Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Match Preview
Real Madrid’s £270million worth of new signings will be queuing up to make their debuts in this game – headed, of course, by the latest Galactico star attraction, Eden Hazard.
The Belgian wizard is among five big-money recruits by Real this summer as they try to rise again from a disappointing campaign, with the others being Brazilian teenager Rodrygo, Croatian striker Luka Jovic and defenders Ferland Mendy and Eder Militao.
Zinedine Zidane’s men have been training in Montreal and fly south to Texas for this game with a squad that also includes players who have been strongly linked with moves away, such as Gareth Bale, Isco and Lucas Vazquez.
Bayern, meanwhile, already have a pre-season game under their belt in an International Champions Cup defeat to Arsenal, 2-1 in Los Angeles, where Robert Lewandowski equalised for the German champions only for them to concede a late winner.
However, manager Niko Kovac adopted the modern policy of fielding two entirely different line-ups in each half whereas Arsenal opted for more continuity, and that may just have put Bayern at a disadvantage.
There may be a fitness edge for the kings of the Bundesliga here, but Real Madrid’s new boys should be very keen to make an early impression and Zidane’s side are backed to edge it.
