Man Utd end Marseille's Europe quest

Text by News Wires

Latest update : 2011-03-16

A double by striker Hernandez helped Manchester United defeat a worthy Marseille side at Old Trafford on Tuesday, while title holders Inter Milan battled past Bayern Munich to join the Red Devils in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

AP - Holder Inter Milan staged a second-half comeback Tuesday to oust Bayern Munich in a repeat of last season's final and Manchester United advanced to the Champions League quarterfinals for the fifth consecutive season by beating Marseille.

Pandev's 88th-minute goal for Inter earned a 3-2 victory at Bayern that sent the Serie A side through on away goals, having lost 1-0 at the San Siro.

Inter is only the second team in Champions League history to overturn a first-leg home defeat to advance.

United's victory over Marseille was more routine, with Javier Hernandez scoring twice to secure a 2-1 victory after the match in France was drawn 0-0.
