Inter Milan vs Real Madrid
UEFA Champions League
Date: Wednesday, 25 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Stadio Giuseppe Meazza.
Before the commencement of the competition, these two teams were expected to top the group. However, at the halfway point of the Group Stage, we find these two strong squads at the bottom of standings.
And it goes without saying that time is fast running out for them to rectify things. It’s a must that either of these two win this upcoming encounter, or else risk being eliminated in this first round itself.
For the finalists of the 2019-20 Europa League and the most successful team in the Champions League – there would be no worse humiliation.
Suffice it to say that both these squads are desperate, and considering the phenomenal offensive firepower on both sides – there’s a high probability that the upcoming encounter will be have goals in plenty.

Antonio Conte’s men lost 3-2 at the Santiago Bernabeu against this same opponent, in their last match-up in the competition.
The hosts had run to a 2-0 lead by the 30-minute mark, and though the Nerazzurri had scored two goals back, Rodrygo scored the winning goal for the home team in the 80th minute.
Going on, Zidane’s men have scored two or more goals in five of their former seven games, and they have done the same in four of their six last road trips. Do also note that they have scored three or more goals in three of the preceding four h2h clashes.

Moreover, Conte’s men had failed to keep clean sheets in ten of their former twelve overall matches, and they had conceded two or more goals in five of their preceding six home fixtures.
