    Both teams have been busy in the transfer market with a number of incomings and outgoings as City and Bayern look to maintain their domestic dominance.

    Erling Haaland didn’t play a part in City’s first friendly against Club America, but fellow new boys Kalvin Phillips and Julian Alvarez featured for Pep Guardiola’s side.

    Meanwhile, Bayern have brought in the likes of Sadio Mane and Matthijs de Ligt as they look to launch an assault on the Champions League this year.

    However, Robert Lewandowski has departed, so it will be fascinating to see how both sides line up for this one.

    Manchester City v Bayern Munich: Team news

    Guardiola has confirmed that Haaland could be involved for the first time: “Next game he’ll be ready. He had niggles, we don’t want to take risks, maybe against Bayern, we will see.”

    Meanwhile, the Spaniard is likely to rotate his squad and hand out starts to Phillips and Ruben Dias.

    But John Stones, Phil Foden, Aymeric Laporte and Ilkay Gundogan are all absent.

    Laporte wasn’t deemed fit enough to make the trip, while the others missed out due to their vaccination status.

    Both De Ligt and Mane scored on their debuts for Bayern, so you can expect both to be involved here.

    But Leon Goretzka has been ruled out for the next eight weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

    Manchester City v Bayern Munich: What has been said?

    City gaffer Guardiola on his absent players: “I would like them to be here.

    “The second season here [2017/18], when we finished with 100 points, that was the only pre-season when we were all together from day one.

    “Since then it’s always four players arrive, then after a few weeks some other ones and we start the season with incredible problems. That’s why we drop every season at the beginning many, many points.”

    Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann on De Ligt and Mane: “Both players have made a good start.

    “Matthijs scored a brilliant goal with his left foot. I saw his impressive passing with his left foot in training today, and now this brilliant finish as well.”
