It would certainly require and almighty, and perhaps a touch from the almighty, to even fathom how Bayern could get back into this with the Germans now needing to score five goals in the second half if they want to qualify for the final on an unlikely 6-5 aggregate scoreline.

But Neymar quashed any of those hopes with a goal just eight minutes later and this one almost definitely seals it for the Catalans.
