Barcelona, Man United crash out of Champions League

A more defensive minded Man United side could not stop the Bundesliga league leaders-Bayern Munich from their second successive champions league semi final appearance.

David Moyes’s side had held Bayern to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the first leg and they stunned the hosts when Patrice Evra rifled in before the hour.But Mario Mandzukic nodded in a swift equaliser before Thomas Muller’s scuffed finish put Bayern ahead.

Arjen Robben then wrapped up the 4-2 aggregate win with a fine solo goal.

 

Atletico Madrid also knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League after Koke struck early in the second leg of the quarter-final at the Vicente Calderon.

The midfielder’s close-range shot gave the La Liga leaders a 2-1 aggregate win following last week’s draw.
