David Moyes has urged Manchester United to capitalise on the absence of Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez in their last-eight second-leg clash at Bayern Munich.

Pep Guardiola’s side have a slight advantage in the quarter-final match-up after Schweinsteiger cancelled out Nemanja Vidic’s opener and scored a vital away goal at Old Trafford.

We’ve got a lot to do and we need to be mindful that we need to score

However, the experienced Germany international was sent off for a second yellow card in the final moments of the match and will miss the return leg at Allianz Arena next week.

Spanish midfielder Javi Martinez will also be unavailable after hitting his yellow card limit and triggering a ban, and United boss Moyes is taking encouragement from the two suspensions.

“They’re all important players for them because it limits the coach’s choices and what he can do,” Moyes told MUTV.

“We’ll have to try to take advantage of it. We have to go there and play as well as we did tonight, even more so because we have to go there and win the game or at least get a goal. I am confident we can do that.

“We’ve got a lot to do and we need to be mindful that we need to score. We must make sure we’re in the game but, if they score anyway, we’ll still need to score. It doesn’t change an awful lot in the initial part of the game.

“We’ll look at it this week and see what we need to do to prepare ourselves for the game.”
