Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Inter will be looking to record their first win in Group D when they host Sheriff Tiraspol to their Stadio Giuseppe Meazza on Tuesday evening. The Nerazzurri failed to impress in a goalless draw with Shakhtar Donetsk, but they are still seen as hot favourites to beat Sheriff at home ground. Both Brazao and Eriksen remain on the sidelines, while Sensi is a major doubt. The good news for the hosts is that key attacker Lautaro Martinez returns from international duty.
The Moldovan champions, on the other hand, kicked off their Champions League campaign with back-to-back wins over Shakhtar and Real Madrid, but seeing that Inter want this win more than Sheriff, we predict that the visitors will return to Moldova empty-handed. Defender Gustavo Dulanto is banned for the visiting team, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered.

Highlighted Team (Sheriff Tiraspol):
Sheriff Tiraspol or simply Sheriff are the most successful Moldavian club. The club was founded in 1997 four years later (2000/2001) they won their first Moldovan National Division trophy. Over the years Sheriff Tiraspol have established themselves as the dominant force in the Moldovan football and you should that they won their 15th domestic trophy in the 2016/2017 season.
Sheriff were level on points with Dacia Chisinau, but thanks to a better goal difference Roberto Bordin’s men won the national championship. The Moldovan champions wear yellow shirts and yellow shorts when playing at home, whilst the colour of their away kits is black. Sheriff Tiraspol host their opponents at Sheriff Stadium in Tiraspol and the venue can hold 12.746 people.
By beating the likes of Dinamo Tirana and Dinamo Zagreb the Moldovan club did well to make it to the Champions League play-off round in the 2010/2011 season, but Basel eventually proved to be a big catch for them.
