Manchester United have announced their travelling squad for their first Champions League game in over a year when they take on Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena tomorrow night.

The game is crucial for United and the Red Devils are due to fly out tonight with Erik ten Hag set to have his pre-match press conference tonight.

United know this will be a pressure game due to the importance of the game and the pressure the Red Devils are under following their poor start to the new season.

A win in the Champions League could well be the kickstart that the club needs after a poor season and a win may well do the club the world of good.

United’s confirmed squad

United’s travelling squad for Bayern Munich game:

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.

United have not included Mason Mount and Raphael Varane in their squad for the game, despite the pair being pictured in training earlier, and this will come as a disappointment for Erik ten Hag.

Importance of this game

Despite two relative European minnows in Galatasaray and FC Copenhagen being drawn into the group alongside United, this game against Bayern is still a huge one for the Red Devils not just for how the group could look but also for the confidence it would give to a squad currently bereft of exactly that.

United’s form away from home against the so-called big sides is atrocious at best. Ten Hag’s side didn’t pick up a single win away from home against the Premier League’s big seven sides, Newcastle United included.

A win against Thomas Tuchel’s side won’t be easy but with two of Ten Hag’s most important players returning to the squad, then the side have to believe they can get something from Munich.
