Who said what after Bayern Munich humiliated Barcelona in Champions League

LISBON, Portugal, Aug 14Who said what after Bayern Munich humiliated Barcelona 8-2 in the Champions League quarter-finals on Friday:

— Thomas Mueller, who scored two of Bayern’s goals, on comparisons with Germany’s famous 7-1 rout of Brazil at the 2014 World Cup

“We knew it is never easy against Barcelona, but this is an unbelievable result. It’s hard to comprehend.”
