Bayern Munich, Real Madrid in final of Audi Cup

Even with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema sidelined with accidents, Los Blancos turned in a stellar efficiency towards an overmatched Tottenham aspect with a 2-Zero victory Tuesday in Germany.


New-signing Costa was proving his quality as he forced a decent save from Lopez only to push his effort from the rebound just over the crossbar. Bayern Munich’s new arrival Douglas Costa approached the goal with a unsafe free kick at the ninth minute.

Bayern Munich ended their preseason campaign on a high note on Wednesday as they beat Real Madrid 1-0 to claim the Audi Cup.

“I am learning a lot and I think we must keep on working because we want to do well and achieve a lot of good things this season“.

All five Wolfsburg players scored from the spot, while goalkeeper Koen Casteels made an acrobatic save with his left foot to deny Bayern’s Xabi Alonso.

Milan defender Rodrigo Ely admits they’re targeting the top three, and discussed the Bayern Munich defeat.

The two top-rated European clubs will be pitched against each other for the first time Real Madrid knocked Bayern out of Champions League with a 4-0 second leg victory in the 2014 semifinals.

Pep Guardiola handed starts to a number of off-season signings which included Arturo Vidal from Juventus, Douglas Costa (Shakhtar Donetsk), Joshua Kimmich (RB Leipzig) and Sven Ulreich (VfB Stuttgart).

Ahead of Bayern Munich’s Audi Cup final against Real Madrid, Guardiola has stated that Madrid matches are not special to him. “Now we will get ready for the German Cup (first round this week)”.

Again getting in behind down the left, this time the 24-year-old supplied a tantalizing pass across the six-yard box that Robert Lewandowski looked certain to convert in the middle only to somehow side-foot wide of the gaping target.


Expect Keylor Navas to continue in goal for Real despite persistent rumors that his place in the side may be given over to David de Gea of Manchester United.
