Inter Milan vs Real Madrid: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
Two European heavyweights go head-to-head when Inter Milan host Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday at 8:00 PM (UK time).
Inter Milan vs Real Madrid: Predictions
With Group B hanging on a knife-edge, this is a winner-takes-all clash between to of the continent’s most successful clubs.
Inter have managed just two points from their opening three Champions League games so far, drawing with Borussia Monchengladbach and Shakhtar Donestk before falling to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Real Madrid earlier in November.
Things haven’t been much easier for Zinedine Zidane, however, with his side failing to beat Gladbach and Shakhtar — losing to the latter — before their victory over Antonio Conte’s men.
To make matters worse, Los Blancos are yet to find any consistency in domestic competition, either, sitting fourth in the La Liga table after winning only five of their opening nine games.
For Wednesday’s winner, a place in the Champions League round-of-16 will feel like a real possibility. For the loser, it might well be an early exit from Europe’s top table.

Inter Milan vs Real Madrid: Match Stats
Inter are unbeaten in seven home games against Real Madrid, winning their last three. However, this is the first time Los Blancos have visited the Nerazzurri since 1998.
Rodrygo has been directly involved in eight goals in eight Champions League games for Real Madrid (five goals, three assists) and scored the winner against Inter last time out. But Inter have a threat of their own in Romelu Lukaku, who has been directly involved in 15 goals (11 goals, four assists) in Champions League and Europa League play since the start of last season — only Robert Lewandowski (22) has been involved in more. The Belgium international has managed eight shots across his two Champions League appearances this season, finding the net with two of them.
Real Madrid won 3-2 at the start of November in what was the first competitive meeting between these two sides since 1998. That being said they have been familiar foes over the years and Los Blancos have never beaten Inter at the San Siro.
