Inter Milan vs Real Madrid: Visitors to edge thriller

Inter Milan vs Real Madrid: Visitors to edge thriller

Kick-off: 2000, 15/09/2021

Stadium: San Siro

TV: BT Sport

Inter Milan and Real Madrid are familiar foes after being placed in the same Champions League group for the second successive season.

Inter claimed the Serie A title last term but it was a very different story in Europe as they finished bottom of Group B with just one win.

They lost both meetings with the Spanish giants and look weaker this season so we’re backing an away win at 9/5 as our first Inter Milan vs Real Madrid prediction.

A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds

Inter cruised to Serie A glory last season as they finished 12 points clear of city rivals AC Milan.

Antonio Conte departed as coach in the summer, though, and financial pressures forced the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea while Christian Eriksen is an obvious absentee.

It means this season could be about rebuilding and Inter dropped their first points of the campaign on Sunday when they twice threw away the lead in a 2-2 draw at Sampdoria.

Nine goals scored in three matches at least suggests they are coping without Lukaku but it is questionable whether they are strong enough at the back to frustrate their visitors.

Real Madrid won 3-2 when the teams met in Spain last November and were 2-0 winners in the return game, helped by the first-half dismissal of Arturo Vidal.

Looking at the Inter Milan vs Real Madrid odds, we like a Real win and both teams to score at 15/4.

A Look At Real Madrid’s Betting Odds

Real Madrid lost two games during the group stage last season but still did just enough to finish top of a hard-fought Group B.

They then got past Atalanta and Liverpool as they threatened to add to their 13 European titles but their run ended with a 3-1 aggregate defeat against Chelsea in the semi-finals.

Los Blancos have made a solid start to their La Liga campaign and lead the way on 10 points after their first four matches.

They have also been the entertainers of the division, with their matches featuring 19 goals of which 13 have been at the right end for Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

Karim Benzema’s hat-trick in a 5-2 drubbing of Celta Vigo on Sunday took his tally to five while Vinicius Junior has four goals already.

Backing Real to score in both halves would have paid out in both meetings with Inter last season so let’s go for more of the same at 13/5 for our final Inter Milan vs Real Madrid prediction.
