Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm BST. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the game will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live.


Having successfully defended their Bundesliga crown this year, Bayern rested most of their first team players in their previous fixture against Augsburg. The reigning German and European champions suffered their first defeat of the season, losing 1-0 at the Impuls Arena, courtesy of Sascha Molders' solitary goal.

Nevertheless, they remain on top of the Bundesliga table with 78 points, 20 ahead of second placed Borussia Dortmund with five matches remaining to play till the end of the season.

Pep Guardiola's side forced a 1-1 draw against United at Old Trafford last Tuesday. The hosts opened the scoring in the 58th minute, when Nemanja Vidic headed home from a corner only to witness Bastian Schweinsteiger level the scores eight minutes later.

David Moyes' side registered their second straight victory in the Premier League after beating Newcastle United at St James' Park. Juan Mata nicked a brace scoring on either side of the half-time whistle while Javier Hernandez and Adnan Januzaj too got their names on the score sheet to complete a 4-0 rout against the home side.

The Red Devils have no chance of defending their league title this season and are languishing seventh in the table with 57 points from 33 matches, seven points behind fourth-placed Arsenal. They also run the risk of missing out on Champions League football next season if they don't finish fourth or if they fail to win the European competition this year.

Bayern have an away goal to slightly ease pressure off their backs and will have majority of their first team players fresh and ready for Wednesday. However, United will be keen to surprise the Bavarians by eliminating them from the competition, as the continental tournament is their only chance of winning silverware this season.

What Managers Say

Pep Guardiola: "We have to make sure we keep our form, we can't allow to happen what happened in Manchester, we must not concede a goal. We spoke with the team about what to do to win. They defend deep and hit you on the break, which is what makes them very good. It's not easy against English teams. One-all is a risky scoreline, we could not win in Manchester. But I am sure we will go through. We need a good performance and we want to win the game."

David Moyes: "We've given ourselves every opportunity and prepared really well. We have to go into this game knowing it's a cup final for us. We want to be in the Champions League final but we have to win this cup final first. The players are ready. They know it's a big task but it's one we're all relishing. It's the sort of fixture United have always been involved in over the years and had a good record. We're going to have to show that again."
