Draw revives 1999 memories

Three-time winners and Betfred’s 10/3 second favourites outright Manchester United will face Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in a repeat of the epic final between the two sides in Barcelona in 1999.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will take on the winners of the last-eight clash between Lyon and Bordeaux if they get past the Bundesliga giants (12/1 Champions League – Outright).

United needed stoppage-time goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to beat Bayern and complete the Treble over 10 years ago in the most famous meeting between the two sides.

Two years later Bayern beat the current Premier League champions in the quarter-finals en route to winning Europe’s elite club competition.

The first leg will take place at the Allianz Arena on March 30 or 31 with the return game at Old Trafford on April 6 or 7.
