Real Madrid get their 2021/22 Champions League campaign up and running this evening as they take on Inter at San Siro. Barcelona, Sevilla and Villarreal all failed to win last night, so Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping to prove that La Liga clubs still have what it takes to mix it with the elite in European football.

Madrid beat Celta Vigo 5-2 at the weekend, and currently sit top of La Liga although they’re level on points with both Valencia and Atletico Madrid. Inter drew 2-2 with Sampdoria at the weekend, and despite having won the Scudetto last season are much-changed. They sit fourth in Serie A, two points behind Roma.

Ancelotti opted to start Thibaut Courtois in goal, behind a back four of Dani Carvajal, Eder Militao, Nacho and David Alaba. Fede Valverde will join Casemiro and Luka Modric in a midfield triumvirate, supporting a front three of Lucas Vazquez, Vinicius Junior and the red-hot Karim Benzema, captain for the evening.
