German Bundesliga champions FC Bayern Munich are just four days out from playing their first meaningful game of the 2019-2020 season, a Der Klassiker matchup in the German Super Cup when they face arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund, per Soccerway. But the Reds get one more chance to tune up for the season in the 2019 Audi Cup invitational tournament, which they open with a semifinal match against 19-time Turkish champions Fenerbahçe SK on Tuesday. The winner returns on Wednesday to face last season’s English Premier League 4th-place finishers Tottenham Hotspur, who scored a 1-0 victory over Real Madrid in the first Audi Cup semi, earlier on Tuesday. Bayern will try to handle the Turkish side later the same night, in a match that will live stream from Allianz Arena.

Though the real purpose of the Audi Cup for Bayern is to get in shape for what will certainly be a grueling campaign to take their record eighth consecutive Bundesliga title, and to better their UEFA Champions League performance from last season that saw them last no further than the Round of 16, going out to eventual champions Liverpool, Bayern star Thomas Mueller says that winning the Audi Cup tournament is an important goal for his team, according to FCBayern.com.
“A victory, especially in front of our own fans in a full stadium, is of great importance,” the 29-year-old said, adding that the four-team competition is “the final acid test” before Bayern starts playing games that matter this coming weekend.
Bayern opened the preseason with a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal, but rebounded by beating Real Madrid and AC Milan heading into Tuesday’s match.
