Match Preview of Barcelona vs Inter Milan

Inter Milan are currently in seventh place in the Serie A standings and have been plagued by inconsistency so far this season. The Nerazzurri edged Sassuolo to an important 2-1 victory over the weekend and will look to achieve a similar result in this fixture.

Barcelona failed to progress through the group stage in the Champions League last season, and the club are facing that possibility again this term, with a total of three points from three matches leaving them third in Group C, three points behind second-placed Inter and six from leaders Bayern Munich.

Xavi's side opened their group-stage campaign with a 5-1 victory over Viktoria Plzen on September 7 but have lost their last two in the competition, going down 2-0 at Bayern before the loss to Inter at San Siro, with Hakan Calhanoglu scoring the only goal of the contest late in the first half.

Barcelona will be aware of the importance of winning Wednesday's contest, and they will be pleased to be back on home soil, having not lost at Camp Nou in any competition since May.

While it has been a struggle in the Champions League this season, the Catalan outfit have been excellent in La Liga, making it seven straight victories on Sunday night courtesy of a 1-0 success over Celta Vigo, with Pedri scoring the only goal of the contest in the 17th minute.

Our Predicted Lineups

Barcelona possible starting lineup: Ter Stegen; Roberto, Pique, E Garcia, Alonso; Gavi, Busquets, Pedri; Dembele, Lewandowski, Fati

Inter Milan possible starting lineup:Onana; Skriniar, De Vrij, Bastoni; Dumfries, Barella, Calhanoglu, Mkhitaryan, Dimarco; L Martinez, Dzeko

Who will win the match?

We say Barcelona 2-0 Inter Milan. Barcelona have experienced a slump after the international break and have a few issues to address ahead of the game. The Catalans cannot afford to slip into the Europa League this season and have a point to prove this week.
