Barcelona Team News

After a rather bad last season for the club, Barcelona entered the new one considerably strengthened with ambitions to return the trophy of the Spanish champion to its showcases and to start the path of recent success in the Champions League with good performances in Europe.

Regarding La Liga, we can say that Xavi and his chosen ones are on the right track. For now, Barca achieved seven wins in the Spanish championship with one draw. After eight played rounds, they occupy the first place in the table thanks to an impressive goal difference of 20- 1, which means that, despite the same number of points as Real, they are ahead of the club from Madrid. The most significant credit for such an effective attack goes to Robert Lewandowski, who has been leading the Catalans’ attack in a fantastic way since this summer.

Regarding competing in the Champions League, the situation is significantly different. After three rounds, Barcelona registered only one victory against Viktoria Plzen. Despite good games against Bayern and Inter in those two visits, they did not manage to score a single goal.

The defeat at the San Siro set off the alarm in Barcelona, and only a win in the next match in front of their fans leaves Barca in the game for survival in the “group of death.”

Inter Team News

On the other hand, although before the start of the season, Inter was considered by many to be the primary candidate for winning the Scudetto, after a few rounds, it was already clear that something was not working correctly in the runner-up game. If we look at the fact that in Serie A, after nine rounds, they have already been defeated in 4 matches with 14 goals conceded, it is clear that the “Neroazuri” have a problem in defense.

Last week, they managed to register their second victory in the Champions League, with Hakan Calhanoglu’s goal at the very end of the first half, thus winning coach Simone Inzaghi’s stay on the bench with a minimal victory against Barca. With 6 points from 3 matches, they shifted the tension before the new clash to the side of the Spanish giant, which can represent a slight psychological advantage for the guests on Wednesday.

After winning in Europe at the weekend, Inter scored 1-2 away to Sassuolo, and the double scorer was Edin Džeko, with goals in the 44th and 75th minutes of the match hinted that better days are coming for Inter. With 15 points won in Serie A, they are currently in the 7th position in the table, which is even 8 points less than the leader Napoli.

H2H

This will be the 10th match between Barcelona and Inter. In the previous nine games, Barcelona had more success. They won 5 times, Inter was better in 2 games, while two matches ended in a draw.

Expected lineups:

Barcelona (4-3-3): Marc-Andre ter Stegen – Alejandro Balde – Eric Garcia – Gerard Pique – Sergi Roberto – Pedri – Sergio Busquets – Frenkie de Jong – Raphinha – OusmaneDembele – Robert Lewandowski

Inter (3-5-2): Andre Onana – Stefan de Vrij – Alessandro Bastoni – Milan Škriniar – Federico Dimarco – HakanCalhanoglu – Henrikh Mkhitaryan – NicoloBarella – Matteo Darmian – Lautaro Martinez – Edin Džeko

Barcelona vs. Inter Prediction

Barcelona is more successful in their head-to-head matches with Inter, winning 4 of their previous six games and just failing to score in the last round, despite looking very good on the pitch. Given that they have no right to a setback on Wednesday because they must win all three points to join the fight for the first two places in Group C, we expect Barca’s offensive from the very beginning and victory in this match.

On the other hand, Inter did not have the best start to the season even though they had top players on their team. In the previous six games in all competitions, they scored at least one goal per match, and they managed to do the same in the last four meetings with Barcelona, so we think they will succeed in the next game as well. That’s why we believe the most tempting combination is for both teams to score a goal in the match, so today, we will decide on that option.
