[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE]Manchester United may be struggling under new manager David Moyes, but that doesn't mean defending champion Bayern Munich is taking it lightly in their quarterfinal series that begins Tuesday.

UEFA Champions League:
Tuesday, April 1
Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich, 2:30 p.m. ET (Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes)
Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid, 2:30 p.m. ET (Fox Sports 2, Fox Soccer Plus)
Wednesday, April 2
Paris SG vs. Chelsea, 2:30 p.m. ET (Fox Sports 1, Fox Deportes)
Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund 2:30 p.m. ET (Fox Sports 2, Fox Soccer Plus)

"Manchester United are one of the world's best teams," Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiolasaid. "It doesn't matter what situation they're in right now. United have good players. These two games could be the best two performances of their season. They can beat us."

That would seem to be a longshot, given their current form. Bayern Munich has already clinched the Bundesliga title -- its 3-3 tie with Hoffenheim on Saturday snapped a 17-game winning streak in league play -- while United is seventh in the Premier League, needing to win the Champions League now just to return to the competition next season. Guardiola sympathized with Moyes' plight at United, where the Scotsman could be out after just one season as Alex Ferguson's successor.

"I could also be in his situation one day," he added. "Football is a fast-moving business these days."

Guardiola wouldn't comment directly on whether he was offered the United job.

"Maybe, I didn't understand if I received an offer," he joked in reference Ferguson's Scottish accent.
