Our prediction for this match:
All eyes will be on Allianz Arena when Bayern Munchen and Manchester United face each other in a friendly game. The mighty Bavarians failed to impress at the 2018 International Champions Cup, with the team losing to Juventus and Man City, while beating PSG, who were without several first-team regulars. Niko Kovac’s men aim to give fans some cheer and we predict that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s football match. Robert Lewandowski should be recalled to the starting line-up and we believe that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Red Devils have yet to recover from a heavy 4-1 loss to their bitter rivals Liverpool, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on the Bundesliga champions. When the two teams met in the Champions League four years ago Bayern Munchen recorded a 3-1 win over Man Utd.
Highlighted Player (Sebastian Rudy):
After spending his youth career at the likes of Dietingen, Zimmern and Stuttgart, Sebastian Rudy started playing for Stuttgart II at senior level. The right back, who is capable of playing as a midfielder as well, made 37 league appearances for the Stuttgart reserve team, scoring 12 goals in the process.
After making 15 appearances for the first team, he joined Hoffenheim in 2010 and he has been playing for the Bundesliga team ever since. Sebastian Rudy is very quick on the ball and he is able to deliver a decent cross. Rudy scored two goals in 24 league appearances for Hoffenheim in the 2015/2016 Bundesliga campaign.
Speaking of his international career, Rudy made his Germany debut on 13 May, 2014 in a friendly match against Poland in Hamburg. However, he did not make Germany Euro 2016 squad. Rudy has a contract with Hoffenheim which expires on 30 June, 2017.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
