Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has claimed that his team were 'close to perfection' against Barcelona.

The Bavarian giants defeated Tito Vilanova's side 4-0 in the Champions League semi-final this evening.

And the defender has insisted that it was at the back that they got the victory at Allianz Arena.

“Of course I can comprehend what happened,” he told uefa.com. “We have the potential to beat any team.

“It's well known that Barcelona have problems in the air.

“Defensively we were close to perfection, that was the key.”
