The excitement continues at the 2019 International Champions Cup. On Saturday evening, July 20, Benfica will face Guadalajara.
Benfica managed to lift the championship trophy by dominating the Portuguese Premier League last season, leaving behind a highly productive season, finishing 3rd place in the Champions League Group and participating in the UEFA Europa League. The European stage, the quarter-final tour farewell to the host, both in the league exhibit football and the European scene with the success of the giant clubs entered the radar. Raúl Jiménez and João Félix won 164 million euros. Benfica doesn’t seem to lose power, even though the star players left the team.
Mexico representative Guadalajara, the most important exams of the season will give the International Champions Cup. The guest team, who finished the league in the 14th place last season, was extremely inadequate and ended the season in the lower ranks. I think Jose Cardozo and his team, who will compete with the giant clubs, are the weakest link in this tournament. It is extremely difficult to score points against major competitors.
Although Benfica loses a 2-star footballer, this week, with a strong squad structure, is a favorite side of the win. I think the host will win comfortably against his weak opponent.
