Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich: Lineups

Oliver Hardt

Bayern Munich and Manchester United have both mixed up their regular teams.

Manchester United's back line issues have forced David Moyes to field a back four that looks like it's ready to get picked apart. Even though Antonio Valencia is fit enough to start, Moyes has opted to play him on the wing and put Phil Jones at right back, as opposed to starting Valencia at fullback and keeping Rio Ferdinand on the bench. The other slight surprise is that Danny Welbeck appears to be starting up top, though it's possible that United's lineup is actually a 4-3-3 with Welbeck on the right, Wayne Rooney at center forward and Ryan Giggs in midfield.

Pep Guardiola has chosen to go with Thomas Müller as his center forward. Bayern Munich also start Philipp Lahm in midfield, with Javi Martinez taking Dante's spot in the center of the defense.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): David De Gea; Alexander Buttner, Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, Phil Jones; Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick; Ryan Giggs, Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia; Danny Welbeck

Bayern Munich (4-3-3): Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Javi Martinez, Jerome Boateng, Rafinha; Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos; Franck Ribery, Thomas Müller, Arjen Robben

Kickoff is at 7:45 p.m. local time, 2:45 p.m. ET from Old Trafford. You can catch the game on FOX Sports 1 in the U.S., ITV in the U.K. and Sportsnet Regional networks in Canada.
