Chelsea will win their final International Champions Cup tie against AC Milan as Leicester lose to Barcelona, says Michael Lintorn...


"AC Milan resisted Liverpool for 58 minutes, with the Reds being forced to call Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino off the bench to transform the game."

Recommended Bet: Back Draw/Chelsea against AC Milan @ [5.2]

Barcelona [1.29] v Leicester [14.0]; The Draw [6.4]

Leicester's teaser of what awaits in the Champions League this season hasn't been quite as pleasant as they might have expected, with their failure to see off Celtic in 90 minutes being followed by the joint-heaviest defeat in International Champions Cup history 4-0 against French counterparts Paris St-Germain.

Barcelona were breached in their first outing in this summer's edition, a 3-1 victory over the Bhoys in Dublin, yet closed 2015/16 with six successive wins to nil - scoring a frankly ridiculous 26 times in the process - and will be confident of reprising that form against the out-of-sort Foxes in Solna.

Recommended Bet: Back Barcelona to win to nil @ [2.2]


Bayern Munich [2.18] v Real Madrid [3.5]; The Draw [3.7]

The combination of Bayern Munich's penalty-shootout failure against AC Milan, Real Madrid's loss to Paris St-Germain and the French champions' perfect performance means that neither of these sides will be taking the trophy back to Europe, but they've had heaps of fun during their stateside stays.

The four matches involving the pair have produced a pulsating 19 goals, with every single one of those contests delivering at least four. Bayern Munich were held 3-3 by the Rossoneri and responded by thrashing Inter 4-1 - striking four times in the opening 35 minutes - and Real Madrid reacted to their 3-1 PSG reverse by beating Chelsea 3-1, doing all their damage by the 37th minute.

Recommended Bet: Back over 3.5 goals @ [2.8]


AC Milan [4.2] v Chelsea [2.0]; The Draw [3.8]
Thursday, 02:00
Live on Chelsea TV

Chelsea will be anticipating three points against AC Milan given that the Liverpool team that they defeated 1-0 at the Rose Bowl went on to overcome the seven-time champions of Europe 2-0 at Levi's Stadium at the weekend, though odds of [2.0] indicate that it isn't going to be straightforward.

The Rossoneri resisted Jurgen Klopp's men for 58 minutes, with the Reds being forced to call Divock Origi and Roberto Firmino off the bench to transform the game. It also took the Blues a while to make their presence felt in their last encounter against Real Madrid, trailing 3-0 at half time before firing twice in the closing 11 minutes through Eden Hazard to create a more respectable scoreline.

Recommended Bet: Back Draw/Chelsea @ [5.2]
