    • Bayern Munich
    • FC Basel
    • 21:37 Thanks for joining us this evening!
    • 90'+2 FULL TIME... That's it, Bayern 7-0 Basel. A devastating display from the German side to progress to the quarter-finals!
    • 90' Two minutes of added time to be played...
    • 88' Tymoshchuk fancies getting in on the goalscoring action but he'll have to do better than that as he sends an effort well over.
    • 85' Safe to say there's little to no fight left in Basel. Harsh on the Swiss champions to go out like this after the way they've played in this year's Champions League, but Bayern have been far superior this evening.
    • 82' Robben then leaves the pitch to a standing ovation as Tymoshchuk comes on.
    • 82' Assist from Schweinsteiger, who times and weights his through ball to perfection. Robben rounds the 'keeper and slots home.
    • 81' GOAL FOR BAYERN! And that is 7-0. Robben gets his second of the night.
    • 79' Zoua replaces Shaqiri for Basel.
    • 79' Boateng is booked for handball but it wasn't! Tough break.
    • 78' Ribery goes off to a standing ovation after a superb display to be replaced by Pranjic.
    • 77' Nice play from Basel as Stocker battles to the by-line and stands a nice cross up for the on-rushing Frei, but his header is wide.
    • 74' Cabral is booked for a foul and Bayern have a free-kick on the right, which Robben curls through the area but no-one can get a meaningful touch on it.
    • 71' Robben tries an audacious volley from 25 yards, but he never got over the top of the ball.
    • 70' Degen replaces Steinhofer for Basel, and Schweinsteiger comes on in place of Muller for Bayern.
    • 68' Another fantastic assist from Ribery as he beats Steinhofer to get to the by-line and cut the ball back for a waiting Gomez, who gratefully slams the ball into the roof of the net with a sweet finish. The scorer acknowledges the input of his provider. Superb play.
    • 67' GOAL FOR BAYERN! Gomez again! Four for the forward this evening. Bayern 6-0 Basel!
    • 66' Neuer having to work a bit now as Streller gets a shot in which the Bayern 'keeper stops.
    • 64' Alex Frei has a goal disallowed. Looked like it was for handball by Stocker as he chested the ball down to lay it off. It wasn't. Nothing going the way of Basel tonight.
    • 63' Change for Basel... Stocker comes on for Fabian Frei.
    • 62' Delightful assist from Ribery who hangs a delicious dinked cross from the left perfectly for Gomez, who has a straightforward header for his hat-trick!
    • 61' GOAL FOR BAYERN! Gomez completes his hat-trick! Bayern 5-0 Basel...
    • 60' Streller booked for a late one on Badstuber...
    • 59' Third corner in a row for Bayern... Robben whips it in, the ball is cleared but Muller comes back and has a shot saved by Sommer.
    • 57' Gomez tests Sommer at his near post with a snap shot but the 'keeper is well switched on. Corner Bayern, turned behind for another...
    • 55' Bayern pour forward again but this time the offside flag denies them another chance.
    • 53' Neuer touches the ball for what must be the third time this game as he gathers a cross...
    • 51' After a promising start to the half from Basel the visitors are dealt what is likely to be the killer blow as far as this tie is concerned. Ribery gets down the left, curls in a near-post cross at waist height and Gomez turns in a fantastic effort past Sommer.
    • 50' GOAL FOR BAYERN! Gomez gets his second and Bayern's fourth of the evening! Bayern 4-0 Basel.
    • 47' Basel fast and fiery out of the blocks! A corner for the Swiss side after an urgent start to the half...
    • 46' KICK OFF... The second half is on... How will Basel respond?!
    • 45'+2 HALF TIME. And there it is. Bayern lead 3-0 at the break and are 3-1 up on aggregate after a dominant first half.
    • 45'+2 Bayern smell blood! They're pushing right up to the half time whistle, which is now imminent...
    • 45' Devastating few minutes from Bayern... A free-kick to the far post is sent back across the face of goal and Gomez is there for the simplest of finishes. Again, shocking defending from Basel. Bayern now fully in control of this game and the tie...
    • 44' GOAL FOR BAYERN! Gomez with a tap-in as Bayern go 3-0 up!!
    • 43' Robben does well to keep the ball in on the right, then has the time to whip in a near-post cross which Muller sprints across his marker to meet and guide past Sommer with a lovely touch. Terrible marking from the Basel defence...
    • 42' GOAL FOR BAYERN! Super finish from Muller! Bayern go 2-0 up and lead the tie!
    • 40' Just over from Basel! Alex Frei races to the far post to meet a cross and slides in to catch the ball on the half volley. Tight angle and a difficult one to get in, but he made an excellent attempt.
    • 39' Sommer comes and punches clear! He had to there, otherwise Gomez was going to launch a header at his goal...
    • 37' That is not far off!! Bayern break forward and Kroos hits an absolute bullet of a shot which keeps rising and just clears the crossbar!
    • 36' Shaqiri wins a corner out of Alaba as Basel continue to press... Neuer gathers the delivery again.
    • 35' Basel starting to get their passes flowing and maintaining possession too. Steinhofer lofts a high ball forward for Streller which the forward gets a head on, but he can't direct his effort on target. Better and more promising from Basel nevertheless...
    • 34' Alex Frei takes the corner but his high delivery doesn't have the required pace to cause any problems and Neuer, who's had nothing to do so far this evening, collects easily.
    • 33' Streller twists and turns and wins Basel a corner as the visitors get a chance to test Bayern's defence...
    • 31' Bayern build again from midfield and eventually it's Ribery who drives forward and gets the shot off. It's off target and dragged wide, but Bayern continue to enjoy the Lion's share of possession...
    • 29' Basel unable to string their passes together properly on the odd occasion that they do get forward...
    • 28' Muller sends in a low, drilled cross from the right which Sommer gets low to smother. It remains all Bayern...
    • 27' Kroos sends a corner in which Robben tries an audacious volley from, but mis-times his effort.
    • 24' Cabral dumps Gomez on the turf with a firm challenge in midfield. Bayern appeal, but it's not given.
    • 22' SAVE FROM SOMMER! Great reaction stop from the Basel 'keeper to claw the ball away as Bayern almost score from the corner. Muller the man denied...
    • 21' Intricate play from Ribery and the opening doesn't quite come after more great play from Robben. Corner Bayern...
    • 19' Alaba gets a weak volley off after a nice bit of link-up play between Robben and Ribery allows the latter to get another cross in. Bayern dominating...
    • 18' Lahm dances down the right and floats a cross in. Gomez is there but just can't force a header in. The chances are flowing for Bayern...
    • 16' Ribery causing problems down the left for Basel with some forceful running. This time his cross is cleared.
    • 14' Cabral is strong in midfield to stop Ribery with a strong challenge and deny Bayern another break. They had numbers there too, the home side...
    • 12' Bayern are on fire! Gomez gets in down the left and fires a shot straight at Sommer. Basel well and truly rocked by that goal and now on the backfoot... And that chance comes moments after Gomez had another effort saved!
    • 11' Great finish from Robben after an original shot from Kroos was blocked and deflected into the scorer's path...
    • 10' GOAL FOR BAYERN! The ball breaks loose to Robben, who composes himself and fires low into the bottom-right corner to give Bayern a 1-0 lead, and level the tie!
    • 9' Ribery is stopped in his tracks with a three-man tackle effort from the Basel defence. Bayern come again...
    • 8' Basel get settled on the ball for a minute and Steinhofer tries a long diagonal ball to Streller, which is cut out.
    • 7 Bayern doing all the early pushing and again they force Basel's defence into action.
    • 6' First danger of the game, and it's Bayern pressing forward. Robben gets forward and first has a shot blocked by Dragovic, then as Bayern remount the Dutchman fires not far wide of Sommer's post.
    • 5' Basel get forward down the right but as the ball comes to Shaqiri play is stopped as there are two balls on the pitch.
    • 4' First corner of the game goes Bayern's way and Robben whips it in. Basel's defence are well organised though and the momentary threat is cleared.
    • 2' First foray forward comes from Bayern as Lahm is found in space on the right by Kroos and then fires in a cross. Sommer collects comfortably as the opening couple of minutes pass off without incident.
    • 1' KICK OFF... FC Basel get the game underway...
    • 19:44 All set, here we go...
    • 19:42 A quick fact as the teams emerge... Basel are unbeaten on their travels in Europe this season.
    • 19:40 Teams ready in the tunnel and all set to make their way out on to the pitch.
    • 19:38 I have a feeling this is going to be a stormer of a game this evening...
    • 19:34 About 10 minutes away from kick-off now...
    • 19:29 If Basel progress this evening it will the first time in the club's history that it has reached the quarter-final stage of the Champions League...
    • 19:25 Bayern have won 11 of their last 12 Champions League home games, with four straight victories racked up so far this season. Basel, as we know, have shown little fear of reputation or prestige on their route to this game, beating Manchester United along the way...
    • 19:21 And here's what Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes had to say: "Of course there is pressure but I have a very good feeling about the game. We need to attack but also keep a good balance, which means we also need to be careful and very concentrated in defence."
    • 19:19 Bayern coach Heiko Vogel in the lead-up to the game: "We are in a good position after the first game, but of course we are full of respect and we know it will be very difficult. I am confident because we have a lot of good players. If we score it will be even harder for Munich."
    • 19:16 Of course tonight will provide Bayern fans with a great opportunity to see Xherdan Shaqiri in the flesh. The outstanding Swiss youngster will join Bayern in the summer...
    • 19:14 However, Bayern have only managed to overcome a first-leg deficit in the Champions League era once before. That was back in the 2006/07 season when they reversed a 3-2 first-leg disadvantage against Real Madrid...
    • 19:12 So then, Bayern go into this game trailing 1-0 from the first leg. The hosts do have a 100% home record in three games against Swiss visitors...
    • 19:09 FC BASEL: Sommer, Steinhofer, Abraham, Dragovic, Park, Cabral, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Fabian Frei, Alexander Frei, Streller... Subs: Colomba, Degen, Huggel, Yapi Yapo, Stocker, Kovac, Zoua.
    • 19:07 BAYERN MUNICH: Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Badstuber, Alaba, Gustavo, Kroos, Robben, Ribery, Muller, Gomez... Subs: Butt, Petersen, Olic, Pranjic, Contento, Schweinsteiger, Tymoschuk.
    • 19:05 The teams are in so without furrther ado let's have a look at the line-ups before we build this Champions League last 16 second-leg tie up...
