Bayern Munich have confirmed goalkeeper Sven Ulreich ‘will miss’ the Champions League clash against Manchester United.

The German champions will make a trip to England today, to prepare for Tuesday’s tie at Old Trafford. The 35-year-old has been left out of the travelling squad after suffering an ankle injury.

He started as the first-choice stopper for Bayern and featured in his side’s 4-3 win over Manchester United in September.

Ulreich has settled for a place on the bench since Manuel Neuer regained full fitness towards the end of October. He was expected to be a substitute even if he was fit to face Erik ten Hag’s side.

His teammate, Matthijs de Ligt, will also not travel with the squad. The centre-back, who has been nursing a knee injury since November, and Bayern have confirmed the 24-year-old is still ‘training individually’ at Säbener Straße.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have qualified for the knockout stage but could be looking for a win against the Red Devils to bounce back from the 5-1 defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt at the weekend.

Manchester United are bottom of the table, trailing FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray, by a point.

Ten Hag’s side will need a win to maintain the hope of making it to the next round of the Champions League.
