German titans Bayern Munich face Premier League champions Manchester City in the most hotly anticipated preseason game of the summer. Both clubs have been at the heart of the three most sensational transfer deals of the off-season, and just as Erling Haaland’s first appearances in a City shirt feel like the start of something truly spectacular, it’s going to be just as intriguing to see how Bayern line up with Sadio Mané up front in place of club legend Robert Lewandowski. Read on as we explain how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Man City live stream from anywhere in the world.
Haaland scored five goals in seven appearances against Munich during his time with Dortmund but never ended up on the winning side, and even in a friendly he’ll be desperate to get one over his old nemeses. Pep Guardiola is often reluctant to unleash his latest signings early on, but as one of the most exciting talents in the game, the towering Norwegian goal machine, who turned 22 on Thursday, demands to be played.

Bayern Munich squad and team news
It is expected that Nagelsmann will stick with his strongest XI as Bayern play their final friendly before the DFL-Supercup clash against RB Leipzig on July 30. The German appreciates City and knows it will be a tough test against Guardiola’s men.
“City have a good coach and a good sporting director. They have done a great job in recent years and are therefore currently one of the best teams in Europe,” Nagelsmann stated.
“I’ve been following Pep since his Barcelona days. Barcelona’s counter-pressing back then was the most impressive thing. When you’re a young coach, you make sure you watch almost every game and get new ideas from the best in the business.”
Summer signings Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt both got on the scoresheet on their debuts last time out and they should start on Sunday along with fellow summer recruits Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch.
