Manchester United boss David Moyes believes that the Red Devils can lift the Champions League trophy in Lisbon this May, following a remarkable comeback in the knockout stage against Olympiakos.

"I hope so," said Moyes. "We will probably be underdogs depending on the draw but hopefully we can do it - I don’t see why not. I genuinely think this club is capable of it.

"If we play to our capabilities, which we haven’t done too often, then we can be a match for any team."

An excellent hat-trick from star striker Robin van Persie helped Manchester United to overturn the 2-0 deficit from the first leg against the Greek champions.

David Moyes was delighted with his team's performance on Wednesday night and said: "There was a real tempo which maybe we haven’t seen at Old Trafford for a lot of games here this season.

"I don’t want to say this is the moment, but in the same breath I really hope it is."

The Premier League champions have had a disappointing first season so far under the Scot, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.

Alongside Manchester United, the clubs which have qualified for the quarter finals are Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint Germain and fellow Premier League side Chelsea.

The draw for the Champions League quarter finals will be made on Friday, March 21, where United will be hoping for a favourable draw which could boost their chances of reaching the semi-finals.
