This game presents Inter Milan with a chance to step one foot in the Champions League next round, can they take it? Barcelona have also started getting their mojo back, would they allow Inter get the better of them in this game?
This Inter Milan team continues to get better every week. They beat Lazio in their last game to go on a 7 games winning streak in the Serie A. They have also won 9 of their last 10 games in all competition, their only loss in that period of time coming at the hands of Barcelona in their last Champions League game. The Italians have netted 8 times in their last two league games, and they come into this game having scored 20 times in their last 10 games, so they have confidence ahead of this clash.
Inter rested their top marksman, Mauro Icardi for the weekend and they still scored 5 goals, they would also have the pleasure of playing Ragna Naingalon in this game after he missed their defeat at Barcelona.
Barcelona have been without Lionel Messi in their last 4 games, but haven’t done too badly in his absence. They have scored 13 goals since he last stepped his foot on a pitch for them. Luis Suarez has scored 5 of those goals, and a late goal from him helped them beat Rayo Vallecano at the weekend to remain top of La Liga.
Barcelona have some defensive issues that Inter Milan could exploit. They have kept just a single clean sheet in their last 6 away games, and 3 of those matches have seen them concede at least 2 goals.
