Bayern Munich vs Manchester City: Live stream, game time thread, how to watch

Kickoff: We’re underway in Lambeau Field! Can Bayern Munich beat Manchester City in preseason?


Update #2: The game should kick off soon! Not much longer to wait now. We got pretty lucky there.


Update: Game delayed due to thunderstorms at the ground. Looks like Pep Guardiola and Julian Nagelsmann will have to wait a little while to match wits against each other. We’ll update you when Bayern Munich kick off against Manchester City.


One hour until kickoff: We have lineups! Julian Nagelsmann chooses to start a very strong lineup consisting of most of his main starters. Thomas Muller, Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sane, and Kingsley Coman start up top for Bayern Munich, while the midfield is covered by Joshua Kimmich and Marcel Sabitzer. Benjamin Pavard and Alphonso Davies flank the center backs, where Matthijs de Ligt is curiously absent. In fact, all the new signings are missing today.

Looks like Nags wants his veterans playing the first half, at least.


It only just started but preseason is already ramping down, but not without at least one more big game on the calendar. Bayern Munich take on Manchester City at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin in a game that should give us a good idea of how both teams are developing for the upcoming season.

Given that both Bayern and City play their respective domestic supercup games in a week’s time, both teams should be at around the same level of preparation. However Julian Nagelsmann will miss key players like Leon Goretzka (injury) and Sadio Mane (in Germany) for the game, while Pep Guardiola will be looking to debut his shiny new signing in Erling Haaland.

Heading into the game, most people have the following questions:

  • Can Bayern Munich score without Robert Lewandowski?
  • Can Bayern’s midfield hold its own against Man City’s press?
  • Can Bayern’s defense keep a clean sheet? (Probably not)

As for the answers — we’ll just have to watch and find out.
