Bein Sports; Sky Sports; Premier Sports; Fox Sports
More action from the International Champions Cup with Benfica taking on Fiorentina at Rentschler Field. Benfica lost out to PSG in a pulsating encounter with the game finishing 3-2, Benfica came from behind to lead 2-1 before losing out to a late Digne goal. Benfica have a quality attacking side with Gaitan, Talisca , John and Jonas all attracting attention from the biggest clubs in Europe. This is a good match up for Benfica as well with Fiorentina more of an attacking side than defensive and Benfica should be allowed to play their attractive passing football.
Fiorentina struggled against PSG but when star man Guiseppi Rossi took the field they looked amore dangerous side immediately, he scored six minutes later and he really is a quality attacker. Fiorentina have some real quality up front and with Gomez and Rossi finally getting a chance to form a partnership La Viola should get to see the best of both in the coming months. Fiorentina were sore at missing out on Mohamad Salah and it looks like the Chelsea midfielder will be back in Serie A but at Roma, he had an immediate impact at Fiorentina last January on loan and it is a pity he couldnt agree terms to see how his wing play would have complimented Rossi.
Taking both teams to score here, both play a really attractive brand of football and I think that we will see goals here. In both teams cases they have been poor defensively in their ICC games thus far and I think that we should get a highscoring open game.
