International Champions Cup 2017 Singapore: Arsenal vs Bayern MunichPublished July 19, 2017 by Sol FH
These two heavyweights go toe-to-toe today at 12:20 GMT, at the International Champions Cup in Singapore.
No, it's not yet time for the Champions League, but it will be the first match between Arsenal and Bayern since their Champions League Round of 16 clash. If you remember, Bayern won both the home and away match of that duel 5-1 and 1-5 respectively. Arsenal looked simply pathetic in the Round of 16, but they hope to turn things around today in Singapore as the 2017 International Champions Cup gets underway.
The Gunners have made quite a few changes so far over the summer, including taking star striker, Alexandre Lacazette from Lyon. They set a club record by signing Lacazetteand were also able to secure Sead Kolasinac to strengthen their left side. There are quite a few players that will not play for the Gunners today, as Alexis Sanchez, Rob Holding, Calum Chambers, Shkodran Mustafi and Hector Bellerin are all recuperating after a tough international schedule. They also have 3 players injured in Jack Wilshere, Kieran Gibbs and Lucas Perez.
Bayern has also been busy and also took a player from Lyon in Corentin Tolisso, the dynamic midfielder. They also went for La Liga winners' Real Madrid, as they added James Rodriguez on a two-year loan from Los Blancos. It is not like Bayern will be at 100%, as Manuel Neuer, Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng are all hurt. Many of their players are still resting after a brutal Confederations Cup schedule will see Arturo Vidal, Joshua Kimmich, Sebastian Rudy and Niklas Sule all miss-out on the action.
