Bayern breezes past Juve into UCL semis
Bayern Munich eased through to the last four of the Champions League by winning 2-0 in Turin to complete a convincing 4-0 aggregate victory over Juventus.
Buoyed by winning their 23rd Bundesliga title at the weekend, the Bavarians were not ruffled by the home side's fast start and replied in kind before taking control of the game.
Serie A leader Juve headed into the match on the back of a weekend victory over Pescara, with its reverse in Germany its only defeat in the last nine.
Juventus was without suspended midfielder Arturo Vidal as Paul Pogba was promoted from the bench in his place, while home coach Antonio Conte gave Kwadwo Asamoah the nod ahead of Federico Peluso on the left wing.
Mario Mandzukic picked up a harsh early booking for kicking Giorgio Chiellini's shin when competing for a 50-50 to ensure he would miss the first leg of its semifinal.
Bayern's Thomas Muller then half-volleyed wide from 20 yards as the play went from one end to the other.
Bayern was starting to control possession and Arjen Robben hit the post after 57 minutes from the edge of the area as the Juventus back-line dropped deep.
And eight minutes later the German champions were ahead. A curling Schweinsteiger delivery was met by Martinez at the far post and, although Buffon saved his attempt, Mandzukic was in the right place to head home.
And Pizarro was on hand in stoppage time to stroke home from close range as Bayern were worthy winners.
