With the Premier League set to start next week, Manchester United will play one more preseason friendly.  The Red Devils will take on German champions, Bayern Munich, in the final preseason game for Jose Mourinho’s team. With the regular season less than 10 days away, many of the top players should play which will mean great things on the pitch.

Manchester United beat Real Madrid in their last preseason friendly in Miami. The Red Devils looked dominant with both Alexis Sanchez and Ander Herrera both finding the back of the net. The English team will be concerned that they only had 29% of the possession and that is something that needs to improve in this match. It is important to note that the likes of Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic should return in this game which means that this factor should improve. This will be another great test for the Red Devils and it will be interesting to see how things pan out.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich will look to get a win. It has not been a great preseason for the team as they have lost their last 2 games. The World Cup players should return for this fixture and it will be interesting to see how they are playing after the massive failure by the German national team. This will be a test for Bayern Munich but they will be at home and the crowd at Allianz Arena should be big as they prepare to cheer their side before the start of the regular season.

All in all, I am going to go with Bayern Munich winning this match. The German champions are at home which means that they have an advantage. Bayern Munich have an amazing record at home and I think that will only improve in this match.

 

Pick:
Bayern Munich
