class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>Both sides have strong scoring records but have been conceding goals, so we are backing a high-scoring Champions League clash in the Spanish capital
Real Madrid welcome Inter to the Estadio Alfredo di Stefano on Tuesday evening in what is a hugely important game in Group B of the Champions League for both sides.
Neither team have recorded a victory after two games, with the Italians having claimed two draws and Zinedine Zidane’s men salvaging a point at Borussia Monchengladbach last week after losing to Shakhtar Donetsk the match prior.
Real Madrid vs Inter Latest Odds
The hosts remain clear favourites despite their poor showing in their opening home match, with bet365 offering them at 9/10 (1.90).
Antonio Conte’s side have only won two of their last nine away matches in the Champions League and can be backed at 13/5 (3.60), with the draw at 3/1 (4.00).
Real Madrid vs Inter Team News
Eden Hazard should feature from the start after netting against Huesca, but Martin Odegaard, Dani Carvajal, Nacho Fernandez and Alvaro Odriozola all remain sidelined for Madrid. Lucas Vazquez is doubtful.
Inter are missing Uruguayan midfielder Matias Vecino and top scorer from last season Romelu Lukaku. Alexis Sanchez is also not likely to feature although centre-back Milan Skriniar could return having tested negative for coronavirus.
Real Madrid vs Inter Preview
Both outfits come into the game with a level of pressure they would not have expected to have after the opening two matches as neither have been at their best in Europe and domestically they have also had questions asked.
Inter are conceding more goals this season than last, having already let in 10 strikes in six Serie A games, while Real Madrid have consistently struggled to keep things as tight as they did in the previous campaign.
Had both sides been at their respective best then this would have almost certainly been a clash where goals should be opposed, but neither defence is in particularly convincing form and both attacks are striking.
Inter have kept two clean sheets in eight competitive fixtures this term, while scoring in seven of those matches, whilst Madrid have conceded in each of their last five matches yet have scored in all but one of their nine competitive clashes this term.
Real Madrid vs Inter Tips and Predictions
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5 (1.80) and has paid out in each of Real Madrid’s last six matches in the Champions League.
