Our tipster thinks that the goals will flow when Maurizio Sarri's side meet Luciano Spalletti's charges in the International Champions Cup on Saturday

Maurizio Sarri saw his new Chelsea side win their opening pre-season friendly fixture against Perth Glory.

The former Napoli manager will face a more familiar foe on Saturday when the Blues go head-to-head with Inter in the International Champions Cup.

Latest odds

Chelsea are chalked up as an 13/10 (2.30) chance with bet365 to come out on top in Nice, while the odds compilers offer 5/2 (3.50) that the match remains level at the end of 90 minutes.

Luciano Spalletti's side were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United on Tuesday night but they can be backed at 2/1 (3.0) to get the better of the Blues by winning this one.

Team news

Chelsea lined up in a 4-3-3 formation against Perth Glory and Sarri's side could keep the same shape here.

Eden Hazard, N'Golo Kante, Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi, Gary Cahill, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Thibaut Courtois will all miss out after enjoying an extended run at the World Cup for their respective nations.

Radja Nainggolan, Stefan de Vrij and Lautaro Martinez are amongst the new faces that could feature for Inter. Dalbert Henrique is definitely out, though, after sustaining a serious shoulder injury against Sheffield United.

Goals galore?

There have been at least three goals scored in each of Chelsea's last four International Champions Cup fixtures and, given the attack-minded style that the Blues are expected to adopt under Sarri's stewardship, that trend could continue here.

The 8/11 (1.73) quote, therefore, for more than two goals to be scored looks to be a solid selection, while the same firm go 8/13 (1.62) that there are goals at both ends.

Prediction

Inter have won each of their last four matches at the International Champions Cup, including a 2-1 win against the Blues last time out.

Spalletti's side will be determined to extend their winning run in the competition and fans could be treated to an open and exciting encounter.

The 8/11 (1.73) quote, then, for more than two goals to be scored could offer punters best value ahead of Saturday's showdown.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
