Real Madrid to secure top spot against Inter

Real Madrid host Inter Milan at the Santiago Bernabeu on Tuesday for the final round of the group stages.

Real Madrid beat Inter Milan 1-0 in their first Champions League game before a shock 2-1 home loss to new boys Sheriff Tiraspol. The Spanish giants, however, bounced back from the defeat superbly, going on to win their next three games.

Real Madrid sit top of the group with 12 points after five games. They can secure top spot in the group with a draw on Tuesday. Inter Milan sit one place and two points behind their midweek hosts in the group table. Although they have qualified for the next round, the Italian outfit need a win to finish the group as leaders. Real Madrid have never lost to Inter Milan in all six of their meetings. The hosts have won five of those games and have drawn the other.

Both teams have secured a place in the knockout stages of the tournament. All that is left to fight for is the top spot in the group.

Real Madrid are unbeaten in their last 11 games across all competitions and have won their last eight on the bounce. Tuesday’s game should see the hosts pick up a slender victory.
