The best halftime tweets as Manchester United head into the interval drawing 0-0 at Bayern Munich
Anybody thinking that Manchester United would simply be blown off the park at Bayern Munich on Wednesday night had a shock in the opening 45 minute.
Antonio Valencia was the only player to have the ball in the back of the net in the first half, however the Ecuadorian’s effort was correctly ruled out for offside.
Arguably the highlight of the first half was seeing David Moyes take a painful hit on the sidelines.
Bayern, leading the tie on away goals, failed to create too many clear cut chances against the Red Devils, and the visitors had plenty to feel good about themselves at the break.
But can Manchester United score the all-important away goal after the break?

"United are close to getting the job half done…" Of getting knocked out on away goals?

Getting a whiff of the grim philosophical debate regarding "parking the bus." Who cares. It's a viable tactic. Not easy to execute, either.

It's a crying shame Fellaini's not playing if the referee's just not going to award any fouls

Lahm nowhere near the ball. And Vida got a yellow card for what? #fergiesright

HT: 0-0. As good a half from Chris Smalling as I can recall. MUFC defending a lot, but defending confidently. Now they need to score …

Defensive master class from United, David de Gea not had a save to make & they have made Bayern look very ordinary, so far!!
