Inter Milan were once one of the biggest clubs in Europe but in the past decade, they have fallen down the hierarchy significantly. That being said, last season was a turning point for the club as they managed to secure a spot in the UEFA Champions League and with that in mind, the team looks to build further this season. The Italian giants will want a good preseason to get ready for a big 2018/19 season. The preseason begins for Inter Milan with a game against FC Lugano.
FC Lugano are a side that plays in the Swiss Super League and this will be a great occasion for the team. The Swiss side will play host to this clash and it should be a sell out considering all the fans will come to watch their local heroes take on the superstars from Inter Milan. Winning is not a realistic goal for FC Lugano but I am expecting them to put out a good performance.
As far as Inter Milan are concerned, it is hard to predict what team they will be playing. It is interesting to note that neither new superstar signing Radja Nainggolan or captain Mauro Icardi played in the World Cup so it is very likely that these two names might feature in this game. The likes of Perisic, Brozovic, and Miranda will not be at the game since they all played in the FIFA World Cup and will not be back with the club yet. Expect many of the younger players to get minutes in this match since the manager will need to look at how his squad players are performing considering that Inter Milan are in the Champions League so more players will be needed.
All in all, Inter Milan will win this match and win it with some ease. They are the better side and it will be easy for them to win, even with some of the top players missing. We are not getting a good price to bet on Inter Milan winning so I would avoid the bet. The best bet in the over 2.5 goals which should since I expect Inter Milan to score at least three goals.
