Thomas Muller calls Bayern Munich’s 8-2 win over Barcelona even more dominant than Germany’s 7-1 win over Brazil in 2014

THOMAS MULLER claimed Bayern Munich's 8-2 win over Barcelona trumped Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in 2014.

The 30-year-old scored the opener during his side's historic 8-2 win over the Spanish giants.

Muller also broke the deadlock for Germany as they thrashed Brazil at the World Cup six years ago.

But he claimed after Friday's match that Bayern's victory was the more dominant of the two.

He said: "In 2014 against Brazil we never had the same control of the game.

"It was something that happened but let's not talk about it, let's talk about today.

"It was a special night, the result and the way we played was special.

"The best thing was to see that the players who come from substitutes have the same attitude and same joy.

"The important thing is to do what we want on the pitch and for everyone to go to the limit."

Before he added: "This is good, you can imagine how it feels, it was very special for us after this match.

"But we have to recover.

"It's a big statement but the next game, it starts 0-0. It doesn't matter."

The defeat has left Barcelona fans thinking Lionel Messi is set to hand in his transfer request.

Barcelona have allegedly already decided to sack struggling manager Quique Setien.

Former Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino has been tipped to take charge at the Nou Camp.

But Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has emerged as a shock contender for the role.
