Paul Parker: Bayern Munich will "revel in Old Trafford"

Paul Parker gives Manchester United little chance of knocking Bayern Munich out of the Champions League.

Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has insisted that David Moyes's side have done "nothing to suggest" that they will be able to overcome Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Last night's 3-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City was United's 10th in the Premier League this season, sixth of which have been suffered at Old Trafford.

With that form in mind, Parker has given the Red Devils little chance of overcoming the holders, who secured the Bundesliga title yesterday evening.

"You can't look at the match against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last eight with any optimism. They just can't. As much as people might say I'm being unfair or negative, it is difficult to be positive," the 49-year-old wrote in his Eurosport column.

"There is nothing to suggest Manchester United can take on Bayern over two games. Especially for a side who have lost at home to West Bromwich, Newcastle United and Everton. The fear factor at Old Trafford has gone.

"That ground has overwhelmed them because they don't have the right personnel. With Pep Guardiola in charge at Bayern Munich, there is no way his side are going to just coast through it. Munich have given their better performances in the Champions League away from home and I expect them to revel in Old Trafford just like Liverpool and Manchester City."

Bayern have avoided defeat from three of their four trips to Old Trafford.
