The Best European Teams Play Cup Matches on SaturdayPublished August 3, 2019 by Florin P
PSG and Rennes lock horns in the French Trophee des Champions, while other top European clubs play key matches on both sides of the Atlantic.
Super Cups are usually the most exciting matches scheduled in early August and these two Saturday games make no exception. Bayern Munich and Dortmund gear up for another competitive season in the German Bundesliga with a grudge match in the Super Cup. In France, PSG and Rennes meet once again in a decisive cup match, after the latter has caused a major upset last season. On the other side of the Atlantic, Manchester United and AC Milan lock horns in the International Champions Cup.
Bayern Munich Favorite to Win another Trophy
Bayern Munich have won the German Bundesliga once again, after closing a seemingly insurmountable gap separating them from Dortmund. These are the two teams that will compete for the title this year and the reigning champions have a golden opportunity to win another trophy 2019. They play on the road, but even so, bet365 Sports regards them as favorites, as reflected by the odds of 11/10. Dortmund have home pitch advantage, which under normal circumstances should grant them the first chance to prevail. This is an emotional game with a high chance of many goals being scored and many yellow cards shown.
PSG Seeks Vengeance over Rennes
Rennes has failed to meet the high expectations of their fans in the French first division. On the other hand, they have been surprisingly successful in the French Cup over the last couple of years. They have made a deep run in this tournament and last season they won the final against PSG. What made that victory even more impressive is that Rennes was able to overcome an early deficit and win the trophy at penalties. This time, the match is played in China so nobody will have home pitch advantage. This benefits PSG who had the better side, so punters can expect only odds of 7/20 on them to win.
Manchester United Seeks Third Victory at the ICC
Manchester United and AC Milan play in the third match at the International Champions Cup, yet the teams are at the opposite ends of form. The British team has won both games, while the Italians are searching for their first victory in this tournament. The previous matches were played on American soil, but this time the former Champions League winners will compete in Cardiff. Manchester United is expected to have more fans in the stands and there are also in better form, so the odds of 4/5 offered by Intertops Sports on them to win are fully justified.
