4Manchester United, AS Roma: teams with something to provehttps://img-1-3.sbostatic.com/en/cdn/cmsi/8481.jpg
Having Louis van Gaal on the field signals Manchester United revamp ahead of the upcoming Premier League season. AS Roma, on the other hand, want to prove that they are not just a mere number two team second to Juventus in the 2013/14 Serie A. Both teams will battle for the International Champions Cup this July 27, 04:10 (GMT+8). Will Manchester United return to being a threat again in international competition?
La Liga's Real Madrid, the top team in the International Champions Cup tournament having won the inaugural 2013 title, will face Serie A's Inter Milan on July 27, 06:00 (GMT+8) at the California Memorial Stadium. Carlo Ancelotti's side are clear favourites over Walter Mazzarri's men, considering Real Madrid's roster, firepower and their performance in this tournament last year. However, Inter Milan have a handful of talents that could take the defending champions by surprise.
Current top team Malmo are ahead of Kalmar, 34-27, at the Allsvenskan table following a 1-1 draw in their last meeting. But as the ground shifts to Swedbank Stadion, can Hans Eklund's side halt the league leader come their July 26 appointment at 22:00 (GMT+8)? The last time Kalmar played away from their home turf, they conceded three goals to AIK and finished the match sans a goal (3-0).
When it comes to the head-to-head record, Elfsborg are better than Norrkoping. The July 27, 23:30 (GMT+8) match gives Norrkoping a chance to put one over Elfsborg and inch higher in the table. Elfsborg so far have been consistent in staying within range of at least a top three spot in the table, while Norrkoping winning in this match could improve their confidence, and at least help them stay in midtable for the moment.
