Order your programme for United v RB Leipzig
Hot on the heels of that outstanding victory over Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday on our return to Champions League action, we are gearing up to host our first home game in the competition for 16 months when RB Leipzig visit Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
The cover, inspired by the Sir Matt Busby quote ‘Football is nothing without fans’ which adorns the Stretford End at the moment, features a colourful image of the Red Army cheering on the lads from the stands in our last Champions League game in M16, against Barcelona in April 2019, and will be the first in a series of special fan covers for our Champions League programmes this season.

There is also a major section dedicated to RB Leipzig’s fascinating rise as they prepare to face United for the first time, having shaken up German and European football over the last few years.
A major new series sets the time machine back 30 years to recap our glorious European Cup-Winners’ Cup campaign of 1990/91, we recap what happened in matchday one of this season’s competition and there’s a hilarious anecdote from columnist Paddy Crerand as he recounts what happened when he tried to cross the border from West Berlin into East Germany in 1965.
“They’d all told me that we were going to lose, and I’d told them that we wouldn’t. So when we went on to win, I was overjoyed!”
All in all, it’s a brilliant and unmissable issue, priced at just £3.50 plus P&P.
