First leg of the Champions League Quarter Finals at Old Trafford: Manchester will miss the man who made it possible for the Reds to qualify. After their defeat in Athens 0-2 against Olympiakos, Manchester United won at home 3-0. Van Persie scored all of Manchester goals.
Moyes team have won all of their games played at Old Trafford in this Champions League: 4-2 to Bayer Leverkusen, 1-0 to Real Sociedad, 1-0 to Shakthar and 3-0 to Olympiakos.
The reigning Champions League champions travel back to Manchester where they won their first away game in this competition this season: 3-1 to Manchester City after defeating CSKA Moscow at home. They won then all of their other games except the second leg at home with Manchester City. When they met Bayern were already qualified.
In the Round of 16 the Germans have eliminated Arsenal winning the first leg in London 2-0.
If Manchester won their last 4 home CL games, Bayern made it even better: they won their last 7 away games in a row, without counting the Wembley final with Borussia. And 4 of the opponent teams can be considered among the best teams in the world: Barcelona, Manchester City, Arsenal and Juventus. 6 times out of the last 7 away games Bayern won more than one goal advantage.
What else? Here we have much more to write about this match. The fact that the Reds are experiencing a negative season in Premier League, the fact that Bayern won the German title with 7 rounds of advance and they can now use their energies for the CL.
For this match Moyes will miss many players, among them Van Persie (6/4 in Champions League), Evra, Valencia and Smalling. Ferdinand should start from the bench. Guardiola will miss Dante and Thiago Alcantara.
Even though there are two matches to be played, I think that Bayern will want to qualify already in the first match and they can repeat the result they obtained with Manchester City. My correct score: 1-3.
