Inter Milan will host Real Madrid

Inter Milan host Real Madrid in a thrilling group stage tie in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.

Despite the departure of Antonio Conte this summer, along with Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi, Inter have started the new season in good form, taking seven points from their opening three matches. They have hardly struggled in front of goal either, having scored nine goals already with Lukaku’s replacement, Edin Dzeko, quickly getting off the mark.

Real Madrid are also in a period of transition, with Carlo Ancelotti replacing Zinedine Zidane at the helm, and currently sit top of La Liga with ten points from four matches. Karim Benzema scored a hat-trick last time out in a 5-2 thrashing of Celta Vigo, while new signing Eduardo Camavinga marked his debut with a goal.

Inter and Madrid were drawn in the same group last season, too, with the Spanish side coming out on top in both games.
