United squad revealed for Bayern Munich game

Tuesday 19 September 2023 15:30

Manchester United's travelling squad for our UEFA Champions League opener against Bayern Munich has been confirmed.

Erik ten Hag's side take on the Bundesliga champions at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday evening, with kick-off in the Group A clash set for 20:00 BST.

And 21 players made the trip from Manchester to Munich on Tuesday afternoon, ahead of what is always one of European football's most anticipated fixtures.

Bayern and United first met in the 1998/99 season and the two clubs have faced off 11 times in total.

The Reds, victors of the famous 1999 final between the sides at the Nou Camp in Barcelona, are still seeking a first win against the Bavarian outfit on their own turf.

Four of our summer signings are on the plane, with Altay Bayindir, Rasmus Hojlund, Andre Onana and Sergio Reguilon all bidding to make a first appearance in European competition for the club.

There's also a youthful seam to the squad, as Hannibal - fresh from scoring his maiden United goal on Saturday - joins the likes of Dan Gore and Omari Forson in Ten Hag's selection.

Harry Maguire will miss out on the trip due to injury, as his name is added to a list of Reds' absentees.


Goalkeepers: Altay Bayindir, Tom Heaton, Andre Onana, Radek Vitek.

Defenders: Victor Lindelof, Lisandro Martinez, Sergio Reguilon, Diogo Dalot, Jonny Evans.

Midfielders: Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro, Facundo Pellistri, Scott McTominay, Dan Gore, Hannibal.

Forwards: Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Rasmus Hojlund, Alejandro Garnacho, Omari Forson.
