Barcelona vs Manchester United: Prediction
This tournament has so far produced some unpredictable results. But as neutrals, we are highly entertained by the quality of attacking play by all teams in the competition. If the match produce few goals, it is only because of the inability of a team to take their chances on a given day.
United are slightly better team on the day, mainly because of the confidence generated from their recent unbeaten run. On top of that, they have the benefit of playing more games in this pre-season.
