Moyes: We Can Eliminate Bayern from UCL

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United coach David Moyes believes that his underdogs can eliminate defending European champion Bayern Munich from the UEFA Champions League following the teams’ 1-1 draw in the first leg of their quarterfinal series at Old Trafford. In fact, in his pos-game comments, the Scot indicated that last season’s treble winner was fortunate to leave with a draw.

"I am happy with the performance, but a bit disappointed with the result in the end," Moyes said, alluding to Danny Welbeck’s goal that was called back for a high foot, as well as his missed one-on-one with Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer. "We know we've got to score a goal in the second leg. We have to do something about it," he said, "But we've given ourselves a great opportunity. Regarding the second leg, the former Everton boss added: “We'll go toe-to-toe with them. Our best football has been in this competition, and we will need to show our best football when we go to Bayern next week."

Meanwhile, Bayern coach Pep Guardiola was less than pleased with the decision of referee Carlos Velasco Carbello to send off goalscorer Bastian Schweinsteiger for a second yellow-card offense for clipping United striker Wayne Rooney. Schweinsteiger’s sending-off means that Bayern’s midfield will be full of holes for the second-leg, with Thiago Alcantara already ruled out through injury and Javi Martinez also suspended for yellow-card accumulation.

When asked if he agreed with the Schweinsteiger decision, Guardiola said, "Absolutely not,” but the Spaniard was quick to add: “[Carbello] is a very good referee. He made a very, very good game, but it is unfair. To win the Champions League you have to solve and overcome everything. In football this kind of thing happens."
