Meet Inter Milan
Inter Milan is a marquee brand of excellence that is one of the most successful and best renowned clubs in Italy. Their mark of superiority begins with a total of 18 Serie A championships and includes a total of three European championships. Interestingly enough Inter Milan shares its home pitch with arch rival AC Milan. When you couple that with the historic excellence of this squad you end up with one of the most passionate fan bases in the sport.
Since the English Premier League reformed in 1992 Chelsea has been one of its biggest brands and most successful franchises. Chelsea has won the EPL five times since the EPL reformation. Much credit for the modern success of the Blues must go to Russian billionaire owner Roman Abramovich, who purchased the team in 2003. Since his arrival the expectations, results, and the name brand itself were permanently transformed. Chelsea has won the UEFA Champions League and the Europa League within the past six years.
Inter Milan Style and Tactics
To its credit Inter Milan has one of the most unique tactical looks of any team in the world as central striker Mauro Icardi will get serviced primarily from the wings. No other team in Serie A matches Inter Milan for its total volume of attempted crosses or for that matter accuracy. Manager Luciano Spalletti has been in charge for a year and he wasted no time in making a great first impression by winning the International Champions Cup tournament in 2017. In his first season with Inter Milan he was able to get the squad qualified for the UEFA Champions League. Spalletti has a career record at Inter Milan of 20 wins, 13 draws, and just seven losses.
Chelsea Style and Tactics
Although Chelsea may not play an all-out attack style like most of its other successful English Premier League rivals it remains effective by emphasizing the counter attack. With such tactics, manager Antonio Conte’s team won the 2016-17 title. In fact, Chelsea has the world wild reputation of being one of the absolute best counter attack teams in the world. However, Conte was recently sacked with Maurizio Sarri taking over. This could make for Chelsea having to adapt to new priorities and the hesitation of a squad in transition.
