FC Barcelona will play at home as they take on Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League. The match will be played at the Camp Nou.
Inter Milan have been in outstanding form this season and that has resulted in the team being top of the Serie A ladder. The additions of new players like Lukaku and Godin have increased the quality of the team significantly and the results are evident. In their last outing, Inter Milan defeated Sampdoria 3-1 away from home. Alexis Sanchez showed his quality by scoring for Inter Milan. Inter had a poor start to their Champions League campaign as they only managed a 1-1 draw in their opening game but the team should be confident in their ability to bounce back.
Looking at FC Barcelona, the Spanish giants have struggled this season and remain 4th in La Liga. Leo Messi has struggled with injuries and the team looks fragile without the Argentine superstar. FC Barcelona won their previous match as they defeated Getafe 2-0 away from home. Luis Suarez was the star performer for FC Barcelona. It is unclear whether Leo Messi will play this match although reports suggest that the winger is attempting to return to the side for this fixture. FC Barcelona only managed a 0-0 draw against Borussia Dortmund in their previous Champions League outing so the team can’t afford to lose this fixture.
Inter Milan and FC Barcelona played each other twice in the Champions League last season. The match in Milan ended as a draw while FC Barcelona won the match at Camp Nou. It is important to note that Inter Milan have significantly strengthened their squad from last season.
This should be a high-quality match since Inter Milan and FC Barcelona both possess outstanding players. Inter Milan have been in better form than FC Barcelona and the Italian side seems to be playing with more structure and confidence. It will be tough for Inter Milan to win at the Camp Nou but I see them having enough to leave this match with a point. I am predicting this match to end as a draw.
