Inter Milan welcome Real Madrid to San Siro on Wednesday night for what promises to be a thrilling Group D encounter.
The Italian champions are still adjusting to a turbulent summer in which they lost head coach Antonio Conte, as well as star striker Romelu Lukaku. However, they started the season in good form, taking seven points in their first three games, and suffered little in front of goal, scoring nine times in Serie A.
Real Madrid are also going through an important transition period, with Carlo Ancelotti’s tenure starting on a positive note. His side are currently leading La Liga with 10 points in four games, while Karim Benzema remains in excellent form, scoring a hat-trick in a 5-2 loss to Celta Vigo this weekend. Madrid’s offer for Kylian Mbappe may have failed this summer, but new signing Eduardo Camavinga marked his debut with one goal.
European heavyweights were also reunited in last year’s group stage, with Madrid triumphing both at home and away.
