Sky Sports; ESPN; Fox Sports
The last game in the Chinese legs of the International Champions Cup will see Real Madrid take on Milan at the Shanghai Stadium. Real Madrid have put in impressive back to back wins against Manchester City and Inter Milan scoring seven goals and conceding just one. Cristiano Ronaldo, Bale, Modric, Jese, Isco and Rodriguez all featured prominently in those two games with Ronaldo of course key to most of the good and Rafa Benitez is finding his feet as Real Madrid boss. It looks likely now that Madrid are not done spending though as they line up a move for Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea. Madrid are looking to take back their Premiera League crown and European Championship from Barcelona and to do so they will need some more recruits in my opinion.
Milan went and got themselves a manager who knows how to defend, they then went and spent most of their transfer money on attacking players. Surely this combination will lead to some success right? Well Mihajlovich seen his center back Philip Mexes score a terrific scissor kick that beat Inter Milan last week and overall his side have looked solid defensively. Milan brought in some terrific attacking talent with Luiz Adriano, Bacca coming in and they look like difference makers straight from the off. Milan are rebuilding but when you add what was bought to Menez , Honda and the already there Niang there is talent in this side and they should be looking to get back into the top three this season and Champions League football next year, at least this is what I believe the target for the season is.
Hard to see anything but a Real Madrid win here though. Going to take the Galacticos to get the win and be leading by halftime. A halftime/fulltime bet is evens and that looks the shout here for me.
