Manchester United are set to take on FC Barcelona in the high profile friendly game on Wednesday night, 26th July 2017 at the FedExField stadium in Landover. It will be United’s fifth game on the tour while Barcelona play their second pre-season match having beating Juventus a few days earlier. All eyes will be on Neymar again as rumours of his potential move to PSG are still afloat in the media. United on the other hand are likely to start with their full strength team with Lukaku and Pogba starting and will be interesting to see how Mourinho goes about this game.
FC Barcelona will be using their full squad, possibly two different teams in either half to give everyone a chance to catch up to required match fitness but we can safely assume the trio of Messi, Neymar and Suarez will start upfront on Wednesday. United so far has made four wins out of first four pre-season games and this is the last big match they will be playing before heading back to europe for couple of friendlies against Sampdoria and some Swedish side. You can follow the game live via Manchester United official tv channel MUTV or their official website and app with a subscription free of as low as $7 a month which include all United pre-season games.
Manchester United defeated Real Madrid in their recent encounter on dreadful penalty shoot out while 2-0 win over City was another good win for United on the tour. Barcelona’s preparations for the new season were impacted by Neymar’s potential move to PSG but in the last couple of days that story has gone a bit quite and it seems Neymar will sign an improved contract to remain at Barcelona.
Manchester United meet Barcelona couple of years ago in same pre-season event and they won the game on that occasion. Mourinho has been very vocal about his satisfaction of pre-season tour and they see off USA with their last game against Barcelona on Wednesday.
