Inter Milan (INT) will host 13-time UCL winners Real Madrid (RM) in their opening Group D fixture of UEFA Champions League 2021-22 at the San Siro Stadium, Italy on Thursday, September 16 at 12:30 AM.
INT vs RM Dream11 Prediction
Both Real Madrid and Inter Milan head into this fixture after impressive starts in La Liga and Serie A respectively. Los Blancos currently top the La Liga table with 10 points after a 5-2 win over Celta Vigo a couple of days ago.
They will head into this fixture full of confidence. Meanwhile, Inter Milan too have made a good start to their league campaign. They are coming off a 2-2 draw against Sampdoria on Sunday but will fancy their chances against the Galacticos in front of their fans at San Siro.
Inter Milan and Real Madrid have faced each other thrice since 2015 in the UEFA Champions League with Real Madrid emerging victorious on all three instances. The last encounter between the two sides was played at the San Siro as Real Madrid clinched a 2-0 win and Los Blancos are likely to come away with a similar result this time around as well.
INT vs RM Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
Karim Benzema of RM is a no-brainer for the forward position. The 33-year-old has been in rollicking form this season, with five goals and four assists to his name. The Frenchman has been selected by 94 percent of fantasy users and although slightly expensive, he’s a must-have pick for 11 credits.
Top tip: Best midfielder
Ivan Perisic of INT will be one of the best midfielders for this clash. The Croatian has the knack of catching the opposition off-guard and scoring goals from unexpected angles. He will pose a threat to Real’s generally attack-minded fullbacks, which is why Perisic has been chosen by 80 percent of fantasy users and makes for a great inclusion for 9.5 credits.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
Dani Carvajal of RM will be the best defensive pick for this match. The Spanish right-back has been mostly solid at the back and loves to bomb forward at the first given opportunity. Carvajal has also scored a goal this season and will be a steal for 8.5 credits.
Amongst the goalkeepers, Samir Handanovic of INT will be the preferred choice over his counterpart. The Slovenian loves to keep a clean sheet and will trust his teammates to remain organized and solid. The 37-year-old is available for 8.5 credits and is a worthy pick.

INT probable XI (3-5-2): Handanovic; Skriniar, De Vrij, Dimarco; Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic; Martinez, Dzeko
