Inter is welcoming Real Madrid to Giuseppe Meazza in round 4 in the UEFA Champions League.
Inter is on a 2-game winning streak, and they have lost only 1 of their last 8 games but Inter is still without a win in the Champions League. Inter is in the last place in their Champions League group, and they are in desperate need of a win here. Inter has scored 4 goals while conceding 5 goals in the Champions League so far. In their last Serie A game, Inter was hosting Torino, and they were the better team with 55% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 6 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. In the 62nd minute, Inter was losing 0-2, but just 5 minutes after Inter was able to score 2 goals, and the score was now 2-2. With 2 more goals, Inter has won this game 4-2. With this win, Inter has climbed the standings to 5th place in Serie A, and they are the best offensive team with 20 scored goals. Lukaku has scored 2 goals for Inter in the Champions League, while Martinez and Perisic added 1 goal each. Vecino and Sensi are injured, while Padelli, Brozovic, and Kolarov are still in quarantine. This is a tough group, but Inter is a solid team, and I believe they will be able to scramble a few points to give themselves a chance at getting past the group stage.
Real Madrid is inconsistent this season, and they haven’t won any of their last 2 games in LaLiga. Real was playing against Villarreal in LaLiga last weekend, and they have had 53% of ball possession, 1 shot on goal, 2 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and 89% of the correct passes. Real got ahead in the 2nd minute of the game, but Villarreal tied the score in the 76th minute from the penalty spot. We haven’t seen any more goals, and the final score of this game was 1-1. Odriozola, Valverde, Jovic, Ramos, and Benzema are all injured, and they will miss this game. Real does have Hazard at their disposal, but he is out of form, and they are lacking offensive options, as much as they lack defensive stability. Real Madrid is in 3rd place in the standings with 4 points, 7 scored goals, and 7 conceded goals. Benzema is Real’s leading goalscorer with 2 goals, while Ramos, Casemiro, Rodrygo, Junior, and Modric added 1 goal each. Real is in soft rebuild mode because of all the injuries, and because of that their form is shaky. Real will have a tough time getting enough points to advance past the group stage in the Champions League.
The trends are on Real’s side in this matchup, and they have won their latest clash in Madrid just a few weeks ago. I think this game will go the other way because Inter is scoring a lot of goals, and Real Madrid is wildly inconsistent defensively, while they are not creating a lot of chances in the attacking end. I will side with Inter in this one.
