The International Champions Cup comes in live from New Jersey on Tuesday night as PSG take on Fiorentina in what should be another interesting game between two attack minded sides. Fiorentina finally get Guiseppi Rossi back on the field and the Italian international scored one in a recent friendly against Capri. Rossi is the integral part of Fiorentina's team and the side struggled for goals last season without him. Mario Gomez and Babacar only managed eleven goals between them last season and they simply must get more from their strikers if they are to compete in Serie A. This is a decent team though and they will compete with the big sides if Rossi can stay fit.
PSG will finally have a full squad for this game but there is a chance that their South American players will still not get game time as they arrived back to duty late following international duty. Ibrahimovich and Cavani are also unlikely to play a full game here although the former could be involved and probably will start. Laurent Blanc has a galaxy of star in his squad but with Pastore, Lavezzi, Silva, Luiz and Cavani all lkely to be on the bench and not involved this is a side that will get it difficult to beat a really solid Fiorentina team in my opinion.
I'm taking both teams to score here, I think both are likely to make ten or eleven changes at half time and with the lack of continuity comes mistakes. We have seen in the ICC already that teams are more attack minded and in general we get goals , I see both sides scoring here in what should be a good match up and an enjoyable game to watch.
