Dynamo Dresden vs Everton:
Dresden Cup 2016.
Date: Friday, July 29 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Stadion Dresden.
Dresden cup host Dynamo Dresden will be facing English side Everton for their first game of the pre-season tournament in Germany. The tournament kick-off when Werder Bremen line-up against Real Betis earlier the same day.
Going to this pre-season tourney, Dynamo Dresden were involved in 5 pre-season clashes. They had won two, drew two and bowing to defeat in one. Dynamo are preparing hard for the fight to avoid relegation after gaining promotion to the second tier of the Bundesliga. The German side lost only one of their last 18 games at the Stadion Dresden during their 2015/2016 third division winning season.
Everton, who are now under the new management of Ronald Koeman are coming on the back of three wins from three friendly matches played in this pre-season so far. They defeated Czech based club Jablonec with a lone goal, and thrashed Barnsley 3-0, followed by a 3-1 win against Milton Keynes. Expectations are high at the Merseyside following the disappointments in the last few seasons and Koeman will be keen to ensure preparations go well to get his squad ready for a hectic English Premier League season.
Dynamo Dresden: Predicted Line-Up (4-4-2)

Everton: Predicted Line-Up (4-2-3-1)

Both sides will be facing each other for the first time.
Dynamo Dresden vs Everton: Prediction
Dresden form at home during 2015/2016 season played a vital role in earning promotion to the second division. This could be a major threat to the visiting sides as the loud singing fans could play as the 12th man.
Everton are also in good form but they must up the ante while facing a squad like Desden at their own backyard. I believe the Merseyside Blues will eventually get their win, but this is a going to a hard fought battle.
A narrow 2-1 win for Everton is my prediction for this match and I also back both sides to find the back of the net, which I believe is the safest tip for this encounter.
