Bayern Munich and Inter Milan meet in Shangai on Tuesday morning with both teams looking to continue their pre season preparations. Pep Guardiola's side were terrific on Saturday when they destroyed Valencia 4-1. Thomas Muller scored a couple and Bayern were experimenting with a 3-6-1 formation, the addition of Douglas Costa to the team will be an interesting one to see how he fits in the side. Robben and Goetze did not even get a run out on Saturday and that just goes to show how deep this Bayern squad is. Guardiola had a similar problem with Barcelona where he was trying to fit more midfielders in the team. Bayern play a terrific brand of passing football and this will be a better test than Valencia as Inter Milan look to have strengthened this season and have some really good attacking players.
Roberto Mancini kept hold of Icardi this off season which was the most important thing for rebuilding this Inter Milan team the addition of Kondogbia to the midfield is a big plus for inter and this pre season Palacio and Hernanes seem to be back playing at a really high level. Inter have improved and their off season thus far has seen them score eight goals in two games. On Tuesday they do face a much better level of competition against possibly the best team in Europe but it will be interesting to see how Mancini's side do.
The Odds here seem to be over estimating how good Inter Milan are. Bayern were 3/4 to beat Valencia and are 4/6 to win here, I think this is just too big. Bayern are one of the top four teams in Europe and even with their off season additions Inter are not in that bracket. Friendlies are always tougher to call, there will be lots of subsitutions and players will probably only get half a game but even with those nuances I think Bayern to win is a really good value bet here. Ther overs are also value but Bayern to win looks like another gimme in this pre season.
