Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid
International- Champions Cup
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK / 02:00 CET
Venue: NRG Stadium (Houston).
Bayern got off to a losing start in the Cup and were handed a shock 2-1 defeat at the hands of Arsenal. Despite fielding a fairly strong line up with the likes of Mueller, Neuer, Tolisso and the lot, the team failed to clinically finish most of their attacks in that game.
The clash looked certain to finish in a draw, but they ultimately failed to keep out a late goal by Nketiah and succumbed to the loss.
Madrid had a disappointing end to last season’s campaign and suffered a blow with back to back defeats in their last two games. However, Zidane has been rebuilding his squad with quite a few signings and is now certainly sizing up to what could become a formidable team.
The clash between the two heavyweights is certainly one to watch out for, with the German outfit unlikely to be the ones to come out on top.

Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid Prediction
Los Blancos may not have been at their best in their previous season, but the way they’ve been approaching the transfer market certainly suggests that Zidane is meaning business this time.
Bayern failed to fulfill their defensive duties in their previous game and would have had an embarrassing defeat, had it not been for Lewandowski’s timely header.
We can certainly rule out the chances of a high scoring clash, with the Zizou’s men likely to edge it past their foes.
