Matchday 4 of the International Champions Cup will end with the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United. Both clubs were able to win their opening match against an Italian team. Tottenham won at the last minute against Juventus and Manchester United conquered a 1-0 win against Inter Milan. The Londoners will be favorites in spite of all these results. Whether this actually applies or whether Manchester United has good chances, you will learn in our forecast below. The kick-off is on Thursday at 13:30.
Second victory for the Tottenham Hotspur?
The Tottenham Hotspur have become one of the best teams in Europe in recent years and each year they are among the favorites in the English Premier League as well as in the UEFA Champions League. For 4 years, they finish the table in England in the top 4 and are thus among the most consistent teams. Last season’s record was 23 wins, 2 draws and 13 defeats. After 38th matchdays, this resulted in 71 points and a goal difference of 67:39 goals. Also in the UEFA Champions League one could attract attention for the first time and reached for the first time in the club’s history the final. Although this was lost and the team was again without a title, but the positive development is not to be overlooked. The main reason for this is the coach Mauricio Pochettino. For 5 years, the Argentine now looks after the London club and led him back to the top in Europe. He developed current stars such as Christian Eriksen, Harry Kane or Dele Alli. They will once again be among the favorites this season and now want to build up a certain amount of self-confidence at the International Champions Cup. In the first game against series champion Juventus Turin this has been done very well and you could win at the last minute with 3: 2. Above all, one must praise the effectiveness of the Londoners, because of the 5 scored shots landed three in goal. Only the defensive still has to gain stability, but there were also mostly young players.
Home game for Manchester United?
Manchester United will probably enjoy a small home advantage in this game as the club enjoys a large following in China and is particularly popular for its successful history. But this story can not be continued at the moment and Manchester United threatens the case in the middle class in Europe. Even in the English Premier League you can not play properly for years for the championship. Three times in the last 5 years, they have not reached the top 4 and thus the UEFA Champions League. Despite finishing 6th in last season, Norwegian coach Ole Gunnar Solskajer has been offered a new contract, which he will continue to look after the team this year. Last year, this was like a small roller coaster ride, which ended in sixth place after a very weak second half. 19 wins, 9 draws and 10 defeats were revealed after 38 games and the goal difference of 65:54 goals was also not impressive. Midfield player Daniel James and defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka have already signed up to join in next season. In addition, they are close to the commitment of Harry Maguire as the new defensive chief. This will be missing in the game against Tottenham, however. In the first game against Inter Milan, the defensive still worked extremely well and they barely missed a chance. The offensive, however, created many opportunities, but could only use a single to 1-0 victory. The record against Tottenham should also encourage, because 58 of 102 games could win and only 23 times had to give up the team. The win rate is thus at a good 56.9%.
Football Prediction of the Day Tottenham vs Manchester United
Both teams were able to win their first game and are thus well started in the tournament. In terms of quality, we would prefer Tottenham, but Manchester United will probably enjoy a small home advantage. The odds on a win bet are very balanced, which is why we would advise against it here. While Tottenham was particularly offensively strong presented, Manchester had his strength on the defensive. Due to this fact we think that the teams will neutralize themselves a bit and fall under 3.5 goals. Despite this recommendation, we think that both Tottenham, and Manchester succeeds. A tip on both teams meet YES here would be the logical consequence.
