MUNICH - Rampant Bayern Munich humbled 10-man Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0 on Wednesday to ease into the Champions League quarter-finals and equal the biggest win in the competition's knockout stages.

After a goalless first leg it was expected to be a close game but it turned into a stroll for the five-times European champions thanks to the early dismissal of Oleksandr Kucher.

Bayern have now won all four home games in Europe this season, scoring 13 goals and conceding none as they set their sights on a sixth European crown.

"I always had faith with my players and I am very happy with their game tonight," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, whose team equalled their 7-0 win over Basel in 2012, told reporters.

"People said it may be a tricky game but my players are there for the big moments.

"Obviously the red card changed things but my players perfectly executed our game plan. Sometimes it is not that easy against 10."
