It's the sixth year for International Champions Cup, where the biggest groups play in preparation friendly games before the start of its tournaments. The International Champions Cup takes place in different cities of America, Asia and Europe of course.
Manchester's 'Citizens' did great last season and got the top quite easily. The point is to stay on top and that's what they will try to achieve along with the Champions League. Last year they were eliminated from Liverpool so they didn't go further in the tournament. Their team were reinforced with Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City and the Dutch defender Sander from Zwolle. They have some absences at the start of their preparation, since most of their players participated in the World Cup and now they are on holiday. Pep Guardiola will make a good use of his younger players until the return of his older players.
On the other hand, the German team came 4th in Bundesliga. They will participate in Champions League but they had many absences during the season. Swiss Lucien Favre is now on team's bench. They had many transcriptions including Marwin Hitz, Thomas Delaney, Abdou Diallo, Marius Wolf and Achraf Hakimi. Papastathopoulos, Andriy Yarmolenko and Castro were resigned. This will be the second friendly game for Dortmund since they won 1-0 Austria last week in Vienna.
Guardiola has many absences of his core players and so he will make a good use of his younger ones. Borussia Dortmund have many of his core players in preparation. This is a friendly game, however we bet on 'yellows' prevalence.
