    Manager reaction- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Bayern manager Pep Guardiola: "I am quite satisfied. Manchester United has one of the best teams in the world. We scored an away goal which is important, but we also got lucky that efforts from Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney did not go in. The goal we conceded was difficult to defend.

    "It is always dangerous when you go into the second leg with a 1-1 draw, but even a 2-1 victory would have been dangerous. We will try to win the second leg and I am sure we can do it. I have full confidence in my players and hope the fans in Munich will push us like the United supporters did for their team today."

  2. 22:16: 

    In tomorrow's other quarter-final, Real Madrid face Borussia Dortmund in a repeat of last season's semi-final with Gareth Bale dominating the headlines in Madrid.

    Boss Carlo Ancelotti admitted that Bale can be inconsistent, but defended the player's attitude and claimed that was to be expected given the type of player he is and the position he plays in.

    "I think it is true he is a little intermittent, but that is a characteristic of all forwards and especially very quick players," the Italian coach said as his team seek a 10th European Cup success.

    "Players with that speed can't have a continuous influence like other players with different characteristics like Xabi Alonso.

    "His inconsistency is a physical characteristic of the player, like Cristiano Ronaldo or Karim Benzema. It is not an attitude problem."

    Jenni: David Moyes picked the right team, he used the correct approach and made the right substitutions, so let's give him credit where credit is due. He and his players really deserve this result tonight and go into the second leg with a glimmer of hope. Believe.

    Pat, Glasgow: It would seem reports of Manchester United's death were slightly exaggerated.

    Anon: The fans at Old Trafford were incredible tonight, I think it's a good result in the context of our season, we can be proud tonight!

  4. 22:12: 
    Player reaction- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Bayern Munich midfielder Toni Kroos: "It was a tough game. We were dominant throughout the whole match, but United threw everything at us. They defended with 10 men and were dangerous with counter-attacks.

    "We did everything to pass the ball around and find gaps. In the end we highly deserved to score the equaliser and the result is not that bad for us. All options are available to us in the second leg."

    Chris Parker: Let's get something straight, putting 10 men behind the ball and hoping for the best is not a tactic.

    Tadios Negash: We have a game on our hands! Man United could have won. 2nd Leg will be Amazing.

    Matthew Bradshaw: Don't see what all the fuss is about Toni Kroos, Carrick was the far superior player tonight.

  6. 22:09: 
    What next?

    More Champions League gold tomorrow night then, as Chelsea take on Paris St-Germain in the French capital.

    What challenge awaits Chelsea?

    Well. Last season, under Carlo Ancelotti, PSG edged to their first title in 19 years thanks largely to their individual talents. They played cagey, counter-attacking football, scoring just 69 goals in total.

    Under Laurent Blanc, the Qatari-backed club have morphed into a genuine team striving to monopolise possession and attack in relentless waves.

    They pass domestic opponents to death in similar fashion to Barcelona or Bayern Munich. With seven matches remaining, PSG lead Monaco by 13 points having scored 71 times. In all competitions, they have netted 110 goals, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani contributing 55% of that total.

  7. 22:03: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Who will play for Bayern next week? Dante is back from suspension so will be a straight swap for Javi Martinez at the back, but who knows who Pep Guardiola will play in the place of Bastian Schweinsteiger in midfield.

    Martinez himself would have been an option, Thiago is injured so Pep may have to go with Mario Gotze - or play Mario Mandzukic up front and move Thomas Muller back a bit. Not bad options...

    Text us on 81111

    Andy, Grimsby: With Schweinsteiger and Martinez both suspended and Thiago Alcantara injured, surely United have a chance?

    Matt: United have played their best games away from home this season. Got to fancy our chances.

    Pete, Manchester: Forget the home/away stuff. The fact is that Utd are a 1-0 win away from beating Bayern. Defend like they did today, and they could go through.


    Infostrada Sports: Bayern have a PERFECT record after drawing the first leg away 1-1 in all European competitions, progressing 11 times out of 11.

    BUT In all European Cups history, after drawing 1-1 in the first leg, the away team has progressed on 74.5%.

    Manager reaction- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich
    David Moyes

    Manchester United manager David Moyes on ITV: "The players played really well so we're delighted but just a bit disappointed that we conceded in the end.

    "There was a real determination to make sure we did well, the players realised we were playing a really good side tonight.

    "We know we've got to score a goal in the second leg. We have to do something about it. But we know we've given ourselves a great opportunity."

    Awais Iqbal: Surprised to see Man Utd keep up with Bayern this quarter-final. I thought Bayern would have dominated

    Hannah Tomlinson: Going on some comments tonight, Moyes is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. Give him a break, he got things right tonight

    Shane Long: Great result for United and David Moyes. He is quick to be slated when beaten so maybe a bit of credit is due for this result.

    BBC Radio 5 liveMan Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Former Manchester United assistant manager Mike Phelan, speaking to BBC Radio 5 live: "I think United showed a good tactical awareness, they definitely had a plan which certainly frustrated Bayern. All in all the game plan worked, they took the lead but unfortunately couldn't handle all the pressure that Bayern put on them.

    "I don't think the tactics in Germany will differ much from tonight, it will be very tactical and United will have to again try to stem the tide. But United showed tonight they can hurt the centre-halves."

  13. 21:55: 
    Player reaction- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich
    Arjen Robben

    Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben: "It was a good match. United played very defensively and they were only waiting for counter-attacks. 1-1 is a good result. We will take it and will try to finish the job next week.

    "It is not easy when the opponent sets up so deep and closes down space. After they took the lead, we should be happy to take a 1-1 home to Munich."

  14. 21:54: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Manchester United manager David Moyes says he is 'delighted' with the performance of his side.

  15. 21:53: 
    Player reaction- Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    Barcelona midfielder Xavi: "We were expecting this kind of game. We had the majority of possession and chances but they did a good job, worked very hard and managed to score a great goal. This is not a good result but we will look to win the second leg."

  16. 21:52: 
    Player reaction- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic speaking to ITV Sport: "It was a tough game. We had a good result at 1-0, we had good positions and were solid, but one mistake and we were punished.

    "They're going to have a lot of possession at their ground so we have to keep our shape and I think we can hurt them."

    Manchester United

    G Ferguson, Bristol: In the context of Utd's season that is a great result. But it must be advantage Bayern with that away goal? Nothing in Utd's form says they can go to Munich and get a result... surely?!

    Dan, Lichfield: The question is, would Man Utd have been any better with Van Persie on the pitch?

    Al, Cardiff: You have to say that if Man Utd had played with the level of desire they showed tonight they would not be so far off the pace in the Premier League.

  19. 21:48: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Manchester United finished the game with just 26% possession and 67% passing accuracy - both Champions League lows for the club since 2005-06; as far back as records go.

    Bayern do that to most teams.

    Mike Coulson: Great to see Utd playing with pride and passion tonight, against top quality opposition.

    Liam Siggers: Good performance and decent result, still hard second leg but Moyes deserves credit for the way he set the team up tonight.

    Paul Hirsch: I'll take the draw. Not because I think we'll go through. Rather because its better than a lot feared. Good performance!

  21. 21:44: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    It was great movement from Bastian Schweinsteiger for the Bayern equaliser - he goes forward by going backwards. At the start of the move he was furthest forward as a centre-forward, but just before the cross came in he dropped back to the edge of the box and was then in space to sweep in Mario Mandzukic's knock-down.

    Join the debate at #bbcfootball

    Matt Graham: Tactically Moyes has got it completely right tonight. Doesn't erase mistakes in other matches but its been a great performance.

    Harry Partidge: The PL is unbeaten in Germany in 2013-14. Unless Bayern learn how to convert possession into goals, I make United favourites.

    Ricky Lee Everett: Great team performance tonight - a shame a lapse in concentration from Fellaini has cost United an away goal, tie still alive.

    Alan, Manchester: 1-1 draw at Old Trafford - chuffed? How things have changed.

    James, Kidderminster: That's more like it United - fight and passion for the shirt!

    Krystle: Could Rooney have made a bigger deal out of that if he tried??

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    "It was a very very good performance by United. It was a pity they couldn't hold on to the lead but there were a lot of positives to take for David Moyes. I think United could actually be disappointed with a draw, based on chances created. Bayern had all the possession but they didn't really create an awful lot, the problem though is that away goal.

    "Bayern might be without players for the second leg but they have got quality players to come in. United have got a chance because in the centre-back area Bayern are vulnerable. We saw it at Arsenal and we have seen it tonight, they don't like the ball over the top so United have got a chance."

    Scottish update- Inverness 1-2 Motherwell

    Iain Vigurs' late goal at Inverness moves Motherwell into second place in the Scottish Premiership table, and into pole position for a place in the Europa League.

    Alan Young, Former Leicester striker at the DW StadiumFULL-TIME- Wigan 2-2 Leicester

    "Leicester were second best tonight but they never, ever, ever give up. I'm sure Wigan will be there or thereabouts in the play-offs."

    FULL-TIME- Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Atletico were holding on towards the end and Barca will feel they did enough to edge it, but Thibaut Courtois - as always - was superb and this season's record between the teams is now played four, drawn four. Really it's a great result for Atletico and their defensive record at home is so good they have to be considered favourites now."

  29. 21:38: 
    FULL-TIME- Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    A good result for Atletico Madrid - an away goal to defend at the Vicente Calderon.

  30. 21:37: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Manchester United end the game with just 25.9% of possession but a very creditable draw. With Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez now missing the second leg, Pep Guardiola has decisions to make.

  31. 21:36: 
    FULL-TIME- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    David Moyes has a wry smile to Pep Guardiola as the game ends with Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer being pelted by paper from the Stretford End. Pep looks quizzical.

    Who is this a better result for? United will be happy enough.

  32. 21:35: 
    INJURY TIME- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Into the last of three minutes of stoppage time.

    Football League update

    The meeting of Blackburn and Brighton at Ewood Park has taken a trio of twists with Gordon Greer putting the visitors level at 2-2, Jordan Rhodes picking himself up after being fouled to slot home a penalty to restore Blackburn's lead before Dale Stephens nods in to level it up again at 3-3.

    Dean Hammond has put Leicester back level at 2-2 at Wigan with his first for the club.

    Meanwhile, Tom Soares has put Bury back in front against Bristol Rovers in League Two while Doug Loft's goal has given Port Vale a 2-1 lead at home to Crawley in League One.

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    "Schweinsteiger's red card is a big positive for United. Rooney has made a lot of it but it's a foul, he has dived in and you have to go. He will miss the second leg which is a big positive for United."

  35. 21:31: 
    RED CARD- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich - Bastian Schweinsteiger

    This could be a big moment in the tie! Bastian Schweinsteiger is shown a second yellow card for bringing down Wayne Rooney, and the German is not happy! He stands over Rooney, wagging the finger, but it was a foul Bastian. He will now miss the second leg too.

  36. 21:31:  
    Alan Young, Former Leicester striker at the DW StadiumChampionship latest

    "I tell you what, a great delivery from a set-piece and if you get a great delivery you've got a chance. Dean Hammond with his first goal means that it is now Wigan 2-2 Leicester."

  37. 21:30: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Javi Martinez goes into the book for a lunge on Javier Hernandez - he will now miss the second leg. Last minute of the 90.

  38. 21:30: 
    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Atletico are effectively gone from the game as an attacking force now, with all 11 men virtually permanently camped on the edge of their penalty area. Huge five minutes coming up - Iniesta is Barca's chief creator but don't rule out a certain L Messi producing something special…"

  39. 21:29: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    How has that not gone in? Arjen Robben to Franck Ribery, who beats Rio Ferdinand to the ball and then cuts it first-time right across the goalmouth. Mario Mandzukic should have a tap-in but he just didn't anticipate Ribery reaching that!

    United nine minutes away from a draw.

    Dylan Swann: Game made for Moyes, small team vs big. Set up to not concede and try to snatch it. Did it for years at Everton. Utd's Future.

    Luke: Worrying thing is that Hodgson will take every English player on the field tonight to Brazil. Not one good enough.

  49. 21:21: 
    Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "All of a sudden, it feels like a cup tie. Barca are in full flow and the crowd have belatedly woken up. Iniesta is making it all happen, producing a slide-rule pass for Neymar's goal and forcing Courtois into one of his routinely brilliant saves. Barca pushing hard, more goals on the cards now."

    SUBSTITUTION- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    The injured left-back Alexander Buttner limps off, with Ashley Young coming on. That means changes for United, with Phil Jones at left-back and Antonio Valencia at right-back. Young is on the right in a more advanced position.

    Bayern make a more straightforward change, with Toni Kroos and Mario Gotze on.

    Ruben, Aberdeen: Poor tracking from Fellaini, he's been good off the ball but his struggle at MUFC continues.

  56. 21:15: 
    GOAL- Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid - Neymar (71 mins)

    Barca are back in business! Andres Iniesta plays a magnificent through-pass with the outside of his right boot, it's inch perfect and cuts out three defenders, allowing Neymar to sweep in powerfully across the keeper.

  57. 21:14: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Oooof - Antonio Valencia is a lucky boy. He catches Jerome Boateng late, they both slide in for the ball, but he catches him. He was booked in the first half but gets away with that one.

  58. 21:15: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "So how do Barca respond? Tata Martino's default setting is to replace Cesc Fabregas, however well or badly he or other players are performing, and he's done it again tonight to bring on a more attacking player in the form of Alexis Sanchez. That means a change of shape, with Neymar coming over to the left wing, Alexis on the right and Iniesta dropping deeper into midfield."

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    "Bayern Munich have been passing the ball around all night - and yet that crucial equaliser came from a cross knocked by the big striker Mario Mandzukic into the path of Bastian Schweinsteiger. Old school."

  60. 21:12: 
    Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    There are still 20 minutes to go at Old Trafford. Antonio Valencia and Alex Buttner have both gone down with what looks like cramp. United don't have any defenders on the bench...

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich

    "What an absolutely brilliant finish by Bastian Schweinsteiger. Great great play by Bayern Munich, his run wasn't tracked by Marouane Fellaini, and if you are in the team to be the defensive midfielder you have to do better than that, especially when he is offering nothing in attack."

  62. 21:10:

    Nemanja Vidic scores for Man Utd

    Nemanja Vidic's opener put Manchester United ahead - but the best thing about it is another first-class face from Phil Jones...

  63. 21:08: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich - Bastian Schweinsteiger (67 mins)

    Class goal. Bayern do land a punch as Bastian Schweinsteiger lashes in an equaliser. Arjen Robben carries the ball forward before freeign Rafinha on the overlap, his cross reaches substitute Mario Mandzukic, and he picks out Schweinsteiger with a fine header. The ball is a difficult one to strike, on the bounce, but the German midfielder caresses the ball into the top corner with his left foot.

  64. 21:07: 
    Man Utd 1-0 Bayern Munich

    It's backs to the wall time now again for Manchester United, they sit in and take the punishment, like Balboa v Creed. Unlike Creed though, Bayern are not landing the punches.

    Gary Lineker, BBC Sport

    Gary Lineker on Twitter: Moyes has got this spot on tonight.

    Alan Young, Former Leicester striker at the DW StadiumChampionship latest- Wigan 2-1 Leicester

    "Bad defending from Leicester and it's another free header at the near post, this time for Rob Kiernan. The first goal was exactly the same. The Foxes' back four were irreplaceable at one time this season, tonight, I'm afraid they've let their keeper down."

    Football League update

    There are goals in the Football League as well where Reza Ghoochannejhad has put Charlton 1-0 up away to troubled Leeds. The Addicks have won two of their last four to move out of the relegation zone.

    Wigan have edged back in front against leaders Leicester with Rob Kiernan's first senior goal for the club putting them 2-1 up.

    In League One, Billy Knott has levelled for Port Vale at home to Crawley Town.

  68. 21:04: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Man Utd 1-0 Bayern Munich

    Bayern have lacked a focal point and here comes a big Croatian one. Mario Mandzukic is on, Thomas Muller is off. Half an hour left, Nemanja Vidic the difference.

    Barcelona 0-1 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Wow wow wow…what a strike from Diego! The view from the press box was right behind that shot and you could see the ball wobbling in the air before drifting late into the top corner. Should Pinto have saved it inside his near post? He appeared to get fingertips to it but the ball was travelling at such speed it would be harsh to attach blame. Simply a wonderful hit by the Diego that nobody expected to score."

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-0 Bayern Munich

    "Huge roars around Old Trafford after Nemanja Vidic's goal. Bayern Munich, for all that possession, have not created many chances and suddenly there is real belief here."

    Bayern have been sloppy since the restart, not at the races. What a win this could be for David Moyes and co...

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd 1-0 Bayern Munich

    "What a header that was from Nemanja Vidic, the ball is behind him, he's swivelled and used all his neck muscles to score. They deserve it as well based on chances."

  75. 21:00: 
    GOAL- Barcelona 0-1 Atletico Madrid - Diego (56 mins)

    Absolute belter of a goal from substitute Diego, who unleashes one from 30 yards on the angle. You don't stop those, not if you're called Pinto anyway.

  76. 20:59: 
    GOAL- Man Utd 1-0 Bayern Munich - Nemanja Vidic (58 mins)

    Extraordinary! Shinji Kagawa wins a corner, Wayne Rooney swings in the cross and Nemanja Vidic is totally unmarked to steer in a header! He was moving away from goal, the ball was behind him and he showed great neck strength to flick that in. Game on!

    BBC Radio 5 live summariser Robbie Savage at Old TraffordMan Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    "You've got say, Bayern are there for the taking..."

  78. 20:58: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    End-to-end stuff now! Antonio Valencia has four men in the middle but overcooks his cross - poor - and Bayern then counter, with Toni Kroos seeing his low shot well blocked by Nemanja Vidic.

    Edward, Bath: Fellaini winner from 25 yards to seal an unbelievable 2-1 win for the hosts. Heard it here first.

    James, Manchester: Munich 78% possession, 0% cutting edge.

  80. 20:55: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich
    Wayne Rooney (left) and Bastian Schweinsteiger

    Arjen Robben works a one-two neatly on the edge of the area and Robben's low shot is well blocked by a resolute Rio Ferdinand. Franck Ribery then takes Phil Jones around the outside easily again but his cross is well dealt with. Bayern not at their first-half best yet.

    Alan Young, Former Leicester striker at the DW StadiumWigan 1-1 Leicester

    "Wigan are making the best passes, they're looking after the ball much better and that's basically the difference between the two teams. I see Leicester making a couple of changes soon."


    Opta Joe: 29 - No Manchester United player had more touches in the first half than Marouane Fellaini. Involved.

  83. 20:54: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Manuel Neuer comes out to win a header 30 yards from goal. If you thought Spurs' Hugo Lloris was a sweeper keeper you should see Neuer in action. He is almost a third centre-back at times.

    Chibuzo C. Ejike: Man Utd are set up not to lose but they need to support themselves once in possession to pose a threat.

    Andrew Valette: Welbeck has done really well tonight. I just wish he could've swapped with Hernandez for the five seconds of that breakaway.

    Madness Inc: Kagawa ON. Maybe #mufc can create a couple more chances. Could be irrelevant with Bayern dominating though.

    At this stage last season, Bayern beat Juventus 2-0 at home in the first-leg of their quarter-final, with David Alaba and Thomas Muller on target. David de Gea has only had one real save to make tonight as we reach the 50-minute mark.

    Inverness CT 0-1 Motherwell.

    Henri Anier's goal six minutes before half-time gives Motherwell a slender lead in the Highlands, stabbing the ball in off the post after collecting a long ball through the middle. The Estonian striker's 8th goal of the season.

  96. 20:42: 
    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Spain football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Atletico will be very happy with that first half. Their defensive discipline and determination severely restricted Barca, who only created one major chance when Messi weaved some magic to supply Iniesta. At the other end, Atletico were neat in possession although Costa's departure predictably diminished their cutting edge. David Villa has looked the most likely scorer so far, though."

    Alan Young, Former Leicester striker at the DW StadiumHALF-TIME- Wigan 1-1 Leicester

    "Leicester have been a wee bit unfortunate although they have created chances. But the biggest threat is coming from Wigan and they'll have to sort that out in the second half."

    Football League update
    Andy King

    Leicester slip behind at Wigan with Latics defender Ivan Ramis rolling up from the back to head home a free-kick, but the hosts lead lasts just five minutes with Andy King planting home a side-foot finish to make it 1-1.

    Tom Cairney has put Blackburn 2-1 in front against Brighton meeting Tommy Spurr's low cross with an assured far-post finish.

    There are extraordinary goings-on at Bramall Lane where Sheffield United's Kieron Freeman was shown a red card by the referee only to be reprieved after consultation with the assistant referee. A penalty awarded to Brentford for the incident is also chalked off.

    Elsewhere in League One, Billy Clarke's penalty has given Crawley a 1-0 lead over Port Vale while Ollie Clarke has equalised for Bristol Rovers against Bury in League Two.

  100. 20:34: 
    HALF-TIME- Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Not a great first-half at the Nou Camp, it's all been a bit tempestuous. Atletico will be happy enough but since Diego Costa went off injured, it is the hosts who have looked more threatening.

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordHALF-TIME- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    "It has been a fast and frenetic first half, Bayern had all the possession but Danny Welbeck should have scored twice. When he had the ball in the net that should have stood and then when he was through on goal he should have done better. But United are still in this game and still have an opportunity."

  102. 20:33: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    125 passes plays 468 in that first half. It's been all Bayern but Danny Welbeck still had the best chance of the game.

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    "Bayern Munich have dominated possession but the best chance so far fell to Manchester United's Danny Welbeck. How important will that miss be? He seemed in several minds with the time and space available to him and Bayern keeper Manuel Neuer did the rest."

  104. 20:31: 
    HALF-TIME- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    So far, so good for United? Or should they even be ahead?

  105. 20:30: 
    CLOSE!- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Close again! Danny Welbeck does well again to pick the ball out of the sky and lay it off out to Antonio Valencia. His cross-shot takes a deflection and whistles over the bar. United ending the half well.

  106. 20:30:  
    Ian Stringer, BBC Radio LeicesterChampionship latest

    "And it goes in from Andy King, a superb finish to equalise for the Foxes. He took it neatly on his chest and stroked it in. Wigan 1-1 Leicester."

  107. 20:28: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    That was an incredibly good chance for Manchester United. They have been camped in their own half all game, under siege, but one good pass from Wayne Rooney unlocked the Bayern defence. Danny Welbeck looks like he can hurt them with his pace.

    He had to score that though...

  108. 20:28:  
    Ian Stringer, BBC Radio LeicesterChampionship latest

    "It's been coming for Wigan, who now lead Leicester 1-0. It was a peach of a delivery by Jordi Gomez and a free header from Ivan Ramis, no less than they deserve."

    Welbeck has time, he goes for a chip over the head of Manuel Neuer but the German swats it away with a giant paw. Great save - massive miss...

    Marouane Fellaini is being hounded out of possession every time the ball comes near him, it's a frustrating watch and the Stretford End then gives him a huge ironic cheer when he clears a routine header. They then burst into song about Ole Gunnar Solskjaer...

  114. 20:22: 
    PENALTY APPEAL- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Several Bayern players want a penalty as a cross is hammered into Alex Buttner's arm - he was inches away from the ball and could do nothing about it.

    Moments later David Alaba slides another low cross into the goalmouth and Nemanja Vidic does really well to reach it ahead of Thomas Muller.

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Victor Valdes' long-term injury means Barca have 38 year old amateur hip-hop DJ Jose Manuel Pinto in goal for the rest of the season. He's a good shot-stopper and decent enough on crosses, but he looks like a disaster waiting to happen with the ball at his feet. Already one bad kick out has led to a chance for Atletico, and the Barca fans are audibly anxious whenever the ball comes his way."

  116. 20:18: 
    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Better from Manchester United. They spring Marouane Fellaini into space down the right-hand side, he takes his time before teeing up the fast-arriving Wayne Rooney 30 yards out, he cracks in a first-time shot but Philipp Lahm blocks superbly.

    Phil Jones then has to readjust his feet to cut out a cross at the other end. Like a wedding DJ, the tempo of this one is rising as the darkness hits Old Trafford.

    Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Diego Costa has hobbled off and - along with Gerard Pique - that's another major injury development with implications well beyond tonight. Atletico's human battering ram has been sensational this season, and without his goals it's tough to see how they can finish their mightily impressive campaign with any silverware. Massive, massive blow to Atletico and a great shame after their bright opening 30 minutes."

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    "Michael Carrick has got to get closer, you can't let Arjen Robben have that much space and time on the ball. It was a brilliant save but Carrick has got to close down quicker, surely? We haven't seen too many shots from outside the box but no one closed Robben down so he went for it."

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    "If Manchester United can take any consolation from the fact that they are barely getting a kick of the ball, it will be that Bayern Munich have yet to create a serious chance. How long that state of affairs persists is another matter entirely."

  121. 20:15: 
    GREAT SAVE!- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Five...six...SEVEN! United's best spell of possession ends as Phil Jones gives the ball away.

    And right down the other end, Arjen Robben is allowed to cut inside on to his left foot and arc in a bender form 25 yards which David de Gea has to go full-length to tip away. Do not let Robben do that! Michael Carrick was too slow to shut him down.

    Barcelona have not been their fluid self but here's a decent chance, Xavi clipping the ball into the path of Neymar, but his header is tame and easy for Thibaut Courtois to hold in the Atletico goal.

    Lionel Messi shoots at goal

    Spain football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "For the umpteenth time, Barca are regretting their failure to sign a central defender last summer. Gerard Pique going off injured means they're down to just two centre backs - Javier Mascherano, who is really a midfielder, and relatively untested youngster Marc Bartra. We'll have to see how badly Pique is hurt but that could be a big factor in the title race."

  140. 19:59: 
    YELLOW CARD- Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Bayern have had 74.2% of the ball so far - about average for them. And there's a booking as Antonio Valencia is late on Philipp Lahm in the centre. David Moyes looks angry on the sidelines but he'll be fairly pleased with his side's efforts so far.

  141. 19:57: 
    SUBSTITUTION- Barcelona 0-0 Atletico Madrid

    Barcelona's troubles at the back continue. Gerard Pique lands awkwardly on his back and has to come off inside 15 minutes, with Marc Barta on in his place. No regular keeper and no first-choice central defenders now...

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "Impressive, positive start from Atletico, who should already be ahead through David Villa. The big tactical decision for Diego Simeone was whether to play Diego Costa up front or in a deeper wide role, as he has done in a number of other big games. So far, Costa is up top with Villa in the closest thing Spanish football will give you to a good old 4-4-2 formation."

    "Danny Welbeck has started really brightly, he has really showed his pace already and his skill. I am surprised he hasn't played more games this season because of his pace, it is something that can really scare defenders."

    Man Utd 0-0 Bayern Munich

    Danny Welbeck's foot was level with Javi Martinez's nose as he controlled the ball prior to sticking it into the net - but in the Premier League he may have got away with that. Bayern survive a scare and have controlled play since.

    Big chance for Atletico Madrid! Barca's stand-in keeper Jose Pinto has had a very uncertain start and his fluffed kick ends up back a the feet of former Barca striker David Villa, he's 10 yards out but scuffs his effort wide.

    Almost a blinding start from United! Danny Welbeck lifts the ball skillfully over the head of Javi Martinez and cracks in a rising shot on the bounce.

    Brendan Bennett: Bayern's domination is all an illusion. They have a great record in an awful league. United to win by 1 goal.

    Barcelona v Atletico Madrid (19:45 BST)

    Spanish football writer Andy West at Camp Nou: "There is a strangely flat atmosphere around Camp Nou tonight. There's no crackle or buzz in the air and it's expected that this vast stadium will be significantly below capacity. Maybe that's a reflection of the high ticket prices, or a lack of excitement about facing a fellow Spanish team. Whatever the explanation, it certainly doesn't feel like a Champions League quarter-final night."

    Who should be on Manchester United's summer shopping list? That is a question which may be answered by performances tonight and next Wednesday...

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    "Playing for Manchester United, there is pressure every time you pull that red shirt on. The fans expect. At their best this season United are not a match for the best teams in Europe.

    "If they lose heavily to Bayern the question has to be asked: after spending nearly £65m on two players who have not really fitted in yet, would David Moyes be the man to spend £100-150m in the summer?"


    Opta Joe: 80 - @WayneRooney is set to play his 80th Champions League match (excl. qualifiers); the same number as Zinedine Zidane managed. Experience.

    BBC Radio 5 liveMan Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    Pep Guardiola took the opportunity to rest most of his big guns for that 3-3 draw against Hoffenheim. Of tonight's XI, only Rafinha, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Frack Ribery started that game. Fresh legs.

    The tactical discussion continues on 5 live as we enter the final half-hour before kick-off.

    Man Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    European football writer Raphael Honigstein: "This time last season not that many had Bayern as favourites to win the trophy. We are now at the business end of this season - what has been done domestically was expected and the Champions League is where they have to reinforce the results of last season.

    "Their 3-3 draw last weekend against Hoffenheim felt like a friendly, there was no intensity, but it will be very different tonight."

    Johnny, Salford: Moyes consistently selects defensive-minded teams with a hint of attack in case they find an opening. Why not just go all-out attack tonight if they know their chances are slim? At least it would be entertaining!

    Alan, Devon: Where is the lightning counter-attack going to spring from, a 40-yr-old Giggs? Please pray for us all, you neutrals - this is going to be carnage.

    Tinashe, Durban, South Africa: Logic would be to start Kagawa behind Rooney! Fellaini is a red card waiting to happen, Welbeck has no shooting boots in his locker.

    Robbie Savage, BBC Radio 5 live at Old TraffordMan Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    "I think the reason David Moyes has named Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck is so they can double up and help their full-backs. They are going to have to with the lack of pace of the centre-backs.

    "Ryan Giggs' performance against Olympiakos was sensational but to not have a replacement for him and to bring a 40-year-old back for a game of this size says a lot about the United team.

    "The team is definitely one to contain Bayern and I think that is exactly what they are going to have to do tonight."

    Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben

    Memo to Mr Buttner - do not let this man cut inside on to his left foot tonight.

    Interestingly, Manchester United have never lost a European game at Old Trafford by more than one goal. They have lost 12 games at home in Europe but all by a single goal.

    Sameer Bari: United would need to score early and tighten their defence after that. They also needed to start with Kagawa, he is the main man.

    Paul McElwaine: United need to press high and let Bayern know who is the home team. Keep Robben quiet. Use anaesthesia if needed. Rooney shoot on sight. Win

    Ryan Giggs and Danny Welbeck

    Rio Ferdinand comes into the Manchester United defence with Phil Jones shuffling to replace right-back Rafael who pulled his hamstring in the 4-1 win over Aston Villa. There is no space for Shinji Kagawa in a revamped midfield which sees Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick and Ryan Giggs come into the side. Danny Welbeck starts up front off Wayne Rooney.

    Bayern Munich make eight changes from the weakened side that drew 3-3 with Hoffenheim in the wake of their title triumph. Franck Ribery, Rafinha and Bastian Schweinsteiger survive and are joined by the likes of Manuel Neuer, Arjen Robben, Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and David Alaba in a near-full strength line-up. Midfielder Thiago Alcantara is missing however after tearing knee ligaments last time out.

    BBC Sport Chief Football Writer Phil McNulty at Old TraffordMan Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)

    "Manchester United manager David Moyes places great faith in the old guard of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand in central defence while Phil Jones and Alexander Buttner are on the flanks. Can Bayern exploit that ageing pair or will their experience help United to keep Pep Guardiola's outstanding Bundlesliga champions and Champions League holders at bay?"

    Pep at Old Trafford?- Man Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 GMT)
    Pep Guardiola

    After such contrasting seasons, Manchester United fans may be forgiven for wondering how different life would have been had Sir Alex Ferguson chosen Pep instead of Dave.

    Unlikely? Well, not according to the man himself. Guardiola joked yesterday that he might have been offered the Manchester United job but missed out because of his limited English.

    "Maybe I didn't understand if I received an offer or not," said the 43-year-old Guardiola.

    "My English is not so good and when Sir Alex spoke quickly I didn't understand him."

    The former Spain midfielder met Ferguson in New York while on a 12-month sabbatical after leaving Barcelona at the end of the 2011-12 season.

    "He invited me to a super restaurant," Guardiola said. "It was a friendly dinner, like always. He was so gentle and we spent a very good time together."

    Sounds like a cracking first date. Sir Alex just didn't seal the deal...

    So why are Bayern so good?

    Bayern had won 19 league games in a row - a Bundesliga record - before last weekend's draw with Hoffenheim and are now unbeaten in a record 53 Bundesliga games.

    Pep Guardiola has not made many changes to Jupp Heynckes' side this season but one notable switch has seen captain Philipp Lahm move into midfield. And he added Thiago and Mario Gotze to an already stellar midfield. We shall find out which XI he has selected for tonight's test soon enough...

    "Bayern Munich's fans are already starting to gather in one sun-bathed corner of Old Trafford on a perfect night for this Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United. The holders are attempting to become the first club to retain the Champions League and are firm favourites to progress.

    BBC Radio 5 live summariser Robbie Savage at Old TraffordMan Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 GMT)

    "I think Manchester United have to be at 100% with a fully fit squad and they have not got that. Bayern also need to have an off day and they don't have many of those. I think it will be Phil Jones at right back, Alexander Buttner left back and with the pace of Bayern, they will destroy United.

    "David Moyes has to make sure the team he picks is the right one. The team he played against Manchester City I thought was tactically wrong. He needs to go with pace because Bayern's centre-backs are weak to pace. Moyes needs to get it tactically spot on, otherwise it could be two or three for Bayern."

  211. 18:26: 
    The last eight

    A quick reminder of which teams have made it this far. Here is a rundown of the last eight of the Champions League:

    Man Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 GMT)

    Barcelona v Atletico Madrid (19:45 GMT)

    Paris St-Germain v Chelsea (Wednesday)

    Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund (Wednesday)

  212. 18:23: 
    Barcelona v Atletico Madrid (19:45 BST)

    Just a point separates leaders Atletico Madrid from Barcelona at the top of La Liga, and they get a chance to knock each other off their stride as both sides seek a Spanish and European double tonight.

    Argentine coaches Gerado Martino and Diego Simeone have overseen three low-scoring draws between the teams this season, but the Atletico coach may be more anxious after top scorer Diego Costa pulled out of training on Monday with a knee injury.

    League One and Two preview

    Top play bottom in League One where victory for leaders Wolves at struggling Stevenage would move Kenny Jackett's side 13 points clear of third-placed Leyton Orient.

    Sheffield United will be looking to regain momentum after their 10-match winning run came to an end with only one victory in their last four. The Blades can do Wolves a favour by beating second-placed Brentford at Bramall Lane. Port Vale travel to Crawley and Coventry welcome Bradford in the other two matches at League One tonight.

    In League Two, Bury and Bristol Rovers meet at the JD Stadium where a win for either would go a long way to securing their Football League status for another season.

    Championship preview

    We do have some domestic action too this evening. After a 10-year absence, Championship leaders Leicester's return to the Premier League is almost assured. The Foxes saw off nearest challengers Burnley at the weekend and will move nine points clear at the top if they can overcome Wigan at the DW Stadium.

    Elsewhere, Brighton's hopes of making the play-offs have been stalled by three successive defeats, but victory over Blackburn at Ewood Park would put them within one point of the top six.

    At the opposite end of the table, Charlton have climbed out of the relegation zone with two wins in their last four and will hope to make further upward progress away to Leeds.

    What we're all about- Man Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 GMT)

    In his programme notes, Manchester United boss David Moyes says: "These are the nights that Manchester United are all about and have been for many years.

    "They are what Sir Matt Busby had in mind when he first took United into Europe, with two huge clubs going head-to-head.

    "Over two legs we believe we can progress, but none of us are under any illusions as to how big a task awaits."

    Bayern Munich

    You see a skint bookmaker about as often as you see a skinny butcher - and with good reason. They know their onions.

    Or their meats. Or their odds.

    Manchester United have been priced at around 6/1 to win tonight - the biggest odds they have ever been with some some bookmakers to win a game at Old Trafford. That is the size of the task facing David Moyes and co.

    But we are in search of some optimism.

    How can United win this tie? What do they need to do? Who needs to play - and where?

    Pep Guardiola, on the other hand, had found life with Bayern pretty straightforward.

    He lost his first game in charge against Borussia Dortmund but only Manchester City have repeated that feat again this term.

    Bayern have 78 points from 28 games - winning the title last Tuesday night while United were humbled again by rivals Manchester City.

    But even David Moyes has admitted that he has found this season much harder than he ever anticipated.

    So far it's been a painful year for Moyes at Old Trafford. United are seventh in the Premier League with 54 points from 32 games and Moyes' record in all competitions reads like this:

    Won: 26

    Drawn: Eight

    Lost: 13

    Rookies of the year?- Man Utd v Bayern Munich (19:45 BST)
    Sir Alex Ferguson

    Last summer, two footballing giants took the difficult step of replacing hugely successful managers.

    In Munich, Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes bowed out after a staggeringly brilliant campaign which saw him deliver the Bundesliga, German Cup and Champions League trophies.

    Across the pond in Manchester, United lost an even bigger part of their history as Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down at the end of a 26-year reign which delivered 38 trophies.

    Pep Guardiola

    The two clubs' succession strategies could hardly be more different. Bayern went and landed Pep Guardiola, the man behind Barcelona's European domination, while United appointed Everton boss David Moyes.

    Almost 12 months on, 'new' boys Moyes and Guardiola face off tonight in the last eight of the Champions League. It's fair to say they've had, er, contrasting records in the job so far. Who will come out on top?
