Bayern Munich vs Fenerbahce Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

FC Bayern Munich Form & Team News


Bayern Munich are the hosts of the Audi Cup and are three-time winners of the biennial tournament. The 2019 competition is just one of a number of pre-season tournaments for the Germans as they look to make a successful defence of their Bundesliga title.

Nico Kovac's men have a fine record in the Audi Cup, claiming four wins from their last six matches. This will be the last pre-season outing for the Bavarians before facing bitter rivals Dortmund in the German Super Cup.

New signing Lucas Hernandez is not expected to feature in the tournament with the French defender still recovering from a knee injury. First team regulars Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller are, however, likely to feature for the Germans.

Fenerbahce SK Form & Team News


Fenerbahce are coming off a disappointing 2018-19 campaign in the Turkish Super Lig having failed to put up a proper title challenge and ultimately finishing outside the European places.

The Turks are making their debut in the Audi Cup as they look to put last season’s disappointing campaign behind them. They have been one of the busiest teams in the transfer market having acquired several players including Max Kruse and Vedat Muriqi.

Fenerbahce are likely to give some of their new signings a run out against Bayern Munich with the likes of Max Kruse and Vedat Muriqi expected to feature. Regulars Victor Moses and Miha Zajc are also in contention to play.

Bayern Munich vs Fenerbahce Match Up


Bayern Munich boast one of the best forward lines in Europe and are often hard to defend against. With the likes of Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller, the Bavarians should have too much for their Turkish opponents.

Fenerbahçe are not as formidable in attack as Bayern and should find things difficult against the Germans. With Vedat Muriqi and Max Kruse still trying to build some understanding with their new team mates, the Turks are not expected to trouble the Bavarians.
