Inter Vs Barcelona: Predicted Lineups, How To Watch On TV Live Stream, Team News & Prediction

Inter will host Barcelona on Tuesday in the third round of Champions League group-stage fixtures of the season.

The two sides are tied for points in Group C, with Barcelona’s superior goal difference keeping them in the qualification spots, so this fixture is about as important as they come for both sides.

Inter come into this one having lost their last two games in all competitions, while Barcelona’s defeat to Bayern Munich last time out in Europe is the only blot on an otherwise perfect eight-game run for Xavi’s men.

Inter team news

Marcelo Brozovic remains sidelined with the thigh injury that he picked up on international duty, while a similar injury keeps striker Romelu Lukaku out of this one as well.

A decision will have to be made in goal, where Samir Handanovic’s performances have come under scrutiny recently. Summer signing Andre Onana has been playing in Europe this year and is likely to keep his place here.

Inter vs Barcelona score prediction

Inter haven’t looked like themselves this season. They’re struggling in Serie A and on a run of four defeats in their last six, and now they’ve got to cope without both Brozovic and Lukaku.

On the other hand, Barcelona are flying this season and have looked dominant against every opponent not named Bayern Munich. The addition of Robert Lewandowski has been a major catalyst for the team’s resurgence.

Xavi’s side are the favorites, but Inter have enough about them to cause a problem or two. Expect a tight game and three points heading back to Spain.

Prediction: Inter 1-2 Barcelona
