Bayern knock Manchester United out of the Champions League

Manchester United’s dream of going through to the semifinals lasted just 70 seconds after Patrice Evra’s wonder strike found the net in the second half.

The English visitors went up 2-1 on aggregate and had a crucial away goal.

But Mario Mandzukic found the net on the other end moments later, and it was Evra that was probably the culpable party.

Still on a 2-2 aggregate scoreline, the match was heading to penalties. But Thomas Muller derailed that possibility in the 68th minute to Bayern up 2-1 on the night.

There was still hope for the English, though, as a goal would give them the advantage with away goals.

On a counterattack, Danny Welbeck found Wayne Rooney all alone inside the box, but the England forward badly scuffed the clear-cut chance visibly inhibited by his toe injury sustained in the first leg.

Bayern, the holders of the Champions League trophy, should not be allowed such let offs if they’re to be defeated. Sure enough, Arjen Robben applied the killer goal in the 76th minute moving the score to 3-1 and 4-2 on aggregate.

That’s how it would finish and Manchester United exit the Champions League with nothing left to play for except the Europa League by finishing high enough in the Premier League.
