Bayern to face Marseille in friendly before Chelsea second leg

On July 31, Bayern Munich must prepare for the final stages of the Champions League by hosting Marseille in a friendly.

After their post-shutdown romp to the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal titles, Bayern is looking to complete a spectacular treble.

When they lead Chelsea 3-0 into the home leg of their last-16 tie, the German champions are well positioned to reach the final eight-team mini-tournament in Lisbon.

But since the Pokal final against Bayer Leverkusen on July 4, Bayern hasn’t played and so arranged an exhibition match at the FC Bayern Campus against Marseille.

Then, on 8 August, they face Chelsea.

According to Head coach Hansi Flick said: “The ‘Audi Football Summit’ against Olympique Marseille comes at an optimal time in our preparations for the second leg of the Champions League round of 16 against Chelsea.

“The team and our coaching staff will be working with great focus and high quality to make sure we pick up where we left off with our performances in the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal final in this game.”
