Inter vs Real Sociedad: Preview, kick-off time, and where to watch on TV and online – Champions League 2023/24

Inter and Real Sociedad face a straight fight to see who can finish top of their Champions League group as the two sides come into this clash on the same points, with qualification secured.


The Champions League Group D finale will see the top two sides that have already qualified for the next round, Inter and Real Sociedad, face off for the group’s top spot at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza. Both sides enter the game on 11 points. Having drawn the reverse fixture, whoever is victorious on Tuesday will win the group. 

Inter are fully in their stride currently, overcoming whoever and whatever is in front of them. Even against Benfica, when they went 3-0 down, they still came back and showed the quality of their side.

Real Sociedad also come into this game in a rich vein of form. Since their loss against Barcelona, they have been unbeaten and their 3-0 dismantling of Villarreal at the weekend showed they are a fine side who could pose a rotated Inter threat.

Inter vs Real Sociedad: Predicted line-ups

Both sides are already through to the Round of 16 of the Champions League. Therefore, changes are expected.

As such, Simone Inzaghi will field a similar eleven to the one that drew 3-3 against Benfica on Champions League Group D Matchday 5, although defensive changes will be likely given there are injuries in that part of the squad.

For the visitors, there are not many changes on the way. Former AC Milan striker Andre Silva is set to be welcomed back into the starting eleven, ahead of Umar Sadiq. Mikel Oyarzabal is also due to return from the start. 

Inter predicted lineup vs Real Sociedad (3-5-2): Audero; Bisseck, Acerbi, Bastoni; Cuadrado, Frattesi, Asllani, Sensi, Augusto; Sanchez, Arnautovic.

Real Sociedad predicted lineup vs Inter (4-3-3): Remiro; Odriozola, Zubeldia, Pacheco, Tierney; Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino; Kubo, Silva, Oyarzabal.
