Nemanja Vidic puts Manchester United ahead, stuns everyone

Somehow, some way, Manchester United lead Bayern Munich in their Champions League quarterfinal tie. Their hero is Nemanja Vidic, who scored with an absolutely brilliant header off a corner. He was going backwards and directed it perfectly. It was amazing. Take a look.

United have looked okay on the counter attack and have defended pretty well, but never looked like actually taking the lead. Bayern have set up shop in the United half all match and have controlled the game in every way, though they haven't been particularly good in front of goal. Thomas Müller, who started up top, has been particularly poor.

Unsurprisingly, Bayern will make a change. They have Mario Mandzukic on their bench, and they're going to use him.

Oh, and if United manage to hang on to this result? Well, that would set up an absolutely must-watch second leg at the Allianz Arena. If Bayern can't pick up an away goal, United might actually have a shot at the upset.
