Last Updated at 9:40 pm, April 3rd 2012

  1. 90+2

    It's all over, and Bayern ease into the semi-final where they almost certainly face Real Madrid. Those should be classics which this never was. Can Bayern secure a final on home turf? Join us again to find out.

  2. 90+1

    Ribery tries to play in Gomez as Bayern launch one last attack.

  3. 89

    Time ticking away. Little happening now.

  4. 88

    Mandanda spills the corner, but Tymoshchuk's goalbound effort is blocked and Marseille clear.

  5. 87

    Corner to Bayern.

  6. 86

    Rafinha calmly chests the ball back to Neuer to end a half-hearted Marseille attack.

  7. 84

    Ribery the only player still playing at full pace now as he desperately seeks a goal against his former side to cap off an impressive display.

  8. 83

    Benoit Cheyrou injects some life into the attack, spinning away from two challenges before releasing Cesar Azpilicueta. Who is flagged offside.

  9. 82

    Marseille passing the ball around in midfield. Bayern pretty content to let them.

  10. 80

    Rare attack from Marseille, but there's no real urgency about it and - rather like this match - it fizzles out.

  11. 78

    Bayern having all of the ball now. There are further goals in this for them tonight if they want them.

  12. 76

    Gomez almost scores with his first touch but can't quite get on the end of a low cross.

  13. 74

    No hat-trick for Olic as he makes way for Mario Gomez. Which hardly makes things easier for the French side. Andre-Pierre Gignac replaces Brandao.

  14. 72

    Ribery leads another Bayern attack but can't find a cross.

  15. 70

    A few misplaced passes creeping in from both sides now as the intensity drops with everyone knowing how this tie will end.

  16. 68

    Strange moment here. Ribery passes the ball down the left for Olic, who knows he's offside so stands with his arms raised and makes no attempt to play the ball. Ribery then runs on to his own pass, only to be denied by the linesman's flag. The grey areas of the interfering with play interpretation claim another victim.

  17. 67

    Daniel Pranjic replaces Kroos.

  18. 66

    Bad miss from Brandao, who heads over from close range after good work from Ayew.

  19. 65

    Poor free-kick from Valbuena on the right sails straight out of play for a goal-kick.

  20. 64

    Alaba picks up a booking. He's not one of those walking the yellow-card-tightrope tonight.

  21. 63

    Charles Kabore replaces Remy. Not had his best night.

  22. 61

    Kroos rifles goalwards from 25 yards, but the ball whistles the wrong side of the upright. Mandanda had given that one up.

  23. 59

    Mbia's slip inside the Marseille penalty box almost lets Bayern in, but he recovers in time to get the ball clear.

  24. 58

    Andre Ayew fashions a shooting chance on the edge of the Bayern box, but his reluctance to use his right foot costs him.

  25. 57

    Quiet spell in the game now after a couple of promising situations for each side at the start of the half.

  26. 54

    Mandanda claims the corner and looks for a quick release ball to Remy, but it doesn't come off.

  27. 53

    Mandanda makes another fine save to deny Ribery from close range.

  28. 52

    Ribery involved again, this time releasing Rafinha on the right, whose low cross looks set to give Olic a third tap-in before being smuggled behind for a corner.

  29. 51

    Ribery finds his way into the Marseille area again, but this time tries to beat one man too many and the chance is lost.

  30. 49

    Bayern's defending hasn't been entirely convincing tonight, and once again Marseille carve out a chance but lack the composure to take full advantage.

  31. 47

    Another strong run from Ribery down the left, but two Marseille defenders manage to snuff out the threat.

  32. 46

    Second half under way in Munich.

  33. 45+1

    And there goes the half-time whistle. Marseille have, to their credit, looked to attack in the search of the goals they needed to get back in the tie but it's left them oh so vulnerable to Bayern's attacking might. Morel's miss just seconds before Olic opened the scoring on the night was Marseille's chance to make this nervy for the Germans.

  34. 45+1

    We're into a solitary minute of added time at the end of an entertaining first half in which Bayern have further strengthened their already powerful grip on this tie.

  35. 45

    Mathieu Valbuena goes down theatrically under a challenge from Ribery before rolling around dramatically. Ribery won the ball cleanly, and the referee isn't interested in the Marseille man's antics.

  36. 44

    Kroos' corner is headed clear.

  37. 43

    Ribery switches to the right and jinks his way into the penalty area with quick feet and superb close control before his shot is deflected behind for a corner.

  38. 41

    Chance for Ribery to lead a breakaway, but he plays the ball out of play with Mbia down after a clash. He's soon back to his feet.

  39. 40

    The free-kick is swung in to the Bayern box, where Neuer is on hand to punch decisively clear.

  40. 39

    Free-kick for Marseille on the right as Ribery fouls Mbia.

  41. 39

    It's Muller who makes way as Rafinha comes off the bench. Muller is one of the players who would've missed the first leg against Real Madrid with a booking tonight, but was holding his leg as he came off.

  42. 38

    Mbia's picked up a caution. He misses the next game...

  43. 38

    Looks like Bayern are lining up a substitution. Don't know if that's tactical ro because of an injury.

  44. 37

    GOAL - OLIC! Another fast break leads to a Bayern goal. Ribery leads the drive from deep in his own half before releasing the overlapping David Alaba, who coolly plays the ball across the six-yard box for Olic to double his tally. Cue Seven Nation Army.

  45. 35

    Lahm almost playing as a right-winger in this first half, but Tymoshchuk can't find him on this occasion.

  46. 33

    Bayern again looking to find a way through down the right, but Nicolas N'Koulou coolly plays his way out of trouble.

  47. 32

    Shots raining in on the Marseille goal now as Kroos hammers a 20-yard drive into the upright with Mandanda this time beaten.

  48. 30

    Mandanda to the rescue again! He manages to get the ball up and over the bar as a Thomas Muller header is powered towards goal from Kroos' corner.

  49. 29

    Another fine save from Mandanda, this time after his own player diverts a cross towards goal. Had to be alert to tip the ball round the post.

  50. 29

    There's no way this game ends 1-0. Marseille are committing so many bodies forward that they are inevitably leaving gaping holes at the back.

  51. 28

    Busy couple of minutes for Mandanda, who makes a smart save from close-range after neat interplay on the edge of the box - inevitably involving Ribery - plays in Olic.

  52. 27

    Stunning 20-yard volley from Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, but Mandanda again on hand to keep the scoreline down to 1-0 on the night.

  53. 26

    Good effort from Kroos, but Steve Mandanda beats it away to safety.

  54. 25

    Smart turn-and-shot on the edge of the box from Ribery, but he skews his effort high and wide.

  55. 23

    Brandao drags a shot wide of the target from 20 yards. Marseille have had plenty of opportunities in the first quarter of this game.

  56. 22

    Overambitious effort from Olic, who raises an apologetic hand to his team-mates after slapping a shot high over the bar when he had colleagues well placed.

  57. 21

    Bayern waste the free-kick.

  58. 21

    Another free-kick for Bayern wide on the left.

  59. 19

    Bayern's turn to hurry forward now as Lahm once again surges down the right and wins a corner.

  60. 18

    The corner comes to nothing.

  61. 17

    Better effort this time from Mbia, who forces Neuer into a spectacular save to tip the ball over the bar. The ease with which Marseille are making chances must be a concern for Bayern ahead of a semi-final against Real Madrid.

  62. 16

    Stephane Mbia fires high over the bar. Fair play to Marseille, they're pouring forward again after that killer Bayern goal.

  63. 15

    The corner comes to nothing.

  64. 15

    Marseille win a corner on the left-hand side.

  65. 14

    Big difference between 2-1 and 3-0. Marseille really should've halved their deficit but couldnow face a long old evening.

  66. 12

    GOAL - OLIC! Marseille pay for their profligacy instantly as Ribery's low cross is stabbed home from six yards by Ivica Olic to extend Bayern's lead.

  67. 12

    Great chance for Marseille as the ball breaks to Jeremy Morel completely unmarked 12 yards from goal, but his sidefoot strike is kept out by the legs of Neuer. Really should've done better.

  68. 11

    Marseille look to play some intricate triangles on the right-hand side. It doesn't work out.

  69. 9

    Loic Remy holds the ball up well inside the Bayern penalty box, holding off Holger Badstuber before pivoting and going for goal. Tame shot, though, and easy for Manuel Neuer.

  70. 8

    Philipp Lahm given the freedom of the right flank, and he surges forward before playing in a disappointing low cross.

  71. 8

    Jerome Boateng gets his head to the cross but can't keep the ball down.

  72. 7

    Ribery on the ball again, and is only prevented from surging into the box by a clumsy challenge. Free-kick out on the left for Bayern.

  73. 7

    Kroos looks to release Ribery down the left, but just asks a bit too much of the Frenchman. He's up for this one, though, is Ribery.

  74. 6

    Nice spell of passing football from the hosts.

  75. 5

    Ribery takes on two Marseille defenders and comes off second best. He thinks he should have a corner for his efforts, but the Norwegian official - and evidence of TV replays - disagrees.

  76. 4

    Bayern pushing forward in the early stages here, looking for a third goal in the tie that would surely kill off any slender hopes Dider Deschamps' side may have.

  77. 2

    Toni Kroos fires way over the bar from the edge of the box, but he got into the position to shoot far too easily for Marseille's liking. Kroos is one of four Bayern Munich players in the starting XI a booking away from suspension.

  78. 2

    An early forward foray from Franck Ribery comes to nothing.

  79. 1

    Marseille tonight need to do something that no side has ever done in the Champions League: go away from home and overturn a two-goal deficit.

  80. 1

    Marseille get us under way at the Allianz Arena.
