Inter Milan vs Real Madrid predictions and betting :
The UEFA Champions League is back with its 4th week of action lined up over the last week of November. On Wednesday night, Inter Milan is all set to host Real Madrid in what will be an epic clash between two quality sides in Europe. Inter are coming off a draw game against Atalanta in Serie A whereas Real Madrid faced an unexpected defeat at the hands of Valencia in La Liga.
The Group B in UCL is so close that the difference between first and last placed teams is just 3 as of now. Therefore, a win here for either of the teams means that they have a big chance to make it to the Round of 16.
Inter Milan vs Real Madrid predictions and betting: Recent form
Inter aren’t having the best of the seasons so far after struggling to keep up in Serie A as well as in Europe. They are currently 7th in Italy with just 3 wins in Serie A looking to get out of the hole. They have a similar story in Europe where they are yet to win a game this season as they are struggling in 4th place in Group B.
They started off with a stalemate against Monchengladbach and had to settle for a goal less draw against Shakhtar Donetsk. In the third game, they were taken down by Real Madrid by a 3-2 margin which means that they will be pushing hard to open their account by avenging that defeat next Wednesday.
On the other hand, Real Madrid are having a good time in Spain with 5 wins in 8 games so far. They are currently 4th in the La Liga points table and that particular defeat against Valencia in their outing should serve them as a wake-up call for the future.
As far as Champions League is concerned, they were handed a shocking defeat against Shakhtar Donetsk in the opener which was followed by a hard-fought draw against Monchengladbach. But it seems like they pulled back things after a 3-2 victory against Inter Milan last time around. They will be trying to replicate that performance so that they can get 3 points in the table.
