Yokohama vs Manchester City
International- Club Friendly
Date: Saturday, 27 July 2019
Kick-off at 11:30 UK / 12:30 CET
Venue: International Stadium Yokohama.
Yokohama are on a four-match unbeaten streak and are inching closer to displacing Tokyo at the helm. Their last encounter was a 2-0 win on the road against Vissel Kobe while their last matchup, against Urawa, on home soil finished 3-1 in their favor.
The latter match saw the hosts make more than twenty attempts at goal, six of which were on target. Three different players got their names on the scoresheet for the home side as well.
Manchester City are one of the top sides in England, and they tasted success in both the FA Cup as well as the domestic league last season. They were especially impressive towards the end of the campaign and did just enough to deny Liverpool a hand on the silverware with a one-point advantage.
It will certainly be anything but a tight affair on Saturday though, with City poised to walk away with a landslide victory in their maiden clash with the Japanese club.

- The teams have not faced each other previously on any occasion.
Yokohama vs Manchester City Prediction
The hosts have not lost a game at home this year in all competitions, but face it, they have not gone up against a team like Manchester City all year either.
The English giants lost their most recent tie against Wolves in the Asia Trophy, and will not be fancying the prospect of suffering back to back defeats. Guardiola will not be taking any chances against the home team, and so expect a fairly lopsided game to unfold when they lock horns in the weekend.
Manchester City were the highest scoring side in the league last season, so expect way over 2.5 goals on the scoresheet, with Yokohama unlikely to contribute to it with a single one of their own.
