The 2016 International Champions Cup continues the final stretch of its U.S.A./Europe leg, we already saw Real Madrid take down Bayern Munich and AC Milan fall to Chelsea FC and this weekend brings us more action! Live from London, Liverpool and Barcelona, two of the most famous and successful clubs in soccer, will be going toe-to-toe.
While Liverpool is a bit off the top of the Cup standings, Barcelona is in second behind current leader Paris Saint-Germain and could make up some much needed ground with a victory over the Kopites and their squad on the pitch. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Co. dispatched of Leicester City in a somewhat one-sided 4-2 match earlier in the tourney. EPL backers surely are hoping for Liverpool to fare better to save the League a bit of face against what’s been a dominant run by Barca thus far.
The ICC kicked off in China on July 22, and during the tournament leg’s one-week stint, Borussia Dortmund took the top spot in the standings over Manchester United and Manchester City FC. Their win was cemented in the very first match, which they won by a score of 4-1 over Manchester United.
Australia’s leg featured four squads – Melbourne Victory FC, Juventus FC, Tottenham Hotspur F.C. and Atletico De Madrid. Juventus took the top spot in the standings with 4 points. Atletico De Madrid came in second with 3.
