Commentary

Minute   Description
That is it for both sides in Europe; they play their remaining ICC games on the other side of the world. Bayern travel to the USA for their two fixtures, facing off firstly against Juventus at Pennsylvania's Lincoln Financial Field, home of Super Bowl holders Philadelphia Eagles before tangling with English champions Manchester City at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens. As for PSG, they travel to Singapore, where they play both times at Kallang's National Stadium; firstly against Arsenal and then against Atletico Madrid. Until then however, thank you for joining us - and have a great weekend!
In the end, Bayern's experience proved to be too much for the youth of PSG; though the latter gave it their best shot. Second-half goals for Javi Martinez, Renato Sanches and Joshua Zirkee helped Niko Kovac's side blow away an inexperienced team that Thomas Tuchel can still draw pride from - but it will be the Germans who get their ICC campaign underway with a win. Full-time in Austria, it finishes Bayern Munich 3-1 Paris Saint-Germain.
90'+3 FULL-TIME: BAYERN MUNICH 3-1 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
90' Three added minutes on the way.
88' Zagre mops up a Bayern attack that falls apart near the edge of the PSG box and plays it back to his keeper. Time is almost up...
86' Bayern look to sprinkle some further gloss on their second-half showing with a fourth goal but Gnabry's cross only goes to Deschamps in the middle of his box.
84' Alec Georgen replaces Dagba in the latest change of the game for PSG.
Substitution Azzeddine Toufiqui Alexandre Fressange
83' Weah slips a long ball down the right looking for Postolachi, but Meier cuts across to push it out for a throw-in. Better counter-attacking football from PSG.
82' There are plenty of positives for Thomas Tuchel to take from his young side's showing today, with many of his first-choice superstars still recovering from the World Cup; the future looks bright for PSG with the array of talent they have on show.
80' 10 minutes left and PSG look bereft of ideas. If they can find two more goals and haul this back to a draw, then the game will go straight to penalties under ICC rules. It'll be a big task for them though, with time running out...
78' Gnabry's delivery into the box was rather spectacular, a lovely, well-weighted pass that caught the slow PSG defence lagging well behind. Clever football from Bayern.
ZIRKZEE MAKES IT THREE FOR BAYERN! That should be the game as a Gnabry cross in for the substitute to tuck in with a half-volley from six yards out makes it a two-goal game. 3-1 to Bayern, having come from a goal down against PSG.
76' Gnabry and Richards combine down the right wing to put PSG under pressure, but despite Coman cutting in, Bayern are unable to make this chance stick.
74' Shabani with the half-volley! It takes a wicked deflection off his own man and spirals over the crossbar but that was a fantastic strike from the Bayern substitute.
72' ...and Diarra makes way for Arthur Zagre.
...Nkunku is replaced by Virgiliu Postolachi...
A trio of swaps for PSG now too; Rabiot makes way for Jese Rodriguez...
71' Ryan Johansson now arrives for Rafinha too as the changes come thick and fast.
70' It's the last act for Sanches too; he is replaced now by Marcel Zylla for Bayern. What a horrible start for Deschamps in goal.
68' WHAT A SCREAMER FROM RENATO SANCHES! Bayern lead 2-1! PSG are stunned by a fabulous free-kick, taken from the very edge of the right corner of their penalty area. Sanches steps up, and curls it beautifully over the wall; Deschamps, diving to stop it, can only assist in steering it into his own net. Two goals in eight minutes has changed the complexion of this match completely.
66' Indeed, PSG do make their first change now; albeit not an outfield one. It's Remy Descamps instead, who replaces Buffon - who departs to a standing ovation.
64' How PSG's young side - yet to make a change themselves - respond will be the big question now. Can they stem Bayern's attack? Or will that spate of changes slow their opposition instead?
62' ...and Jonathan Meier takes up the mantle vacated by Robben.
...goalscorer Martinez is deputised by Chris Richards...
...Bernat makes way for Serge Gnabry...
And with that goal, Bayern make a cavalcade of changes too. Joshua Zirkzee comes on for Wagner...
60' Robben's corners in this second half have so far usually found Wagner at the far post; this time, he delivered it more centrally to find Martinez instead. Well-played by the Dutchman.
BAYERN EQUALISE THROUGH MARTINEZ! 1-1! The pressure finally tells for PSG as they concede from another corner, with the defender the man to direct home Robben's set-piece. The scores are all square in Austria with an hour played.
58' Rafinha tries his luck from distance on the right, popping off a shot from 22 yards - but it leaves Buffon with nothing to worry about, bobbling wide at the left post.
57' Bayern win themselves another corner but Robben scuffs the set-piece and it trickles only to the edge of the box where Mbe Soh can clear for PSG.
55' Nkunku again! From nine yards out, in front of goal, the PSG man makes a clumsy first touch and blasts the shot over the crossbar. Both sides picking out chances in rapid succession.
53' The tempo has increased in the second half, courtesy of Bayern; Wagner pushes another header straight to Buffon on the back of a speedy attack through the middle of a loose PSG defence.
52' Coman and Wagner both see chances now blocked down the other end, the second by a hurried Rimane clearance after Ulreich came off his line to stop the first.
51' Nkunku! What a glorious chance for PSG as Rabiot plays his team-mate in on the right edge of the box - and sees the ball duly speared wide under no pressure from 10 yards out. What a miss that could be.
49' Wagner has a second header in as many minutes, this time from a Robben corner; his effort is less than challenging for Buffon this time though, with the ball nudged well wide at the left post.
47' Wagner! A close-range header almost draws Bayern level from the off but an excellent leap from Buffon tips the ball away from danger.
46' ...and brought on Meritan Shabani for Batista-Meier.
...who have also replaced Stanisic with David Alaba...
...Kingsley Coman has taken the place of Ribery for Bayern...
We're back underway in Austria with a few changes at the break...
Niko Kovac may have some questions for his senior side after PSG's youthful XI ran rings around them on occasions - but his side have controlled more of the ball in a fairly even encounter so far. Thomas Tuchel will want more of the same; can his young side hold on for the win?
With a few seconds still on the clock and the ball in midfield, the referee blows prematurely for half-time, meaning that PSG go in at the break with the lead thanks to Timothy Weah's goal just after half-an-hour in Austria. At half-time in Klagenfurt, it's Bayern Munich 0-1 Paris Saint-Germain.
45' HALF-TIME: BAYERN MUNICH 0-1 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN
43' Weah cut back on himself having broken down the left wing and squares a ball to Rabiot in front of the Bayern box; he can't muster a clean shot though and Ulreich picks out the tumbling ball from mid-air.
41' Nkunku! It's been an excellent first-half for the PSG man and now he flashes an effort just over the crossbar from the right-edge of the box, having turned Bernat inside out.
39' Robben and Rafinha plump for a faster attack down the right as Bayern's response but Nsoki is wise to the move and intercepts, duly blasting the ball back downfield in a moment of nervousness.
37' The game has slipped into a brief lull, with the goal forcing both sides into a rethink of their approach.
35' Rabiot picks up a loose ball on the edge of his own box and tears to halfway before blasting a long ball to his left for Weah. His final touch is poor though and it skips away for a throw-in before the teenager can recover it.
31' Rimane's assist was lovely, coming again from some lazy passing in midfield from Bayern that was exploited with a clinical counter-attack.
WEAH FOR PSG! Just over half-an-hour gone and it's the youthful French side who take the lead thanks to a calm strike from the teenage striker! Released down the right by Rimane, he steps in off his right foot and places it into the bottom-left corner past Ulreich. 1-0 to PSG.
30' A prolonged spell of pressure on the PSG box from Bayern comes to nothing as another misplaced Rafinha pass is pounced on and driven back to midfield.
27' Rabiot gets the header again to the corner from Nkunku; this time though, his effort pings off wide to the left, far beyond the post and Ulreich.
26' Nkunku feeds a ball down the right to Bernede who looks to spear a cross in. He gets a deflection off Bernat though and PSG have the corner.
24' Ribery! The Bayern captain goes from 20 yards out with a low strike - but it fizzes wide at the far-right post and leaves Buffon untroubled.
23' A nervy moment for Bayern after Rafinha's misplaced back-pass takes a deflection off Weah and almost tumbles over Ulreich's head, with the keeper just hooking it out of the air before it falls into his empty goal behind him.
21' Weah from 15 yards! The 18-year-old - son of PSG club legend George - can't hit the mark from the left of the box though and curls it over the near post.
20' Still no goals in Klagenfurt though Wagner almost gets his foot to a dangerous cross on the edge of the PSG box that went close to exploiting that young defence.
17' Diarra and Bernede counter briskly through centre-field on the back of a smart Rabiot pass; neither can find a finish though from outside the box and a deflection off Stanisic sends the ball flying back into the opposition half.
15' Toufiqui sparks down the left wing and curls a cut-back pass in for Nkunku; the PSG man can't connect with his attempt though and Sanches is able to whisk it away for Bayern.
13' Bayern can't force a serious attempt from their set-piece and Nsoki clears for PSG.
12' Stop from Buffon! Batista-Meier cuts in off the right flank and scuffs a shot low towards the opposite post, forcing the PSG keeper to dive, tickling the ball out for a corner.
10' Robben and Ribery go close to threading a slick move together down the right for Bayern but it breaks down and Toufiqui carts it away down the other end of the field to spark some quick recovery defending from Martinez.
8' It has been an open, end-to-end encounter so far between the pair as Rabiot breaks down the left flank again and spears a botched cross straight to Ulreich. Neither side yet to break the deadlock early on though.
6' Now Bayern win themselves a corner on the left after Bernat forces Mbe Soh to clear deep with a deflection. Sanchez glides it over the box with a long ball; Will just puts his header wide at the right post.
4' Rabiot with the header! It's a powerful effort steered low by the PSG man from Nkunku's corner; Ulreich does just enough to get low and claim it before the ball can bounce into the back of the net.
3' Bayern concede a corner after Dagba deflects it out on the right. Nkunku will take for PSG.
2' PSG play themselves forward with the first serious moves of the game, led by Nkunku and Toufiqui; Martinez and Will manage to defuse their one-two on the right though and regain possession.
1' We are underway in this 2018 International Champions Cup clash!
The teams are out at Worthersee Stadion and we're moments away from kick-off.
The pair meet for the first time since their encounters in the group stage of last season’s Champions League, when they both finished on 15 points from a possible 18, losing only to each other. PSG won the initial tie 3-0 in Paris thanks to goals from Dani Alves, Cavani and Neymar; Bayern inflicted revenge in the reverse with a 3-1 victory courtesy of a Tolisso brace and a Robert Lewandowski effort.
PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN: Gianluigi Buffon, Loic Mbe Soh, Kevin Rimane, Stanley Nsoki, Lassana Diarra, Antoine Bernede, Adrien Rabiot, Christopher Nkunku, Colin Dagba, Timothy Weah, Azzedine Toufiqui.
BAYERN MUNICH: Sven Ulreich, Rafinha, Javi Martinez, Juan Bernat, Paul Will, Josip Stanisic, Renato Sanches, Oliver Batista-Meier, Arjen Robben, Sandro Wagner, Franck Ribery.
As for PSG, they too are without their World Cup breakout star in the shape of Kylian Mbappe, as well as fellow forwards Neymar and Edison Cavani. They do however have former Juventus keeper Gianluigi Buffon on hand, after he arrived on a free transfer from the Serie A champions earlier this month.
Team news now ahead of kick-off and both sides are understandably under-strength following the 2018 World Cup. For Bayern, they are unable to call upon the services of James Rodriguez, Corentin Tolisso and Thomas Muller, though Arjen Robben features for the Germans having been absent from Russia.
Both sides kick-off their ICC campaigns today in Europe before travelling to further pastures around the world on tour – and both are blooding new managers on the back of championship-winning years. But will it by Bayern’s Niko Kovac who kicks off his tenure with victory? Or will Thomas Tuchel of PSG be the man to walk away with a win in Austria?
Hello and welcome to live coverage of the second game of the 2018 International Champions Cup as Bundesliga holders Bayern Munich square off against Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint-Germain at Worthersee Stadion in Klagenfurt, Austria, in the Audi Football Summit.
