Former Manchester United defender Steve Bruce has backed his old side to progress to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Many are tipping Manchester United to crash out of the prestigious competition tonight as they go into their clash against the European champions having conceded an away goal.

However Hull manager Steve Bruce believes his former side are more than capable of sealing a place in the semi-finals of the Champions League alongside fellow Premier League side Chelsea.

Bruce, speaking to talkSPORT, said on Manchester United's chances of eliminating Bayern Munich.

“Of course Manchester United have got a chance.

"It is a tall order because Bayern Munich, for me, are the outstanding team in Europe and it is going to be difficult. But you can never write of Manchester United in a one-off game.

"Can they win the game? Of course they can.

"David needs a big performance from his players to get through and his big players have to perform on the night."

Moyes is expected to ring the changes tonight after choosing to rest a number of his first-team stars against Newcastle at the weekend.

Manchester United trio Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are all expected to return to the fold against Bayern Munich - after being rested against Newcastle on Saturday.

Moyes - on the other hand - will be unable to call on the services of the injured Rafael and Marouane Fellaini.
