Bayern München dumped FC Barcelona out of the Champions League on Wednesday, cruising to a 3-0 victory over the Catalan giants at Allianz Arena.




Speaking to DAZN after the game, Bayern forward Thomas Müller tried to explain why the game was so one-sided.

"I don't think Barca can cope with the intensity," Müller told DAZN in a post-match interview and added:

"Technically, they have it all, they have great players tactically and technically. But they can't cope with the intensity in top-level football."

It's the second time this year Bayern beat Barcelona 3-0. In 2020, the German champions thrashed the La Liga outfit 8-2 on their way to the Champions League title.
