Jose Mourinho battles his former employers for the International Champions Cup trophy in the United States of America

The Guinness International Champions Cup will draw to a close at the Sun Life Stadium, Miami as two European heavyweight contest for the trophy. One interesting thing about this encounter will be Jose Mourinho’s face-off with his former team.

Despite leaving in an unceremonious way, the ‘Happy One’ still had a fair share of success with Real Madrid leading them to win some trophies. He will be no stranger to his opponent as Carlo Ancelotti will be fielding almost all the players he inherited from the outspoken Portuguese.

Ladbrokes is pricing Ancelotti’s side as favorites at evens (2.00).

For the Roman Army, they are massive underdogs in this encounter not minding their breath-taking form in previous games. They are available at 9/4 (3.25)to stun the Spanish club to win the ICC trophy.

The draw is a 12/5 (3.50) play.

Exactly like Mourinho, coach Ancelotti will also be facing his former team, he coached them between 2009 to 2011. Real remain unbeaten in the pre-season but have only kept one clean sheet in four matches. Going by this, it will be difficult for punters to ignore the clean slate market as Madrid is backed not to let in any goal within 90minutes. This can be offered at 23/10 (3.30).

The Roman Army has won all five of its pre-season games finding the back of the net 17 times and letting in two goals. With the array of talents they parade in the attack, scoring goals may likely not prove a problem and to justify this, they are odds on to win either half at 11/10 (2.10).

Cristiano Ronaldo tops the goalscorer market with 7/2 (4.5) on ground for him to net the opener while his team Karim Benzema is a 9/2 (5.5) shot with Ladbrokes to net first.

Should Chelsea eventually get to score, it will likely come off the boots of Senegalese forward, Demba Ba who is available at 6/1 (7.00) to light up the Sun Life Stadium with goals , same odds he shares with Fernando Torres, Alavaro Morata, Jese and Romelu Lukaku.

This match promises to be explosive as punters are expected to get a value for their bet.
