On the eve of a Champions League quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich that most pundits expect them to lose, Manchester United's veteran midfielder, Ryan Giggs, has tried to talk up his side's chances.

Quote of the day

But we are Manchester United and at Old Trafford we have had so many great nights. We don’t see ourselves as underdogs; we see ourselves as Manchester United playing at home. It is going to be tough, but it is always is in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. We are looking forward to it.”

The only member of the memorable 1999 Champions League triumph over Bayern Munich still playing, Giggs refuses to be intimidated by the prospect of facing the all-conquering Bundesliga champions.
