Bayern Munich vs Manchester United , 2009/10

First Leg – Bayern 2-1 Manchester United

Ivica Olić struck in the dying seconds as FC Bayern München turned the tables on Manchester United FC to gain the upper hand in their quarter-final tie.

Bayern suffered one of the UEFA Champions League’s most dramatic reversals at the hands of United in the 1999 final, but got a measure of revenge with Olić’s goal deep into added time. United looked set to maintain their 100% away record in the competition this season after Wayne Rooney fired home with less than two minutes gone. Franck Ribéry, though, levelled 13 minutes from time when his free-kick ricocheted off Rooney before Olić seized the initiative for Bayern ahead of second leg at Old Trafford.

Second Leg – Manchester United 3-2 Bayern Munich

FC Bayern München fought back from three goals down on the night to oust Manchester United FC from the UEFA Champions League on away goals.

On a pulsating evening, United stormed into a three-goal lead through Darron Gibson and a Nani double. Yet Ivica Olić’s goal just before the break raised Bayern hopes and after Rafael’s 50th-minute dismissal, the Bundesliga leaders capitalised on the extra man thanks to a stunning Arjen Robben volley 16 minutes from time.
