Tip: Inter +2
Units: 1/5
Odds: -167

Opposing Barcelona at the Nou Camp isn’t for the faint-hearted, especially when you consider that they blew Tottenham away at Wembley when winning 4-2 in their previous Champions League game.

Barca have also enjoyed an 8-2 victory over Huesca this season, although it should be noted that Girona and Athletic Bilbao both secured a draw at the Nou Camp earlier in the campaign and this clash comes at a difficult time for the Catalan side.

The clash against Internazionale follows hard on the heels of a home match against Sevilla and just a few days before the first Clasico of the season, with a match against Real Madrid always hugely significant for a myriad of reasons.

Ernesto Valverde will have had to assess several of his players after they returned from an international break and Barcelona will be facing an Inter Milan side who have shown plenty of courage in the competition thus far.

Inter have fallen behind in their matches against Tottenham and PSV before recovering themselves to win the encounters by a 2-1 scoreline and they’re now sitting almost as pretty with six points on the board.

The Italian side will feel confident of getting something from this game and might be able to keep the scoreline close even if they lose. We like the idea of getting with the visitors having a two goal start and that means money back even if they lose by a two goal margin.

Anything closer and we win our bet, with Inter having gone into Sunday’s derby with Milan off the back of six straight victories and those kind of results breed their own level of confidence. 

Mauro Icardi is once again firing in the goals and has enjoyed a recent purple patch which has seen five goals plundered in as many games, while Barcelona will want to rest players during a hectic schedule.
