Manchester City vs Bayern Munich live: Erling Haaland set to make debut against European giants as Sadio Mane prepares to face old foes – UK kick-off time, team news and how to follow


Manchester City take on Bayern Munich at Lambeau Field in America as both teams prepare for the new season.

That tie may well come in the Champions League in the 2022/23 campaign, but first they will meet in a friendly.

Both sides have been busy in the transfer market with a number of ins and outs as City and Bayern look to maintain their domestic dominance.

Erling Haaland didn’t play a role in City’s first friendly against Club America, but other new boys Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez played for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Meanwhile, Bayern have brought in Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt as they look to launch a Champions League assault this year.

However, Robert Lewandowski is gone so it will be fascinating to see how the two sides line up for this one.

Manchester City vs Bayern Munich: Team News

Guardiola confirmed that Haaland could be involved for the first time: “In the next game he will be ready. He had problems, we don’t want to take any risks, maybe against Bayern, we’ll see.

Meanwhile, the Spaniard is likely to rotate his squad and hand out starts to Phillips and Ruben Dias.

But John Stones, Phil Foden, Aymeric Laporte and Ilkay Gundogan are all absent.

Laporte was deemed not fit enough to make the trip, while the others missed out due to their vaccination status.

De Ligt and Mane both scored on their debuts for Bayern, so you can expect both to be involved here.

But Leon Goretzka has been ruled out for the next eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Manchester City vs Bayern Munich: what was said?

City gaffer Guardiola on his absent players: “I wish they were here.

“The second season here [2017/18]when we finished with 100 points, it was the only pre-season where we were all together from day one.

“Since then, four players have always arrived, then after a few weeks others and we start the season with incredible problems. That’s why we lose lots and lots of points every season at the start.

Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann on De Ligt and Mane: “Both players are off to a good start.

“Matthijs scored a brilliant goal with his left foot. I saw his impressive passing with his left foot in training today, and now that brilliant finish too.
