Barcelona vs Inter will be one of the most classic UEFA Champions League games this Wednesday, which will be held at Camp Nou, in Barcelona. Since in Group F first round ended with all draws, both teams have a great opportunity to take the leading place if they will play as good as it is possible. Very interesting, that two strong leaders from each team Philippe Coutinho and Ivan Perisic joined on-loan Bayern Munich this summer transfer window. Read our thoughts about this interesting UEFA Champions League Group F 2nd Round Barcelona vs Inter match, here below.

Last season, these teams also met during the Group stage in Champions League. Internazionale played much worse so, Barcelona took an advantage ver them playing at home finishing match with 2:0. Moreover, Inter at home failed to win, and even save the 1 point by Icardi late goal, as Inter were behind. In general, Barcelona has better h2h statistics, however, this season Inter showing much stronger football and results so far.

Barcelona

Last year, Barcelona lost to CL Champions Liverpool in Sem-final stage. This year, they are aiming at least final, however, struggling so far to show their best football. At home Barca won 3 out of 3 La Liga matches, however, conceded at least 1 goal in each. They play a great and very productive in the attack, at home, however, they need to strengthen defence if they want to compete to stronger opponents. In LL Barca stands at 4th place with already 2 losses against Granada and Athletic Bilbao.

In Champions League, they played already against Borussia Dortmund. The result of the match was very unpredictable since both clubs like to play attacking football. To see the 0:0 result, in the end, was very surprising. During the whole game, Barcelona shoot only once in a goal, which is a really bad result for such a strong and technical squad. Lionel Messi started the match only at 59th minute changed 16 years old Anssumane Fati. At 57th minute of the game, Marc-Andre ter Stegen saved a penalty and obviously become the key player of the game for Barcelona. Play without the biggest century leader is very hard, so Barcelona needs to find other leaders in the squad. Especially, playing against such a strong opponent this season as Internazionale.

Catalonians will play this game without Samuel Umtiti and Jordi Alba for sure. Moreover, Ousmane Dembele, Ansu Fati and Lionel Messi are still under question.

Inter

Inter Milan last season were in one group with Barcelona also. They failed to reach the second round and were promoted to UEFA Europa League, as they took 3rd place. However, even in lower league competition, they lost already at a round of 16 against Eintracht Frankfurt, which strongly played in Semi-final of this tournament.

The team from Milan pleases with their game throughout this entire season. La Beneamata is unbeaten this season as they played only one draw in Champions League against Slavia Prague and won all other Serie A matches. In Italy, they show the best defence in the league as they conceded only 2 goals in 6 games. Moreover, they are second by scoring goals (13, as only Napoli and Atalanta scored by 15. In general, we have not seen such a strong Inter Milan for a long time. Both Antonio Conte and Romelu Lukaku helped them in this, who this season got away from England. The main thing, that Internazionale will play with the fully prepared squad without injured or suspended players.
