Kick-Off (GMT): Wed 19 July 12:30
Arsenal take on Bayern Munich in China on Wednesday, hoping not to repeat the previous two matches played this year. 5-1 to the German champions was the scoreline in each of the last two matches and Arsene Wenger will be hoping there isn’t a repeat.
Bayern are the 4/6 favourites for the clash after winning their only pre-season match thus far 9-1 against Erlangen-Bruck. You’ll get Arsenal at 3/1 with huge 25/1 odds on a goal anytime for new Coral customers here.
Team News and Predicted Lineup
Arsenal travelled to China with the same squad as the Australian tour so we can expect little in the way of changes. With Bayern Munich providing a step up in quality compared to the Australian sides, expect Arsene Wenger to name a slightly more competitive side.
Bayern are also missing a couple of players but expect the likes of Robert Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara and Arjen Robben as well as new signing Corentin Tolisso.
