At that point, the game was over as a contest as Barcelona failed to really trouble the Bavarian giants despite needing to win to secure passage into the knockout stage. Young German midfielder Jamal Musiala scored the third goal in the 62nd minute to make the scoreline a bigger one.
With the latest result, Bayern Munich have now scored 17 goals in their last four Champions League games with the Catalan giants. In that time, the Catalans scored just four times. This season alone, Bayern have an aggregate scoreline of 6-0 against Barcelona.
