Real Madrid will host Inter Milan on the matchday three of the Champions League.
Stadium: Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium
- Real Madrid have a better home record against Inter Milan in the Champions League, winning six out of the seven games played.
- Los Blancos have won eight of their last nine games in UCL against Italian oppositions.
Madrid will be going all out against Inter after not registering a win in the Champions League this season.
However, their La Liga record looks good after winning their last two games including the El Clasico against Barcelona. Eden Hazard has made a timely return and even scored in Madrid’s recent win against Huesca.
Another thing Zinedine Zidane can be happy about is the fight they put in the second half against both Shakhtar Donetsk and Borussia Monchengladbach.
Real Madrid – Possible line-up
Courtois; Mendy, Varane, Ramos, Marcelo; Kroos, Casemiro, Valverde; Hazard, Benzema, Asensio
Martin Odegaard, Nacho, Dani Carvajal
“I’m happy with his[Hazard] performance. He played 20 minutes the other day and today he started and played a little more. We know the quality he has. He scored a good goal and it was important because the match was different after that. He doesn’t have any pain and he’s happy about his goal. His teammates are happy for him. With this win and with four goals scored, we have to be content with today’s work.”Zinedine Zidane, Real Madrid manager
Like Madrid, Inter Milan were off to an unexciting start in the Champions League, drawing against Gladbach and Shakhtar.
Their Serie A form is kind of below-par after drawing two and losing one in six games thus far.
Inter Milan – Possible line-up
Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Bastoni; Hakimi, Barella, Brozovic, Vidal, Perisic; Sanchez, Martinez
The absence of Romelu Lukaku due to injury reflected on Inter’s draw against Parma, and it remains to be seen how much it will affect in the clash against Madrid. Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez have been touted as the striker-duo for the game.
