Guardiola congratulates 'dominant' Bayern after Shakhtar thrashing

The Spaniard watched his side score seven goals on Wednesday as it cruised into the Champions League quarterfinals.

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola congratulated his players on a "dominant" display after they thrashed Shakhtar Donetsk 7-0 in the second leg of their last-16 Champions League tie.

After the first leg ended 0-0 in Ukraine, the visiting side was given the near impossible task to overcome on Wednesday following the dismissal of Olexandr Kucher after just three minutes for a foul on Mario Gotze inside the penalty area.

The red card was the quickest in the competition's history and Bayern took full advantage, with Thomas Muller converting the resulting spot kick and later adding a second as the home side ran riot.

Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery, Holger Badstuber, Robert Lewandowski and Gotze all found the back of the net to confirm Bayern's place in the quarterfinals with the minimum of fuss and win the praise of Guardiola.

"We are very pleased," admitted the Spaniard after the game. "We deserved the win. The players did fantastically.

"Of course it is a little easier against 10 men. But from the beginning we could see that the team was alert. Congratulations to the team, we dominated the game."

It is the second time Bayern has scored seven goals in a Champions League game this season following a stunning 7-1 win away to Roma in the group stage back in October.
