Man City vs Atletico Madrid LIVE: Date, UK kick-off time, team news and how to follow
Manchester City end their Asia tour with a mammoth pre-season clash against Spanish giants Atletico Madrid.
The Citizens have won both of their warm-up games ahead of the 2023/24 Premier League campaign and face Arsenal in the Community Shield next weekend.
City won the treble last year and will look to go one step further this time around.
And after facing Bayern Munich, the tough games continue as Pep Guardiola faces off against a manager who could be described as the antithesis of the ex-Barcelona boss.
Diego Simeone’s teams are renowned for their resolute defending and mastery of the dark arts, while Guardiola’s sides look to control and dictate things.
It should be a fascinating contest between two top managers and contrasting styles.
