The club say that winning Wednesday's game would be the perfect tribute to their lost generation who were denied that chance.
Eight of the club's players and 15 other passengers were claimed by the disaster on 6 February, 1958, when British European Airways Flight 609 crashed on its third attempt to take-off after stopping in Munich to refuel.
United were on their way back from a match against Red Star Belgrade, where Matt Busby's young team had secured a place in the semi-finals of the European Cup with a 3-3 draw.
Morgans believes that his lost team could have gone on to be the "best side in the world", but he has high praise for the United class of 2008.
"They're absolutely brilliant, you can name Ronaldo, Rooney, Scholes... you could go through the entire team," said Morgans, who joined Busby's youth revolution at Old Trafford on leaving school in the summer of 1955 after being spotted playing for the Welsh Schoolboys side.
"Ryan Giggs will break Bobby Charlton's appearance record if he plays on Wednesday and he has just been a fantastic player, you never hear a bad thing about him.
"I think that United have to be favourites and that they will be coming home with the double."
