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

Having made it to the final last season, Inter are aiming for another big year in the Champions League and they get underway with a trip to face Real Sociedad.


Inter’s start to the season has been magnificent, being one of only two sides in Serie A to maintain a 100% record. As such, there is an expectation to match that form in the Champions League and that will begin with Matchday 1’s away fixture against Real Sociedad in Group D.

After their run in the 2022/23 Champions League, Simone Inzaghi and his squad will have their sights set on another exciting season in Europe. The Nerazzurri are the favourites to progress from Group D and earning three points against Real Sociedad at the Reale Arena would set them off on the right foot.

La Real currently also remain unbeaten in La Liga, but they have won only once in their opening four games.

Real Sociedad vs Inter: Predicted line-ups

Inter’s exceptional start to the season can largely be attributed to Simone Inzaghi‘s tactical set-up. The side has seemingly found the perfect balance of attack and defence and looks set with the formation that has worked so well for them.

Summer signing Benjamin Pavard has yet to play any minutes for the Nerazzurri so far this season. However, the Champions League could be a chance to earn some valuable minutes, even if that is as a substitute.

Real Sociedad predicted XI vs Inter (4-3-3): Remiro; Traore, Zubeldia, Le Normand, Tierney; Mendez, Zubimendi, Merino; Kubo, Oyarzabal, Barrenetxea

Inter predicted XI vs Real Sociedad (3-5-2): Sommer; Darmian, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; Martinez, Thuram
