Bastian Schweinsteiger scored an equaliser for Bayern Munich and was then sent off as the holders drew 1-1 with Manchester United in the first leg of their Champions League quarterfinal at Old Trafford.

United, floundering in the English Premier League under new manager David Moyes, confounded grim pre-game predictions on Tuesday (Wednesday morning NZ time) by taking the lead in the 58th minute through Nemanja Vidic's header from a corner.

However, Bayern will take a crucial away goal into next week's second leg in Germany after Schweinsteiger finally found a cutting edge to his team's fine build-up play, arrowing a half-volley high into the net in the 67th.

The Germany midfielder blotted his performance by picking up a second yellow card in the 90th minute for a foul on Wayne Rooney.
