Barcelona vs Manchester United Preview and Prediction: Draw 1- 1 at 6/1
Barcelona and Manchester United will play in the International Champions Cup at the FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland on Thursday, 27th July.
This is the first meeting between these teams for two years. They last played in the International Champions Cup in July 2015 and Manchester United won that game 1 – 3.
Barcelona defeated Juventus 1 – 2 over the weekend in what was their first match since winning the Copa Del Rey in May. As usual it was a highly impressive performance from the team and Neymar almost scored a hat trick in a dominant display.
Manchester United were also highly impressive over the weekend defeating their rivals Manchester City 2 – 0 and then defeating Real Madrid on penalties. New recruit Romelu Lukaku once again proved his work scoring his second goal in two games while Marcus Rashford also found the back of the net.
Both the teams have been in fine form recently and this should make for a truly exciting match. They are both on winning streaks and eager to make the most of the preseason. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see this game go down to the wire.
A 1 – 1 draw is the most likely outcome with Paddy Power and Boyle Sports offering odds of 6/1 and 11/2 respectively.
Paddy Power Odds: 10/11 Barcelona to Win, 13/5 for a Draw and 12/5 Manchester United to Win
