Schweinsteiger and Martínez out of return

When Manchester United visit the Allianz Arena next Wednesday for the Champions League quarter-final return, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martínez will be condemned to the role of spectators. In the first leg at Old Trafford, Schweinsteiger was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 90th minute, with Martínez earlier picking up a third yellow card of the competition. On the plus side Dante is eligible again next week after serving a one-match ban on Tuesday.

Robben named 'Man of the Match'

Arjen Robben was named Man of the Match in the meeting with Manchester United. UEFA’s expert jury and fans voting on uefa.com confirmed the accolade for the Dutchman. Robben was at the heart of many of Bayern’s best attacking moves and easily topped the charts for shots at goal with six – equalling the entire Manchester United total on the night.
