Barca were never allowed to get going, as Bayern took a 4-1 lead before half time, with the Blaugrana toiling in attack and woeful in defence.
What was Muller's overall display like?
📷 Match Snapshot
⚽ ⏱️ 4' Just four minutes into proceedings, Muller gave Bayern the lead. After receiving the ball from his Polish team-mate, he sends an awkward, bouncing left-footed strike into the bottom corner, with Marc-Andre ter Stegen apparently caught cold between the sticks.
⚽ ⏱️ 31' After the half-hour mark, he certainly played the centre-forward role, as he expertly held his run in the middle of the box before darting to the front post to turn home after a cross from Joshua Kimmich. Clement Lenglet was simply not a match for his veteran work inside the box.
Not long after, Muller had a cracking opportunity to grab his hat-trick, but failed to get the ball out of his feet and ended up stabbing a strike wide.
A ⏱️ 85'' Five minuted before time, he helped heaped further misery on Barca by assisting the seventh goal with a pass to Philppe Coutinho.
On the night, Muller touched the ball 47 times, completed a remarkable 32/36 passes, and won half his duels.
He sent 23 passes into the final third, which was the third-most of any player so far in this round of Champions League fixtures.
