Fans have been turning out in their droves to catch a glimpse of the 23-time Bundesliga champions in action, with Pep Guardiola's men already beginning to work up a sweat in preparation for Wednesday evening's must-see clash with the Major League Soccer (MLS) All-Stars at Portland's Providence Park (kick-off 18:30 local time). Holger Badstuber a particular highlight for the former Borussia Dortmund stalwart... Franck Ribery...
Returning starsMessrs Badstuber and Ribery can be expected to play leading roles when the club bring the curtain down on their Audi Summer Tour in Wednesday's All-Star clash - a game which is also set to feature 2014 FIFA World Cup winners Manuel Neuer, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mario Götze and Thomas Müller. "We'll have even more quality once the rest of the internationals return," Badstuber warned. "We didn't have much time in New York for training, but it's definitely the priority now. We have superb conditions here and can train in the morning and afternoon. Sessions like today’s are great."
