Manchester City Kicks off Asian Tour Against Yokohama F Marinos: An Early Test for the Champions

Key Stats
– Yokohama F Marinos have averaged two goals per game in recent fixtures.
– Manchester City recorded an impressive average BettingTips4You rating of 7.07 in the 22/23 Premier League.
– Anderson Lopes has scored 26 goals in his last 50 matches for Yokohama F Marinos.

As Manchester City prepares to return to action following their celebrated triumph in the last Champions League, they get set to face Yokohama F Marinos in their opening pre-season fixture this Sunday in Tokyo. Coming off a remarkable treble-winning season, the European champions are poised to hit the ground running, preparing for the 2023-24 campaign against a fellow City Group club. The imminent curtain-raiser at Wembley against Premier League runners-up Arsenal is just two weeks away.

Manchester City’s Brief Asian Tour

Pep Guardiola’s troupe will embark on a brief Asian expedition, visiting South Korea and Japan, as part of their pre-season agenda. Besides Yokohama F Marinos, they are also slated to square off against Bayern Munich at Tokyo’s National Stadium, followed by a meeting with Atletico Madrid in Seoul on July 30.

Their pre-season tour concludes with a potentially challenging encounter against a revitalised Arsenal squad on August 6, setting the stage for their Premier League opener against Vincent Kompany’s Burnley. Guardiola’s intentions are clear – to prime his efficient squad for another triumphant run, matching their scintillating performance in the previous season.

The Manchester City stars convened for pre-season training merely a week ago, making their fluency in upcoming matches a topic of speculation.

Yokohama F Marinos – A Rising Power

Manchester City’s initial pre-season adversaries, Yokohama F Marinos, have flourished since joining the City Group nine years ago. Their accolades include breaking a 15-year J1 League title drought in 2019 under new Tottenham coach Ange Postecoglou and clinching the championship again the following year.

Marinos, part of a 13-club ownership group that spans five continents, have the longest top-flight run in Japanese football since 1982. Currently sitting second in the J1 League table after 21 matches, they are level on points with Vissel Kobe. Despite their recent Emperor’s Cup exit and a last-minute defeat to Kawasaki Frontale, their stellar performance against Scottish champions Celtic in a friendly speaks volumes about their potential.

Squad Updates

Guardiola’s selection options include the recently returned Joao Cancelo and new signing Mateo Kovacic. However, Riyad Mahrez is set to miss the match due to his imminent transfer to Al-Ahli, while Kevin De Bruyne is still nursing a hamstring injury from the Champions League final. With captain Ilkay Gundogan transferring to Barcelona, young talents Maximo Perrone, Cole Palmer, and James McAtee could find an opportunity to prove their worth.

On the other hand, Yokohama F Marinos will likely alter their lineup that achieved a remarkable 6-4 victory against Celtic. Ryo Miyaichi will be hoping his double against the Scottish team propels him to the starting XI. Kevin Muscat, the team’s coach, is expected to rely on the Brazilian duo of ex-Cruzeiro winger Elber and Anderson Lopes, who has netted 26 goals in 50 matches since his return from China, to lead his attacking front.


1. Match Outcome

While it’s too early for Manchester City to display their previous season’s fluidity, their depth of talent and offensive prowess are likely to challenge Yokohama F Marinos. In the under/over market, it’s reasonable to expect over 2.5 goals given City’s goal-scoring capability and Marinos’ recent high-scoring games.

2. Correct Score Prediction

Considering Yokohama F Marinos’ offensive prowess, evidenced by their recent 6-4 win over Celtic, they are likely to score. However, Manchester City’s quality could overpower Marinos, leading to a probable 3-1 victory for the English side.

3. Goalscorer Prediction

Anderson Lopes, who has an impressive record of 26 goals in 50 matches for Yokohama F Marinos, is a likely candidate to score in this match.
