Venue: U.S. Bank Stadium (Minneapolis).
AC Milan and Chelsea meet each other at the US Bank Stadium on Wednesday for their final match of the International Champions Cup 2016 edition.
Both teams have a win and a draw from the two matches they played so far in the tournament. PSG are currently leading the table after winning in all of their three matches. Barcelona are the only team that can overtake French Champions. For that they win their remaining two matches with a healthy goal margin.
Chelsea won their first match in the competition 1-0 against Liverpool, courtesy of a 10th minute goal by Gary Cahill. But Real Madrid brought them down to earth firing past 3 goals inside the first 45 minutes. However an improved second half performance lowered the deficit, but Madrid took all three points as the matches finished at 3-2.

AC Milan vs Chelsea: Prediction
Each of these two sides are coming on the back of a defeat and will be eager to bounce back with a win. The new league season is fast approaching and as a reason the coaches are expected to focus on fitness over performance. So the players are unlikely to give their all like in competitive matches.
Chelsea will go in an slight favourites to win this game and I belive goals will remain on the lower side.
Under 2.5 goals
Chelsea to win
