Our prediction for this match:
Manchester United and Club America face each other at University of Phoenix Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Friday’s program. This will be Man Utd’s first warm-up game of pre-season and, no doubt, they want to make a flying start. The likes of Phil Jones, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini and Romelu Lukaku, who played at the 2018 FIFA World Cup finals, are likely to be rested in Friday’s football match against Club America, but Jose Mourinho has a number of top-class players to choose from. The Mexican side are likely to adopt a defence-minded approach against the Red Devils, but we do not believe that they are capable of matching the Premier League outfit. When the two teams met at the 2015 International Champions Cup Manchester United recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Club America.
