Manchester United and Bayern Munich drew 1-1 all in the first-leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Serbian international Nemanja Vidic opened the scoring for the hosts after heading the ball past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in the 58th minute.

Bayern’s Bastian Schweinsteiger equalised 8 minutes later after drilling the ball into the top corner from a Mario Mandzukic header down.

Elsehere Barcelona were held to a frustrating 1-1 draw by Atletico Madrid at the Camp Nou.

Diego, who nearly missed the game with an injury, unleashed a venomous shot just after the restart to put the visitors ahead leaving Jose-Manuel Pinto no chance.

Brazilian international Neymar equalised in the 71st minute after Andres Iniesta managed to split the Atletico defence with a perfect ball in behind three defenders.

The return leg will take place on April 9.
