Arsenal vs. Bayern Munich - Football Match Report

Bayern must spend big to stay competitive

Arsenal — Bayern Munich: where to watch match of the International Champions Cup

It was Arsenal who opened the scoring just four minutes into the second-half though, when Henrikh Mkhitaryan found Aubameyang in space inside the penalty area, with his cross deflecting into the net off Louis Poznanski. Unai Emery later brought in more youngsters including Reiss Nelson, Bukayo Saka and Tyreece John-Jules.

With Arsenal stuttering in the transfer market this summer, Emery was encouraged by the performance of his young players.

In truth, the game could have gone either way as both teams had chances but Arsenal's late substitutes made a big difference to give them extra energy as Bayern exhausted.

Arsenal return to pre-season action on Saturday when they play Serie A side Fiorentina. For example the one-to-one Nketiah against Sule [was encouraging]. "Things have already been done, but we need more". "You also can see it in the number of youth players who are accompanying us on the U.S. tour", he told Sport1.

"Our responsibility in this club for the history, present and future is to give young players chance". The competition itself brings together some of the biggest clubs in the world to put a twist on a regular pre-season. Meanwhile, new signings from either side are likely to get a run-out as well as they look to gel with the squad.

"We want to win every match, this is not the most important but really we can see important things for us, for our ideas".
