German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich invade Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois, on Wednesday, in a match that will stream live against struggling Italian side AC Milan, once one of Europe’s premier clubs, but one which has fallen on hard times lately, as the preseason International Champions Cup tournament continues.
Scroll down this page for a live stream video of the Bayern Munich vs. AC Milan International Champions Cup showdown.
While Milan placed only seventh on the Serie A table in the 2015-2016 season, they hope to show progress toward rebuilding their former greatness in the upcoming campaign. AC Milan have won the Italian championship 18 times since 1901 — but not since the 2010-2011 season.

They’ve also won seven European Championships, including three UEFA Champions League trophies since 1994 — but none since 2007.
Bayern, on the other hand, has won four consecutive German Bundesliga titles and appear poised for a fifth, even after a managerial switch, with Per Guardiola heading to England where he now helms Manchester City, and former AC Milan boss Carlo Ancelotti taking the reins in Munich.
Ancelotti and Guardiola squared off last week in a preseason friendly match on July 20, with Bayern Munich getting the better of Manchester City, 1-0.

Ancelotti — who has managed many of the world’s top clubs including Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain before taking ver Bayern Munich — spoke favorably of the American, in an interview with The Chicago Tribune on Tuesday.
“He’s doing well,” the manager said. “He worked really hard in the games and we’re going to see what he can do. … He needs to continue to improve and I think he’ll be important for us.”
