Inter are third in Group B with two points from two games a point ahead of the Spanish Champions who last in the group with one point.

Lukaku scored Inter’s both goals in a 2-2 draw with Borussia Monchengladbach earning them a point in their first match of Group B.

On a good news, Inter has welcomed back Aexis Sanchez who returned to training this week after sitting out the past three matches.

However, Inter coach Antonio Conte said that the former Manchester United striker is unlikely to start in Madrid.

On the other hand, Madrid will be without defender Eder Militao who tested positive for coronavirus as they seek to get their first win in the competition.

Real have struggled to find form in Europe, picking up just one point from two matches.
