Our tipster thinks that Jose Mourinho's men can claim their first pre-season win against Serie A side in the International Champions Cup in California

Manchester United meet AC Milan as both teams kick off their International Champions Cup campaign in Los Angeles.

The match will be United's third pre-season fixture on American soil following back-to-back draws against Club America and San Jose Earthquakes respectively.

Latest odds

Manchester United  won their opening fixture in this competition last season against Manchester City and are 29/20 (2.45) favourites to kick off their campaign with a win again.

Milan will play in European competition this term after seeing a ban overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport last week and, so, Gennaro Gattuso's men will be in good spirits.

SportPesa go 33/20 (2.65) that Milan maintain that feelgood factor and win the match, while the odds compilers offer 14/5 (3.80) that the tie remains all square at the end of 90 minutes.

Team news

Nemanja Matic could make his first pre-season appearance for Manchester United after joining up with the squad at the weekend after his efforts for Serbia in Russia.

Alexis Sanchez is likely to continue in attack with Romelu Lukaku enjoying a break after scoring four World Cup goals for Belgium.

Ivan Strinic, Lucas Biglia, Andrea Conti, Riccardo Montolivo and Carlos Bacca are amongst the absentees from Gattuso's squad.

Goals galore?

There were eight goals scored in Milan's two appearances in this competition last term and SportPesa offer 20/31 (1.65) that there are more than two goals in this game.

The same firm offer 4/7 (1.57) that both teams are on target here, as has been the case in seven of United's 12 total games in this tournament.


United could be slightly sharper than the Serie A side, having already played two warm-up matches on US soil and SportPesa's 29/20 (2.45) quote for Mourinho's men to win on Wednesday night could represent decent value.
