Inter v Lyon – Monday 10:05pm AEST

This is our first look at both clubs at the ICC but they have played several friendlies elsewhere in the lead up. The Wolf is predicting a tough season ahead for both sides due to a combination of losing key talent and their rivals strengthening their respective squads.

Juventus and AC Milan have been very active but Inter seem to have been sitting on their hands. The biggest change has been the arrival of manager Luciano Spalletti from Roma. With a new manager one can only expect a number of changes to follow. Jovetic has been recalled from a loan spell with Sevilla but they have lost the services of silky midfielder Ever Banega. Winger Ivan Perisic has been targeted by Man Utd and we could see some sort of swap deal with Inter rumoured to be interested in Martial.

For Lyon it has been a case of cashing in when you can. Arguably their two best players, Lacazette and Tolisso, have gone to Arsenal and Bayern Munich respectively and they will not be replacing them with the equivalent talent. With Gonalons and the experienced Valbuena also gone they are looking at almost an entirely new midfield.

Despite the departures the French side have looked very effective in attack in friendly wins over Celtics and Ajax. They have a very young squad and The Wolf is expecting to see them play a very open and attacking brand of football focused around pressure and counter attack. Inter on the other hand struggled against both Nurnberg and Schalke. The Wolf believes those struggles will continue and the price on offer for Lyon is too good to refuse. Inter were beaten handily by PSG and Bayern in this competitions last year and have lost 4 of their last 5 ICC matches. There will be goals and they will be coming from the French side!

Best Bet: Over 3.5 goals ($2.35)
Value: Lyon WIN ($2.80)
