Inter Milan Beat Atletico Madrid In International Champions Cup Final

Atletico Madrid played with a 4-4-2 formation.

Atletico Madrid played with a 4-4-2 formation, with keeper Jan Oblak, Juanfran, Diego Godin, Jose Jimenez and Filipe Luis on defense; Thomas Partey, Koke, Saul and Thomas Lemar at midfield; and Angel Correa and Diego Costa in front.

Inter Milan opted for a standard 4-2-3-1 formation, with keeper Samir Handanovic, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Miranda, Milan Skriniar and Dalbert on defense; Matias Vecino and Kwadwo Asamoah as defensive midfielders; Matteo Politano, Marcelo Brozovic and Lautaro Martinez as offensive midfielders; and Mauro Icardi as forward.

Lautaro had an early chance to score in the 11th minute, after an assist by Icardi, but his shot from outside the box was blocked by Oblak.

None of the teams found decent chances until Lautaro's acrobatic goal from the right of the box in the 31st minute, connecting a superb pass over the top and from the left by Asamoah.

The International Champions Cup ended with Tottenham in first place, tying at seven points with Dortmund and Inter Milan, though the English team had a better goal differential.
