Champions League / FC Barcelona vs Inter Milan – The most interesting match in the Group F will be played at the Camp Nou where Barcelona meets Inter. Neither of the two teams won in the first round, or more precisely they drew, but Barcelona had played a difficult away match. Inter slipped at home but it plays perfectly in the Italian Serie A where it has maximal six victories. Barcelona struggles in La Liga, while last year Barca won Inter 2-0 at home in the Champions League.
Game FC Barcelona vs Inter Milan begins 02.10.2019 at 21:00 CET
Barcelona plays better a little bit recently but it is still below expectations about the Catalan giant. They are lucky in La Liga since their competitors also achieve variable results. Barcelona was already defeated twice, both times away when it scored no goals. They draw away with Osasuna and only in the previous round they won for the first time outside their stadium. They have defeated Getafe by 2-0 with a weakened team since Messi, J. Alba and Dembele didn’t play, while Umtiti and young striker Fati were injured.
They have managed to win for the second time in a row and for the first time without receiving a goal after they defeated Villarreal 2-1 at the Camp Nou last week. They started modestly in the Champions League as well, although one point won in Dortmund was a good achievement. They were lucky since ter Stegen have defended a penalty. Messi and J. Alba will probably not be ready for this match, and Dembele and Umtiti are definitely out of action.
Probable lineups Barcelona: ter Stegen – Semedo, Pique, Lenglet, Firpo – Busquets, de Jong, Rakitic – Perez, L. Suarez, Griezmann
Everything would be perfect for Inter if the first round of the Champions League had never happened. Then met Slavia Prague at home and they were absolute favourites to win, especially since they started excellently in the Serie A. However, it needed just a bit to lose the match in which the rival surprised them with an offensive tactic. The guests had a lead for a long time and but Barella has managed to equalised near the end of match for the final 1-1. It was a big mishap when it is known that ahead of them are matches with Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund, so it is clear that Inter won’t have an easy time all the way till the end of the group phase. That's why they sought console in the Serie A where they didn't make a wrong move in first six rounds.
They didn’t play all matches equally well but they won them all, which is why they are leaders in the table with maximall 18 points. Reigning champion Juventus has two points fewer, whom they are going to face next Sunday. Before that they have to play this difficult away match that comes after away victory over Sampdoria by 3-1. A. Sanchez had scored the first goal for Inter but he was also sent off so they had a player less in the second half. The team was changed a bit but now the strongest available goes on the pitch.
Probable lineups Inter: S. Handanovic – Godin, de Vrij, Skriniar – D'Ambrosio, Barella, Brozovic, Sensi, Asamoah – L. Martinez, R. Lukaku
Betting Pick: Barcelona vs Inter
Barcelona always plays maximally offensively at the Camp Nou and that is how will play now, although Inter will probably have a different tactic. The guests would be most probably more than happy to pull off a draw since they are aware that attempt to score a goal more won’t finish well for them, which is why we don’t expect too many goals in Barcelona.
Pick: Under 3 goals
Odds: 1.87 at bethard (down to 1.77 can be played)
