Hongkou Football Stadium
The Line: -- Over/Under:
Manchester United will play against Tottenham in the International Champions Cup.
Manchester United have had a very strong start to their preseason as they have won all 3 of their games. In their previous outing, Manchester United defeated Inter Milan 1-0. It was a dominant display by Manchester United as they controlled 61% of the possession and completed 580 passes at an accuracy of 90%. The Red Devils took 21 shots with 8 shots on target. Mason Greenwood played extremely well for Manchester United as the English midfielder scored the only goal of the game. Greenwood has scored in the last two games for Manchester United. David de Gea also played well as he kept a clean sheet. Tottenham will be a tougher test for Manchester United but the team will be optimistic considering their recent form.
On the other side of the coin, Tottenham had a big win in their previous match as they defeated Juventus 3-2. Tottenham only had 46% of the ball of the team was very efficient with the ball as they managed to take 19 shots. Harry Kane scored the winning goal for Tottenham as the English striker scored in injury time. Erik Lamela and Lucas Moura both scored also for Tottenham. Tottenham hadn’t played since the Champions League final but the team looked in good form in the match against Juventus. With 90 minutes of football under their belt, Tottenham should only improve in this match.
This match between Tottenham and Manchester United is set to be played at the Hongkou Football Stadium in Shanghai, China.
Both Manchester United and Tottenham have been playing well in the preseason and both teams will look to win this match since it will give them momentum as they head into the start of the Premier League season. As far as predicting a winner is concerned, I am going to pick Manchester United to win this match. Tottenham have only played 1 game while Manchester United have played 3 fixtures which means the Red Devils are in a better rhythm. Manchester United were very impressive in their match against Inter Milan and I see them being good enough to defeat Tottenham in this fixture.
