Real Madrid will take on Bayern Munich in what should be a great pre-season friendly match. This part of the season is important for both sides as it is a time where the managers can test formations and young players so when the regular season begins, the team will be in great shape. Nevertheless, both teams will still give their all and I am expecting a pretty good game here.
Real Madrid will be missing their superstar, Cristiano Ronaldo, for the start of this season and a replacement for the Portugal International will be tough to find. With that in mind, some young players in the Real Madrid squad are playing a few good games and testing different formations is going well for Zidane. This game will be a test for all that I have mentioned since Bayern Munich may not be playing their best team, but the likes of Ribery will still be playing which should mean a test for the current Champion’s League winners.
Bayern Munich on the other hand will be excited to test the depth of their squad. This team has an amazing set up and even without the likes of Muller, Robben and Vidal, the team is looking very strong. I expect them to win Real Madrid here since the team they are playing is better than the one that I expect Real Madrid to play.
We are going to get a decent enough price to bet on the German champions to win and I am going to suggest a medium size bet since it is not amazing, but it is not a bad bet either. In addition to that bet, I am expecting a high scoring game as well since both teams are great going forward and with little on the line, I expect a free flowing and attacking contest.
