As we gear towards the start of the 2019/2020, the 2018/2019 season Premier League winners; Manchester City will Play against runners-up and Championships League winners; Liverpool in the Community Shield Cup. This match will be played on Sunday 4th August 2019 at the famous Wembley Stadium. The match is scheduled to start at 17:00GMT.
After a series of pre-season friendlies, Liverpool returns to England to face their Premier League counterparts in what is expected to be a cutthroat match. Liverpool managed to finish second in the 2018/2019 season with 97 points just 1 point behind the winners. However, they did well to win the coveted Champions League Cup. This match presents them an opportunity to test the waters as they prep for the 2019/2020 season and show their superiority in England and Europe at large.
Manchester City on the other hand had a successful 2018/2019 season winning with 98 points. They come into the match after a series of successful international friendlies which saw them scoring many goals as usual. In their last all six matches, Man City has won 5 and drawn 1. Their scoring prowess seems to be still on course as they set out for the community shield and the 2019/2020 season. Whether they will humble the Champions is something to be seen.
Both teams have all it takes to win the match. However, if their previous head to head matches are something to go by, Liverpool has won most of their recent matches. Nevertheless, Man City will not give them a humble time. This match will be the most enticing one as it sets the mood for the upcoming season. All in all, we believe Liverpool will carry the day with a narrow score.
