It is still quite early in pre-season but teams are trying to play their best football in order to get their winning mentality going by winning the International Champions Cup. The match of interest is between Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund. This game is set to be quite an interesting contest since both sides have had some major changes to their teams and they will be looking to find their perfect strategy.
Manchester City have not had the best pre-season so far but a win here will be great for them to turn that around. This team has tons of talents but their tactical setup is not yet correct. As a result, they have not looked very good. That being said, this team has one of the best managers in the world and Pep will surely get things right in the coming months. As far as this game is concerned though, I think they will have to rely a lot more on talent than tactical genius since the latter is still a work in progress.
On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund will be looking to build a team that will only later be improved by their new signings. This team has a ton of talent already and if they can hold on to some of their players from last season then they can go far. That being said, this will be a chance for them to experiment and that should open them up to some problems.
I think Manchester City will win this game since they are in a much larger need to turn their form around. We are getting a good enough price to bet on this result and I think that any stake you place here is acceptable. Other than that bet, looking the over 2.5 goals is probably the better option since in pre-season defenses are often not as organized as they should be.
