Sir Alex Ferguson will send his side out looking for goals when Manchester United visit Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

History suggests there will be little between the teams again in their eagerly-awaited two-legged quarter-final, which is why Ferguson believes any advantage that can be prised out of the Allianz Arena this week could prove crucial.

"A score draw or win is all you can hope for," Ferguson told MUTV.

"It would give us a good chance."

It is the same philosophy that served United so well in Milan for the last round, when despite falling behind to Ronaldinho's early goal, they maintained an attacking mentality and ultimately scored three times to put the tie well beyond David Beckham and his team-mates even before they were massacred at Old Trafford.

"We would like to equal our performance in Milan," he said.

"If we get the same kind of performance and result we would have a massive advantage coming back to Old Trafford."
