Chelsea v AC Milan : Bet365 report plenty of support for Blues on American Tour

Chelsea and AC Milan meet in what looks to be a great pre-season friendly on Saturday in America, as Bet365 report plenty of support from punters on their recently launched free bets offer of £200 on any pre season game.

Both teams will of course be competing in the Champions League next season so it is a chance to weigh up a potential opponent in the competition.

Looking at the Blues to begin with, Roberto Di Matteo is now in permanent charge at Stamford Bridge and he will want to bring the Premier League title to the club.

Di Matteo certainly impressed in his interim spell at the helm of the side, delivering both Champions League and FA Cup success.

Fernando Torres will be looking to continue his good form from Euro 2012. He is likely to lead the line for the Blues this year and will want to be on the score sheet in this encounter.

After drawing with big spenders PSG last time out, Chelsea will now look to get a win under their belt against another giant of European football.

As for AC Milan, their main objective this season is to regain the Serie A title, which Juventus won comfortably earlier in the year.

The Italian side know it will be a tough job though, especially as two of their star men – Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva – have been sold to PSG. It is now time to show what they can do without these two men in the side.

It is a chance for players to show that they can step up to the plate against top opposition and for the manager Massimiliano Allegri to see where he may need to strengthen.

With one victory over Schalke in pre-season already, Milan can boost their confidence again here.

It looks to be a great encounter in Florida with two teams sharing similar ambitions for their respective campaigns. Kick-off is at 11.30pm on Saturday.
