Berbatov misses out altogether as teams are confirmed with Rooney and Hernandez starting up front for United, while Puyol begins as substitute for Barca
United striker Dimitar Berbatov does not make the match squad, while midfielder Darren Fletcher has recovered from a virus but is named among the subs.
- Puyol left on the bench, Mascherano starts at centre-back.
- Abidal fit to play at left-back.
- Messi set to play through the middle.
- 4-4-1-1/4-2-3-1 with Rooney behind Chicharito up front.
- Rafael omitted: Fabio plays right-back alongside an entirely first-choice defence.
- Darren Fletcher only makes the bench, with Giggs reprising his central role.
- Chicharito will lead the line with Berbatov left out entirely, failing even to make the bench.
