Bayern to take on Kanoute’s new club
The 2011-12 Champions League runners-up will also face fellow Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg on July 26 in Guangzhou. Bayern's clash with Beijing will attempt to promote cultural communications between China and Germany.
Meanwhile, Guoan general manager Gao Chao told Xinhua said the match was a good opportunity for the club to learn off a top outfit.
"We are very happy to play a friendly match against Bayern," Gao said. "It's a good chance for us to learn from world top clubs."
Upon the announcement of the tour late last month, Bayern acting board member Andreas Jung said the club hopes to bring their strongest squad, including eight Germany internationals.
