Team News for Both Sides

Karim Benzema has certainly silence all the critics this season, as he’s been in fine form. However, he’ll be missing from this one, as he picked up a hamstring injury versus Real Sociedad. He joins Gareth Bale (really REALLY surprising that’s he out injured) and Dani Ceballos on the sidelines.

Switching over to the visitors, Joaquin Correa picked up an injury on the weekend, and he’ll join a sizable group of sidelined players for Inter.

The list includes Matteo Darmian, Christian Eriksen, Andrea Ranocchia, Stefan de Vrij.

Prediction: Real Madrid 2, Inter Milan 1

We’re going with Los Reyes Del Europa in this one, as the Blancos have really been in form lately.
