The English club, with Mata once again in the starting XI, lost 0-2 against PSG in Chicago. Juan featured for 80 minutes in a match that the French side swiftly unbalanced.
Manchester United were unable to end their participation in the International Champions Cup with a good result. Van Gaal’s men, with Juan Mata in the starting line-up, succumbed against PSG (0-2) at Chicago’s Soldier Field. Matuidi and Ibrahimovic, both in the first half, sealed the Red Devils’ only defeat of their pre-season.
United once again generated constant danger with their attacking players, but this time they lacked precision in the final third. One of the most spectacular moves of the game came from the boots of Blind and Mata. The ball ended up in the back of the French side’s net after a long pass from the Dutchman and exquisite control and an efficient resolution from Juan. However, the move was ruled out for offside. Shortly afterwards, Matuidi made it 0-1 and set PSG’s victory in motion.
In the 80th minute, Mata left his position to Jesse Lingard. The American tour is finished, with a balance of three wins and just one defeat, and it’s now time to focus on the start of the Premier League, against Tottenham on August 8. A few days later, they will face the Champions League qualifiers. What’s important begins.
