Manchester United were handed the toughest possible draw for the Champions League quarter-final – Bayern Munich.
Before the draw happened, there was no expectation of United reaching the semi-finals and now that we have been drawn against the holders Bayern, that expectation has remained the same which, if anything, could play to United’s advantage.
Do you think Manchester United can overcome the odds to go through? Here’s how Twitter reacted to the draw against Bayern.
In a way drawing Bayern is good news for Moyes. Losing to the greatest team in the world is expected/forgivable; victory would be remarkable

Not ideal but it's a European Cup quarter final against the reigning champions. If you can't get excited about that then what's the point?

We can beat Bayern if only we play with urgency, determination and utilize every little chance. Always remember no Team is unbeatable!

No way the Bayern midfield can live with Giggs and Fellaini

We should lull Bayern into a false sense of security by getting spanked by City, next week.

Good thing United do lots of training without a ball.

This could be United’s last two Champions League games for 18 months so Old Trafford is going to be absolutely rocking when Bayern come to town in April.
On paper, United are going to get torn apart by Bayern but as we showed against Real Madrid last year, it isn’t always the team who is playing the best who goes through.
