Bayern Munich vs Manchester United: official lineups for the Clash of the Titans in Group A

Bayern Munich is gearing up for its Champions League campaign as they prepare to face a struggling Manchester United side on Wednesday evening. This highly anticipated match will undoubtedly be the highlight of Group A, which also includes Galatasaray and Copenhagen. Both teams will be looking to assert their dominance and secure a strong start to their European campaign.

The absence of key players such as Neuer and Coman will be felt by Bayern Munich, with both being relegated to the bench for this fixture. The Bavarians will line up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Upamecano and Kim forming the central defensive partnership in front of Ulreich. Laimer and Davies will occupy the full-back positions, providing defensive cover on the flanks. Kimmich and Goretzka will assume their roles as the midfield pivot, while the attacking trio of Müller, Musiala, and Sané will provide support to the lone striker, Kane.

On the other hand, Manchester United is dealing with an injury crisis, with several key players unavailable for selection. The absence of Varane, Maguire, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Mount, Antony, and Sancho will undoubtedly pose a challenge for Ten Hag’s side. In response, the Red Devils will field a defense consisting of Dalot, Lindelöf, Martinez, and Reguilon. In attack, Pellistri, Fernandes, Rashford, and Hojlund will be tasked with finding the back of the net.
