And there it is. The final whistle blows and Bayern have utterly dismantled Barcelona over two legs, adding three goals tonight to the four they scored in Munich last week. It's an all-German final at Wembley as Bayern reach their third final in four years.
Ribery and Mueller surge forward looking for number four, but the move breaks down on the edge of the Barcelona box.
Robben slips the ball in for the run of Rafinha, but the substitute right-back slices his shot wide.
Free-kick for Barcelona as they look for some scant consolation at the end of a chastening semi-final hammering.
That Pique booking will rule him out of the final, should Barcelona find the eight goals they need in the closing 10 minutes here.
GOAL - MUELLER! Total humiliation. Ribery again racing clear the left and this time he stands up his cross to the back post where Mueller rises above Adriano to nod home from close range.
With the tie well and truly over, Bayern move to protect another player at risk of suspension as Tymoschuk replaces Martinez.
OWN GOAL - PIQUE! Barcelona ripped open by Bayern Munich as Dani Alves fails to track Ribery's run. He's found by a smart pass and then fires a low cross that Pique can only divert into his own net off his knee as he tries to prevent Mandzukic having a tap-in.
Another Bayern counter-attack sees Robben clear once more, but this time he's tackled just as he looks to pull the trigger after cutting inside on to that left foot.
Schweinsteiger, who could've missed the final had be got booked here, is withdrawn from the action and replaced by Gustavo.
The last team to win both legs of a European knockout tie against Barcelona was, I'm reliably informed, Dundee United in 1987. Don't blame me if that's wrong, though.
Lovely play from Bayern down the right as Mandzukic and Lahm combine to tee up Mueller, but his shot is blocked.
Barcelona committing plenty of men forward in each attack now, but they can't find a way through the well-organised Bayern backline. The visitors are going to get plenty more chances on the break, but can't capitalise this timeas Ribery is dispossessed.
Another chance for Bayern, but Robeen can't make sufficient contact with Ribery's left-wing cross as he tries to guide the ball in with his left foot.
GOAL - ROBBEN! All over now. Bayern attack again as Alaba spreads the play to Robben out on the right. He's allowed to cut in onto his left foot by Adriano and, as so often before, that proves a poor decision as Robben curls the ball beyond Valdes.
Bayern on the attack early in the seconc half. Schweinsteiger wins a free-kick wide on the right after being tripped by Song.
So far, so good for Bayern. Lahm, Boateng and Van Buyten have largely kept Barcelona at bay, with Neuer on hand when required. Robben, Mueller and Mandzukic have all offered glimpses of the threat Bayern pose on the break.
Pedro's heavy touch sees the ball bounce behind for a Bayern goal-kick. Neuer again takes his time over it.
A high cross from Dani Alves is easy for Neuer. He's been the busier keeper, but is yet to be seriously tested.
A path suddenly opens up for Adriano after a midfield interception and he sprints forward before hitting a tame shot straight at Neuer.
Dani Alves can't find a way past Ribery, and Mandzukic gets back to help crowd out the flying full-back.
Iniesta gets away down the left, but Martinez is soon back on duty to hold him off and shepherd the ball out of play.
Iniesta gets away from Martinez for the first time, but opts to shoot from an unpromising position when there were other options available. His effort is blocked.
Barcelona just starting to put Bayern under a bit more pressure, but the visitors look a threat on the break.
Chance for Xavi, but he volleys over the bar from the middle of the Bayern box after the ball breaks kindly.
First real work for either keeper as a back-pedalling Neuer has to tip Pedro's long-range strike over the bar.
Approaching the midway point of the first half, and it's still as you were. Bayern look capable of extending their aggregate lead.
Fabregas jinks into the Bayern penalty area, but he's dispossessed by a combination of Ribery and Boateng.
Lovely move from Bayern ends with Schweinsteiger teeing up Lahm, but again a crucial tackle from Pique at the last snuffs out the threat. Bayern have stretched Barca a couple of times, though, in these opening 20 minutes.
The offside flag goes up against Mandzukic after his header tees up Ribery, who in any case scuffs his shot.
Xavi's crossfield pass sets Dani Alves away down the right, but his cross is behind the onrushing Fabregas and Lahm clears.
Breathless couple of minutes there with both sides breaking smartly, but we still await the first meaningful effort on goal.
A training-ground routine goes awry and Bayern launch a break of their own in which a cross is just too high for the unmarked Mandzukic.
Robben times his run perfectly and looks to be set clear on the Barcelona goal, but he checks back onto his left foot which allows Pique to get back and make a crucial tackle. Bracelona break at pace and win a corner.
The free-kick comes to nothing. Neuer takes his time over the goal-kick, to the audible displeasure of the home fans.
Villa's backheel fails to come off and Van Buyten clears. Adriano wins a free-kick off Robben, though, to allow Barca to keep the pressure on.
Wonderful, lightning-quick counter-attack from Bayern after Villa is dispossessed ends with Lahm's shot blocked. Bright start from the visitors. They're certainly not sitting on their lead, but looking for the away goal that surely kills the tie off.
Pedro looks to break down the left for Barca but over-runs the ball and Bayern are back in possession.
Robben and Mueller combine to play in Mandzukic, but Dani Alves gets across. He mishits his backpass and Barca are lucky to escape when Valdes dives and picks the ball up. Should've been a free-kick for Bayern.
Jacques: 'There is no way that Messi would be on the bench unless he was not fully fit. They have pretty much guaranteed the league, and so the only reason not to start him would be an injury.'
Yahya: 'I do think Barcelona are indicating they have lost the tie, by dropping Messi. Personally I think it will be 0-0 tonight, simply because Munich have probably the best defense in Europe.'
Timal: 'Barca never can over come this 4-0 against Bayern. But they can beat Bayern. I think 3-1 or 4-1 for Barca. Ribery & Messi will score.'
Messi only on the bench; does that snuff out any small chance Barcelona may have had? Mails to Dave.Tickner@bskyb.com
The Barcelona starting team is: Valdes, Alves, Pique, Bartra, Adriano, Xavi, Song, Iniesta, Villa, Fabregas, Pedro. So that means Lionel Messi is on the bench.
The Bayern Munich starting team is: Neuer, Lahm, Boateng, Van Buyten, Alaba, Martinez, Schweinsteiger, Robben, Muller, Ribery, Mandzukic.
Robbie: 'I think Barca will win the match, but not sure on score. I'm think Bayern will go out to get the away goal and then keep Barcelona as high up the pitch as they can! Can't see Barca coming back against a very strong Bayern team! 2-1 is a guess but it's too tough to call!'
Chris Green: 'I have been looking forward to this game all week. It's going to be a cracker and I'm sure there will be plenty of goals in this one. Although Barcelona got thrashed in the first leg, I still think they have a chance of getting to London if they pull off a remarkable performance this evening. If their fans get behind the team and back them all the way, then anything is possible, but they must remember that if Bayern Munich score the first goal, it's all over. Bayern Munich are a hard team to break down, whether you are playing them home or away, but one thing is for sure, if Barcelona score first, there is every possibility that they could go on and score the four goals they need.'
