Ex-Liverpool midfielder Steve McManaman believes Manchester United stand no chance in their Champions League quarter-final tie with Bayern Munich next week, reports

Bayern clinched the Bundesliga title last night in record time and will now have their sights firmly focussed on Manchester United. 

The Bavarians are looking to become the first side to win the Champions League back-to-back in the modern era, whilst David Moyes' side are looking to save their season. 

Whilst Bayern have comfortably defended their league title, Moyes' side have had a disastrous campaign and currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League table. 

United hit rock bottom last night, as they were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Manchester City at Old Trafford and McManaman doesn't see it getting any easier for Moyes and Co. next week.

The ex-Liverpool and Real Madrid man told reporters: "Can United beat Bayern? No, they have no chance," he told the press. "Bayern Munich have an amazing team - they're over 50 games unbeaten, which is an incredible record. They are the favourites for the Champions League."

However Manchester United must focus on domestic duties before the clash with Bayern on April 1. The Red Devils play host to Aston Villa at the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday and will be desperate to secure all three points against Paul Lambert's side in order to build some momentum.
