Manchester City will feature in their second pre-season friendly this summer as they face Bayern Munich this weekend.

The Premier League champions played out a comfortable 2-1 win over Club America earlier this week as they sported their smart new away kit, with Kevin De Bruyne bagging a brace at the NRG Stadium in Houston.

Their clash with the German club will be a much tougher test but all eyes will be on the new players, with Erling Haaland potentially set to make his debut.

The striker wasn’t fully fit to face Club America but could be in line to face Bayern, who he will be all too familiar with from his time at Borussia Dortmund.

Here is everything you need to know about this weekend’s fixture...

When is Bayern Munich v Man City?

Bayern Munich vs Manchester City is due to take place on Sunday 24th July 2022.

The fixture is set to be played at Lambeau Field in Wisconsin, US - the home of the Green Bay Packers of the NFL - and will be the first-ever football match played in the stadium.

The venue has a total capacity of 81,441.

What time is kick-off?

The match is set to kick off at 6pm (local time) in the US, which will be midnight in the UK due to the six-hour time difference between Manchester and Green Bay.

This means UK fans will have to stay up in the early hours of the morning to catch a glipse of Haaland & co in action.

Team news

Man City have no reported injuries ahead of this weekend’s match.

However, they remain without Phil Foden, John Stones and Ilkay Gundogan during their time in the United States after they were unable to travel because they didn’t meet US entry requirements, while Aymeric Laporte was sidelined and wasn’t able to make the trip.

Pep Guardiola has confirmed that Haaland will play in the friendly against Bayern Munich after missing out earlier this week.

The Spaniard said his new signing had had ‘niggles and a few problems’ but will be fit in time for Sunday.

Leroy Sane could face his former team if he is to feature for Bayern Munich, while Sadio Mane is likely to line up against his old rivals.


Manchester City last played Bayern Munich in the International Champions Cup in July 2018.

Played at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, City came out victorious in a dramatic 3-2 win.

Despite Bayern taking a 2-0 lead inside half an hour thanks to goals from Meritan Shabani and Arjen Robben, Bernardo Silva set City up for a comeback with a goal right before half-time.

Lukas Nmecha quickly equalised shortly after the break, before Silva claimed his brace with a second half winner.

The last time the two sides met in a competitive match was in the Champions League in 2014, when City once again beat the German club 3-2.

However, they are pretty even in their competitive meetings, with both sides winning three each.
