Bayern Munich vs Manchester United 
Competition: UEFA Champions League - Quarter-finals: return-leg

When Bayern Munich drew 1:1 at the Old Trafford last week, they controlled and dominated the game, but had problems with Manchester's defensive tactics, created only a few goal-scoring opportunities. One of them used Bastian Schweinsteiger to strike the important away goal. He then got a red card in the 90th minute and will be suspended in the return leg as it will be Javi Martinez. With Thiago also a third defensive midfielder will be absent due to an injury, Pep Guardiola will therefore have to make some changes on Wednesday. Bayern Munich are already fixed as the upcoming German champions, had been unbeaten for the 53 games in Bundesliga, before they lost the derby in Augsburg 0:1 on Saturday.
Bayern Munich (4-1-4-1): Neuer; Alaba, Rafinha, Dante, Boateng; Lahm; Ribery, Gotze, Kroos, Robben; Mandzukic
Manchester United accepted to be outsiders at home last week, stood very deep around the penalty area and tried to hit their opponents on the counter attack. This tactics seemed to become successful when defender Nemanja Vidic headed the lead after 58 minutes. Manchester's wall did not hold though, Bayern's equaliser means that they will have to score at least one goal in Munich to progress. Still we can expect them to play similar tactics on Wednesday again. In the English Premier League Manchester are playing a terrible season, most probably won't qualify for the Champions League again, may not even make it to the Europa League. Striker Robie van Persie will miss the return-leg due to an injury, also forward Wayne Rooney might not be able to play.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Jones, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra; Fellaini, Carrick; Valencia, Kagawa, Welbeck; Rooney
