Manchester United boss David Moyes has stressed the importance of playing a possession-based game against Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

The two teams lock horns at Munich's Allianz Arena for a spot in the Champions League semi-final with the German champions having an away goal advantage.

The 1-1 draw at Old Trafford means that all the Bavarians have to do is to secure a goalless draw to keep their dream of winning a second consecutive Champions League alive.

However, Moyes hopes that his team will perform better on the day to secure a positive result.


"I'd like to have more possession and have a bigger effect on the game, and my plans are to do that", the 50-year-old told his club's official site.

"But they were also my plans in the first game as well. The quality of Bayern at times was very good.

"You have to respect your opponents and on the night they did some good things. But I expect us to play better.

"We're almost treating it like a cup final."

The team from Manchester have shown hints of form recently in the league, having won back-to-back matches against Aston Villa and Newcastle United, and are currently placed seventh in the table with five matches to go.
