Accordingly, it is only for the home side to something that need in the distance duel with BVB the same result as the black and yellow to solve the ticket for the knockout stages. If Borussia lose to Prague at home, “La Beneamata” is automatically through.
If the Germans draw, Inter needs one point too. And if the Favre Elf expected a home win, “Il Biscione” needs a victory against the Catalans, which is easier said than done given the fact that Barca has not lost a group game in the premier class for three years.
Nevertheless, Inter Milan against Barcelona in the odds of bookmakers is very clearly in the role of favorites. No wonder, because the men of Ernesto Valverde are currently fully focused on the championship fight in Spain and mentally certainly already at the groundbreaking Clásico on 18 December.
The line-up in the Blaugrana 5-2 home win on Saturday night showed that there could be only one B-team on the pitch in San Siro, an important factor at Inter Milan versus Barcelona.
However, a factor that the bookmakers have included in their odds design, which is why the classic 3-way system is actually not playable. After all, we get a 1.68 at the top when we play tip 1 at Barcelona against Barcelona.
So a odds boost has to come from. We therefore combine Nerazzurri’s overall home performance, which is quite likely because of the starting position, with what we believe is the very likely market “Both teams to score: yes”.
Inter Milan – Statistics & Current Form
Inter Milan are still a long way from the opening match of the premier league match, as Nicolò Barella’s last-minute goal saved Nerazzurri a 1-1 draw with Underdog Slavia Prague at the last minute.
If this had been an expected three-way, so would now at least already the draw against the Blaugrana for the round of 16 enough, which would certainly be a much cheaper mortgage for this second leg in San Siro.
However, this is no longer the reason why Antonio Conte’s selection must assume that the Czechs will not be supported in the Signal Iduna Park and thus need a home win.
The three-time overall winner of the Champions League, after all, can go with a big chest in the last round of the preliminaries, because the Nerazzurri defended their leading position in the Serie A table at the weekend in the Fernduell with Juventus.
Although “La Beneamata” did not come from a goalless draw at home to AS Roma, but on the day after the Bianconeri suffered their first defeat of the season with 1: 3 at Lazio, that was finally a point won by the Inter is two points ahead after 15 of 38 match days.
Everything points to better times for the 18-time Italian champion, who has not won anything since the Coppa Italia overall victory in 2011 and recently was not even regularly represented in the premier class.
“Let’s upgrade and all go together! Against Barca we need the entire team and the audience. The boys have to be supported. ” – Antonio Conte at La Gazzetta dello Sport
Speaking of Champions League: There are only two victories from the last nine games (three draws, four defeats), so it is quite surprising that Inter Milan is so favored against Barcelona in the odds of bookmakers.
Rather, the fact probably plays in it, that it ran in San Siro against Spanish teams mostly very well. Not one of their last nine home games against La Liga clubs has lost “La Beneamata”. All in all, they lost only 19 home games against Alavés in the 2000/01 UEFA Cup (nine wins, nine draws).
Nevertheless, last time in the round of 16 of the Champions League was “Il Biscione” in the season 2011/12, when there was then against Olympique Marseille terminus. That round, over which it has never been since in the Europa League since then and in which the Italians failed in the spring of 2019 to Eintracht Frankfurt.
The 0-1 defeat against the SGE was after all the only defeat in European home games under the last nine matches in San Siro (five wins, three draws). Now it is time to secure the round of 16 before the Fiorentina standings are again at stake in Serie A next Sunday.
Bitter only: Especially in the game forward is not much rotation possible. Not only backup striker Alexis Sánchez is currently injured, but also in the creative control center in the central midfield fall with Nicolò Barella, Stefano Sensi and Roberto Gagliardini three important men. Antonio Candreva is also injured.
Expected formation of Inter Milan:
↪ Handanovic – Skriniar – de Vrij – Godín – Valero – Vecino – Briaghi – Brozovic – Candreva – Martínez – Lukaku
Will not play: Barella N (Foot Injury), Gagliardini R. (Knee Injury), Sanchez A. (Ankle Injury), Sensi S. (Thigh Injury)

Barcelona – Statistics & Current Form
With much tailwind also the FC Barcelona travels to Italy in the Giuseppe Meazza Stadium, where there was never an away win against the Nerazzurri. The big advantage of today’s match: The Blaugrana is not dependent on a point win, let alone on an away win.
Even with a blistering defeat, the ticket to the round of 16 would be solved as group winners, as Barca has already brought four points ahead of the pursuers Milan and Dortmund – even though there was an unexpected loss at home against Slavia Prague in the goalless draw from the fourth matchday.
In La Liga burned against promoted RCD Mallorca on Saturday night anyway, at any time something. Instead, the MSG attacking trio of Messi, Luis Suárez and Antoine Griezmann could once enter the scoresheet in the 5-2 win by the bank.
It was captain Messi who could crown a perfect week with a three-pack. The weekend before, it was his golden away goal at Atlético Madrid four minutes before the end of the game that secured the Blaugrana their 1-0 away win. Only two days later he was awarded the Ballon d’Or for the sixth time in his career.
The fact that Inter Milan is not overly prone to blaugrana at Barcelona is rather due to the fact that “La Pulga” is very likely to have a creative break and is out of place in San Siro. Finally, the Blaugrana in La Liga are two very important games before.
On Saturday at Real Sociedad it is important to further improve the not overly good away balance. Only four of the eight league games in foreign places could win the Catalans so far (one draw, three defeats). Four days later, Clásico faces Real Madrid in Camp Nou.
Two more groundbreaking games in defense of the championship title and national hegemony, which is why rotation is expected in this irrelevant Champions League game.
The explosive thing: with Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, Arthur, Nélson Semedo and Jordi Alba missing five performers injured, so that the Catalans can not go around with a B-Elf of players at the start, in all other teams regulars but actually should not have the usual quality on the pitch.
Nevertheless, a few psychological issues are also at stake for the Blaugrana. If a defeat can be prevented, Barca would remain unbeaten in the 13th group game in series and would have survived the preliminary round for the third time in succession without defeat.
If the Catalans even the away win succeed, it would be the 150th victory ever in the Champions League. A border that has so far only reached rivals Real Madrid.
However, it is also clear that the team of Ernesto Valverde would like to take these landmarks, but will not be willing to force them at any cost.
And in general, out in the premier league has generally been only five wins from their last 15 games (six draws, four defeats) and, in Italy in particular, not overly convincing for the blaugrana. Only six of the previous 24 away games with representatives of Serie A could win the five-time overall winner of the Champions League.
Expected formation of Barcelona:
↪ ter Stegen – Firpo – Araújo – Todibo – Wagué – Sarsanedas – Vidal – Collado – Alená – Fati – Pérez
Will not play: Alba J. (Muscle Injury), Arthur (Injury), Dembele O.(Thigh Injury), Messi L. (Coach’s decision), Pique G.
(Coach’s decision), Roberto S. (Coach’s decision), Semedo N. (Calf Injury)

Head to head: 1 – 3 – 5
So far, there have been nine clashes between Inter Milan and FC Barcelona, and with five games won, the Blaugrana is clearly showing in the resulting head-to-head record. Thus, the Nerazzurri bring it only to a single victory against the Catalans, while three draws round off the direct comparison.
After all, although Inter lost all five away games in Camp Nou – including the first leg of 2 October 2019 with 1: 2 – but has remained unbeaten in the previous four home games in San Siro against the Spanish record Cup winner.
In the last home game, “Il Biscione” scored a 1-1 draw in the group stage of the 2018/19 season. Before that, there was the 3-1 home win in the semi-finals of the 2009/10 season, the first and only victory of the Italians, who thus stormed the final – and in the end, as you know, got the Henkel pot.
Inter Milan vs Barcelona Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters
At Inter Milan against Barcelona, the prediction is influenced primarily by the formation of the Blaugrana. After Ernesto Valverde did not spare a single regular player against RCD Mallorca, it is very likely that all will be paused in San Siro by the bank away.
This is a great opportunity for the Italians, who would also need a home victory against the Blaugrana in the event of a home win over Slavia Prague to solve the first knockout round for the first time in eight years.
The live score from the Dortmund Signal Iduna Park is likely to play a role. If it turns out ahead of time that BVB wins the game against Slavia Prague, the 18-time Italian champions finally know that only the victory over Barca leads to the last sixteen.
The Nerazzurri are considered favored, since some players from the B-team in the starting eleven are expected at Barca. Because the bookmakers have considered this, however, the classic 3-way system in this game is largely unusable.
