CURIOUS FACTS

  • Real Madrid has scored 999 goals in 454 games in the European Cup/Champions League (excluding qualifying rounds). Their average of 2.2 goals per game is the highest of any team in the two competitions among those that have played 50 or more matches.
  • Inter Milan's last away win over Spanish opposition in European competition was in October 2004, a 5-1 victory over Valencia. Since then, the Nerazzurri have not won in their last seven such encounters, suffering six defeats (1E), most recently against Real Madrid in November 2020.
  • Real Madrid have won seven of the eight games in which they have hosted Inter Milan in European competition (1D). Since losing to them in March 1967 in the European Cup, they have won each of the last five and scored at least two goals in each (17 in total).
  • Inter Milan's last 11 meetings with Spanish opponents in European competition have yielded just one win for the Nerazzurri (2-0 against Getafe in the Europa League in August 2020), drawing once and losing nine of those 11 matches, including each of the last four.
  • Real Madrid has won each of its last three matches against Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League, all since the start of last season. Among the 18 total meetings to date, this is their longest winning streak against the Italian side in European competition.
3:37 PM8 months ago

CURIOUS FACTS

  • In no other Champions League campaign has Karim Benzema scored more goals during the group stage than the five he has managed in the current campaign - all have come in his last four games. The Frenchman has never scored in five consecutive games in the competition, while with 64 goals for Real Madrid, he is now just two goals shy of catching Raul (66).
  • Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric (99) could play his 100th UEFA Champions League game in this match. The Croatian would be the 10th different player to reach 100 Champions League appearances playing for Real Madrid (after Raúl, Roberto Carlos, David Beckham, Iker Casillas, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sergio Ramos, Karim Benzema, Toni Kroos and Marcelo); the most for any team in the competition.
  • Inter Milan pair Edin Dzeko and Lautaro Martinez have created nine chances between them in the UEFA Champions League this season; only Manchester United's Bruno Fernandes and Cristiano Ronaldo (11) have produced more as a duo.
  • In this season's UEFA Champions League, Real Madrid have constructed 40 attacks (sequences of 10 or more passes that end with a finish or a touch in the opponent's box), the most by any team, four of them ending in a goal, also a record in the competition so far this campaign.
  • Regardless of the result, Inter Milan have qualified for the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League for the first time in 10 seasons, the last previous time being in 2011-12 when they were eliminated by Marseille in the round of 16.

INTER MILAN TEAM OVERVIEW

Inter has added remarkably recently and even issued a series of 11 matches without defeats. In Serie a, they drew with Juventus and Milan and entered the race for the Championship. In the last round of the Champions league, the team beat Shakhtar Donetsk 2-0 with a dry score. Since then they have not lost even in three matches in the national championship.
3:26 PM8 months ago

REAL MADRID CF TEAM SUMMARY

Real Madrid achieved 10 victories in 11 matches. The only loss of points came in the league, where the team reached the top and was even able to separate itself from its pursuers. In this stretch they dropped two wins against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions league by 5-0, 2-1. In addition, the game at the Santiago Bernabeu was equal, and Madrid got lucky somewhere. And on the last matchday they took revenge against Sheriff for the defeat in the first round by 3-0.
3:20 PM8 months ago

HEAD TO HEAD

In the first match in Milan, the guests won 0-1, with a goal from Rodrygo. In 2020, Inter and Real Madrid met in the UCL also in the group stage, and Real won both matches: 3-2 at home and 0-2 in Italy.
3:18 PM8 months ago

FACE-TO-FACE MATCHES AND RECENT RESULTS

The last four full-time matches went Real Madrid's way. In three of them, they did not even lose. This was the case in September, when the match of the first round of the Champions League was held. The only goal was scored by Rodrigo in the 89th minute, which gave Real Madrid the victory.
3:16 PM8 months ago

HOW INTER ARRIVE

Inter Milan are also unbeaten in their last 11 games, only the Nerazzurri have nine wins and two draws. Still, they are equally if not more impressive than their upcoming opponents. This Saturday, Simone Inzaghi's side destroyed Jose Mourinho and Roma away (0-3), adding the fourth consecutive win without conceding a goal.

Meanwhile, Dzeko, Lautaro and the rest of the boys scored at least two goals in each of those outings. Inter had a bit of a slower start, but at this point, the Italian champions reached their top speed, and are putting on fantastic displays.

Believe it or not, they have only one away defeat since the start of the campaign, and that was against Lazio. In the other 10 matches, the Nerazzurri won seven times and recorded three draws.

3:09 PM8 months ago

THIS IS HOW THE REAL MADRID THING ARRIVES!

Real Madrid is not playing attractive soccer at all, but Los Blancos are winning. Right now, they have eight wins in a row, and 10 in the last 11 games, with one draw in between.

Los Madrileños have scored two or more goals on 10 occasions during this positive streak. As time went on, Ancelotti's side began to tighten up defensively, and on three of the previous four occasions, Courtois kept a clean sheet.

As for the efficiency of their matches, we can say that the most frequent result is 2 or 3 goals, happening seven times in the last 10 games. Once Real takes the lead, Ancelotti immediately changes tactics, slows down the pace and waits for counterattacking chances.

3:07 PM8 months ago

THIS IS HOW INTER LINES UP!

This is how Inter Milan will play, they want to ruin Madrid's party at home and with their people.

3:03 PM8 months ago

THIS IS HOW REAL MADRID LINES UP!

These are the eleven players that Carlo Ancelotti will field for the victory at the mythical Santiago Bernabéu. HALA MADRID! 

3:01 PM8 months ago

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

Both Real Madrid and Inter Milan are in fantastic form, and their clash will be the derby of the entire round. The two powerhouses are about to decide the winner of Group D, with Real having a better chance of topping the group by virtue of winning the first match and having two more points.
3:00 PM8 months ago

THE WAIT IS OVER

The wait is over for Real Madrid and Inter Milan. Both clubs will return to action in the most disputed tournament at club level, both teams are already qualified and without risk of being out of the round of 16, in this match only the group leader will be decided.
