Inter vs Real Madrid Predictions and Betting Tips
For the second season in a row, Inter and Real Madrid find themselves in the same UCL group and both teams kick things off on Matchday one this Wednesday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
Los Blancos managed to beat Internazionale both home and away last season condemning their opponents to a 4th place finish in the group stages. Real Madrid, with those two wins, now lead the way on their head-to-head record with eight twins in 17 matches compared to Inter's seven victories.
I Nerrazzuri keen on a better group stage performance
Internazionale, although lost a couple of key partakers in their Scudetto triumph of last season, have started the season quite nicely. Before last weekend, they beat Genoa and Hellas Verona 4-0 and 3-1 respectively putting them at the top of the table. Defensive calamities, however, were their downfall against Sampdoria just a couple of days ago as they were held to a 2-2 draw. Twice Internazionale had the lead and twice they lost it with both sides shaking hands for a share of the spoils. It is then left to see whether they wouldn't make such mistakes in the bid to do better than their 2020/2021 UCL performance.
It doesn't look like the wholesale changes in the Real Madrid squad would impact their success taking into account their recent league performance. Starman Karim Benzema is still in the thick of things for his side with the french-man netting 5 goals so far. Last time out, his hattrick made sure of a 5-2 victory for his side as they overturned a 2-1 deficit at halftime- Newboy Camavinga also on the scoresheet. Would their free-scoring nature come in handy this Wednesday ?

Inter vs Real Madrid Prediction: 2-2
Both sides head into this game in pretty decent form given their domestic performances. Real Madrid given their three-game winning streak in this fixture would have a slight advantage. Still and all, we still find it hard to pick a winner. However, we're expecting an over 2.5 goals return with both sides putting the ball in the net with ease in their recent matches.
