MLS All-Stars vs. Manchester United Free Prediction & Pick
For the second straight year, the MLS All-Stars will take on the English powerhouse Manchester United. The match is set to take place on July 27th, and will be played in Harrison, New Jersey; home of the New York Red Bulls. Manchester United came over for this same match-up last year (with the MLS featuring a few different players), and ran all over the MLS All-Stars in a 5-2 victory in Houston. Manchester United has multiple matches in order to get them prepared for the start of their season, including one against FC Barcelona just three days later, on July 30th at FedEx field in Landover, Maryland. Manchester United finished last season at the top of the Premier League with an impressive 80 points, with the second closes teams being Chelsea and Manchester City with 71 points respectively.
While last year featured the big time win for Manchester United, the MLS All-Stars have some big names on their team this year. They are hoping that the strong play of players like David Beckham, Landon Donovan, and Thierry Henry will be able to make a difference. The MLS All-Stars also have young up and comers like Tim Ream, Rafa Marquez, and Omar Gonzalez in the back, with Chris Wondolowski up front with Henry and Donovan. The MLS squad definitely has some strong weapons this year, but it may be tough for them to match up with the overpowering Manchester United.
It will be interesting to see how the MLS All-Star attempt to contain names like Dimitar Berbatov, Wayne Rooney, and Javier Hernandez; all of whom possess an incredible knack for the goal.

Although the MLS All-Stars have some added firepower this year, it will still be tough to lock down the powerful offense of Manchester United. Manchester United is widely considered to be one of the best teams in the league, and while I think this game will be much closer than last year; I don't see the MLS All-Stars pulling off the upset.

The odds on this won't blow you away, but they will get you some money back on your investment. Manchester United features talent that is incredible, and speed that will put a lot of pressure on the MLS All-Star's back line. Take Manchester United at -222, and just because I see a 3-2 score, doesn't mean it'll be that close throughout. I see Man-U jumping out all over the MLS All-Stars, forcing them to re-adjust their gameplan. I'm picking Manchester United.
