Bayern Munich will begin their pre-season with a friendly against DC United at Audi Field on Wednesday night. The hosts are in the middle of their Major League Soccer (MLS) campaign, and are heading into the match on the back of a 2-0 defeat at Minnesota United last Saturday. The defeat left the Black-and-Red languishing at the bottom of the Eastern Conference table with just 18 points from 19 games. Meanwhile Bayern had won the 2021-22 Bundesliga title, pocketing 77 points from 34 games, eight points more than second placed Borussia Dortmund. 

DC United suffered their 11th defeat of the season last weekend, courtesy of a brace by Emanuel Reynoso. Although the Black-and-Red are sitting at the 14-th place, they have two matches in hand over Toronto and Chicago Fire, who are one and five points clear of the basement outfit respectively. Chad Ashton is the interim boss of the team, until new boss Wayne Rooney takes charge.The MLS outfit has conceded 17 goals in their last five league games, and havent won a league game since last May. After the Bayern game, DC will resume their MLS season at home against Montreal. 

Bayern, on the other hand, after the DC game, will take on Manchester City in a much anticipated friendly on July 24 before facing RB Leipzig in the DFB- Supercup final, and then will begin their Bundesliga title defence away to Eintracht Frankfurt on August 6. Meanwhile Bayern will be without their second-highest goal-scorer of all time, Robert Lewandowski, as the 33-year-old left the Bavarians to join Barcelona this summer. However, Julian Nagelsmann’s side have made some impressive signings in all departments to bolster the squad. Noussair Mazraoui, Ryan Gravenberch, Sadio Mane and Matthijs De Ligt will don the Bavarian shade for the 2022-23 season.
