UEFA Champions League: Man Utd v Bayern Munich Preview
Manchester United host title holders Bayern Munich tonight for the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.
The Red Devils have struggled in the Premier League this season under David Moyes management but they are still alive in the most prestigious club tournament of the world.
At this point, winning the Champions League trophy seems to be the only chance left for United to participate in Europe next year as they sit 7th in the Premier League table 6 points below 5th placed Everton and having played one more game.
First step towards that goal must be done tonight at Old Trafford as they face the most in-form side in actual football.
Bayern Munich have already won the Bundesliga this season setting up a new record as they clinched the title last week with 7 games to spare.
But Pep Guardiola’s men will now focus on a record nobody has ever accomplished yet: retaining the UEFA Champions League trophy.

United come from a comfortable 4-1 home victory against Aston Villa over the weekend but they know Bayern Munich will be a much more dangerous opposition.
Bayern were held by Hoffenheim 3-3 at the Allianz Arena last Saturday in a match they were leading 3-1 but the hang-over from celebrations must have played its part.
Manchester United will be without right-back Rafael (hamstring), Patrice Evra (suspended), Juan Mata (cup-tied) and striker Robin Van Persie (knee).
The Bavarians will miss out midfielder Thiago Alcantara (knee ligaments), Dante (suspended), Holger Badstuber (injured) and left-back Diego Contento (injured).
Elsewhere, Spanish La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid visit 2nd place Barcelona in the first leg of the all-Spanish Champions League quarter-final clash.
