Manu hold the European Champions Bayern to 1 -1. It gives ManU a hope ahead of the second leg in Germany next week. Well before the crunch, supporters were taking their pictures, perhaps to preserve in memory of the last champion league match at Old Trafford for perhaps ManU beaten Bayern a side that rarely lose the ball let alone their matches.At the end it is Bayern who has been spooked. Nemanja Vidic got above them an unlikely scored an unlikely score line and also a temporarily one. The raining European champions found some added talent; schweinsteiger away goal brings the complexity of the ties. I think from ManU point of view, it is a fair result and the fans and the coach will be delighted and also they all played their part. A big boost for United and on top of that a couple of Bayern players suspended. The game was Even although we see a good possession from Bayern which they turned into away goal. But also we should mention that ManU defended in park was admirable in second half, they had their brakes and caused Bayern a few problems mainly when Kagawa came on – in all ManU should be pleased about their performance and the score line.
The second match saw Atletico Madrid against Barcelona, and it was Atletico Madrid who managed to get that crucial away goal which came before an hour mark although everyone expect Barcelona to win on both legs. They played 4 times this season and none of them had a winner. I still believe Barca still marked by what happened in semi finals last season when FC Bayern put them 7 goals to nothing on aggregate and I thing this will play mentally in them to go forward. We have to say, it was an amazing goal by Diego Diego, an absolute screamer from 25 – 30 yards and a pricing away goal. Barca managed to equalise through Brazilian forward Neymar 15 min later to level the tie of the night. I think Atletico will be pushing hard in the second leg, and they got their home fans who are going to urge them. Again it that city of Madrid against city of Barcelona mentality, and it going to be another fascinating second leg and it is too close to call.https://www.twitter.com/africafootball2
