, who qualified for the semi-finals last night, managed to hold them to a draw back in February. Bayern have also won all eight of their Champions League games this season, scoring a phenomenal 31 goals in the process. Most recently, as mentioned earlier, they eviscerated Chelsea in Munich six days ago.
The Champions League represents Barcelona's last chance of winning a trophy in the prolonged 2019-20 season. Relative to their largesse, it's been a taxing season for the club. They ceded the league title to Real Madrid a few weeks ago, after sacking manager Ernesto Valverde in January when they were in first place. Now, after sorting out a tricky second leg to Napoli in the last 16 on Saturday his replacement Quique Setien, who looks certain to be replaced shortly, is three games away from securing the sixth European Cup/Champions League title in the history of the club.
No changes for Bayern tonight; they retain the same XI that walloped Chelsea last Saturday.
There are two changes for Barcelona tonight. Ivan Rakitic and Antoine Griezmann drop to the bench, replaced by Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets.
And your Bayern Munich:
Here's your boys from Barcelona for tonight:
