Bayern in last four

MUNICH, Germany - Holders Bayern Munich romped into the Champions League semi-finals with a 3-1 victory at home to Manchester United in yesterday's quarter-final, second-leg to win 4-2 on aggregate.

Having drawn 1-1 at Old Trafford in last week's first-leg, Bayern had to come from behind after United's left-back Patrice Evra put the guests ahead with a superb second-half strike at Munich's Allianz Arena.

But Bayern equalised just 69 seconds later through a diving Mario Mandzukic header, the first of their three goals in the final half an hour.

Thomas Mueller then tapped Bayern into the lead before Arjen Robben slotted the hosts third to knock David Moyes's United out of the competition and keep the defending champion on course for the May 24 final in Lisbon.

"I thought the players did a great job tonight, the only crime was that we let them equalise just a few seconds later," said Moyes.

Defensive midfielder Michael Carrick said the United squad were devastated to have thrown away the lead in Munich.

"We're bitterly disappointed to go out," said Carrick.
