Tour 2018 preview: United v Real Madrid
Tour 2018, presented by Aon, is drawing to a close as Manchester United prepare for our final pre-season game in the United States. The Reds play old foes Real Madrid in the last of three International Champions Cup (ICC) games. Here's everything you need to know…
How can I watch? The match will kick off at 01:05 BST on Wednesday morning (20:05 EDT on Tuesday local time) and, like all of United's pre-season games, it will be live on MUTV. In the UK and Ireland, the channel is available via Sky, Virgin Media and MUTV.com. Outside the UK and Ireland, it can be viewed on MUTV.com, through the MUTV app on iOS, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Xbox, and on Roku.
Where are we playing? After spending most of our time in the US in Los Angeles, Jose’s men have travelled to Florida for the final game of the tour, which will take place at the Hard Rock Stadium, Miami. The Reds have played there before, in 2014, when goals from Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard ensured we ran out 3-1 victors against Liverpool in the final of the ICC during Louis van Gaal's time as manager.
Have we played Real Madrid before in the ICC? We have met Real twice before in the pre-season tournament, in 2014 and 2017. Four years ago, an Ashley Young brace and a late goal from Javier Hernandez helped United to a 3-1 win. The two sides also locked horns during last summer's tour, as the Reds won 2-1 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in 90 minutes, courtesy of goals from Casemiro and Lingard.
Who else are we playing in pre-season? The Reds will fly home after the Real Madrid game and begin preparations for our final pre-season game, against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Sunday. The Reds last faced the reigning German champions in the 2014 Champions League quarter-finals. Bayern have also competed in the ICC this summer, playing Manchester City, Juventus and Paris Saint Germain.
