In one of the most interesting matches in the UCL group stage, both, Inter and Real Madrid will seek a victory and a successful start.
The Serie A defending champions hope for a better Champions League competition this year, after the disappointing bottom place in the group stage last December. Now even departures impact their squat, with Conte, Hakimi, and Lukaku leaving the team.
On the other hand, Ancelotti who won the Champions League with Real in 2013-14, has the greatest win percentage (76%) of any manager at a single club in the competition’s history who has managed at least 20 games. He will rely on Karim Benzema to make an impact, with Hazard providing him with adequate support.
A close match is on the cards, and it is hard to separate the two sides. It is going to be an entertaining clash, and we expect to see a big battle between these two sides, a game filled with chances. Both teams have been involved in many high-scoring matches recently, and therefore we don’t see either side keeping the sheet clean at San Siro. Also, we do like the chances of Benzema netting a goal against Inter tonight.
Our prediction: Both teams to score @ 1.67
