The International Champions Cup may only be a trumped up pre-season friendly football tournament. But when two clubs with the history and magnitude of Manchester United and Real Madrid come together on the pitch in any context, it's going to be worth a look. And we'll tell you how to live stream it from absolutely anywhere.
The 2018/2019 season is going to be an interesting year for both of these sides. If Jose Mourinho is to be considered a success at Manchester United, they're going to need to give their cross-town rivals a proper challenge for the Premier League this season, and a Champions League run wouldn't go a miss either. Real Madrid won that tournament (again!) last season, but have the challenge of integrating new manager Julen Lopetegui into the mix, and coping with a new Cristiano Ronaldo-less era.
After squeezing a penalty win against Italian giants AC Milan, Man U got battered in their last game against Liverpool 4-1. Whereas this is Madrid's first game of the tournament.
