Thomas Muller had a pretty good night in the Champions League earlier this week.

Muller netted the fourth goal in his team's 6-1 demolition of Porto in their second-leg qualifier at the Allianz Arena to secure their place in the last four, and also became the leading German goalscorer in the competition.

Making history

The 25-year-old Germany international netted his 27th Champions League goal, taking him past former team-mate Mario Gomez in the rankings.

It was a dominant performance from Pep Guardiola’s side, who had to overturn a two-goal deficit from the first leg after losing 3-1 in Portugal.

Dominant

But five first half goals from Thiago Alcantara, Jerome Boateng, a Robert Lewandowski double and Muller ensured Bayern's safe passage into the semi-final. Xabi Alonso added a second-half free-kick, to ensure wild celebrations from the Bayern crowd at the final whistle.

Wild celebrations

After the match the Bayern Munich players took to the field and just as is custom in Germany, celebrated with their home support. But Muller took things a step further and scaled the fence and joined the first row of fans and began to lead the chants.

He took a microphone and stirred the crowd into a frenzy as he led the singing, with Bayern’s adoring fans chanting along with the 25-year-old.

It was an apt way to end a fantastic night of Champions League football, and Bayern Munich will be watching on curiously to see who will be their opponents in the semi-finals when the draw is made today.
