David Moyes: Manchester United can shock Bayern Munich

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager David Moyes insists his side remain capable of beating the world's best teams ahead of his side's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Monday, Moyes said the Red Devils are still one of the best sides in world football when they perform to the best of their abilities, and that his team believe they can overcome the recently-crowned Bundesliga champions this week.

"We go into the game knowing on our day we're as good a side as any," the Scot told reporters. "We must show it, we have belief."

Manchester United are the firm underdogs going into the two-legged tie against the reigning European champions. Most of the leading bookmakers have the Red Devils priced at 13/2 to win the first leg at Old Trafford, while their 33/1 odds to win the competition make them tournament outsiders.

However, Moyes's side recorded a morale-boosting 4-1 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, which alleviated the pressure on the United manager's shoulders following last Tuesday's 3-0 defeat to local rivals Manchester City.

Bayern Munich, meanwhile, were held to a 3-3 draw against Hoffenheim at the Allianz Arena. However, Guardiola opted to rest most of his star players with Tuesday night's game in mind.
