PICTURE: Bayern's warning message to Manchester United

Champions League Trophy

As Manchester United prepare to face Bayern Munich this evening, the reigning European champions have reminded them of a previous match.

'Do you remember?'

That was the message that accompanied the picture above on Bayern Munich's official Instagram account as the German champions prepared to face Manchester United this evening.

It was of course in reference to Arjen Robben's wonder-strike that turned the 2010 quarter-final tie on its head.

With United 2-1 down from the first-leg, they played some outstanding football to surge into a 3-0 lead on what looked like being one of Old Trafford's most glorious nights.  And then came Rafael's red card and a huge change of fortune for the visiting Germans, Robben ultimately firing home from a Franck Ribery corner.

The flying Dutchman will again be on the pitch this evening, and United will beware a repeat.  But given the season they have endured so far, a repeat of that 3-2 scoreline may go down a treat...especially when you consider United's away form so far this season.
