Bayern Munich eliminate Manchester United on away goals

Bayern Munich fought back from three goals down on the night to record a 2-3 loss - but that was enough to knockout Manchester United from the UEFA Champions League on away goals.

On a pulsating evening, Manchester United stormed into a three-goal lead through Darron Gibson and two more goals from Nani.

But Ivica Olic's goal just before the break raised Bayern hopes and after Rafael's 50th-minute dismissal for a second yellow card, the Bundesliga leaders capitalised on the extra man thanks to a stunning Arjen Robben volley 16 minutes from time.

It was a repeat of the Dutchman's decisive goal in the identical away-goals win against ACF Fiorentina in the last 16 and means Bayern can look forward to their first semi-final since 2001, the year of their last European crown when they also beat United at this stage.
