The Inter Milan vs Real Madrid live stream should be a highlight of Matchday 1 of the group stage of Champions League 2021/22 action. However, these two grand old teams both have a few selection problems to contend with, so how the game goes is anyone's guess.

Real Madrid's situation is particularly bleak, with first teamers Gareth Bale, Toni Kroos and Luka Jovic all missing out through injury, and Ferland Mendy also sidelined. 

Inter defender Alessandro Bastoni has been passed fit to play and joins Stefan De Vrij and MIlan Skriniar in the defense. They'll have the unenviable job of keeping out Karim Benzema.

Not that Inter are without a forward threat of their own, with the veteran Edin Dzeko partnered by Lautaro Martinez and the likes of Ivan Perisic also on the field.

Here's how they line up:

Inter Milan: Handanovic, Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni, Darmian, Barella, Brozovic, Calhanoglu, Perisic, Dzeko, Lautaro

Real Madrid: Courtois, Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Nacho, Casemiro, Modric, Valverde, Vinicius, Benzema, Lucas Vazquez.
