Heynckes breaks Champions League record as Bayern march on
Mar 15 2018 by Marjorie Miles
Bayern Munich won the first leg 5-0 - the German side are responsible for three of the six biggest aggregate victories in Champions League knockout stage history (12-1 vs Sporting Lisbon 2008-09, 10-2 vs Arsenal 2016-17 and 7-0 vs Shakhtar Donetsk 2014-15).
Bayern, who have reached the Champions League semi-finals in six of the last eight seasons, will find out their quarter-final opponents in Friday's draw.
They started stronger than Bayern but it was the visitors who had the first chance when David Alaba's free-kick was palmed low into the path of Thomas Muller, but he sliced over.
Bayern are now cruising towards a sixth consecutive Bundesliga title, they are now a whopping twenty points clear of their nearest rivals, Schalke.
But Bayern notched their third of the evening when back-up striker Sandro Wagner came off the bench to mark his Champions League debut with his first goal at this level.

The signing also means San Francisco should be moving on from Carlos Hyde , the starter for the last three seasons when healthy. A dual-threat running back who is equally risky as a ball-carrier as he is catching the ball out of the backfield.
Referee Michael Oliver then had to briefly pause the game as a cat invaded the pitch.
Just a minute into the second half, Bayern finally scored their second when Franck Ribery released overlapping full-back Rafinha and defender Necip Uysal lunged at the cross but missed and the backtracking Gonul diverted it past goalkeeper Zengin.
Bayern entered the second leg of the last-16 tie boasting a 5-0 advantage from their clash at the Allianz Arena last month.
Meanwhile at the other end Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng both headed over while Robert Lewandowski shot across the goal and wide of the far post.
