First game in the CL at home is a must win. Never mind form, missing players etc if you want to achieve something we should win the first match. Even though it won't be easy but I'm not impressed by Real. The only thing that worries me is how easily we concede goals this season and with someone like Benzema you know he will take any chance and probably score. Hopefully Correa starts as he seems to be the only one we can create something out of nothing.

If we failed in consecutive seasons against Slavia Prague and Borussia Monchwhatever, I doubt that Real Madrid is going to break the duck.

(I initially typed 'three consecutive seasons' before I remembered our first CL match in years was the 2-1 against Tottenham with Icardi and Vecino. That's one of my favorite Inter games in recent times. Too bad in the end we still went out like chumps in the group stage.)

Just read one article where it says Real Madrid's main keys to victory tomorrow are: Contain the midfield and mainly contain Barella, win the aerial battles,and Vinicius really needs to come to play to unlock our defense(Be there x-factor)

Thoughts on these?
This is exactly what will happen unfortunately.

Yeah I know but we shouldn't think about previous years. In the end I would be happy with a draw but we should go out and try to win. This Madrid isn't the Real we all know. Not that it's going to be easy but getting the first win in the first game leaves some room to breath going into the other games. That should be our focus. In the end we are f*ckin Inter not a province club like Atalanta.

Really have a bad feeling about this game, Real apparently are playing 4-4-2 and we were destroyed by Candreva and Berezynski over the weekend.

I think we will get battered in this game.

They're simply better player by player as well as a team. At the same time I have little confidence in Inzaghi's ability to set the defense up correctly for this game.

1-3.
