Manchester United manager David Moyes has asked his players to treat the game against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena as a cup final and believes that they have enough experience of playing in big games.

Moyes thinks it’s a great opportunity for the players to prove themselves after a disappointing domestic campaign and has asked them to treat the game as a cup final.

"We've given ourselves every opportunity and prepared really well. We have to go into this game knowing it's a cup final for us”, the Scot told the club’s official site.


“We want to be in the Champions League final but we have to win this cup final first. From that point of view we can't leave anything [behind] on the night and make sure that we go through."

The 50-year-old believes that his players are ready to take up the challenge and big games are nothing new for some of the older heads in the squad.

"The players are ready. They know it's a big task but it's one we're all relishing.

“It's the sort of fixture United have always been involved in over the years and had a good record. We're going to have to show that again."

Manchester United have been involved in three of the last six Champions League finals. In 2007/08 they beat Chelsea 6-5 on penalties to lift the crown, but in both the finals in 2008/09 and 2010/11, they were beaten by Barcelona.
