UEFA Europa League


Thanks for joining our commentary this evening. Until next time, goodbye.
Inter have only a few days to recover from their late defeat in their next Serie A contest against Bologna at San Siro on Saturday. Madrid are on the road in their next outing against Valencia on Sunday.
Real Madrid snatch the victory at the death in their Champions League clash against Inter, earning a 1-0 win at San Siro. The game appeared to be heading for a draw after both teams spurned good chances over the course of the contest. However, Rodrygo was in the right place at the right time to steer a left-footed volley past Samir Handanovic from close range after latching onto Eduardo Camavinga's cutback. The Brazilian's effort was enough to secure the three points for Madrid to start their European campaign on the front foot.

This is the second consecutive Champions League campaign in which Inter Milan and Real Madrid have been drawn in the same group – the Spanish side won home and away against them in 2020-21, including a 2-0 victory at the San Siro.
Madrid have made two changes to their line-up from their victory over Celta Vigo at the weekend. Alaba and Vazquez come into the fold in place of Gutierrez and Hazard respectively. Ancelotti shifts his formation to a 4-3-3 rather than a four-man midfield used last time out.
Inzaghi makes one change to his side that drew against Sampdoria last time out. Bastoni comes back into the side after missing the contest at the weekend and replaces Dimarco on the left side of the defence. Dzeko and Martinez spearhead the attack for the Nerazzurri.
REAL MADRID SUBS: Jesus Vallejo, Eden Hazard, Marco Asensio, Andriy Lunin, Luka Jovic, Rodrygo, Isco, Mariano Diaz, Eduardo Camavinga, Antonio Blanco, Miguel Gutierrez, Toni Fuidias.
REAL MADRID (4-3-3): Thibaut Courtois; Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Nacho Fernandez, David Alaba; Federico Valverde, Casemiro, Luka Modric; Lucas Vazquez, Karim Benzema, Vinicius Junior.
INTER SUBS: Denzel Dumfries, Roberto Gagliardini, Alexis Sanchez, Matias Vecino, Aleksandar Kolarov, Andrea Ranocchia, Joaquin Correa, Alex Cordaz, Arturo Vidal, Federico Dimarco, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Ionut Radu.
INTER (3-5-2): Samir Handanovic; Milan Skriniar, Stefan de Vrij, Alessandro Bastoni; Matteo Darmian, Nicolo Barella, Marcelo Brozovic, Hakan Calhanoglu, Ivan Perisic; Edin Dzeko, Lautaro Martinez. 
Madrid have also enjoyed a good start to the season under new management. Carlo Ancelotti's men carry a four-match unbeaten run into the contest, topping LaLiga in the early stages of the term. Los Blancos were at their free-flowing best in a 5-2 hammering of Celta Vigo last time out. Ancelotti will be desperate for another clinical performance in a tense clash on the road.
Inter embark on their Champions League campaign in their bid to win the competition for the first time in 12 years. New manager Simone Inzaghi has made a solid start to his reign in Serie A with a three-match unbeaten run, although his team were held to a 2-2 draw by Sampdoria last time out. The Nerazzurri will have to up their standards against Madrid tonight to kick off their Group D campaign on the front foot.
Good evening and welcome to the live commentary of the Champions League Group D clash between Inter and Real Madrid at San Siro.
