German titans Bayern Munich face Premier League champions Manchester City in the most hotly anticipated preseason game of the summer. Both clubs have been at the heart of the three most sensational transfer deals of the off-season, and just as Erling Haaland's first appearances in a City shirt feel like the start of something truly spectacular, it's going to be just as intriguing to see how Bayern line up with Sadio Mané up front in place of club legend Robert Lewandowski. Read on as we explain how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Man City live stream from anywhere in the world.

Despite cruising to a 10th consecutive Bundesliga title in April, Bayern Munich isn't a happy club right now. Julian Nagelsmann and the players were jeered by their own supporters at the end of the season after a limp European campaign, and the club's treatment of Lewandowski has further tainted Bayern's image.

But the signing of Liverpool idol Mané represents the start of a new chapter. The Senegalese striker has scored 10 goals in 19 appearances against City, and Leroy Sané's reunion with his former teammates adds a further sense of intrigue to the occasion. Mané scored on his debut in midweek, as did fellow new recruit Matthijs de Ligt, a big money arrival from Juventus.

Haaland scored five goals in seven appearances against Munich during his time with Dortmund but never ended up on the winning side, and even in a friendly he'll be desperate to get one over his old nemeses. Pep Guardiola is often reluctant to unleash his latest signings early on, but as one of the most exciting talents in the game, the towering Norwegian goal machine, who turned 22 on Thursday, demands to be played.

The first soccer match to ever be staged at iconic NFL stadium Lambeau Field promises to be something special, so follow our guide as we explain how to watch a Bayern Munich vs Man City live stream wherever you are.
