Chelsea make it a date with Inter Milan for their first clash in this summer’s International Champions Cup on Friday at the Allianz Riviera.
Maurizio Sarri’s charges got their pre-season underway last week with a 1-0 victory over Perth Glory. The Blues will be expected to build on that confidence ahead of their subsequent build-up matches against Arsenal and Olympique Lyonnais.
With this being the Nerazzurri’s fifth fixture of the summer, they’ve so far defeated Lugano 3-0, lost to 2-0 to Sion, which was followed by draws with Zenit St Petersburg and Sheffield United, 3-3 and 1-1 respectively. Thus, the bookies price them at (2.50) as slight favourites in this encounter.
A no winner, no vanquished state at the end of 90 minutes of intense action is chalked up at a juicy (3.50) with the same betting firm.
One of the three duels between both sides has seen them score each other. Taking into account, therefore, that these sides boast of talented attacking qualities should make the repeat of a similar result possible here in Nice.
