Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Mapfre Stadium in Columbus when Real Madrid and PSG face each other at the 2016 International Champions Cup. Les Parisiens kicked off their ICC campaign in style, with the team outplaying Serie A side Inter 3-1 at Autzen Stadium in Koln. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is no longer part of the team, but new boss Unai Emery has a number of top-class players to choose from and the likes of Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria, who came as substitutes in the 3-1 win over Inter, are likely to make life difficult for the opposition back line. Real Madrid did remarkably well to win the Champions League last season and, no doubt, they will give their best to prove their worth in Thursday’s football match against PSG. Los Blancos are impressive in front of goal and we predict that both teams are going to find the net in the Mapfre Stadium clash.
