Argentina international, Lionel Messi and the rest of his teammates were shocked when the dominant Bundesliga champions outshined them in a chaotic first half, with Philippe Coutinho then coming in as a substitute to seal a fantastic win against his parent club.
‘Thirsty’ Thomas Muller’s sublime strike got things started, although David Alaba’s own goal drew Barcelona level, Serge Gnabry, and Ivan Perisic had Bayern Munich 3-1 up by just in the 27th minute.

Thomas Muller’s 2nd goal piled extended misery on Quique Setién side, who then conceded a total of four goals in the first half of a Champions League match for the first time in history – and while Luis Suarez scored after the half-time break, Bayern were more energized and had more to give.
Bayern’s Joshua Kimmich later scores in the 63rd minute, Robert Lewandowski scored another goal in the 82nd minute and Philippe Coutinho finalized by scoring the other two goals on the 85th and 89th minute.
