MILAN LOST to Chelsea in New Jersey in the night between Sunday and Monday in the semi final of the Guinness International Champions Cup. The first half was fairly balanced with both Milan and Chelsea getting goalscoring chances. Milan’s defense failed for the first time in the 28th minute when Eden Hazard passed the ball to a totally unmarked Kevin De Bruyne who finished cleverly to give Christian Abbiati no chance and give Chelsea the lead. The second half was quite different – both teams made changes and Milan struggled to find the target and even though at times they moved the ball around well the final pass was lacking and weren’t really a threat. Chelsea had plenty of chances to score but weren’t on a good finishing day. The Blues were clearly the better side and in the 91st minute Andre Schurrle scored Chelsea’s second. Milan will play L.A. Galaxy on the night between Wednesday and Thursday.
