Match Preview

Thiago Alcantara Bayern Munich 2017-18

It has been an exhilarating summer so far for Juventus, before even a single ball has been kicked.

The Serie A side pulled off a transfer coup in bringing Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo to Turin, and the striker is bound to be a top attraction at the club this season. 

But with Ronaldo and potential strike partner Dybala both at home resting for the ICC as well as a host of other World Cup participants, Juve's fringe players will also get a chance to shine. 

Bayern, meanwhile, impressed after coming back from a goal down to dispatch PSG in their tournament opener. 

A stunning free-kick from Renato Sanches in particular caught the eye, with the Portuguese playmaker keen to show the club he can stay and fight for a starting place in 2018-19. 

Another strong performance against the Serie A champions would further aid his cause, as a side shorn of the likes of Manuel Neuer, Thomas Muller and Robert Lewandowski looks for silverware in this prestigious curtain-raiser.
