Manchester City was the team to give the most players for the World Cup in Russia so there is no way that Manchester City are going to be at full strength for the 1st matches of this friendly competition. This is a great opportunity for all the players in the squad to show their quality and receive some important time in the friendly matches plus the new signing Riyad Mahrez will be eager to get himself integrated into the system. Dortmund have named former Gladbach, Hertha Berlin and Nice boss Lucien Favre as their new coach for the next season. He should think fast and bring a quality striker after losing Aubameyang to Arsenal and Michy Batshuayi who went back to Chelsea. Not just that but they are about to lose one of their best players and rising star Christian Pulisic, who is a target for some of the top Premier League sides. This match has the potential to be a high scoring affair with both sides having a great depth and playing an open football. Best pick for the match: Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals in the match at 1.95 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&a=7af7edbc-c7ec-4f56-bafa-9208079a57d6&f=2">with Coral</a>.</p><p> </p><h2>Bayern Munich vs Paris Saint-Germain</h2><p>Bundesliga and Ligue 1 reigning champs kick off their preparations to defend their domestic titles on Saturday July 21st in Klagenfurt Austria. Bayern Munich have moved fast to name the retiring Jupp Heynckes' successor with former Eintracht Frankfurt's Niko Kovac bringing a hard-working and a winning mentality to the locker room. PSG also have a new coach in Thomas Tuchel who will be looking to revive his side with some strong summer games, bring his own working mentality with the most important goal being the Champions League trophy. The top players from both sides are on vacation after the World Cup. PSG will be without their star duo Neymar and Mbappe and that might represent a huge advantage for the Bavarian side. We expect an exciting encounter between 2 huge teams fully packed with quality and talented players. Best pick for the match: Bayern Munich to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at 2.2 <a href="https://a.bookmakersreview.com/record/v?c=132&a=bced0cf5-be5d-40a4-8446-02910689b2b5&f=2">with Paddy Power</a>.</p>
