New, comments

Bayern made already the biggest Champions League squad a little bigger.

Already with one of the largest roster in the UEFA Champions League, Bayern Munich have added two more players to the roster: second-team midfielder Fabian Benko and U19 Goalkeeper David Hundertmark

Bayern included Benko on the bench on Tuesday along with Gianluca Gaudino after Arturo Vidal and Sebastian Rode suffered injuries. Benko signed a professional contract in early September after having an impressive preseason with the first team. The 17-year-old has seven appearances with Bayern II this season and also played in Bayern U19's 0-1 loss to Olympiakos U19 in mid-September.

David Hundertmark was the goalkeeper in the loss, and also was between the pipes for their 1-2 loss to Dinamo Zagreb U19 on Tuesday. In fact, Hundertmark has played every minute as Bayern's U19's goalkeeper in his second season with the team. The 18-year-old also made the bench in nine Bayern II matches last season, but has yet to make his debut in a men's division.

Both players are "List B" players, who have to be born after 1994 and have two years registered as a Bayern player with UEFA. Bayern are allowed to add players to this list before a group stage match. The club now has seven "List B" players in their squad, making their squad now 32 players big.
