9:54 am on 31 March 2010

A stoppage time goal has given Bayern Munich a dramatic 2-1 home win over Manchester United in their Champions League quarter-final first leg match in Germany.

United score in only the second minute when Wayne Rooney got his 34th goal of the season and Bayern didn't equalise until the 77th minute when Franck Ribery's 20-metre free kick deflected in off the defensive wall .

The Croatian striker Ivica Olic's winner handed United their first away loss in the competition this season in front of a sold-out 66,000 crowd.

Olympique Lyon beat Girondins Bordeaux 3-1 in the first all-French quarter-final .

The winners face Manchester United or Bayern Munich in the semi-finals to try to become the first French club to play the Champions League final since Monaco lost it to Porto in 2004.
