PSG and Inter Milan Square off on American SoilPublished July 24, 2016 by Florin P
PSG goes for 10th straight win against struggling Inter Milan (10:00 p.m UK Time).
PSG has lost its brightest star after Zlatan Ibrahimovic decided to leave the French club and join Manchester United. This is not expected to jeopardize their chances of winning another trophy in the domestic championship. They still have the best team, but the challenge is to replicate the performance in the Champions League. A match against Inter Milan in the International Champions Cup is a perfect test.
A Battle-Tested Manager at the Helm
PSG had no problems in defeating fellow French teams over the last couple of years and won the championship by a landslide. Their inability to win the Champions League was sometimes blamed on the lack of quality coaching. Now that Unai Emery has joined them, they have all the arguments in favor of making a successful run in Europe.
The Spanish manager has won the Europa League more than any other coach and turned Sevilla into a force to be reckoned with. He always had to make the most with limited resources and that’s why he never got the chance to challenge Barcelona and Real Madrid. At the helm of PSG, he can put his intelligence and experience to good use and play the offensive football he likes so much.
A Real Challenge for Inter Milan
PSG has scored an average of three goals per match since Unai Emery took over and is undefeated in the last 10 games. The team doesn’t settle for narrow margin victories and always pushes for comfortable wins, a scenario we expect to see repeated on Sunday.
This is the first ICC match for both inter Milan and PSG and both teams want to start the campaign with a victory. Offensive football favors PSG and if the Italians don’t barricade themselves in their own half, this match has the potential of turning into a goal scoring festival. Bet365 sports offers odds of 9/10 on PSG to win, but they’re expected to drop by kickoff.
