Quakes v Manchester United

In a friendly played at Levi’s Stadium, the Quakes and Manchester United were held to a scoreless draw.    In their second meeting since their game at Avaya Stadium on July 2015, this match was merely a tuneup for the upcoming Premiership season for United while the Quakes were playing in between breaks in their league calendar.  Many of the United stars except for Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial made the trip and played at least one half, while the Quakes were rotating between their starters and reserves as well.

The Quakes return to league play on July 25 hosting Seattle at Avaya Stadium followed by another home match against Real Salt Lake on July 28.  Manchester United are in the middle of their USA tour–having traveled in 2015, 2017, and this year.  Having played in Phoenix against Club America and in the Bay Area against the Quakes, the fabled Red Devils travel to LA to play AC Milan at the Stubhub Center in Carson on July 25, to Ann Arbor to play Liverpool on July 28, and to Miami against Real Madrid on July 31.
