The International Champions Cup brings Arsenal, Real Madrid, Fiorentina, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Tottenham on American soil.
In anticipation of the high profile matches played in the flagship European competitions, the best football teams in the world lock horns on American soil. The International Champions Cup is underway, with the first matches being played mid-week. Sunday games, however, are the most anticipated once at the entire tournament that is scheduled to conclude on August 8.
Fiorentina Seeks Second Victory at the ICC
Fiorentina has started its campaign at the International Champions Cup with an impressive victory over Guadalajara. They were able to recover after conceding an early goal and are hoping for back-to-back victories when they take on Arsenal. The match is scheduled just before midnight and bet365 Sports justly regards the English side as favorite to prevail.
Arsenal have had their mettle tested against Bayern Munich and they expect an easier match against Fiorentina. Both teams score a lot of goals and have travel to the US determined to test their offensive line up. Betting on outright victory for Arsenal can be a bit risky given the fact that they’ve only had two days of rest after a demanding match. A wager on more than 2.5 goals to be scored looks like a better option.
Bayern Munich and Real Madrid Lock Horns Again
The rivalry between Bayern Munich and Real Madrid is one of the most heated ones among European clubs. They have met on 18 occasions and the Spanish outfit has a slight advantage with nine victories and only seven defeats. Home pitch advantage has always been important in the series, but overall it was Real Madrid that has played better on the road. This explains why they are narrow favorites at 888 Sport.
Real Madrid has been a huge disappointment last season, both on the domestic front and the Champions League. They will use the opportunity provided by the International Champions Cup to try their new forwards: Hazard and Jovic. Real Madrid has paid a lot of money for them and now expects these players to rise to the occasion and kickstart their ICC campaign with a victory over a bitter rival.
Champions League Finalists Meet at the ICC
Juventus and Tottenham were unable to win the Champions League finals they’ve played against Real Madrid and Liverpool. Both have performed well in the past and the International Champions Cup, with Tottenham finishing at the top of the standings last year. The English side is only credited with the second chance and odds of 23/10 by Winner Sports to defeat Juventus in their first match in the US
Compared to last season, Juventus have a better offensive line up, with Cristiano Ronaldo, while Buffon has returned in the goal. They are one of the strongest European teams and not surprisingly, favorites to win this match. Punters betting on an outright victory for the Italians will be paid at 11/19 if they prevail.
