Inter vs Barcelona match preview and prediction

The Nerazzurri’s Champions League fate will be decided by Inter vs Barcelona. Both the teams have the same points and will battle for the 2nd position. However, both sides have had a contrasting start to the season as Inter are currently down to 9th position after four defeats in Serie A already. Their latest 2-1 loss came against AS Roma at the San Siro. While Barcelona are sitting at top of the table in La Liga with just one draw and only one goal conceded so far in the league.

The Catalans are having a great season so far to back their brilliant transfer window. Xavi’s side look like the favorites in this competition despite having failures in past years. This rejuvenated Barcelona will pose a tough match to already struggling Inter Milan. Their star-signing Lewandowski firing on all cylinders, and will be keen to keep up his form against a currently weak defense of Inter.

Inter vs Barcelona: team news, tactics, and prediction

The Nerazzurri will again miss Brozovic, and Inzaghi will have a headache of who to start. Asllani had an average performance against Roma, while Gagliardini lacks technical quality. Inter will have to be pumped to win every second-balls as Barcelona will be looking to keep the ball. Inzaghi will also bring Onana back for the Champions League game, which will give more assurance at the back. Inter should use a compact mid-block to give less space to Barcelona and be clinical after getting possession of the ball.

Barcelona have some injury issues in the camp after the international break. They will miss Araujo, Kounde, and Bellerin, so Roberto could fill in at the right back. Dimarco can take advantage of the flank as he is a good form of late for the club and national team. Also, De Jong and Depay are out as well so the Catalans have fewer options from the bench.


Considering their recent form, and the opponent, it will be tough for Inter to get a win even at home.

Inter Milan 1-1 Barcelona.
