Bayern Munich Match Betting News

Bayern Munich easily claimed the league and cup double last season, and the appointment of Carlo Ancelotti to replace Pep Guardiola suggests that the club hierarchy are now looking to earn glory in the Champions League.

Bayern have invested heavily in the squad by securing star names such as Renato Sanches and Mats Hummels and on the evidence of their pre-season performances so far, the Bavarians will certainly have to be considered one of the favourites to win the elite European club competition during the upcoming campaign.

Following their fine 4-1 drubbing of Inter, Bayern now prepare to square off against Real Madrid on Thursday in the International Champions Cup and the match should prove to be a good test for Ancelotti’s men.

Real Madrid Match Betting News

Real Madrid claimed their 11th Champions League title triumph under legend Zinedine Zidane last season and Los Blancos will now be aiming to defend their crown as well as end Barcelona’s dominance in La Liga during the upcoming season.

A bit surprisingly, Real Madrid have been relatively quiet in the transfer market so far and their only big money signing has been of Alvaro Morata from Juventus.

Nonetheless, Madrid already possess a squad which requires very little strengthening and Zidane will be confident of another successful campaign with the same group of players.

The European Champions claimed a relatively comfortable 3-2 victory over Chelsea last weekend and now Zidane will be hopeful of his side putting in another good performance when they square off against Bayern Munich on Thursday.

It is very difficult to call the game at the moment but Bayern have looked the more impressive team among the two in pre-season so far and the Germans should be able to claim the victory on the night.
