Inter will look to carry forward their serious form from Serie A

Having had a fantastic season so far under Simone Inzaghi, Inter are one of Europe’s best sides this season. Currently, occupying the top spot in the league, they have maintained a 10-point distance from the second place. Inter will look to keep their same touch in the Champions League. They are playing at home and their excellent form is cherry on the top.

There have been a number of injuries at Atletico Madrid this season. Simeone has done a remarkable job this season to put Atletico Madrid in the running for the league title with the team sitting third. After two consecutive losses in the previous two matches, they bounced back in the last match to register an impressive win against Las Palmas. A brace from Llorente, Correa and a goal from Depay helped the side earn the three points.

Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid)
