Prediction and odds for the game: Inter (21/20) v Real Madrid (11/5)
We are backing the draw at odds of 29/10
When: Wednesday, 25th November 2020, Kick-off 20:00
Where: The Giuseppe Meazza
On Wednesday night, Inter host Real Madrid at the Giuseppe Meazza, in one of the biggest midweek games in the Champions League.
There were big things expected of Inter this season in the second campaign under Antonio Conte. However, the Nerazzurri have made an inconsistent start to the season. In fact, a 4-2 win over Torino last time out ended a four-game winless run in all competitions. Their mixed form has left Inter fifth-place in the Serie A table.
When it comes to European action, Conte’s team has been poor, picking up just two points from their three games in Group B. The Italian side head into this clash with a poor recent record in the Champions League. The men from Milan have failed to win in their previous four outings in Europe’s elite competition while winning just once in their last six matches in the competition.
Inter’s recent home record in the Champions League is mixed, but the Nerazzurri have lost just once in their previous nine home games. However, four of their last six matches on home soil in the Champions League have finished all square.
Like their opponents, Real Madrid have endured a mixed start to their campaign at home and abroad. Zinedine Zidane’s team are fourth-place in the table after a highly inconsistent start to their La Liga campaign.
Their recent form has been worrying for anybody associated with Los Blancos, as a 1-1 draw with Villarreal last time out means that the Spanish champions have won just three of their last eight games in all competitions.
Los Blancos’ Champions League campaign has summed up their inconsistency, as the visitors have won one, drawn one and lost one. Their last European game was a 3-2 win in the reverse fixture. The win took Real Madrid to four points, second place in Group B. It was Real Madrid’s first victory in five Champions League games.
The visitors still have work to do to book their place in the knockout stages of the competition, despite being the favourites to win the group at the start of the campaign. A loss in Milan would put the visitor’s hopes of qualification for the last-16 in major doubt.
This is a massive game in a very open group, with all four teams in the group still in with a chance of making the knockout stages of the Champions League. The reverse fixture was a close one and we expect this to be another close, ending in a draw. However, we do expect this game to produce goals, though, so we are backing over 2.5 goals scored.
Verdict: We are backing the draw at odds of 29/10 and/or over 2.5 goals scored at odds of 4/7. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
