Manchester United will begin their preseason against Perth Glory at Optus Stadium.
Perth Glory had an incredible A-League season as the team finished top of the table and finished second in the finals. The attack was Perth Glory’s biggest strength as they scored the most goals in the competition. Perth Glory scored 56 goals in the regular A-League season. Perth Glory were also the best defensive team in the A-League as the team only conceded 23 goals in their 27 games. This is a big game for Perth Glory since it is a chance for the team to compete against one of the biggest clubs in the world.
The key player for Perth Glory has been Diego Castro. The Spanish winger has been very good for Perth Glory as he provides assists and goals. Andy Keogh is also a vital player for Perth Glory as the Irish striker top-scored for the club last season. Keogh scored 15 goals last season.
Looking at Manchester United, the Red Devils are playing a very impressive squad. Players like Paul Pogba and Nemanja Matic have made the trip to Australia and they will be keen to display their skills to the fans. This game is a chance for Manchester United to grow its global brand and the team will expect to play an attractive brand of football.
Manchester United had a poor season and the players will be aware that they must improve. This match will be a good chance for younger players to attract the attention of the manager.
This will be the first time that Perth Glory and Manchester United will be playing each other.
Perth Glory are one of the strongest club teams in Australia but I don’t see them having enough skill to compete with Manchester United. The Red Devils have one of the strongest teams in the world and the team has brought its big players to Australia for this game. Manchester United will want to impress their Australian fans and I see them comfortably defeating Perth Glory in this match.
