Champions League: Bayern v Manchester United


Bayern Munich will hope to put their recent struggles against English visitors behind them when they host Manchester United in the second leg of their Uefa Champions League quarterfinal on Wednesday. 

United have never won in Bavaria but David Moyes's visitors can take heart from a two-match winning streak on German soil, and the fact that Bayern failed to beat two other Premier League sides in Munich this season. 

For United supporters the sight of Bayern will always bring back memories of that heady night in May 1999 when Sir Alex Ferguson's team snatched the European Cup out of the Bavarian club's grasp. However, this is a Bayern side with a coach, Josep Guardiola, who got the better of United in not one, but two Champions League finals with Barcelona. 

The holders had their seven-game run of away victories in Europe ended by the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford – the first time they had failed to win the first leg of a European tie since a 1-0 loss at FC Basel 1893 in the 2011/12 round of 16. On that occasion, they won the return 7-0.
