Liverpool vs Manchester City
The 2019 Liverpool vs Manchester City FA Community Shield is finally here…and so is Liverpool’s chance to settle the score after a heartbreaking Premiership loss last season. It won’t be easy though as Man City are a side that rises to the occasion. With both teams slightly ring rusty this contest could go either way and for that reason, The Reds look like a value betting proposition at far more generous odds.
Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich
Dortmund withered towards the end of their Bundesliga campaign and will be seeking to set the record straight here. That’s unlikely to happen though as Bayern has had a vice-like grip on the DFL Supercup, having won it for the last six consecutive years. There’s little reason to believe they won’t continue this trend and are tipped confidently to be the ones lifting the trophy yet again.
Benfica vs Sporting Lisbon
While Benfica has a clear edge on recent form, the head to head stats for these two teams tell a different story, with few goals and a slew of draws. Taking that into account, the draw seems to be the logical, albeit tentative selection, despite the vast majority of pundits selecting the home side.
PSG vs Stade Rennais
A proverbial David versus Goliath encounter as journeymen Stade Rennais travel to face the mighty champions of last season PSG. Unlike the historic biblical battle though , this match is unlikely to provide any surprises. The hosts have a clear advantage and shouldn’t be troubled in the slightest on their way to a comfortable victory.
