Inter Milan v Barcelona Champions League betting preview and tips
These two teams occupy the box seat as far as Champions League Group B is concerned, with Barcelona having won all three matches which means that qualification is virtually assured.
The Catalan side are without Lionel Messi after the superstar recently broke his arm although it didn’t stop Barca beating Internazionale in their most recent European clash and will now head to the San Siro bidding for a repeat win.
Barcelona are clearly not a one-player team and dismantled Tottenham 4-2 away featuring star performances from Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Rakitic, both of whom were on the scoresheet.
It should be noted that Barca don’t need to win this match at this moment in time, with the Catalan side likely to be content enough with a draw in Milan which would see them stay at arm’s length before a final couple of matches against PSV and Spurs.
Inter are clearly no mugs and were enjoying an excellent winning run before losing at the Nou Camp, with Luciano Spalletti’s side enjoying a last-gasp 1-0 victory over Milan recently.
They also showed excellent character to come from behind and land wins over Spurs and PSV, with a point putting them on seven and that could make them virtually unassailable considering that the Dutch team still have to visit the San Siro.
Mauro Icardi is an operator that can cause problems on home soil, with Barcelona a bigger price without Messi than they would be without the little maestro who was demonstrating that he was at the peak of his powers before sustaining an injury.
