Manchester United face their biggest test of the season yet as they take on European champions Bayern Munich at Old Trafford tomorrow evening. 

David Moyes' side head into the game on the back of a fine 4-1 win over Aston Villa this past weekend and will be desperate to gain a positive result in the first leg of the Champions League quart-final tie. 

After United's convincing win against Paul Lambert's side, the Red Devils boss looks set to make a couple of changes for tomorrow's clash. 

Manchester United could start with the same 'keeper and back four that starred on Saturday, with Alex Buttner keeping his place in the side ahead of the suspended Patrice Evra. Rafael, Phil Jones and captain Nemanja Vidic should make up the rest of the back-line as United target a clean sheet against the German champions. 

Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck, who didn't feature last weekend, could replace Ashley Young and the cup tied Juan Mata in the side. The Red Devils boss will be hoping that the pace of Welbeck and Valencia can help the full-backs when defending against the likes of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben. 

Michael Carrick was also left out of the team on Saturday, but should start alongside either Marouane Fellaini or Ryan Giggs in the centre of midfield. Japanese international Shinji Kagawa has been in fine form in recent weeks and could play off Wayne Rooney who looks set to start in attack. 

The Red Devils will be desperate to gain a first leg lead ahead of the return leg at the Allianz Arena, but it could prove a tricky night for Moyes and Co. 

Manchester United: Predicted XI vs Bayern - De Gea, Rafael, Vidic, Jones, Buttner, Valencia, Carrick, Fellaini, Welbeck, Kagawa, Rooney
