International Champions Cup 2016 Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
Is the Leicester surprise fading out of people’s mind, finally? The story will forever own a spot in the heart of every football fan, no doubt about that, but now people are more curious to see how they will perform in the new season.
The International Champions Cup is the best place to see the Premier League champions perform – and this week we’ll see them up against a team they might encounter in the Champions League.
03/08/2016 – Stockholm, Sweden
Their opponents, Barcelona, really need no introduction. They’ve been quite active on the transfer market this year and have brought in a couple of French players (Digne, Umtiti) and Portuguese midfielder Andre Gomes from Valencia, along with Denis Suarez.
Their already fully-talented squad now has some much-needed defensive stability and depth and even some good option to first-choice midfielders. They will surely be a force in the latter stages of the CL.
Meanwhile, Leicester have followed up an unimpressive transfer campaign with some unimpressive results. They have shown again and again that they rely on counter-attacks and on the genius of Mahrez – if both of these fail, they don’t really have a clear way to open an opposition.
Paris Saint-Germain made quick work of them in their last game, completely dominating the English champions and winning 4-0, at the end of a game where they had the ball for 68% of the time.
This fact brings us to the first bet of the evening. We not only back Barcelona to win this friendly, but we expect them to have over 65% possession and even win by a 2 or 3 goal margin.
Leicester have not yet shown they can play with top clubs week-in and week-out, and the Spaniards will know how to profit. Their awesome attacking trio will carve the massive, but slow English defense quite a few times.
