Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Borussia Monchengladbach Y Shakhtar Donetsk were paired in Group B of the Champions League. At this point in October, the first two days of the group stage have already been played and the result of the classification at this time could not be more surprising.
Few could expect that after two rounds, the solo leader of the group would be Shakhtar Donetsk. With four points, the Ukrainians are in first place, while Inter and Gladbach are tied with two points for second and third places. Closing Group B as bottom is Real Madrid.
The white team, precisely, fell on the first day against Shakhtar in the Of Stefano. Those of Donetsk They went 0-3 ahead at half-time, but in the second half there was a Madrid reaction and the game ended with 2-3, without being able to complete the comeback.
Six days later, and after having disputed The classic in the Camp Nou, a duel that the meringues took against the eternal rival, Real Madrid once again showed its deficiencies and scored, on this occasion, two goals down. It was in the last minutes in the Borussia park when the reaction came and first Benzema and later Casemiro they tied the game.
Regarding the other Borussia Mönchengladbach game, the German team drew 0-0 in the game that served as their debut in this edition of the Champions League against Inter Milan, while nerazzurri signed their second consecutive tabas against Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 2.
Two key duels
Real Madrid plays being or not being in its fetish competition in the month of November. The double confrontation against Inter Milan will mark what their participation in the 2020/2021 season in the Champions League will be for both teams.
On November 3 Achraf, Lautaro Martinez and company visit the White House. Both teams urgently need the points, as they could even miss out on the round of 16. Perhaps the worst imaginable scenario, but that if they draw the two duels between them and then fail to win against Shakhtar and Gladbach, it could end up occurring.
Right now Real Madrid still continues to depend on itself. If he wins his remaining four matches to complete the group stage, the thirteen-time champion of Europe will be in the hype of eighths. If they fall against Inter at home, they would still depend on themselves, but they should practically count every game as a victory to achieve the goal.
The pass will be more complicated if they cannot beat Inter Milan either at home or at the Giuseppe Meazza. So the Whites will have to win their remaining two games, but also keep an eye on what their rivals do in their respective matches.
If Real Madrid beat Inter in both Spanish and Italian territory, they would not have a pass to the second round guaranteed either, although yes, it would be closer. They should still score at least one win and pull out the calculator depending on what happens in the rest of the games. There are still four days left and the outlook is far from clear for any of the Group B teams, not even for the leader.
