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.
Manchester City will face AC Milan in the International Champions Cup on July 28, 04:00 (GMT+8) at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The English Premier League champions have won against Milan in a friendly that ended with a 3-5 scoreline back in 2013. Manuel Pellegrini's side will come into the match as favourites against a side plagued with problems in coaching last season. Can Filippo Inzaghi lead his side to his first competitive victory?
The Greeks, who blew past AC Milan via a 0-3 victory, will have their second match in the tournament as they clash with Liverpool on July 28, 06:00 (GMT+8) at Soldier Field, Chicago. Olympiacos’ winning start to the tournament could boost their confidence and inspire them to go for back-to-back wins. But the challenger this time around is a talent-laden side in Liverpool, which will definitely push Olympiacos to the limit.
Paris Saint-Germain, the current Ligue 1 champs, are arguably the strongest team in France so far, but Guingamp almost beat them the last time they met, with both teams settling for a 1-1 draw last January 26. Guingamp get the chance to duplicate their 2010 win over PSG as the two teams meet in France Super Cup. Can Guingamp get the win or will PSG emerge triumphant? Match is on August 3 at 02:00 (GMT+8).
