Both Chelsea and Inter Milan are looking to present themselves in the best possible way in this year’s International Champions Cup. Also, the two sides are experimenting and putting all the pieces together as they have many new arrivals. This primarily refers to Inter Milan who had many changes during this transfer window. On the other hand, Chelsea also had some major landings, but it hasn’t been that frequent like at Giuseppe Meazza.
There is one interesting thing before these game, and that is a fact that the two management and negotiating about Antonio Candreva. Chelsea is interested in Nerazzurri’s midfielder.
As you all know and as we previously said, Inter Milan will play their games in Asia because the new owners are from China and they’re trying to make a breakthrough on that market.
Antonio Conte’s boys played a very disappointing match against Bayern Munich in which they have lost 2-3. The Blues were inferior, especially in the first half when the German team scored all three goals. They managed to improve the overall impression with an initiative in the second part of the second half, but that wasn’t enough to win.
However, things are going to be different in this game because the most expensive player in this transfer window Alvaro Morata will probably start from the first minute. That also refers to Antonio Rudiger who has arrived in Singapore and who is believed that will start along with David Luiz. We deeply believe that Chelsea will perform much better in this game than during the previous one.
Inter Milan overview
Many experts and fans had an opinion that Luciano Spalletti’s arrival will produce high-efficient games for Inter Milan. We haven’t seen any of them so far. In the last three games against stronger opponents, we saw five goals in total. A draw against Schalke 1-1, and a close victories against Olympique Lyon 1-0, and Bayern 2-0. It seems that the Italian coach is still trying to find an ideal starting lineup and at Inter still hasn’t found its game. The transfer window is not over, and we expect more changes in the team. The main characteristic of this squad is a strong midfield who is defensive minded. In the last two games Inter hasn’t allowed a goal.
Head to head matches
The two clubs have met only twice in history. It was in the Champions League knockout stage in 2010 when the Italian side had won this competition. Nerrazurri were victorious in both games. In London, they won 0-1, while the outcome in Milan was 2-1.
With much stronger squad than in the previous game, we think that Chelsea is an absolute favorite here. Antonio Conte and the boys will for sure react after a disappointing game against Bayern. Meanwhile, Inter Milan hasn’t developed a proper play. Despit winning against Bayern , they are still struggling, and all the previous results came as a consequence of individual quality. We think that this is not going to be enough against a team like Chelsea.
One other suggestion for you is to play Chelsea over 1.5 goals.
