UEFA Champions League

Bayern Munich 3-0 FC Barcelona

FC Barcelona won’t be in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 17 years after going down 3-0 to Bayern Munich in their final match in Group E on Wednesday.

Barca needed a win to advance to the knockout stages, but a slow start saw Bayern race into a two-goal lead in the first half through Thomas Muller and Leroy Sane.

The Bavarians compounded matters after halftime when Jamal Musiala added a third to see them to six wins from six in the group whilst demoted the Catalans to the UEFA Europa League.
