David Moyes declared that Manchester United have a “great opportunity” to reach the Champions League last four after holding Bayern Munich to a draw in their quarter-final first leg.

Danny Welbeck shot straight at Manuel Neuer in the best chance of the first half at Old Trafford before Nemanja Vidic’s header gave the hosts the lead from a corner in the 58th minute.

We’ve given ourselves a great opportunity to go to Munich and try and get a victory

Bastian Schweinsteiger’s superb half-volley pulled the visitors level in the 66th minute, before the Germany international saw red for a second bookable offence late on.

And after a battling display, Moyes played up his chances of securing a spot in the semi-final draw ahead of next Wednesday’s return leg.

“The players played really well tonight so we’re delighted with the performance but just a bit disappointed that we conceded in the end,” Moyes said.

“I thought it was a really good performance, really gutsy. It was a great crowd here tonight, a great atmosphere.

“There was a real determination tonight to make sure we did well, it’s a competition we have a really good history in, and the players realised we were playing a really good side tonight.

“We know we’ve got to score a goal in the second leg. If the score stays the same, Bayern go through – we have to do something about it.

“We wanted a have a chance and we know we’ve given ourselves a great opportunity to go to Munich and try and get a victory.”
