Barcelona were staring at Champions League humiliation as they went into half-time trailing Bayern Munich 4-1 in Lisbon.
Thomas Muller scored twice, with Ivan Perisic and Serge Gnabry also on target, and Barcelona's consolation came from a Bayern player too, with David Alaba netting an early own goal.
The statistics were piling up against Quique Setien's men as their night went from bad to worse, seemingly destined to tumble out at the quarter-final stage.
Not even Lionel Messi could keep the Camp Nou giants in the game, with Barcelona a defensive shambles.
Here is a look at the first half, using Opta data to show where the game was being won and lost.
1 - Barcelona became the first team to ship four goals in the first half of a Champions League knockout game since Porto conceded five to Bayern in April 2015, in the second leg of a quarter-final.
4 - Barcelona conceded four goals in the first half of a Champions League match for the first time.
6 - Thomas Muller has now scored more goals in the Champions League against Barcelona than any other player. His fifth and sixth came before the break, meaning Muller has overtaken Andriy Shevchenko, who netted five in his career against Barca. This is just Muller's fifth appearance against Barcelona in the competition.
23 - Muller's double took him to 23 career goals in the Champions League knockout stages, and he stands third on that list behind Cristiano Ronaldo (67) and Lionel Messi (47).
29 - Barcelona's oldest XI for a Champions League match was picked apart. Their average age was 29 years and 329 days, and Barca looked like veterans as they were repeatedly carved open.
31 - Bayern's fourth goal arrived in the 31st minute, making it the earliest point of a Champions League knockout game by which a team has scored four.
