MOST COMMENTED

[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: Wednesday] For all of 22 seconds, Manchester United was ahead. A thunderbolt from Patrice Evra gave United a 1-0 lead at Bayern Munich in the 57th minute of the second leg their UEFA Champions League series, but the Frenchman's poor defending  contributed to Mario Mandzukic's equalizer less than a minute later, and the defending champion went on to win, 3-1 (4-2 on aggregate). In Madrid, an early goal from Koke gave Atletico a 1-0 win that was enough to eliminate Barcelona following their 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou.

After the Bayern equalizer, Dutchman Arjen Robben came to life and set up Thomas Mueller for the go-ahead goal in the 68th minute and added the third goal himself after a patented run from the right side into the middle and shot that deflected off a United defender and gave goalie David de Gea no chance.

The win put Atletico into the semifinals of Europe's most important competition for the first time in 40 years and ended Barca's record string of six straight appearances in the final four.
