Champions League Preview: Manchester United v Bayern Munich, Tue 1st April, 19:45

Manchester United face their toughest test in the Champions League to date against Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich.

Arjen Robben sent Bayern through with a late goal the last time these two played.

In what is the most historic match-up in Champions League history, David Moyes has the opportunity to gloss over what has been a poor domestic campaign and win the hearts over of the United faithful, by progressing to the Champions League semi-finals. Bayern have already won the Bundesliga with seven games to spare and rested several first team players ahead of the first leg with United at the weekend.

“As players we don’t see ourselves as underdogs. We see ourselves as Manchester United playing at home in the Champions League.”

The last fixture between the two was the 09/10 Champions League quarter-final that Bayern progressed on away goals, as the overall aggregate was 4-4. Arjen Robben struck a 76th minute volley to make the scores 3-2 to United and send the Germans through, only to be beaten 2-0 by Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan in the final.
