Bernardo Silva netted two first-half goals in the space of 15 minutes to give City a 3-1 aggregate lead.
Second-half goals from Manuel Akanji and Julian Alvarez completed the rout.
It was a masterful performance from City, who will further cement their status as the best team in world football if they defeat Inter Milan in the Champions League final on June 10.
City are also poised to win the Premier League title after overtaking Arsenal, and head into the FA Cup final againstManchester Unitedon June 3 as firm favourites.
An historic treble now appears to be a very real possibility for Guardiola and his players.
Guardiola hasn’t lifted the Champions League trophy since 2011, when his iconic Barcelona side recorded a convincing 3-1 victory over Sir Alex Ferguson’s Man Utd at Wembley.
