Inspiration from the past

Manchester United can take heart from rivals Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea when they travel to Bayern Munich next week looking for the result that will knock the holders.

City, Chelsea and Arsenal, twice, have all avoided defeat in Munich in the last two years.

City came from 2-0 down to beat Bayern 3-2 in a group stage match in December, Arsenal won there last season and drew 1-1 in the Round of 16 last month while Chelsea beat Bayern on their own turf to win the Champions League in 2012.

United themselves won 5-0 on their last visit to Germany when they swamped Bayer Leverkusen in the group stage.
