In the Champions League Quarter Finals at Manchester United held the supposed ‘Greatest team in the world’ Bayern Munich 1-1 at Old Trafford. It was a night to remember for the Old Trafford Faithful and it lead to some truly fantastic photos.
As expected the Bayern Munich fans were out in numbers. Usually a lively bunch today they were silenced by the crowd and the players!
The awe inspiring mosaic before the match set the tone. We are Manchester United and you are here at Old Trafford. Remember ’99?
Despite early possession domination by Bayern, United were the first to hit the back of the net with a sweet strike. The goal was disallowed as he had ‘fowled’ in the process.
The first clear cut chance of the game fell to Welbeck who attempted to chip Neuer. The Bayern GK stood up to the task. Danny was understandably disappointed.
De Gea made a great diving save to deny Robben a goal. The Spanish shot stopper has been fantastic this season and has become a fan favourite in the process. Dave Saves!
Jones watched as Manchester United Captain Nemanja Vidic stepped up to give the lead 1-0! A fantastic header by a fantastic captain!
The euphoria of the lad is short lived as Schweinsteiger levels the scores 1-1.
Bayern’s night is dampened when towards the end of the game the scorer of their only goal is also sent off with a second yellow after a foul on Rooney. To add to their misery Javi Martinez will not be available for the 2nd leg after picking up a yellow for a cynical foul on Chicha.
Honours were even as the two European powerhouses drew level at FT. A fair scoreline to what was another thrilling European encounter at Old Trafford!
I believe David Moyes deserves a lot of credit for the way he set out his team. His plan worked and we were solid defensively and looked a threat offensively. In the next post I will be analyzing how he did this and how he outfoxed the supposed tactical genius, Pep Guardiola.
