Arsenal vs Bayern Munich 19th July 2017: ICC Preview and Predictions


The cup, awarded in the pre-season tournament, was won by the Gunners in their defeat of Bayern Munich on penalties.

Alex Iwobi came off the bench to score the equalizer with virtually the last kick of the game, as Arsenal held Bayern Munich to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday, in their first match at the International Champions.

And there is no stiffer competition to hope for than Bayern, the club who have enjoyed themselves against Arsenal quite often in the recent past, even if the Gunners are coming off two wins in Australia - against Sydney FC and Western Sydney Wanderers.

"Mertesacker and Giroud were sick, Kolasinac was sick".

The Bavarians thought they had doubled their lead after 20 minutes, but new signing Corentin Tolisso's goal was flagged offside.

The two teams met last in the UEFA Champions League when Bayern Munich thrashed Arsenal on an aggregate of 10-2 in the round of 16 in both the legs.

Andre Villas-Boas, then Tottenham Hotspur manager, threatened to pull his team out over fears of injury and his defender Jan Vertonghen suffered ankle damage that made him a major doubt for the start of the season.

Arsenal boss Wenger has admitted that he is a fan of Lemar.

The same patterned continued, though, with Rodriguez again finding space to shoot at goal and Cech stopping the shot.

At 27 years of age, Muller's list of achievements is certainly impressive on all of a personal, club and national team level.

Who is in Arsenal's squad?

Wenger was pleased with the work-out despite finishing the game with a back-five which included three midfielders and three inexperienced youngsters: Cohen Bramall, Reiss Nelson and Ainsley Maitland-Niles. "Not this one!" - The Mirror.

"We've still got a few weeks and many games to play but I think we are on a good way because you can see the players getting fitter and stronger". Arsenal had an unfamiliar backline and had to call upon Petr Cech several times, with the keeper making excellent saves.

"This is not the trophy we lift, guys", Cech could be heard telling them.
