City beat Club America in their one and only pre-season friendly so far, with Kevin de Bruyne scoring both goals in their 2-1 win.
Guardiola warned City against their tough opponents this evening. Speaking to the clubs’ website, he said:
"Julian Nagelsmann is a really, really young manager but with enough experience at RB Leipzig and he is at Bayern, where demands are high.
"He did really well last season winning the Bundesliga, and the standards at Bayern Munich are so, so high. You have to do more, and more next season.
"Bayern is always a strong team. Not just the titles, (but) the quality of their play. They will find solutions.
"The heart of the team is still there – Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich.
"Sadio Mane is an exceptional player in all senses. De Ligt is a young player, but (they are) two really good signings. That’s normal."
The league winners in Germany have played just once this pre-season also, defeating DC United 6-2.
Mane, Marcel Sabitzer, Serge Gnabry, de Ligt, Joshua Zirkzee and Thomas Muller all scored, which may be an ominous sign for the Citizens on the east coast.
The two champions take each other on at 00:00 GMT this evening, meaning it will be on the 24th July for UK viewers.
The game will not be shown on traditional TV, but can be streamed live via City+ or Recast, which can be purchased via Manchester City’s website.
Neither side head into the game with many injuries, with City looking like they have a clean bill of health at the time of writing - except of course those left behind from the trip.
Leroy Sane could face his former employers for the first time since departing in 2019, whilst de Ligt is expected to be fit despite hobbling off against DC.
