Inter Milan welcomes Borussia Dortmund at the San Siro
Inter Milan welcomes Borussia Dortmund at the San Siro in one of the big derbies of the third round of the Champions League’s group stage. We will spend a few minutes to discuss this clash in our Champions League free soccer predictions.
If they want to reach the Champions League knockout stage, Inter Milan must start winning points as soon as possible. After two games played in Group F so far, the Nerazzurri are fourth in the standings with only one point won. Meanwhile Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona already have four points each, so the Italians have some catching up to do.
In the previous round Inter had a tough visit to Barcelona, which they lost. At halftime Antonio Conte’s team had one goal lead, thanks to the strike of Lautaro Martinez. Everything changed in the second half when Luis Suarez scored a brace for Barca and put the Nerazzurri to their knees.
The big difference now is that Romelu Lukaku is coming back for Inter Milan. The Belgian striker missed the visit to the Camp Nou, but now he will be ready to help his teammates against Dortmund.
Borussia Dortmund are moving well in the group so far. After the draw against Barcelona in the first round, the Germans enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 win during the visit to Slavia Praha in the Czech capital. Both goals in the game were scored by Achraf Hakimi, who executed two assists from Julian Brandt.
This game on Wednesday is really important for both teams. Inter Milan can say goodbye to the 1/8-finals if they lose, while Borussia Dortmund can make a solid step towards the knockout phase.
In our Champions League free soccer predictions we expect a very competitive game between Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night. The Germans are in a much better position at the moment, but things could change very quickly.
