Former Manchester United defender Steve Bruce has backed his old club to upset the odds and beat Bayern Munich in tonight’s Champions League quarter-final second leg.

Man United travel to the Allianz Arena for tonight’s quarter-final second leg after keeping the tie alive with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the first leg last week, in which they took the lead through a Nemanja Vidic header. Bastian Schweinsteiger, who scored the equaliser, is suspended after he was sent off for two bookable offences while Javi Martinez is also suspended after picking up a yellow card against Man United. Despite last week’s positive result, many are still predicting Pep Guardiola’s Bayern to advance to the semi-finals, although, former Man United defender and current Hull City boss Steve Bruce believes that his old side can win at the Allianz Arena tonight.
He said on talkSPORT: “Nobody gave them a chance before the tie – of course they’ve got a chance, you can never count out Man United. “It’s going to be a tall order as Bayern are the best team in Europe, but Man United can win. ”Last time Man United and Bayern met was at the same stage of the Champions League in 2010, when the Germans advanced on the away goals rule following a 2-1 win in Germany before losing 3-2 on the night at Old Trafford in the second leg.
