Manchester United have no chance against Bayern - McManaman

Manchester United have no chance against Bayern - McManaman Steve McManaman says Manchester United have "no chance" of beating Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The reigning Premier League champions were paired with Pep Guardiola's side in last Friday's draw, with the Bavarians firm favourites to advance against a United side enduring the most torrid of campaigns.

David Moyes's men squeezed past Olympiakos in the last 16 courtesy of a 3-2 aggregate victory but are sat seventh in the Premier League table following Tuesday's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.
And McManaman, who played for United's arch-rivals Liverpool before winning the Champions League with Real Madrid, fully expects Bayern to breeze into the semi-finals.

"Can United beat Bayern? No, they have no chance," he said. "Bayern Munich have an amazing team - they're over 50 games unbeaten which is an incredible record. They are the favourites for the Champions League."

The 42-year-old then gave his thoughts on the race for La Liga following Barcelona's 4-3 victory over Real Madrid at the Bernabeu on Sunday.
"The result of the Clasico is great news for La Liga because there are now three teams in with a chance of winning the title," McManaman added.

"When I see Diego Simeone with Atletico Madrid I see real possibilities, he is doing a perfect job."
