Prelude to Champions: Bayern Munich and Manchester City’s Pre-Season Showdown

Key Stats
– This pre-season friendly is a rematch of a previous encounter, where Man City secured a narrow 1-0 win.
– Bayern’s pre-season began with an outstanding 27-0 victory against Rottach-Egern.
– Man City’s Erling Haaland is in top form, making him a likely scorer in the upcoming match.

The reigning Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich, are set to clash with Manchester City, the recent winners of a historic treble, in a pre-season friendly at Tokyo’s National Stadium. This encounter revives memories of their last friendly, just a year ago in the USA, where the Citizens clinched a narrow 1-0 victory, courtesy of Erling Haaland’s sole goal.

Bayern’s Quest for Dominance

Bayern Munich’s legacy of Bundesliga domination is undisputed, with the club clinching their 11th consecutive title last season. Coach Thomas Tuchel, who took over from Julian Nagelsmann mid-season, has already left a considerable mark, leading the Bavarian giants to the title in his first two months. Tuchel now gears up for his inaugural full season, tasked with upholding Bayern’s top-flight dominance and vying for Champions League glory.

Bayern’s previous Champions League journey ended in a 4-1 aggregate defeat to Man City. They now look to avenge this past defeat against a City side they’ve failed to beat in their last four encounters across all competitions. The Germans have kickstarted their pre-season with an impressive 27-0 victory against the ninth-tier team, Rottach-Egern, making a strong statement ahead of their clash with City.

City’s Asian Tour Begins

Man City embarked on their pre-season tour of Asia just six weeks after hoisting the Champions League trophy, marking their historic treble. The Citizens secured a thrilling 5-3 victory against Yokohama F Marinos, overcoming an initial two-goal deficit. Haaland showcased his skills with a second-half brace, signalling a promising follow-up to his remarkable 52-goal debut campaign in 2022-23. Despite the victory, coach Pep Guardiola sees room for improvement as his team gears up for the new season.

Guardiola is preparing for his 13th face-off against Tuchel and seeks his eighth win against the German. Post-Bayern, Man City are set to face Atletico Madrid in Seoul, marking their next stop in their pre-season tour.

Team News and Predicted Lineups

Bayern’s summer signing, Raphael Guerreiro, will be missing due to a muscle injury. Key players could feature on Wednesday, with rumors of their potential summer exit creating a stir.

For Man City, the key concern is Kevin De Bruyne, who’s recovering from a hamstring tear. Erling Haaland could replace Julian Alvarez upfront, with support from key players like Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, and Jack Grealish.

Predicted Lineups:

  • Bayern Munich: Ulreich; Mazraoui, Pavard, Upamecano, Davies; Kimmich, Laimer; Coman, Musiala, Sane; Gnabry
  • Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte; Stones, Rodri; Bernardo, Kovacic, Foden, Grealish; Haaland
