Place: Austria. Klagenfurt. Wörthersee Stadion.
Date: on the 21st of July, 2018 (Saturday)
Match start: 15:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: International Champions Cup.
Bayern Munich (the head coach Niko Kovač)
Unlike the majority of other European grandees which are going to the USA the new meeting of the defending champions of Germany and France will take place in the Austrian city Klagenfurt. And at once after this game Bayern will face a long flight through Atlantic to Philadelphia (State of Pennsylvania) where the match between the grandee from Munich with the champion of Italy Juventus will take place on the 25th of July.
We will remind you that according to the results of last season the hosts of Allianz Arena for the 6th time in a row have won a national champion title and James Rodríguez (mean mark 7.63), Robert Lewandowski (7.49) and Arturo Vidal (7.49) became the best team players of Josef Heynckes.
However… Traditional champion victories of a record master in Bundesliga seem to be a habitual fact and therefore are considered to be everyday regularity. And at the same time the most important purpose of the Munich grandee for 5 years in a row is the Cup of the European champions. However, here Bayern traditionally has problems at different stages of the playoffs represented by the Spanish super clubs – Real (2014, 2017, 2018), Barcelona (2015) and Atlético (2016).
PSG (the head coach Thomas Tuchel)
Today new champions of Germany and France are united by one important factor! The teams of Unai Emery and Josef Heynckes have serially and disgracefully lost in the last tournament of Club championship of Europe to Real. And therefore absolutely predictably Allianz Arena and Parc des Princes have experienced certain switching jobs. Neymar (8.95), Edinson Cavani (7.69) and Kylian Mbappe (7.54) became the best players of PSG last season.
But, if now Bayern traditionally spends very economical transfer policy, then the Qatar leaders of the Paris Club is preparing another “transfer explosion” which will beat a last year’s record of Neymar (€222 million).
Now, according to the president of PSG Nasser bin Ghanim Al-Khelaïfi , the Brazilian link Neymar – Coutinho has to make the basis of the champion of France in the attack. And therefore for the Brazilian playmaker of Barcelona the Qatar magnate is ready to pay €300 million.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match Bayern vs PSG
It is unlikely that initially the superstar squad of the new team of Thomas Tuchel is stronger than the club from Munich. But, nevertheless, bookmakers give preference in the forthcoming match of two national grandees to the champion of Germany: Bayern – 2.35, PSG – 2.90.
Kylian Mbappe became the new world champion as a player of the stating lineup of PSG. Of course, we won’t see the young genius in the forthcoming match as well as Neymar. For this reason Bayern which has more superstars is a favorite of the forthcoming match. Though as we have already noted, the final result of exhibition matches has no basic value.
