Moyes and Guardiola satisfied with draw

David Moyes hailed Manchester United FC's display in the 1-1 draw with FC Bayern München despite the disappointment of conceding, Josep Guardiola grateful for the away goal.

David Moyes, United manager
The players played very well. I was a bit disappointed that we conceded a goal but it was a really good performance. There was a real determination tonight to ensure we did well. It's a competition we've got really good history in. The fans were great tonight, there was a great atmosphere inside the ground.

[On Daniel Welbeck's first-half chance:] At this level you need to be clinical. When you get the chances, you have to take them.

We know we've got to score a goal in the second leg. We have to do something about it. But we know we've given ourselves a great opportunity. We'll go toe to toe with them. We wanted to go into it with a real chance. We've given ourselves a great opportunity to go to Munich and win. Our best football has been in this competition and we'll need our best football.

Josep Guardiola, Bayern coach
Congratulations to my team, I am quite satisfied. Manchester United have one of the best teams in the world, which shouldn't be forgotten. We scored an away goal which is quite important, but we also got lucky that the efforts from Welbeck and [Wayne] Rooney didn't go in.

The goal we conceded was difficult to defend. It's never easy to play against a team which defends so deeply. We will see if we can find some solutions for the match in Munich.

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martínez will miss the second leg [due to suspension] but we will field 11 players regardless. These things happen but we can cope with them.

It's always dangerous when you go into the second leg with a 1-1 draw, but even a 2-1 victory would have been dangerous for us. We will try to win the second leg and I am sure we can do it. I have full confidence in my players and hope the fans in Munich will push us like the United supporters did for their team today.
