Arsenal vs Bayern Munich 19th July 2017: ICC Preview and Predictions
19 July 2017/0720ET
Preseason is underway for the German champions as the might of Bayern Munich try to cope with the loss of their captain and star right back, Philip Lahm. Their game will be against a rebuilding Arsenal team and historically Bayern Munich have done really well against the North London side so it will be interesting to see how this game spans out.
Arsenal have made one big signing and that is of the key striker from Lyon, Lacazette. The Frenchman is a terrific player and these preseason games will be a great chance for him to establish himself among the team. It is still unclear whether Alexis Sanchez or Ozil will remain at the Emirates next season but as it currently stand this trio could do good things for the Gunners.
Bayern Munich on the other hand are looking at signing Alexis Sanchez but that has not come through yet. Nevertheless, James Rodriguez has joined the German team and the former Real Madrid superstar is set to sell a lot of shirts in Munich and this might be the first chance we get to have a look at this terrific midfielder in action. Other than that, Bayern seems quite set with a strong midfield and a great defense so things are looking good.
All in all I think that Bayern Munich will win quite easily here like they have done so many times in the past against Arsenal. We are not getting a great price on this bet but nevertheless it seems like a banker bet so we should probably make it.
