Bet Live as Manchester Utd Concludes Asia TourPublished July 29, 2013 by OCR Editor
Kitchee SC v. Manchester United, 1pm UK Time today.
Manchester United wrap up their five-game pre-season tour of Australia and Asia with a match against Hong Kong's Kitchee SC today. While this is shaping up as the easiest game of their tour, reports have been surfacing in the lead-up about the problematic state of the pitch.
Several players from Manchester City, Sunderland and Tottenham suffered injuries during the Barclays Asia Trophy on the same pitch last week. City center-half Matija Nastasic is expected to miss the start of the season after falling on what Sunderland midfielder Craig Gardner called an "absolutely horrendous" pitch.
Although relatively unknown outside Asia, Kitchee Sports Club has knocked off some big names in the past. In the middle part of last decade they managed to defeat Italy's AC Milan and Juventus in successive pre-seasons.
William Hill Sports has Manchester United starting the game as strong pre-match favorites, despite Kitchee's strong credentials and the worrisome pitch. In the hours leading up the match, Man Utd is 1/12, Kitchee is 16/1 and the draw is paying 6/1.
