Inter Milan vs Barcelona Betting Tips & Predictions
Internazionale have scrapped their way to second in Champions League Group F and their superior head-to-head record over Borussia Dortmund means that they simply need to match the German team’s result on Wednesday night.
On paper, Inter have the toughest task by far considering they entertain Barcelona while their group rivals are likely to beat Slavia Prague with something to spare, although the Italian side will face a Barca team who are already qualified.
Therefore, we can expect the visitors to the San Siro to be potentially going through the motions and that is reflected in the match odds which have Internazionale as very strong favourites to claim those precious three points.
Antonio Conte’s side are going along nicely in Serie A this season and this could finally be the campaign where Juventus’ stranglehold on the Scudetto title comes to an end.
Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are both scoring goals for fun, with the pair having combined beautifully to win at Slavia Prague in their latest match and they’ll relish the idea of going up against a weakened Barcelona side.
The Catalan side might give it the usual comments about fielding a competitive side although they have three La Liga clashes between this clash and the festive break and that includes a Clasico encounter against Real Madrid.
Therefore, we think Inter Milan are a decent bet to claim the spoils and join Barcelona in the last sixteen of the competition. It’s possible that the Italian title contenders might have had enough quality to beat the strongest outfit being fielded by the champions.
However, as it stands we think the odds are stacked in favour of a team who are massively improved under Conte and will bet them as a win single on the match odds to go through and push Dortmund into the Europa League.
