INTERNATIONAL CHAMPIONS CUP
Bayern Munich 0-2 Inter: Eder scores twice as Italians win
The Italy forward struck two against the German champions in the Nerazzurri's International Champions Cup win in Singapore on Thursday.
Eder scored a brace to lead Inter Milan to a 2-0 victory against a lacklustre Bayern Munich on Thursday in a pre-season friendly in Singapore.
Bayern dominated early on but it was Inter that managed to get a goal in the eighth minute against the run of play.
Eder scores twice within opening half an hour
An Antonio Candreva cross found 30-year-old Eder, who dispatched his header past the Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
Playing in front of a crowd of about 23,000 in the city-state's main stadium, Inter scored their second in the 30th minute on another quick counter-attack.
Croatian winger Ivan Perisic picked out Eder with a pin-point cross, leaving the striker with the easiest of finishes.
Bayern winger Ribery off with apparent injury
Bayern's Franck Ribery had seemed biggest threat to Inter, although the German champions seemed to lack their usual cutting edge.
However, Ribery did not make it through the whole match - four minutes after the second goal, he seemed to limp off with an injury, and was replaced by Milos Pantovic.
Eder did not get the chance to complete a hat-trick as he was taken off on 50 minutes by Inter coach Luciano Spalletti for Gabriel Barbosa.
Bayern grew into the game but never looked completely comfortable, even with the introduction of Thomas Mueller, who scored two goals in the side's 3-2 victory over Chelsea in a friendly match in Singapore Tuesday.
The encounter was part of the International Champions Cup, which brings together top-tier teams from Europe.
