International Champions Cup: Bayern in Singapore beat Chelsea

International Champions Cup: Bayern in Singapore beat Chelsea

The Spaniard made an nearly instant impact when he nodded on a corner to allow Batshuayi to stab home from close range in the 86th minute but Bayern held on for victory in front of 48,500 fans packed into the Singapore National Stadium.

Bayern started the better of the two sides, seemingly keen to make up for their 4-0 defeat to AC Milan, and went ahead after just six minutes.

It was a first defeat of pre-season for Chelsea after beating Arsenal 3-0 on Saturday, and although naturally disappointed, Conte found plenty to be happy with.

It was his presence at a corner that drew defenders and prompted the error that allowed Batshuayi to tap in Chelsea's second.

Chelsea were handed some sort of a lifeline when Nigeria global, Victor Moses, provided an assist to Marco Alonso who scored late to make the first half end 3-1 in favour of Bayern Munich.

But a sluggish start left them with too much to do against a rampant Bayern.

Before the Blues could catch their breath, Bayern had doubled their lead as James Rodriguez - starting out wide on the right - picked out Franck Ribery on the opposite flank.

'Kuwait orders Iran envoy to leave'
There, security forces found weapons and explosives, believed to belong to infiltrators from Iran and Lebanon's Hezbollah. In August 2015, Kuwait said it had busted the 26-member cell and seized arms, ammunition and explosives from them.

Antonio Conte had told Diego Costa, Chelsea's top scorer last season, that he was not in his plans for the future at Stamford Bridge; the Spaniard would be sold and a replacement brought in.

Thomas Muller got a brace for Bayern.

Results of course don't really matter in pre-season, but just as it's much nicer to win, it's not almost as nice to lose.

The £60million signing from Real Madrid came on as a second-half substitute with his new side trailing by two goals, and teed up Michy Batshuayi for his fifth goal of pre-season.

Boga had a decent chance to pull a goal back after being set up by Cesc Fabregas but was denied by veteran keeper Tom Starke.

The clash between last season's German and English league champions was the first ever ICC tie in Singapore, which will also feature Inter Milan later this week.

Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte cautiously praised the Alvaro Morata debut in his postgame press conference.
