PSG v CHELSEA BETTING PREVIEW
PSG have won all three games they have played in pre-season so far, beating SK Vienna 3-0 and enjoying two wins in the International Champions Cup against Benfica and Fiorentina (3-2 and 4-2). While the Ligue 1 team have been scoring, they have also been conceding, letting in two goals in both of the matches they have played in the ICC so far.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is expected to continue up front for PSG. Young talents such Jean-Kevin Augustin and Adrien Rabiot are beginning to flourish and both will be included in the starting XI. Trapp and Sirigu are in contention for a starting berth between the posts while Aurier and Marquinhos could pe the central defensive pair.
Chelsea suffered a shock defeat (2-4) at the hands of MLS outfit New York Red Bulls. All of those four goals against the weakened Red Bulls team came in the second half which was labelled "a disaster" by Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese manager is expected to field strong line ups for the match. New signing Radamel Falcao and other South Americans as Juan Cuadrado and Willian have joined the team and will play at some stage. Asmir Begovic had a debut to forget and will be replaced by regular goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
