Atletico Madrid vs Internazionale Preview

Atletico Madrid vs Internazionale

Competition – International Champions Cup 2018

Stadium – Wanda Metropolitano

Date: 11th August 2018

Kick-off time – 20:05 GMT

This game offers both Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid the chance to give their players a run out before the new season begins.

The Spaniards return home for their final and only home pre-season game after rushing some of their World Cup stars back from holiday.

Diego Simeone’s side does not have a lot of time to waste ahead of the new season.

They face Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup next week before a tough opening league fixture against Valencia, so Simeone will be looking to give playing time to as many players as possible to aid their match sharpness.

Inter Milan will also start their league campaign next weekend and they will be using this game to aid their preparation for their first Serie A game against Sassuolo and for the Champions League after they secured a return to Europe’s biggest competition last season.

The Italians have had a good time in this competition so far after drawing with Chelsea and beating Lyon prior to this game.

Luciano Spaletti’s men will be looking for a good end to their pre-season.

Atletico succeeded in not selling Diego Godin this week which gives them the chance to play the same back four that helped them concede less than one goal per game last season, so expect them to field a strong team here.

Bookmakers favour Atletico Madrid in this tie.
