Our football match prediction:
Against all odds, Leipzig secured a top-three finish in the 2016/2017 Bundesliga campaign. The Red Bulls proved their worth in the German top flight last term and they continue with thrilling performances. Leizpig have been scoring goals for fun in July friendly games and we predict that the Germans are going to find the net in their Emirates Cup opener against Sevilla. Los Sevillanos have big ambitions for the upcoming tournament as well and it remains to be seen if new coach Eduardo Berizzo is going to win his first ever trophy with the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan outfit. A man to watch in the La Liga side will be Ben Yedder, who produced a fine display in a 3-1 win over Cerezo Osaka. A high-scoring affair appears on the cards and there is every chance both teams will find the net in the Emirates Stadium clash. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever.
