Manchester United and Bayern Munich meet again in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday night.

Here are three memorable encounters between two of European football's biggest clubs.

April 7 2010: Champions League quarter-final second leg. Manchester United 3-2 Bayern Munich (Aggregate score: 4-4. Bayern win on away goals)

United raced into a 3-0 lead thanks to a brace from Nani and a rare Darron Gibson strike. That was enough to put United 4-3 up on aggregate, but after the break it all went wrong for Sir Alex Ferguson's team.

Rafael picked up a second booking for tugging Franck Ribery's shirt and Bayern capitalised on their numerical advantage. Ivica Olic and Arjen Robben scored in the second half to send Bayern through on away goals.

Ferguson accused Bayern of deliberately trying to get Rafael sent off. "Typical Germans," the Scot fumed afterwards.

April 18 2001: Champions League quarter-final second leg. Bayern Munich 2-1 Manchester United (Munich win 3-1 on aggregate).

Bayern knocked United out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage again. Paulo Sergio gave Munich a 1-0 lead from the first leg at Old Trafford and the Germans cruised to victory in the second leg.

Giovane Elber gave Bayern the lead in the fifth minute and Mehmet Scholl made it 2-0 before Ryan Giggs chipped in with a consolation goal for the Red Devils.

May 26 1999: Champions League final. Bayern Munich 1-2 Manchester United.

A date that will be etched on the memory of every United fan in the world. Mario Basler gave Bayern an early lead in the Nou Camp and the Germans controlled the match right up until injury time. In the 91st minute United won a corner.

Sensing this was their last chance to steal the win, Peter Schmeichel ventured forward. David Beckham's corner sailed over the goalkeeper's head and was cleared to Ryan Giggs, whose shot was turned past Oliver Khan by Teddy Sheringham.

Less then two minutes later, Sheringham nodded the ball across the box from another corner and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tapped in from close range to seal the most dramatic win in the club's history.
