De Bruyne helps Man City trounce Real Madrid in pre-saeson game

Manchester City trashed Real Madrid in a game that was championed by Man City's Kevin De Bruyne

He led his team to a resounding 4-1 win over Real Madrid at the International Champions Cup.

New signing Danilo started at left back against his former club but it took until the second half for City and De Bruyne to start an amazing show.

De Bruyne contributed in City's first three goals with his corner eventually leading to Nicolas Otamendi's opener before he set up Raheem Sterling and John Stones.
The game was finally put to bed by teenage boy Brahim Diaz, who scored a brilliant late goal, Madrid's Oscar got the consolation with a fine finish.

Barcelona 1 vs Manchester United 0: Neymar inspires barca

In the Manchester United vs Barcelona game, Brazil star Neymar Jr showed why he is being courted with a world-record offer from Paris Saint-Germain after inspiring Barcelona to a 1-0 win over Manchester United this morning.

Paul Pogba forced a saved from jasper Cillessen with a sublime turn and shot to test the goal keeper from the edge of the area, Marcos Rashford also dashed into the area and attempted to curl the ball into the far corner but the Barca keeper was able to get that covered.

From then it was a one team game as barcelona ran riot at the red devils, forcing De Gea to deny Neymar from close range but the United shot-stopper was helpless to stop the Brazilian international in the 31st minute.
Antonio Valencia cut out a pass from Messi but he was dispossessed by Neymar, who composed himself as he turned and shot beyond De Gea.

Barca's should have gone two goals up by half-time if not for De Gea after the Spainish international saved an acrobatic strike from Luis Suarez three minutes before the break.

Paris Saint-Germain 2 Juventus 3:
Marchisio scores second-half brace

Two goals from Claudio Marchisio helped Juventus to a 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

Gonzalo Higuain produced a classy finish in the 45th minute to give the Serie A champions the lead in Miami, Florida.

Goncalo Guedes got the equalizer after he was set up by the impressive Angel Di Maria made PSG level early in the second half.
In the 62nd minute Marchisio scored superbly from 20 yards but Javier Pastore levelled once more for the French side.

However, it was Marchisio again as Juventus would not be denied a third time when he converted from the penalty spot in the 89th minute for the match-winner.
