Liverpool and Bayern Munich meet at the Singapore National Stadium this afternoon for a heavyweight friendly at 12.30pm (UK time).
Liverpool vs Bayern Munich odds
From a scoring perspective, Liverpool have been utterly ruthless this pre-season so far. Jurgen Klopp’s men have fired 12 goals in just three outings, with Darwin Nunez — who recently inherited the No. 9 shirt — bagging four times in that run. There will be a slight concern that the Reds shipped six goals to Karlsruher SC (winning 4-2) and Greuther Furth (drawing 4-4) combined, but rotation is the name of the game in pre-season, and that often means random scorelines.
Bayern Munich have had a bit of a weird summer themselves. Thomas Tuchel’s men were utterly rampant when they smashed 27 past German minnows Rottach-Egern without response, before losing to European champions Manchester City in Tokyo last week — and then ultimately responding with a 1-0 win over Japanese club Kawasaki Frontale on Friday. There’s an element of uncertainty for both clubs, which should set this tie up nicely in Kallang later this week.

Liverpool vs Bayern Munich ‘correct score’ tip
With less jeopardy in friendlies, unusual and big scorelines are often the norm. Managers prefer to shuffle the pack and use the full range of their squads in pre-season, which can often lead to very open games on the turf, a notion reinforced by the two clubs’ respective pre-season results so far, notably Liverpool’s 4-4 draw with Greuther Furth. Expect a similarly-chaotic but fiercely-competitive affair on Wednesday.
Liverpool vs Bayern Munich Bet-Builder tip
With Klopp still trying to bed in and establish his new midfield following the departures of James Milner and Jordan Henderson, not to mention Fabinho’s imminent exit, as well as the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai, Liverpool are anything but a settled side. Bayern, likewise, have their own squad issues, which could really see this game open up and be thoroughly entertaining for the neutral. Goals are expected given the respective frontlines, but there isn’t much to separate the two sides.
Liverpool team news
Szoboszlai returned to the side last week after a spell on the treatment tables with an ankle injury, contributing towards the 4-0 demolition of Leicester City in Singapore. However, the likes of Stefan Bajcetic and Thiago Alcantara remain sidelined, while Fabinho is absent as he edges closer to his move to Al-Ittihad.
Bayern Munich team news
Sadio Mane misses out on a reunion with his former club as the Senegalese forward nears a transfer to Al Nassr. Mane’s departure troubles an attack already missing Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Thomas Muller, while Tuchel is also without Manuel Neuer and summer signing Raphael Guerreiro.
