Our football match prediction:
All eyes will be on FedEx Field when Barcelona and Manchester United face each other in the International Champions Cup derby. Despite the fact that Neymar is on the verge of leaving the club, Luis Enrique’s men are seen as hot favourites to win Thursday’s football game against the Red Devils, but they will have to prove their worth on the field. Leo Messi is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders and, no doubt, he is capable of helping Barca get their revenge on Man Utd for a 3-1 loss at the 2015 International Champions Cup. Jose Mourinho’s troops defeated their local rivals Manchester City in their opener, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the game against the star-studded La Liga side. Summer signing Romelu Lukaku scored in the 2-0 win over Man City, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Highlighted Player (Lukaku):
Romelu Lukaku Bolingoli, born on 13th of ay 1993 is a Belgian player with roots form Congo. Lukaku played for several youth teams before he got picked up by RSC Anderlecht. After playing for only 2 seasons for Anderlecht Chelsea picked him up for around12 million euro. Lukaku was never able to get a spot in the starting eleven of Chelsea and after playing for WBA he moved to Everton for approximately 35 million euro.Lukaku made his debut in February 2010 by the age of 16 and is one of the youngest players that player for the highest Belgian national team. The biggest achievement of Lukakui is winning the Eerste klasse in Belgium and the English FA Cup. With his strength and goal scoring abilities Lukaku can be considered as one of the deadliest strikers of the world. Nicknames for Lukaku are Big Rom and the Tank.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles. A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium. The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
