There are fewer confirmed names for Bayern Munich but they are: Lucio, Carsten Jancker, Martin Demichelis, Ze Roberto, and Giovane Elber.

The teams will be lead out by players from the 1975 final, including Norman Hunter and Peter Lorimer.

Tickets start at £5 for kids and £20 for Adults. The game falls in an international break so this could alleviate some of the inevitable boredom that comes with that.
