Lewandowski celebrates scoring the sixth goal of the game

Shakhtar Donetsk lost a defender to the fastest red card in Champions League history and Bayern Munich cruised into the quarter-finals with a 7-0 victory last night, matching its biggest home win in Europe’s leading competition.

After a goalless first leg it was expected to be a close game but it turned into a stroll after the early dismissal of Oleksandr Kucher.

Thomas Mueller notched two goals, while Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery, Holger Badstuber, Robert Lewandowski and Mario Goetze added one apiece.

Kucher was sent off in the third minute for tripping Goetze, who was racing toward goal.

Mueller converted from the penalty spot in the fourth minute to get Bayern going. Boateng added the second in the 34th as Shakhtar failed to register a shot on goal in the first half.

Ribery and Mueller added goals early in the second half with Lewandowski and Goetze getting on the scoresheet late on.
