Early team news: Bayern Munich v United
Manchester United conclude pre-season with a mouthwatering clash against German champions Bayern Munich on Sunday evening.
Jose Mourinho will be using the friendly as a final opportunity to prepare for the Reds' opening game of the Premier League season, which takes place against Leicester City at Old Trafford next Friday night.
A final decision needs to be made on their availabilty, following the squad's arrival back from Tour 2018, presented by Aon, in the United States.
Jose will be hoping to hand out more vital playing time ahead of the Leicester game.
Antonio Valencia is still missing with a calf injury, while Nemanja Matic is also likely to remain sidelined.
New signing Diogo Dalot is also ruled out, and it remains to be seen if Chris Smalling will be involved after missing the last two pre-season matches.
HOW ARE BAYERN SHAPING UP?
Like United, Bayern have competed in the International Champions Cup during pre-season. The German side started with a 3-1 victory against Paris Saint-Germain, which they then followed up with successive defeats to Juventus and Manchester City.
Surprisingly, only one Bayern player - Corentin Tolisso - made it beyond the last-16 stage of the World Cup, meaning new manager Niko Kovac is expected to have most of his first-team squad available for Sunday’s game.
The former Croatia captain joined the club in the summer from Eintracht Frankfurt, ironically his first competitive opponents as Bayern boss in next week’s German Super Cup final, which is the equivalent of the Community Shield.
HOW CAN I WATCH THE MATCH?
The match will kick off at 19:15 BST on Sunday (20:15 CEST local time) and will be live on MUTV (UK/IRE only).
