Bayern Munich reached the Champions League semi-finals after Croatia striker Ivica Olic netted both goals in a 2-0 win over Marseille in Tuesday's quarter-final second leg.

The Bavarians, who won 4-0 on aggregate, are now within touching distance of the final that Munich’s Allianz Arena will host on May 19 as they look to win the Champions League trophy for the second time and claim their fifth European Cup title overall.

The opening goal came on 13 minutes when Franck Ribery found space down the right wing and his cross was converted by Olic.

The 32-year-old was rewarded for his hard work with a second goal on 37 minutes after some fine play by Ribery allowed Austria’s David Alaba to fire in a cross for Olic to convert again.
