Soccer | Lyon vs Inter Milan
John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Inter Milan have made huge signings this season and there are expectations that the Italian side will make more before the end of the transfer window. This historic club will be back in the UEFA Champions League this season and there are huge expectations and hopes on the club. Inter Milan will continue their preparation this weekend as they play a friendly game against French club, Lyon.

Lyon recently played a preseason friendly against Portuguese side, FC Benfica, which they won. That game was filled with goals and showed the attacking talent that Lyon have. Traore was especially good as the striker managed to find the back on the net. This will be a bigger challenge for Lyon as Inter Milan are a better side and will test the team more. It will be interesting to see if Lyon can perform at a higher level against Inter Milan.

Inter Milan, on the other hand, will look to get a win to build the team's confidence. The likes of Icardi, Nainggolan, and Candreva are all back at the club after not going to the FIFA World Cup. This should mean that the Italian side will be filled with their star players for this game. Serie A doesn’t start for a while and Inter Milan will want to ensure that the top players are fit and have game time under their belt so this game will be important.

I think that Inter Milan will win this game. The Italian side is filled with better players and I think they will be good enough to beat Lyon. I am also expecting this to be a high scoring event. Both teams are great going forward while they struggle to defend so I think many goals will be put in the back of the net. We are getting a good price to wager on the over 2.5 goals and on Inter Milan to win so those are the two bets which I am going to suggest.

 

Pick:
Inter Milan
