The match

Real Sociedad make their return to the Champions League after a 10-year absence when they host last year’s finalists Inter in Group D. La Real finished fourth in La Liga last season, granting them automatic entry into the group stages. The last time they competed at this stage was in the 2013/14 campaign which saw them finish rock-bottom of the group. They’ll now attempt to navigate what looks to be an extremely well-balanced group with Benfica and Salzburg rounding out the other competitors. It’s been a slow start for Real Sociedad in the 2023/24 La Liga season as they came out of the gates with three consecutive draws, two of which came on home soil. They would recover with a 5-3 home win over Grenada before falling 2-1 away to Real Madrid in what was a very competitive encounter. The oddsmakers have Imanol Alguacil’s side as underdogs on their home patch, clearly not rating too highly the team’s improved recent performances.

Inter Milan are red-hot to start the new season and look to be separating themselves from the pack as the best team in Serie A. They finished third in the standings last season but look good value to recapture the Scudetto after lifting the league title in 2020/21. Inter put together a superb run in last year’s Champions League, surpassing expectations to make the final for the first time since their triumphant 2009/10 campaign. The Nerazzurri have a perfect four wins from four games in the Serie A while already amassing a goal differential of +12. They’ve conceded just one goal so far, which came in the team’s most recent 5-1 thrashing of rivals AC Milan on the weekend. With nine goals scored in their last two appearances, the bookmakers clearly rate Simone Inzaghi’s men to get the victory here.

Key Statistics

  • While Inter’s start has certainly been impressive, only one of their four matches so far has come away from home.
  • Last season, Inter went 1-1-1 away from home in the group stage and won only nine of 19 away Serie A fixtures.
  • Real Sociedad lost only three of 19 home La Liga fixtures last season, winning 11 and drawing the remaining five.
  • Dating back to the previous season, Real Socidad are unbeaten in their last 13 home games across all competitions.

The bet of our experts

Inter’s fast start to the season combined with Real Sociedad stumbling out of the gates has the books laying the visitors as understandable favorites. However, we believe La Real are being somewhat undervalued here. They proved last season to be a formidable side at the Anoeta and are carrying a lengthy unbeaten home record into this matchup. Real Sociedad should prove to be a stern test for Inter Milan in what will be their first real challenge on the road. Back the home side to at least avoid defeat in this one. Our Read Sociedad vs Inter Milan prediction is for Real Sociedad on the double chance.
