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.
