The Line: -- Over/Under:
Juventus and Inter Milan are set to play each other in the 2019 International Champions Cup.
Juventus began their preseason on Sunday in a match where they were defeated 3-2 by Tottenham. It was an extremely close match where Juventus conceded in injury time to concede the game. During the match, Juventus controlled 54% of the possession and completed 625 passes. The passing was outstanding by Juventus as they had a pass accuracy of 90%. Juventus took 12 shots with 5 shots being on target. Gonzalo Higuain and Cristiano Ronaldo both scored for Juventus. Despite the result, Juventus looked in good form and they will be hoping they can win this fixture.
Looking at Inter Milan, the team was beaten in their previous match by Manchester United. It was a 1-0 defeat for Inter Milan but the manner of the defeat was poor. Inter Milan only managed to control 39% of the possession and they allowed Manchester United to take 21 shots. If Manchester United were more clinical, the defeat could easily have been by 4 or 5 goals. The Inter Milan forwards were very poor during the game as they only had 1 shot on target in the 90 minutes. The Inter Milan goalkeeper, Samir Handanović, was the only player who had a good match as he made 7 saves and only conceded in the 73rd minute. This is expected to be a tougher match for Inter Milan since Juventus look a much stronger team when compared to Manchester United.
This match between Inter Milan and Juventus is set to take place at the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center Gymnasium in China.
Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Juventus to win this match. Inter Milan looked poor in their previous match and the team looks incomplete with the team still looking to make some signings. Juventus look in good shape and the team played well against Tottenham. I see Juventus being too strong for Inter Milan in this fixture.
