Inter drew 1-1 with Chelsea on Saturday in their International Champions Cup pre-season tournament before losing the penalty shootout.
One of Inter’s faults last season was their slow start to the game and that trait was once again on show in Nice as the Premier League side dominated the first half.
It took only eight minutes for Chelsea to rip Inter apart as Pedro finished ff a good move, that saw Alvaro Morata boss the Inter defender.
Chelsea looked comfortable on the ball and dominated possession for the majority of the first forty-five minutes, heading into the break with a deserving lead.
However, Tiemoue Bakayoko who came on at the half-time break gave the ball away too easily in midfield and further allowed Mauro Icardi to lay the ball out for Roberto Gagliardini who found the back of the net owing to Willy Caballero’s inability to get behind the ball and stop the shot.
Inter kicked-on from their early second-half goal and continued to pressurize Chelsea deep into the second half but the Blues held on for a 1-1 draw at the end of ninety minutes. Milan Skriniar became the unlucky man who had to miss his spot-kick in the penalty shootout as Chelsea held their nerve to convert all their chances from 12 yards out to emerge as 5-4 victors in the end.
