Striker Ivica Olic scored in stoppage time to give his team a dramatic 2-1 victory against Manchester United in their Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.

Olic scored from close range with almost the last kick of the match to hand United their first away loss in the competition this season.

Franck Ribery saw his 20-metre free kick deflected off the wall in the 77th minute for the equaliser to cancel out a second-minute volley from Wayne Rooney.

In front of a sold-out 66,000 crowd, Bayern were largely kept out of the box by a steely United defence in the first half but upped the pressure after the break and were rewarded with the late winner by the Croatia international.

Olympique Lyon's Argentine striker Lisandro Lopez scored twice to help his side beat Girondins Bordeaux 3-1 in a lively first leg of the Champions League's first all-French quarter-final on Tuesday.

Hosts Lyon, hoping to make the last four of European club soccer's premier competition for the first time, opened the scoring through Lisandro but were pegged back minutes with a splendid goal by Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh.

Lyon made it 2-1 courtesy of Brazilian winger Michel Bastos around the half hour and a Lisandro penalty 13 minutes from time gave them a significant advantage over French champions Bordeaux, who ended Lyon's seven-year reign at the top of Ligue 1 last year.

Bordeaux have the edge over Lyon in Ligue 1 this season but the home side, who have reached the quarter-finals three times before, showed their greater Champions League experience with this victory.
