Treble Reunion: Your guide to Sunday's match

Twenty years on from that famous night in Barcelona, Manchester United's Treble-winning stars will face Bayern Munich again, this time at Old Trafford.

Hosted by the Manchester United Foundation, Sunday's match (kick-off 15:00 BST) will celebrate two decades to the day since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's stoppage-time winner at the Nou Camp made football history by securing the Champions League trophy on the back of claiming the Premier League title and FA Cup.

With Sir Alex Ferguson returning to the dugout as manager for the day, and some of the greats of English and German football gracing the Theatre of Dreams, Sunday afternoon could well be one to savour.

Class of ’92 graduates David Beckham, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes will make up the midfield, alongside Jesper Blomqvist and Jonathan Greening, while in attack our four fab forwards from 1998/99, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke, Teddy Sheringham and of course our current manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are in the squad.

Three regular players in previous Legends matches and keen supporters of Manchester United Foundation - Karel Poborsky, Louis Saha and Mikael Silvestre - are also set to play a part in the game.

The team will be managed once again by our legendary former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, with Steve McClaren serving as assistant and former Reds captain Bryan Robson as head coach.

WHAT ABOUT BAYERN?

The German outfit will field seven players from their 1998/99 squad – defenders Markus Babbel and Sammy Kuffour, midfielders Stefan Effenberg, Thorsten Fink and Lothar Matthaus, and forwards Giovane Elber and Carsten Jancker. Of those players, five started the Champions League final against United 20 years ago – Babbel, Kuffour, Effenberg, Matthaus and Jancker.
 
Former 1. FC Kaiserslautern boss Michael Henke will take charge for the visitors, who will be assisted by player manager Klaus Augenthaler - the former Bayern defender who played at the club for 15 years and went on to be assistant manager under five different coaches.
