Man City vs Real Madrid: Blues to be better prepared

Big-spending Manchester City are tipped to secure a further boost to their pre-season morale by beating Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Pep Guardiola has splashed more than £200million in cash to bring in Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Ederson, Kyle Walker and Danilo this summer, ahead of his second campaign in charge of the Blues.

That should inspire a feelgood factor within the squad and ensure everyone is playing for places, so the Citizens appeal at 21/10 in our Man City vs Real Madrid betting tips.

A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds

Manchester City can be forgiven for a sluggish start when going down 2-0 to neighbours United in Texas last week, as that was their first pre-season game and the Red Devils’ third.

However, the Blues steadily grew into the game and Guardiola noted: “I saw many, many good things. We played quite well, especially in the second half.”

With a full week to prepare for this second International Champions Cup fixture in Los Angeles, there is every chance of City now producing the fast, free-flowing football they have become renowned for when going forward.

Looking at the Man City vs Real Madrid odds, we like 333/100 for the Blues to win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds

Real Madrid only went down on penalties against Manchester United in California on Sunday but, in truth, they failed to find much rhythm during a 1-1 draw in normal time.

Soaring temperatures won’t have helped the Spanish giants to work through that first pre-season fixture in the manner hoped for and Zinedine Zidane changed his entire team at the break.

A relatively quick turn-around for this contest gives further cause for concern that Real may again be caught just short of preparation, especially with Cristiano Ronaldo being rested during this tournament.

Real may have their moments, but we’re taking 21/2 for City to prevail 2-1.
