Bayern name 19-man travelling squad

Monday 11 December 2023 11:36

Bayern Munich have flown a 19-man travelling squad to England for Tuesday's UEFA Champions League tie with Manchester United.

Coach Thomas Tuchel has lost the services of former Arsenal forward Serge Gnabry, who was injured in the shock 5-1 defeat at Eintracht Frankfurt on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Sven Ulreich has sustained an ankle problem and is unavailable, with Manuel Neuer, who played excellently against us in the semi-finals in 2010/11 for Schalke, back between the posts.

Harry Kane is expected to lead the line and he is looking to be the first Englishman to score against the Reds at Old Trafford in the competition.

What United need on matchday six


The Champions League permutations are clear for the Reds ahead of Tuesday's fixtures.

There is no Matthijs De Ligt, who played under Erik ten Hag at Ajax, as the centre-back is currently undergoing individual training in Munich.

Noussair Mazraoui, another member of Erik's impressive side in Amsterdam, is included in the squad.

United must beat Bayern to have any chance of making the knockout stages and we are also relying on FC Copenhagen drawing with Galatasaray in the other Group A tie.


Goalkeepers: Manuel Neuer, Daniel Peretz.

Defenders: Alphonso Davies, Raphael Guerreiro, Frans Kratzig, Noussair Mazraoui, Kim Min-jae, Dayot Upamecano.

Midfielders: Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, Konrad Laimer, Aleksandar Pavlovic.

Forwards: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, Kingsley Coman, Harry Kane, Thomas Muller, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane, Mathys Tel.
