Bayern Munich vs. MLS All-Stars: What Pep Guardiola Learned in Portland
Ted S. Warren/Associated Press

Bayern Munich were dealt their first defeat of the 2014-15 preseason on Thursday in what was their final match before next week's DFL-Superpokal clash with Borussia Dortmund. The German giants saw an early lead over the MLS All-Stars overturned in the second half as the American selection claimed the spoils of their friendly match in Portland, Oregon, with a 2-1 victory.

Pep Guardiola welcomed back many of Bayern's World Cup stars, including Thomas Muller, Mario Gotze, Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger. The aforementioned and more rejoined the team in the hours leading up to kick-off and several played, although Schweinsteiger was forced off early due to an injury.

The vice-captain's injury and result of the match will have had a sobering effect on Bayern after what was an otherwise strong preseason campaign. Click "Begin Slideshow" for a closer look at the most important talking points from the match.
