Manchester United vs Real Madrid Preview

Manchester United vs Real Madrid

Competition – International Champions Cup 2018

Stadium – Hard Rock Stadium

Date: 1st August 2018

Kick-off time – 01:05 GMT

It is another summer characterized by Jose Mourinho moaning about everything and trying to justify why he may not win a trophy.

The Manchester United boss has had a thin squad to work with this summer following the involvement of most of his players at the World Cup and he has so far failed to sign any of the players he wants to add to his team.

The Red Devils have not won any preseason game in regulation time and they head into this game after a 4-1 drubbing at the hands of Liverpool.

Fred has returned to start his career however they will still be without an attacker or a winger for this game.

Real Madrid are making a late start in the International Champions Cup and they would be looking to have a good preseason for the first time without Cristiano Ronaldo since 2009.

Gareth Bale will most likely become the main man after they dropped their interest in Neymar, however, Vinicius Junior who was expected to play for their B team has been so impressive in training may be set for a starring role.

These games offers more fringe players like Matteo Kovacic and Dani Cabelos the chance to stake a claim in the team also.
