# Key Players of the Devil: Rossoneri is currently led by Italian playmaker Riccardo Montolivo. They have some talented players. Besides, Carlos Bacca is their best striker in this summer who would be the key player. He was the Milan’s top scorer in last season. And also need to mention another regular striker from France named M’Baye Niang who scored already once in this tournament. Alongside, Slovakian Kucka and Italian Bertolacci both scored one goal each in their first match in this ICC 2016 against Bayern Munich which makes them key players.
# Key players of the Blues: Chelsea has a number of good players in their current team squad though they would not place their best eleven in such kind of friendly match. But some of them will play for sure. Like Belgian playmaker Eden Hazard played previous two matches where he scored a couple of goals. Michy Batshuayi is their national teammate who have possible chance to perform in next match. Their regular skipper John Terry will lead them in field hopefully.
# Prediction: Though, Chelsea and Milan are two big clubs in their own league but if we consider their recent statistics, the Blues are just one step ahead of them. So, the prediction is – Chelsea 2 – 1 AC Milan.
