24min: They're getting closer... Ribery again penetrates the defence with a small but effective reverse pass to release David Alaba down the left, but the full-back's pacey cross across goal fails to find a team-mate. Man Utd: De Gea, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Buttner, Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Giggs, Rooney, Welbeck.Subs: Lindegaard, Hernandez, Nani, Young, Fletcher, Kagawa, Januzaj. 'Fellaini getting the bird from United fans after losing a header to Boateng and a 50-50 with Kroos.
It's the German stopper who has seen more action than De Gea so far in this half - and on the ball, he doesn't look comfortable. Since 1999 …
David Moyes put his faith in the old legs of Ryan Giggs once more as Manchester United seek to achieve a positive result against holders Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford. 'The Bayern keeper has turned up in a white and flourescent number that looks like a combination of an ice hockey and something you'd wear for a cycling proficiency test. 77min: Bayern are pressing for an overall lead now, as Robben fires a low shot just wide of De Gea's post from the edge of the box. Maybe that's who Moyes (below) was gesturing too? The Germans wouldn't see a draw as a disaster, even though pessimistic United fans expect Bayern to hammer them tonight.

So David Moyes looks like he has given a nod to experience with Ryan Giggs starting but it may not matter looking at Bayern's line-up. Think Javier Hernandez against Stoke a few years back - it's a superb goal and David Moyes punches the air with delight. Manchester United were without two of their best players namely Roy Keane and Paul Scholes for the final. Bayern Munich became just the third side in UEFA Champions League history to hit the 500-goal mark in the competition (500 goals in total), after Barcelona (517) and Real Madrid (567). Gasps from the home crowd. But in the United box, Franck Ribery cuts the ball back from the bye-line for Thomas Muller, only for the German to fail in making clean contact to turn the ball towards goal. One which Ryan Giggs fails to find a team-mate with at the near post. Some people may call that a free-role, others (just me) would call it a six-pence position from Mike Bassett's Christmas Pudding formation, but it could be a role that helps United to a surprise win this evening... 21 - Franck Ribery has created more goal scoring chances than any other player in the Champions League this season (21). United and Arsenal play out thrilling draw. Out come the players then - it's a big roar from the Old Trafford crowd. United never got going in the game and survived two late scares in the second half when Bayern were denied by the woodwork.

Seeing plenty of possession has been United target Toni Kroos who has been pulling the strings for the European champions in the centre of the park in the first half, here is his heat map. 61min: That goal has totally rattled me, and it's totally rattled Bayern as well as Schweinsteiger is booked for a clumsy tackle on Carrick 30 yards from the Bayern goal.
