Inter Milan and Barcelona face off on Tuesday in Group C UEFA Champions League soccer showdown at San Siro.
Inter Milan currently sit in 2nd place in the standings, having picked up three points. Inter Milan faced off against Viktoria Plzen on September 13th, and they were able to secure the 2-0 victory. Inter had 72 percent of the possession and eight shots on target on the way to the easy victory. Marcelo Brozovic is still dealing with a thigh injury, and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. When he hasn’t played, Inter hasn’t played as well, and they will need other guys to step up to fill the void. Romelu Lukaku is dealing with a thigh injury, and he also won’t be able to go in this game.
Barcelona currently sit in 2nd place in the standings, having picked up three points. Barcelona’s last game in the Champions League came against Bayern, and they were defeated 2-0. They had 54 percent of the possession and four shots on target, but it wasn’t enough, as they couldn’t find the back of the net. Barcelona’s last game came on Saturday against Barcelona, and they were able to secure the 1-0 victory in that game. Barcelona is super banged up heading into this game, and they will be without Memphis Depay, Frenkie De Jong and Jules Kounde. Ronald Araujo is also dealing with a thigh injury and there is a chance he might miss the rest of the season.
This game is going to come down to the two defenses, and the team that has the advantage is Barcelona. Inter Milan’s defense is a big issue, and that is not something that is good news against a team like Barcelona. Look for Barcelona to score a couple of goals and that will be enough to secure the victory. Back Barcelona on the money line.
