International Champions Cup matches, Wednesday 1st August

Strong Madrid squad will beat Man Utd

Manchester United 5.00 v Real Madrid 1.68; The Draw 4.60
Kick off 01:05, Live on MUTV
Manchester United's understrength team have yet to win a match in 90 minutes during their tour of the USA. They played their fourth game over the weekend and were thrashed 4-1 by Liverpool, which doesn't bode well for their chances against a strong Real Madrid squad.
Real have benefitted from the early exits of Germany and Spain from the World Cup to boost a squad in which the likes of Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema have enjoyed the summer off. The Champions League holders look excellent value at 1.68 to win their opening ICC match.

Unbeaten Spurs can continue run against Milan

Tottenham 2.58 v AC Milan 2.82; The Draw 3.50
Kick off 01:35, Live on Premier Sports
Despite the fact that Christian Eriksen is the only senior central midfielder currently available to Mauricio Pochettino, the manager's Tottenham team are faring well in America. They beat Roma 4-1 in their opening match, before fighting back from being two goals down against Barcelona to draw 2-2, only to lose the resulting penalty shootout.
AC Milan also lost on penalties in their only ICC match, after drawing 1-1 with Manchester United in normal time. They have a decent group of players available to Gennaro Gattuso, but with Spurs looking dangerous in attack, it's worth backing the Londoners in the Draw No Betmarket at 1.80.

Barca a huge price to beat recently thrashed Roma

Barcelona 3.20 v Roma 2.16; The Draw 4.10
Kick off 03:05
As mentioned, Roma were beaten heavily by Spurs, so it's a surprise to see them as favourites against Barcelona. Roma are clearly being favoured due to the fact that they have full-strength squad available, while Barcelona are without many of their stars, but the fact remains that the Italians conceded four first-half goals against Tottenham.
It's very tempting to back Barca as such a big price, but it's large enough that you can play it safe and still see a good return. Barcelona are 2.44 in the Draw No Bet market and 1.81 to avoid defeat in the Double Chance market.

London derby will produce draw in Ireland

Arsenal 2.40 v Chelsea 3.00; The Draw 3.80
Kick off 20:05, Live on Premier Sports
It's a London derby in Dublin on Saturday evening, as Arsenal meet Chelsea. The Gunners will come into this match on a high after thrashing PSG 5-1 last week, but the French side are seriously understrength and Chelsea should represent a much tougher challenge.
Chelsea have a strong group of players available to their new manager Maurizio Sarri and drew their opening ICC match with Inter Milan, before winning on penalties. The odds on another draw seem large, so back the stalemate at 3.80.

Benfica and Lyon well-matched

Benfica 2.70 v Lyon 2.68; The Draw 3.55
Kick off 21:00
Both of Benfica's ICC matches have ended as draws. They beat Borussia Dortmund on penalties, before losing to Juventus in a shootout on Saturday. These were impressive results, as both Dortmund and Juve have brought good squads to the USA.
This is Lyon's first ICC game, but they are well underway with their pre-season, having played four times (W2 D1 L1). It's likely to be another tight match for Benfica and as the outsider at 3.55the draw represents the value.
