Manchester United fans unveil stunning Champions League mosaic

Manchester United supporters will create a stunning mosaic moments before kick off in Tuesday night's Champions League quarter-final first leg against Bayern Munich.

The mosaic, created by Stretford End flags, will be spread across the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand lower, the East Stand lower and the Stretford End lower tiers - and show the word 'United' in the middle of two Red Devils from the club's emblem.

Manchester United supporters have organised similar mosaics in past seasons ahead of crunch Champions League ties. Back in 2008, before the Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona, the 'Believe' mosaic may - or may not - have played a pivotal role in helping the Red Devils advance to the final.

Stretford End Flags are also the group responsible for the controversial "The Chosen One" banner, which has attracted plenty of media attention in recent weeks. However, they are unlikely to attract any negative publicity with this latest mosaic.

Manchester United are not expected to beat European champions Bayern Munich over the two-legged tie, but will give themselves every chance of advancing to the Champions League semi-finals by avoiding defeat at Old Trafford.

Whether or not the 'United' mosaic can inspire the United players, however, remains to be seen.
