What a fantastic exhibition of the beautiful game! FC Bayern marched on to the last four of the Champions League after a 6-1 victory over FC Porto on Tuesday night. A memorable night for one and all - including the statisticians. bring you the facts and stats on the quarter-final tie:

1 - For the first time on the European stage, FC Bayern managed to turn round a first leg defeat by more than one goal in Munich.

3 - Jérôme Boateng is the most attacking defender in this Champions League campaign. His goal to make it 2-0 against Porto was his third this term - and he has also provided three assists.

4 - FC Bayern are in the Champions League semi-finals for a fourth time in succession - a club record! Only Barcelona have had a longer run in the history of Europe's premier club competition (six semi-finals from 2008 to 2013). Real Madrid could make it to the last four for the fifth time on the trot against local rivals Atletico on Wednesday.

22 - 3-0 (27th minute), 5-0 (40) - Robert Lewandowski bagged a brace against Porto, his first in an FCB shirt in the Champions League. He netted his first goal in the competition in October 2011 - since then only Cristiano Ronaldo (46) and Lionel Messi (36) have scored more Champions League goals than Lewandowski (22).

27 - A deflected shot from Thomas Müller on Tuesday night makes him the most successful German goalscorer in the Champions League. His strike to make it 4-0 (36) was his 27^th^ overall in the competition. That takes him past Mario Gomez (26). Then come Michael Ballack (16), Miroslav Klose (14) and Carsten Jancker (13).

30 - FC Bayern have already scored 30 goals in the current Champions League campaign - more than any other team. FC Porto are next with 24 goals ahead of the two Spanish clubs still in the competition, Barcelona (23) and Real Madrid (21). FC Bayern are just one goal short of equalling the club record of 31 set in 2012/13.

100 - The brilliant display against Porto was special for Pep Guardiola and not only because of the result on the night. The Catalan coach clocked up a century of appearances on the FC Bayern bench. He has an impressive record: 76 wins, 12 draws and just 11 defeats. He also continues another successful run: he has never been knocked out of the Champions League before the semi-finals as a coach.

350 - A cross from the left and Thiago Alcantara is at the near post to power the ball into the back of the net with his head - the opener against FC Porto on 14 minutes was goal number 350 for FC Bayern in the Champions League. It was a collector's item for Thiago. His previous headed goal was three years ago in April 2012 (when he was still playing for Barça).

433 - The consolation goal for the Portuguese side scored by Jackson Martínez on 73 minutes was the first conceded by FC Bayern in front of a home crowd in the current Champions League season. FCB had gone 433 minutes without conceding at the Allianz Arena.
