Football fans in China will relish their chance to witness top players from Real Madrid such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale amongst others in action as the Spanish club face Italian giants Inter Milan at Tianhe Stadium in Guangzhou on Monday.
The match in Guangzhou is going to be Real Madrid's first match in China, following their Australia campaign, where they lost to Roma on penalties and defeated Manchester City.
Real Madrid, beaming with confidnce, face Inter Milan after thrashing Manchester City 4-1 at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday, where Karim Benzema, Cristiano Ronaldo, Pepe and Denis Cheryshev found the back of the net.
The stars of Real Madrid cannot afford to take Inter Milan lighlty as the club also possess a number of stars such as Mateo Kovacic and Martin Montoya. Though Inter Milan might have lost their last game against AC Milan, manager Mancini fielded a second string side, which fought hard, but lost 1-0 after an amazing strike by Philippe Mexes.
Things are not going to be the same on Monday as Inter Milan are expected to start with their key players against Real Madrid, hence, the game between the two could lead to some special moments as well.
Both sides will look at such games to test their team strength ahead of the respective domestic competition. Real Madrid manager Rafa Benitez feels playing against Inter Milan is an incentive to them.
"We're here to play an important game. We're up against a very strong, important team. Playing these types of games against opponents as important as Inter Milan is an incentive for us," said Rafa Benitez.
Benitez may not have finalised his playing eleven, but he has plenty of players to pick and choose from amongst the number of star players at his disposal. James has also joined the team squad to face Inter Milan.
"As a coach, I'm really happy to have quality players like James and Isco. If we want to be competitive, they have to give 100%. I prefer to have top-level players and they both make it difficult for me. James' attitude has looked really good to me, but he has only recently arrived. Tomorrow we'll make decisions on who is going to play and how long they're each going to play," added Benitez.
