HT

Man Utd 0-0 Bayern

What a chance that was for Welbeck! Why didnt he just shoot though instead of trying to lob the ball over Neuer?

Fellaini was useless in first half and just kept giving ball away,

Comfortable enough for United so far, Bayern with plenty of the ball but never looking like doing anything with it. The defence looks dodgy as well with simple long balls up the middle causing a few problems. Horrible miss from Wellbeck, hopefully they won't regret it

FT

Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich
1-0 Vidic 58'
1-1 Schweinsteiger 66’

Sent off - Schweinsteiger

Any comments on tonights 1-1 draw at Old Trafford?

Was it a fair result?

Is there still all to play for in the 2nd leg?

So Bayern take an away goal from Old Trafford ,so the onus is on United to be
more attacking in the next leg.

Disgraceful dive by Rooney ,which sees Schweinsteiger miss the next match
a tad unfair you would think , especially when we have seen Valencia escaping
a second yellow card after charging in with both feet leaving the floor.

I think the game at the Allianz will be much more open,they certainly wont be
able to play 9 men behind the ball in that encounter.

You have to give Manchester credit for that defensive performance.. they looked a lot more solid back there than I have expected..

Bayern will be very disappointed with their performance, but there were too many players who have been to shy to try for the goal.. the dominance was there, the final shot on the goal was not...

Schweinsteiger played a brilliant 2nd half though until he got sent off...Ribery was massive the whole time.. Robben with a lot of effort, but with no aim :lol: .. not the best performances from Alaba and Rafinha... Kroos and Muller have been invisible, that's why they got replaced... Boateng was very good and almost scored with a this huge hammer from 35m :lol: ...Martinez had not a good game.. he was very unsecure at times against Wellbeck...
I don't know why Guardiola often tries without Mandzukic.. this was another game where you immediately noticed his presence...

.. Neuer was worldclass :!: .. he's incredbibly good in intercepting long balls early and that save against Wellbeck was outstanding...


..as for the other side it doesn't make sense to go into player details a lot.. the Manchester United Defence was very solid, but there was little to no attacking effort.. only Wellbeck was dangerous at times in the first half... in the 2nd half it was Kagawa who carried them upfront but then the rest of the pack always bottled it big time... where was Rooney??
