Top 5 club friendlies to watch this summer
#4 Bayern Munich vs AC Milan (23rd July)
The Rossoneris will have fond memories of playing Bayern in the ICC, having stunningly plonked upon the German champions with four unanswered goals from Franck Kessie, Patrick Cutrone and Hakan Calhanoglu.
Two years later, their paths cross again but the Longgang setting of China is traded for that of Kansas City in the US.
In a competitive game though, the outcome would have surely been different and a repeat of the 2017 result is also unlikely. But this tie remains an intriguing prospect nonetheless, as the sides haven't met in an official match since 2007 when Milan beat Bayern 4-2 on aggregate in the last 8 en route to lifting the Champions League.
Another topsy-turvy campaign meant Milan's wait to play in the holy grail prolonged by another year, although the embarrassing FFP sanctions have also put an embargo in their Europa League participation for the 2019/20 season.
So perhaps, the Milanistas will have to contend with these games for now.
