Inter Beat Toothless Bayern In International Champions Cup

Inter Milan comfortably beat a toothless Bayern Munich 2-0 in the International Champions Cup on Thursday afternoon.

International Champions Cup

Teams: Bayern Munich vs Inter Milan

Date: 27 July

Venue: National Stadium, Singapore

Franck Ribery had the first chance of the game but his shot from inside the box was saved by Samir Handanovic.

Eder then opened the scoring for Inter, heading in Antonio Candreva's cross from close range after eight minutes. The Inter striker made it 2-0 with another free header after being set up by Manchester United target Ivan Perisic in the 30th minute.

A few minutes later, things went from bad to worse for Bayern when Ribery had to be carried off the pitch.

The Bundesliga champions dominated most of the play, while Inter were happy to sit back and counter, taking their two-goal lead into the half-time break.

Inter almost made 3-0 after 50 minutes but Joao Mario's cheeky free-kick from a tight angle could only hit the side netting.

The second half was once again disrupted by many changes from both teams, with Bayern's next chance coming from Renato Sanches, but his long-range shot sailed just wide. 

Bayern threatened Inter's goal for the rest of the game, but without really creating any feasible chances.

Inter Milan starting XI: Handanovic; D'Ambrosio, Skriniar, Joao Miranda, Nagatomo; Kondogbia, Valero; Candreva, Joao Mario, Perisic; Eder.

Bayern Munich starting XI: Ulreich; Rafinha, Hummels, Alaba, Gotze; Dorsch, Tolisso; Coman, James, Ribery; Lewandowski.
