Real Sociedad vs Inter Milan odds
*Odds correct as of 18:15 on September 11
Inter were the beaten finalists in last season’s Champions League. They ended a long wait for a quarter-final appearance — having last made it that far in 2010/11 — in what was the second year in a row Inter made it out of the group stage. The three previous seasons ended in group-stage exits.
Inter have an interesting group this time around, including Benfica, Red Bull Salzburg and, of course, Real Sociedad.
Despite being a household name in Spanish football, this is only Real Sociedad’s third time in the Champions League this century, with two further European Cup appearances in the 1980s. In 2003/04, Real Sociedad made it to the last 16 of the Champions League, and 10 years later they bowed out at the group stage. Funnily enough, 10 years on and Real Sociedad are back in the Champions League after their fourth-placed finish in La Liga last season. Real Sociedad have played in the Europa League for the past three campaigns and while they made it out of the group on all three occasions, they have lost their first knockout match each time.
