David Moyes' men turned in a valiant display against Bayern Munich on Wednesday evening, despite losing 3-1 at Allianz Arena.
A stunning Patrice Evra goal had injected renewed belief into the United ranks, but it proved an all-too-brief moment of euphoria as the home side hit back with ruthless ingenuity and showcased exactly why they are the current holders of the Champions League.
Although the Reds' European ventures are over for this year, the quarter-final tie will live long in the memory for the 3000-odd travelling United fans as the Allianz transformed into a cauldron of noise and colour.
Thankfully, club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to snap all the matchday action.
