The Final of the Audi Cup live from the Allianz Arena will see Bayern Munich the hosts take on Real Madrid in what should be a good game even if it is just a glorified pre season friendly. Real Madrid handled their semi final against Tottenham well with Gareth Bale the star of the show in the absence of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema who are back in Madrid nursing small knocks according to Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez. Real though have an abundance of superstars and youngsters breaking through and with Isco, Jese, Rodriguez, Bale, Modric and Ramos there is more than enough talent here in Germany to make this a competitive game.
Bayern Munich were very impressive at times in their semi final demolition of Milan.Goals from Lewandowsk, Goetze and one from Bernat in the first half were the difference with former Juventus playmaker Arturo Vidal getting his first start for the club. Guardiola's side were without Ribery and Robben in that game and Muller and Lewandowski were only second half sustitutes but it just shows the strength in depth of this Munich side that they can beat an almost full strength Milan with what essentially was half a team. Tonight against Real Madrid I think Guardiola will start something close to his full strength team but it is impossible to know until we see the line ups.
Given that it is a pre season friendly though just a min bet for interest here for me. I'm going to take both teams to score just because I think this will be an open game and both teams should go for it from the off just for entertainment purposes.
