United progress hangs in the balance

An early away goal was the dream start for the Reds in Munich tonight - but two second-half goals by the host leave United on the back foot going into next Wednesday's return leg.

That said, a goal in that game at Old Trafford would be enough to put United through to the semi final, where a two-legged tie with either Lyon or Bordeaux would await.

In the first leg in Lyon tonight, the home side won 3-1. The second leg of that match also takes in eight days.

If United did make it through, the away leg of the semi final would be played on Tuesday, April 27.
