Starting: We’re at Lambo Stadium! Can Bayern Munich beat Manchester City before the start of the season?
Update #2: The game should start soon! No longer waiting now. We got lucky there.
Modernization: The game was delayed due to thunderstorms on the ground. It looks like Pep Guardiola and Julian Nagelsmann will have to wait a bit for the match of wits against each other. We will update you when Bayern Munich starts against Manchester City.
1 hour until kickoff: We have a queue! Julian Nagelsmann chose to start a very strong squad made up of most of his main starters. Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, and Kingsley Coman started in the lead with Bayern Munich, while Joshua Kimmich and Marcel Sabitzer take over the midfield. Benjamin Pavard and Alfonso Davies flank the central defence, with Matisse de Ligt oddly absent. In fact, all new deals are missing today.
It looks like Naggs wants the veterans to play at least the first half.
It’s just getting started but pre-season is already slipping, but not without at least one other big game on the calendar. Bayern Munich face Manchester City at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin in a game that should give us a good idea of how the two teams will develop for next season.
Given that both Bayern and City play their domestic Super Cup matches within a week, both teams should be at the same level of preparation. However, Julian Nagelsmann will be without key players such as Leon Goretzka (injury) and Sadio Mane (in Germany) for the match, while Pep Guardiola is looking forward to his illustrious new signing at Erling Haaland.
Heading into the game, most people have the following questions:
- Can Bayern Munich score without Robert Lewandowski?
- Can Bayern’s midfield withstand the Man City press?
- Can Bayern defense keep a clean sheet? (mostly not)
As for the answers – we just have to watch and find out.
