Real Madrid vs Inter Milan, UEFA Champions League 2020-21, Match Prediction 

Real Madrid welcome Inter Milan to find their first Champions League victory of the 2020-21 season on Tuesday night. 

Match Timings: Nov 04, 1:30 AM 

Team Preview 

Los Blancos started their 2020-21 campaign with a shocking 3-2 defeat against Shakhtar and played a draw against Borussia Monchengladbach in the next game. With just one point from two matches, Madrid finds itself at the bottom of the section. 

Zidane’s side shipped in three goals in the first half of the season opener. Madrid tried to break Shakhtar’s defense in the second half and scored goals in 54th and 59th minutes, but they failed to get an equalizer despite the solid efforts in the last minutes. In the second game, Monchengladbach almost grabbed the game with Thuram’s double strikes, but Los Blancos pulled off a stunning comeback to strike twice in the last 7 minutes, thanks to Benzema and Casemiro. Apart from the UEFA league, they topped the table in La Liga 2020-21 with 16 points from seven matches. They recently defeated Barcelona 3-1 in the first leg of El Classico. 

Meanwhile, Inter Milan have drawn their first two games to take the third spot. The last season’s Europa League runner-up will fancy its chances after picking two points from two matches. They were held to a 2-2 draw with Gladbach from the losing situation, thanks to Lukaku’s fine strike through the corner in the 90th minute. Lukaku has been a big savior for Milan this season as he also scored 5 goals in Serie A this season. In the next game, they walked away with one point in a goalless draw with Shakhtar. 

Antonio Conte's side desperately needs three-points to boost its chances for the knock-out stage. Inter occupy the 5th spot in the domestic season, having won three, drawn two, and lost one of their six matches this season. The Serie A club has won two of their previous 12 Champions League matches, and they haven’t crossed the group stage in this competition from the last two editions. Stats might be shocking for them, but with Lukaku in the attack, the Italian giants can take points from this fixture.
