Bayern are already through to the knockout stage, boasting a perfect record of four wins from four, but still dealt a big blow to the aspirations of Barcelona following the 3-0 demolition of the Blaugrana at Camp Nou.
Barcelona exit the Champions League and are now heading to the Europa League to try and slug it out with the likes of Arsenal, Man Utd and other powerful football sides
The first goal came from a glorious through ball by Serge Gnabry to find Sadio Mané, who easily beat Héctor Bellerín for pace and chipped the ball over Marc-André ter Stegen to give Bayern the lead; 20 minutes later, a similar counter-attacking goal with another assist from Gnabry and a good finish by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
Second half began with both teams pressing for a goal but all effort proved abortive until the dying seconds of the game.
The visitors had a late corner and Benjamin Pavard found himself all alone inside the box to score Bayern’s third with the last touch of the game.
The final whistle came to finish Barça’s Champions League journey with another European embarassment.
Recall Barcelona was dumped out of the UCL last season and still got booted uyt in the competition in Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi -finals.
However, it was an easy ride for English Premier League side Liverpool booked their place in the second round of the competition after pummeling Ajax 3-0 away from home.
Needing a draw to reach the last 16, the Reds were fortunate not to be behind before Mohamed Salah clipped in with their only shot on target of the first half.
