The German team reached the top scorer in the tournament’s history after their 8-2 victory over Barcelona in Lisbon.
The rout of Bayern Munich on Barcelona 8-2 in the Luz Stadium of Lisbon gave him the ticket to the semifinals of the Champions League, so the Bavarians dream of leaving a new Orejona in their showcase.
However, such a bulky result for the quarterfinals, not only allowed him to advance in the international tournament, but also opened the doors in the great history of the continental competition.
This happens because Hans-Dieter Flick’s team made their mark by being the first team to score eight goals in a knockout round of the most important competition in Europe.
8 – Bayern Munich are the first team to score eight goals in a Champions League knockout match. Endless. #UCL
