Champions League: Barcelona dismiss PSG as Bayern cruise into semi final

The atmosphere at the Camp Nou last night could be likened to a training session for Barcelona as they finished the job they started a week ago against French Champions Paris Saint German.

The Spanish side defeated the visitors on all fronts with Brazilian forward Neymar scroring twice to seal a semi final spot for Barcelona as they won 5-1 on aggregate.

In the other semi final on the night, Bayern Munich punished FC Porto winning  5-1 to cancel the the Portuguese side's first leg 3-1 win.

Bayern still did not have a handful of players but were enough to run riot on Porto to progress to the semi finals as well. Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng, Robert Lewandowski and Xabi Alonso all made the scorers sheet.

Tonight will see Real Madrid battle city rivals Atletico Madrid in the return leg inside Santiago Bernabeau to continue the drama which ended scoreless in the first leg while Juventus travel to Monaco with a 1-0 advantage from the first leg.
