However, one major factor still stands in their way, and that is Bayern Munich and their fort of a home ground, the Allianz Arena.

Despite their 3-0 lead, Barcelona have not yet eliminated Pep Guardiola’s crew, and given the Bundesliga champions home form and record, a lot is still left to be played for.

The last time Bayern Munchen fell to a first leg defeat, a 3-1 loss to Porto in the quarter-finals, they ended up thrashing their opponents 6-1 in the return leg.
