Wealthy French outfit Paris St. Germain take on wealthy west Londoners Chelsea on Sunday evening in New York. The Parisian giants' £150 million spending spree has even raised the bushy eyebrows of Chelsea manager, Roberto Di Matteo.
The match will take place at the New Yankee Stadium in the Bronx area of New York; although it has since been announced that record-signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic will not make his debut for Paris Saint-Germain. Meanwhile, Chelsea defender Gary Cahill insists John Terry's recent court case will not affect his performances. Chelsea have also splashed out this summer scooping Eden Hazard, a Belgian wonder kid who has already netted in Chelsea's 4-2 win over Seattle Sounders in Canada on Wednesday. Many will predict a tight encounter when these two sides clash in New York with few goals and a score draw, the most likely outcome.
Liverpool and Tottenham in North America
Stuart Pearce may have left out David Beckham for Team GB's Olympic squad but he recently bagged two goals in Los Angeles and on Monday night (July 24) his LA Galaxy side face Tottenham in a friendly. Liverpool is also on the same North America tour circuit as they warm up for the season ahead. New manager Brendan Rodgers' Reds will face Tottenham in Baltimore on July 28. The clash is expected to be a test for the two sleeping giants and their brand new coaching personnel. It is expected that Villas-Boas' new signings could shine through and edge this game against a slowly-rebuilding unit at Liverpool; 2-1 to Tottenham would be a more likely prediction.
