Inter Milan got drawn in the UCL group of death with Bayern Munich and Barcelona. The Nerazzurri will have to face two formidable sides in the group stages of the Champions League. Inter Milan will have to bring their A-game in the Champions League right from the start. They managed to qualify for the knockout stages last year, breaking the ten-year drought. Now, the whole squad will have to work hard to get a spot in the Round of 16.
Bayern Munich is possibly the strongest opponent that Inter will face this season. The Bundesliga giants are favorites in this competition and have one of the most talented managers, Julian Nagelsmann. But Inter Milan will have a chance in this match if they manage to keep their defense tight. Villarreal knocked the German giants out in the last season over two legs. Bayern lost their star striker Lewandoski, but they have replaced him with Sadio Mane, who has hit the ground running. Gravenberch and Mazraoui are some underrated signings while they signed De Ligt to replace Sule.
Inter Milan to face Bayern Munich and Barcelona in UCL
Barcelona is another tough fixture for Inter Milan as the La Liga giants have made some big signings in the summer. It will be a fascinating game as both Inter and Barca like to keep possession. With Lewandoski in attack and improvement in defense with Kounde and Christensen, Barca are a team to beat. Inter will have to defend well in tight spaces as players like Pedri and De Jong can break through the middle. Inzaghi has said that his side will be consistent in the Champions League, and will focus on every minor detail.
Viktoria Plzen from the Czech Republic is the last team that Inter will face in the group stages. The Nerazzurri can not afford to drop points in this fixture as it will make it hard for them to go to the knockout stages.
