Red Bull Salzburg are meeting Bayer Munich in a friendly match this weekend at a sold out Redbull Arena in Salzburg.
The match on Saturday is the third meeting between the two teams, although both previous friendly games have seen no goals scored from either side. The clubs have never met previously in a competitive match, which is set to continue in this season after Red Bull Salzburg got knocked out of the Championship League by Fenerbahce.
However, both teams have been putting on strong performances recently, with the Austrian side seeing six wins in the group stage of the Europa League, impressively completing the stage without dropping a point. Before they lost to Manchester City, Bayern had equally put on a good league performance, winning their first five group stage matches in the Championship League.
Having both ended the last season on a high, the teams are fairly evenly matched ahead of the game tomorrow - although, widely considered as one of the best teams in the world, Bayern may just have the edge over Red Bull Salzburg.
The match is one of three to already sell out the Red Bull Arena this season - the recent match against Fenerbahce and one coming up against Dutch side Ajax Amsterdam have also sold out.
