Serie A giants Inter (INT) travel to Madrid to take on La Liga leaders Real Madrid (RM) in their final group stage game of the UEFA Champions League 2021-22 season at Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday, December 8. The Group D match will kick off at 1:30 AM IST.
RM vs INT Dream11 prediction
Both Real Madrid and Inter have already qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League, meaning that the managers might make several changes in the starting XI. However, what makes this fixture an interesting watch is the fact that the winning team will end the group stage on the top of the table.
Madrid, who are currently the leaders, have 12 points after five games while Inter have 10. Given Real Madrid’s form coupled with the home advantage, it is safe to say they will be the outright favourites on Wednesday.
RM vs INT Dream11 team tips for UEFA Champions League 2021-22
Top tip: Best forward
RM forward Vinicius Junior has revived his career in some style. The 21-year-old Brazil international has netted two goals and has provided three assists in five UCL games, making him a must-have player for this fixture. While INT’s Edin Dzeko can also be considered, what makes Vinicius our first pick is the goal-scoring form he is in at the moment.
Top tip: Best midfielder
New signing Hakan Chalhanoglu has made quite an impact for Inter this season. The 27-year-old Turkey international has been involved in nine goals (five goals and four assists) in 14 Serie A appearances which has made him an undroppable player for Simone Inzaghi. We expect him to make a stern impact on Wednesday.
Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper
It took no time for INT’s Denzel Dumfries to settle into the new environment. The 25-year-old wing-back has made some important contributions to his team which includes one goal and three assists across Serie A and the Champions League. Come Wednesday, we expect him to be an outright threat.
For a goalkeeper, our recommendation would be RM’s Thibaut Courtois. Madrid may have kept back-to-back clean sheets recently, but their previous record has been troubling. This means Courtois will be called into action quite frequently on Wednesday, making him a worthy pick for this fixture.
RM vs INT probable playing
RM playing XI (probable): Thibaut Courtois (goalkeeper); Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, David Alaba, Ferland Mendy; Luka Modric, Casemiro, Toni Kroos; Rodrygo, Karim Benzema (captain), Vinicius Junior
INT playing XI (probable): Samir Handanovic (captain and goalkeeper); Danilo D'Ambrosio, Milan Skriniar, Alessandro Bastoni; Denzel Dumfries, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Chalhanoglu, Ivan Perisic; Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez
