Manchester United

A trip to Edinburgh awaits for Manchester United on Wednesday for their second pre-season friendly of the summer, as French giants Lyon tackle their English counterparts at Murrayfield Stadium. Both teams kicked off the exhibition period with opening wins, as the Red Devils put two unanswered goals past Leeds United while Les Gones edged past Dutch outfit De Treffers. The stage was set for Erik ten Hag’s young protégés to make a statement in Oslo as Man United and Leeds travelled to Scandinavia for their opening preseason friendly. After a first half that saw no goals, Ten Hag made a number of changes which finally opened the floodgates in the second half. This match also saw Mason Mount making his non-competitive debut. Erik Ten Hag is also going to be reunited with his former Ajax number one as United have just completed the signing of Inter Milan goalkeeper, Andre Onana.


Lyon once again failed in their attempts to qualify for continental competition, finishing in seventh place despite a largely encouraging run of form after the turn of the year and the unexpected Alexandre Lacazette hot streak, which saw the ex-Arsenal player net 27 goals in Ligue 1, just two behind Golden Boot winner Kylian Mbappe. During a brief stopover in the Netherlands, Lyon dropped down the divisions to meet amateur outfit De Treffers. After Tino Kadewere initially tied the score after cancelling out Coen Maertzdorf’s opening, Blanc’s team needed a late Jeff Reine-Adelaide penalty to win 2-1. The friendly run-in does not get any kinder to Blanc, whose side also take on Molenbeek, Celta Vigo and Crystal Palace after the Frenchman’s homecoming with Man United.
