The UEFA Champions League returns to the fold with an exciting fixture this week as Inter Milan host Spanish champions Real Madrid at the San Siro on Wednesday. The two European giants have been fairly inconsistent this season and will need to step up to the plate this week.
Inter Milan picked up an important 4-2 victory against Torino in the Serie A over the weekend and will be confident going into this fixture. The Italian side suffered a disappointing defeat in the reverse fixture and cannot afford to lose this game.
Real Madrid have a depleted squad going into this game and will need their younger players to step up against Antonio Conte's seasoned outfit. Los Blancos have plenty of firepower in their ranks and will view this fixture as an opportunity to turn their European campaign around.
