Inter Milan and Real Madrid reissue last season's group stage match in the UEFA Champions League. The draw has placed them in the same group for the second consecutive year and this Wednesday, starting at 9:00 p.m. (local hour), they will meet again at the Giuseppe Meazza.
With new names on the benches, Inzaghi and Carlo Ancelotti, but with almost the same faces on the pitch except for Lukaku in the Italians, replaced by Dzeko, both teams will compete a priori for the first place in Group D. Inter have in Lautaro Martínez their main argument in the attack after finally staying one more season in the Italian squad, despite being in many pools to leave. In addition, Inzaghi is betting this start of the season for the same scheme that Antonio Conte used and that the Scudetto gave him after more than a decade without winning it.
Real Madrid arrives in Milan on the back of Benzema and Vinicius and diminished by some casualties of men who are called to be key during the season, such as Bale, Kroos or Mendy. The Whites stayed last season in the semifinals and this year they are again aspiring to the maximum despite the fact that their name does not enter the pools of the main favorites.
