It’s the battle of the Champions as Bundesliga winners Bayern Munich take on EPL title-holders Manchester City this Sunday in an encounter which promises to be an attacking masterpiece right from the get go.
The Citizens had found the back of the net an astonishing 99 times through their league campaign the last season and despite immense pressure from arch-rivals Liverpool, they managed to win the title on the final match-day of the season.

All through the campaign they were defeated just 3 times and in the process, they had let in a total of just 26 goals. It also deserves to be mentioned that in a season where they had +73 goal difference, their arch rivals Manchester United had a goal difference of exactly zero.
Meanwhile Bayern won the German title for the 10th straight time and during the course of this stretch they had found the back of the net an impressive 97 times from their 34 fixtures.
This will be the time for experiments for them as they play without star striker Robert Lewandowski for the first time in 9 years. However, they have made some good replacements in the form of Sadio Mane and against Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, it promises to be an exciting affair.
Moreover, goals have also come in plenty whenever these 2 teams have locked horns in the past.
Likely, anticipate a high-scoring affair this Sunday.
