A successful weekend for Real Madrid as they beat a winless Huesca side in La Liga, with Eden Hazard netting his first goal in the league for over a year. That puts them two points clear at the head of the table although Atletico Madrid trail them by two points with a game in hand.
Inter on the other hand, could only manage a stalemate hosting Parma, meaning they’ve gone just W1-D4-L1 from their six matches since the start of October, as their sole victory came against 17th placed Genoa.
That certainly doesn’t look the sort of form capable of troubling the hosts at the Bernabeu, even if Los Blancos currently prop up Group B.
Real Madrid To Win And Both Teams To Score
Zizou’s charges lost their opener here to Shakhtar having gone three goals down within the opening 42 minutes, while they salvaged a point last week against Borussia M’gladbach thanks to 87th and 93rd minute strikes from Karim Benzema and Casemiro.
However, across all competitions now, they’ve won two of their last three unbeaten outings, beating rivals Barcelona 3-1 at the start of that run and it seems the confidence is starting to grow in Madrid.
The toughest fixture the Nerazzurri have had this term came against their local rivals AC Milan, with them losing 2-1 and we feel this next fixture could see a similar story.
Indeed, both teams have now scored in six of their eight fixtures this season and with just one win in six, we’re struggling to see how they’re going to come away with the points.
Furthermore, they could well be without Romelu Lukaku again for this fixture too. The Belgian international has scored in all but two of the matches he’s played in this term, accounting for nearly half the 15 goals they scored across those seven games, and his absence will be a huge blow.
Karim Benzema To Score Anytime
By contrast, Real Madrid won’t be missing any of their key players, while they’ve won five of their last eight, with both sides netting in each of the last four.
In fact, there has been as many as 10 goals in their last two at this stadium and we reckon there could be a few goals in this one.
The form man for the hosts at the minute is striker Benzema. He has three goals from his last two outings now and off the back of his performance against Huesca at the weekend, he looks great value to score in back-to-back Champions League matches.
