Our football match prediction:
The National Stadium in Singapore will host Saturday’s football match between Chelsea and Bayern Munich. The Blues aim to prepare for the upcoming Premier League season in the best way possible and coach Antonio Conte, who has signed a new contract with the capital club, is likely to use July friendly games to test as many players as possible. The mighty Bavarians, on the other hand, were beaten by Chelsea’s local rivals Arsenal in the opening match of their International Champions Cup campaign and, no doubt, they are eager to give fans some cheer. Carlo Ancelotti’s men are likely to take this match very seriously and that is the main reason why we predict that Bundesliga champions will defeat Chelsea in Singapore. Robert Lewandowski, who scored in the defeat to Arsenal, is likely to lead the line for Bayern Munich against Antonio Conte’s charges.

The Stern des Sudens (Star of the South) are the dominant force in German football and it has to be noted that the Bavarians clinched their 26th Bundesliga title in 2016. Bayern Munich have won 18 German Cup trophies, while winning the Champions League (European Cup) five times.

Fellow Bavarian sides TSV 1860 Munchen 1860 and Nurnberg are regarded as Bayern Munich’s fiercest rivals, but the rivalry between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern is big as well. The likes of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Franz Beckenbauer, Lothar Matthaus, Oliver Kahn, Gerd Muller and Giovane Elber are famous footballers who played for Bayern Munich in the past.
