How the two sides will start at the Allianz Arena.
It’s a huge clash in the Champions League quarter-finals as Bayern Munich host Manchester United in the second-leg of their tie, with things poised at 1-1.
Much to many peoples’ surprise, struggling United managed to secure a draw with the reigning champions at Old Trafford last week and stand a chance of making the final four.
However, with home advantage at the Allianz Arena, Bayern will still certainly be the favourites to progress and are looking to become the first team to win this tournament in successive years since its rebranding back in 1992.
For the hosts both Thiago Alcantara and Xherdan Shaqiri are out injured, whilst Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger are suspended.
Despite that head coach Pep Guardiola has named an attacking lineup with both Thomas Muller and Mario Mandzukic starting.

As for the Red Devils, there is good news for manager David Moyes as Wayne Rooney has recovered sufficiently from a foot injury to start.
Defenders Chris Smalling and Patrice Evra are both back in the XI as well, whilst Darren Fletcher is in central midfield with Michael Carrick.
