UEFA Champions League: In one of the latest matches of the UEFA Champions League, Manchester United won over Bayern Munich (Munchen) in score of 3-2. However, that wining was not enough. The two UEFA teams met for the second leg of the competition of their quarterfinals match on Tuesday, April 6, at Old Trafford in Stretford, Greater Manchester.
A lot expected that Wayne Rooney, Manchester United’s number 1 player, would not be able to join the game due to an ankle ligament tear that he suffered on March 30. However, surprisingly, he appeared in the list of starters who faced Manchester United’s game.
Manchester United began the match well and immediately took the lead against Bayern Munich in a score of 2-0 through goals accomplished by Darron Gibson and Nani. They managed to widen it to 3-0 with four minutes remaining on the clock before break.
However, Manchester United’s lead was halted when Ivica Olic scored two minutes before half time to setup a tense second frame as United led 3-1 (4-3 on aggregate).
Bayern Munich dominated the second half of the game. In the 75th minute, Arjen Robben volleyed brilliantly direct from a corner, after Carrick had released Bayern carelessly. Robben’s connection was perfect, arrowing into the far, bottom corner sending Bayern winning an away goal for Manchester United.
Overall, Manchester United managed to score 3 goals but Bayern Munich recovered with 2 of their own. The aggregate score for the 2 legs is 4-4. Bayern ousted Manchester United from the UEFA Champions League on away goals.
