How to watch Man Utd vs Athletic Bilbao - live stream info and kick-off time

Manchester United will take on Athletic Bilbao in Dublin today in what will be their final pre-season fixture before the Premier League returns next week.

United have had a busy 24 hours after playing French side Lens at Old Trafford yesterday and now Erik ten Hag's men will be playing Bilbao at the Aviva Stadium in the Irish capital. Tickets for the clash have sold out with United expecting a crowd close to 60,000.

Going into the weekend United have endured a mixed pre-season so far with victories over Arsenal and Leeds offset by defeats by Wrexham, Real Madrid and Dortmund. However, Ten Hag has continued to add to his options with Rasmus Hojlund becoming his third summer signing.

The Danish international has signed from Atalanta for £72million and will finally give United the central striker they've been searching for. Hojlund is an exciting prospect with a promising goal record for the Danish national side and has earned his big money move thanks to a breakout season with the Serie A side.

He joins Mason Mount and Andre Onana, who signed from Chelsea and Inter Milan respectively, as United look to continue their upward trajectory under the Dutch coach.

It will be the third time that United have played at the Aviva, with a 7-1 win over a League of Ireland XI in 2010, followed by a 2-1 victory over Italian side Sampdoria six years ago. United last faced Athletic Club in the 2012 Europa League and, before that, in the 1957 European Cup, which was their first season in Europe.
