International Champions Cup 2016 Betting Previews, Odds And Tips
The no.1 friendly competition that takes place in recent times, the International Champions Cup, recently started, with the best teams around the world showing off their new summer signings.
This period is one in which teams looks more for reaching their top form and gaining team chemistry and less for good results. This makes the competition more spectacular, but harder to predict.
28 July – Shenzhen, China
The game between Dortmund and Manchester City is, without a doubt, the most highly anticipated game of this period. The German team trashed Manchester United in their first friendly of the year with an overall 4-1 score and showed some great attacking football.
Dortmund’s creative attacking players, Aubameyang, Kagawa and Reus are already a known force, and will only get better with the new additions, Goetze and Schurrle. Their start as clear favorites in the game against the other team in Manchester, although Guardiola’s side will prove a tough nut to crack.
On the other side, Guardiola cannot wait to show see what his team can do in competitive games. This game also features a Gundogan playing for the first time against his former team, along with other interesting duels.
We have to see if Man City are able to play the tiki-taka style Guardiola loves so much, or if he will adapt to the rigors of British football. This is Man City’s first serious outing of the season – and people will be eager to see them play.
From a betting perspective, this game is one of the easiest to predict from this series of friendlies. Dortmund are on a high, and City haven’t been able to produce good football for quite a while – and Guardiola’s installation is unlikely to change that so quickly.
Betting on Dortmund to score is a great idea, as well as Dortmund to win and over 2,5 goals, or simply go for the over bet. This is only of the bets we have the highest confidence in – let’s see how it plays out.
Dortmund To Win: 2.87 or 15/8
Goals/Both Teams To Score – Over 2.5 & Yes: 2.05 or 21/20
Team Goals – Dortmund Over 1.5: 2.35 or 27/20
Result/Total Goals – Dortmund To Win & Over 2.5: 4.33 or 10/3
