Inter Milan vs Real Madrid Match Preview
For the second year in a row, Inter Milan and Real Madrid square off in a Champions League match on Wednesday.
When they were put together last season, things went haywire. Inter was then eliminated with a fourth-place finish, overseen by tactical genius Antonio Conte. Meanwhile, Real pushed their way into the knockout stages with a matchday 6 triumph over eventual group winners Monchengladbach.
Simone Inzaghi, the new head coach of the Nerazzurri, wants to put the past behind him, and there is no better way to do so than with a win over the record tournament winners on Wednesday.
Inter got off to a good start in Serie A, winning their first two games before being halted to a tie over the weekend.
Last season, Real reached the quarterfinals before being eliminated by Chelsea, who went on to win the trophy at the Estadio do Dragao in Porto.
The squad hasn’t changed much this season, and they’ve been playing some slick football to start the season. There were plenty of goals, with Benzema, Vinicius, and Valverde being the main contributors to the team’s 13 goals in four games.
After scoring 9 goals in three games, their Italian colleagues are an ideal match for offensive football. On Wednesday night, there will be fireworks at the San Siro.
Inter Milan vs Real Madrid Head-to-head
Inter Milan has a tiny advantage over Real Madrid in the head-to-head record, with 8 victories from 17 games, 2 draws, and 7 losses.
Real won both legs of the group stage last season, 2-0 in Italy and 3-2 in Spain.
Real’s 2-0 win here last season was their first over Inter Milan on the road, after drawing two and losing five of their previous seven meetings.
The Nerazzurri have a solid home record against Spanish La Liga clubs, winning 10 of the 22 meetings, drawing 9 and losing only three.
Meanwhile, Real won 10 of their 38 games played on Italian soil as a visiting team. During that time, they drew 8 games and lost 18.
Inter Milan vs Real Madrid Prediction
These two sides play football with a lot of swagger, and as a neutral, all I can hope for is that the respective managers in the dugout don’t change their styles. It’s the first matchday of the Champions League, and attacking football is acceptable.
Inter comes into this game having scored over 3.5 goals in all three of their Serie A games, while Real has scored over 4.5 goals in three of their four games.
For the same reason, I’m tempted to back both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 1.95, as well as the full-time draw at 3.60, as the main bet for this match.
Meanwhile, Karim Benzema and Lautaro Martinez are in fine form and are good bets to score at any point.
