BAYERN Munich eased through to the last four of the Champions League by winning in Turin last night to complete a convincing aggregate victory over ­Juventus.

Scorers: Bayern - Mandzukic 64, Pizarro 90

Bayern win 4 - 0 on aggregate

Two goals up from the first leg at the Allianz Arena, Mario Mandzukic’s 64th-minute goal finished the tie before substitute Claudio Pizarro added further gloss in stoppage time.

Buoyed by winning their 23rd Bundesliga title at the weekend, Bayern were not ruffled by the home side’s fast start and took control of the game.

Bayern created their first opportunity after 14 minutes when a Bastian Schweinsteiger free kick was met by Daniel van Buyten, but his header fell wide.

Eight minutes after the interval the German champions were ahead. A curling Schweinsteiger delivery was met by Javi Martinez at the far post and, although Gianluigi Buffon saved his attempt, Mandzukic headed home to effectively end the tie.

Pizarro then stroked home in stoppage time.
