Our prediction for this Champions League match:
After saving one point in a 2-2 draw with Borussia M’gladbach, Real Madrid will be looking to record their first win of the season when they host Inter at Alfredo di Stefano Stadium. Los Blancos have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at the Nerazzurri, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the La Liga champions, who obviously struggle at the back.
The good news for the hosts is that Eden Hazard has overcome his injury, but the likes of Carvajal, Nacho, and Odegaard are unlikely to feature against Inter. Antonio Conte’s troops, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Borussia M’gladbach and Shakhtar Donetsk in the previous two league fixtures. The Serie A side are eager to record their first win of the process as well, and we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score even though Romelu Lukaku is rated doubtful for the game.
Highlighted Player (Luka Modric):
Luka Modric is regarded as one of the best central midfielders in world football. The Croatian ace is a product of Dinamo Zagreb’s youth school and it has to be noted that he played 94 league games for the Modri between 2003 and 2008. In 2008 he signed a six-year deal with Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £16.5 million.
Luka made his Tottenham debut on 16 August, 2008 in a 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough at Riverside Stadium. The Croatian star scored only 13 goals in 127 league appearances for the Spurs, but he is well known for his brilliant passing. In 2012 he signed for Real Madrid for a fee of £30 million and he made his debut against Barcelona in the 2012 Spanish Super Cup, return leg.
Modric quickly established himself as a first-team regular and, no doubt, he helped the capital club win two Champions League trophies (2013/2014, 2015/2016). You should bear in mind that he was named Croatian Footballer of the Year in 2007, 2008, 2011 and 2014.
Highlighted Team (Inter):
Internazionale Milano, known as Internazionale, Inter or Inter named Milan, is a football club from Italy, founded on March 9, 1908 by a number of "rebels" who did not like in the regulations of the Milan Cricket and Football Club, now known as AC Milan. The main objection was that no foreign players were allowed. In 1928 the club merged with US Milanese and strongly entered a time when Ambrosiana-Inter survived.
The club, nicknamed the Nerazzurri or the blue / blacks has had many successes. This is how Inter Milan won 18 national titles, seven times the Italian Cup, the UEFA Cup 3x, and 3x times the Champions League, formerly known as the European Cup I.
