 We were asleep at the start and Man U were superior in every aspect. At 3-0, I would not have bet even a cent on Bayern. But they turned it around magnificently. Two moments were decisive: the goal for 3-1 from Olic just before the break and then Rafael's red card. Bayern then played with composure, let the ball roll and Robben then scored a dream goal. It was one of the most beautiful defeats in Bayern Munich's history.
