Manchester United vs Inter Milan Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A low scoring contest is predicted when Manchester United face Inter Milan in the 2019 International Champions Cup at the National Stadium in Singapore. Both teams have struggled in attack and are tipped to produce an outcome of under 2.5 goals at odds of 2.05. They also appear evenly matched at the moment and should battle to a draw.

Manchester United FC Form & Team News


Manchester United had an eventful campaign last term that ended in disappointment as they failed to secure a trophy and finished outside the European places. Goals were a major problem for the Red Devils towards the end of the season as they scored just twice in their final six matches.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men are priced at 2.05 to win but with their poor form in attack, goals are likely to be scarce. Manchester United finished ninth in the ICC in 2019 after claiming a win, a draw and one defeat from three matches. They will view this year’s edition as a way to gain some momentum heading into the new season.

Manchester United have been involved in the transfer market having recruited Daniel James and Aaron Wan Bissaka. Both men are in contention to play while Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford could feature in attack despite failing to score in the final six matches of the season.

Internazionale Form & Team News


Inter Milan were not at their best during the 2018-19 season as they finished fourth in the Italian Serie A. They also struggled towards the end of the campaign, failing to win in four of their final six matches.

The Nerazurri finished third in the ICC last season as they claimed two wins and a draw from three matches. Antonio Conte is the new man at the helm for the Serie A giants, who will be looking to build some momentum ahead of the new season.

Inter Milan have a number of new signings in their ranks following the acquisition of Diego Godin and Valentino Lazaro. Both men could be given a run out while Ivan Perisic should also feature.
