Sports, Champions League football: Bayern thrash Basel 7-0

MUNICH, GERMANY – Bayern Munich put on a fine display of controlled attacking football to thrash Basel 7-0 in the second leg of their Champions League match 13 March. Basel FC, clear leaders in the Swiss Super league, had beaten Manchester United to reach the knock-out and won the first leg against Bayern 1-0. In the return leg they could do nothing to stop the rampant Bavarian team, which led 3-0 at half-time and then accelerated away, with Ribéry, Robben and Gomez doing the damage.

In the other match Marseille lost to Inter Milan  2-1  but go through to the next round thanks to their 1-0 win in the first leg.
