Two European heavyweights get their Champions League group stage campaigns underway on Wednesday when Inter Milan host Real Madrid at the San Siro (8pm kick-off UK time).
These two sides met in the Champions League group stage last season, with Real Madrid winning both games en route to topping Group B while Inter Milan finished bottom.

Inter Milan vs Real Madrid build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Last season’s poor Champions League showing was the biggest blemish on Inter Milan’s campaign as they ended a 10-year wait for the Serie A title, but now they will be looking to make amends in what can only be described as a favourable group. Alongside Real Madrid, Inter Milan will take on Shakhtar Donetsk and Sheriff Tiraspol so a repeat of last season’s exit can only be seen as a disaster. The Nerazzuri have started life under Simone Inzaghi in good fashion, still unbeaten after three games in Serie A, winning two and drawing one, only losing their perfect record in a 2-2 draw with Sampdoria at the weekend.
While Inter Milan finished bottom of their group last season, Real Madrid topped it and beat Atalanta and Liverpool en route to the semi-finals where they would eventually bow out at the hands of eventual winners Chelsea. It has been all change at the Bernabeu since then, with Zinedine Zidane leaving and Carlo Ancelotti returning for his second spell at Real Madrid having previously led them to La Decima back in 2014. The Ancelotti era has started pretty well for Real Madrid as they sit top of La Liga with 10 points from their opening four games having won three and drawn one, scoring a massive 13 goals so far.
- Inter Milan (vs Sampdoria): Handanovic; Dimarco, De Vrij, Skriniar; Darmian, Barella, Calhanoglu, Brozovic, Perisic; Dzeko, Martinez.
- Real Madrid (vs Celta Vigo): Courtois; Carvajal, Militao, Fernandez, Gutierrez; Valverde, Modric, Casemiro, Vinicius; Benzema, Hazard.
Stefano Sensi suffered a knee injury in the draw with Sampdoria having come on as a substitute and will not feature, but Alessandro Bastoni has recovered from a thigh problem. Real Madrid remain without a host of players, including Ferland Mendy, Toni Kroos, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Dani Ceballos.

Tebas: Real Madrid can sign Haaland AND Mbappe
The past year has been covered in controversy in football, most notably with the failed start of the European Super League in which 12 clubs from across Europe had plotted to start their own competition. After protests and a lot of criticism from fans and pundits alike, nine of the 12 founding members announced their intention to withdraw, though three remain committed in Barcelona, Juventus and Real Madrid.
One of the main reasons behind the Super League was the falling financial security of the likes of Barcelona, who recently had to say goodbye to Lionel Messi as they could not pay his wages and meet La Liga restrictions, while also having to shed a number of fringe players to ease their wage bill. Real Madrid are another team to reportedly be facing financial trouble but in the summer transfer window, they were pushing hard to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain and had a bid of close to €200m rejected by the French side.
And La Liga president Javier Tebas is not buying any claims of Los Blancos facing financial concerns, claiming they have the funds to buy both Mbappe and Erling Haaland should they wish to do so.
“They have sold over €200m in players. They have money in the bank to sign Mbappe and Haaland together,” he said recently.
“They have not lost money and on top of that, they have sold assets.
“What is not understandable is that a club [PSG] who loses €400m, has €500m in salary excess, and can reject offers like the one for Mbappe.
“It is failure in the control rules of France, which has now hurt the European market.”
