Vidic: Manchester United can hurt Bayern

Manchester United center back Nemanja Vidic is convinced that his side is capable of causing Bayern Munich problems in the second leg of their Champions League tie at Allianz Arena.

The Serb headed United into an unlikely lead at Old Trafford in the first leg on Tuesday night before Bastian Schweinsteiger equalized to leave the tie finely poised with 90 minutes left to play.

And, despite the Red Devils still being underdogs to go through to the semifinal, Vidic believes that their pace in attacking areas will cause problems for Bayern's defense.

Speaking to ITV Sport after the game he said: "It was a tough game. We had a good result at 1-0, we felt we were in good positions.

"We were solid but one mistake we were punished and they showed what a good team they are. They had a lot of possession tonight. We accept it was going to be most of the game in our half but we tried to go on the counterattack.

"In the Champions League we've played quite well. Other games I think we've defended well, we've played as a team and we're a bigger threat on the counterattack. Against Liverpool it was a different game. They let us have the ball and they played on the counterattack. That's why we struggled."

The center back then looked ahead to the second leg, which is set for April 9.

"It will be the same game [in the second leg at the Allianz Arena]. They're going to have a lot of possession at their ground. We have to keep the shape, stick together and with the players up front with pace I think we can hurt them."
