Barcelona are firing on all cylinders now

All eyes will be on Stadio Giuseppe Meazza Tuesday, Inter and Barcelona going head-to-head in what’s certainly the Champions League’s match of the round. Find the best props, Champions League betting, and Champions League odds in our sportsbook.

Inter struggling at the back

It’s too early in the Champions League season to call any game a critical match, but if Inter Milan fail to grab at least a point in this clash, they may be looking at an early exit here. With two rounds complete, they sit third in the standings, equal on points with Barcelona.

Inter Milan is also sitting ninth in the Serie A table at the moment, in poor form in recent months. Nerazzurri slumped to a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of AS Roma and will need to bounce back in this fixture.

As Inter have won only once in five matches with Barcelona in Milan, they will need to overcome precedent to gain the maximum number of points. There is every chance Bayern will widen the gap atop the UCL group by sweeping past Plzen, so these back-to-back matches against the Blaugrana could be decisive.

Due to a thigh injury on international duty, Inter will once again be without midfielder Marcelo Brozovic Tuesday. Meanwhile, Romelu Lukaku remains on the road to recovery (injured thigh), so either Edin Dzeko or Joaquin Correa will join Lautaro Martinez in the attacking line. This will be a tough test Tuesday. We won’t include the hosts in our soccer picks and parlays.

Barcelona a goal machine

Barcelona are currently at the top of the La Liga standings, and in impressive form under Xavi. The Catalan giants edged Mallorca, claiming an important 1-0 victory in their last game. They will need to achieve a similar result in this one. Robert Lewandowski was again on target, scoring his ninth goal of the domestic season. He also scored three in the Champions League so far, so if you’re betting online, start backing him in each of the matches.

Barcelona, meanwhile, travel to Italy without Memphis Depay, Frenkie De Jong\ and Jules Kounde, all injured in the Nations League last month. Ronald Araujo may miss the rest of 2022 (thigh surgery), while Hector Bellerin is sidelined (calf), sustained in training last week. As a result, either Sergi Roberto or Alex Balde is at right-back.

If you’re betting online, check injury news before backing any team. Barcelona have the best defensive record in the top-flight Spanish league, having surrendered one goal in seven games.

Inter Milan vs Barcelona Head-to-Head

Barcelona have an impressive record against Inter Milan, 8-2 (four draws) in 14 matches played between the two teams. Ansu Fati became the UEFA Champions League youngest-ever goal scorer (against Inter Milan at the 2019 San Siro). Inter lost six matches against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League, more than any other opponent in the competition. Barcelona suffered defeats in three of their last four UEFA Champions League road matches away in the groups, or as many in the previous 25 such games preceding this poor run.

Inter Milan vs Barcelona Prediction

The visitors enter this clash as favorites, priced at -120 on the three-way Moneyline, according to the latest soccer odds. The goal line is set at three.

Defensively vulnerable and often unable to hold a lead, Inter will definitely be struggling to find the back of the net against Barcelona’s rock-solid defense here. Both sides are working around injuries, but Inter’s are way more important (they’re missing Lukaku and Brozovic). Inter Milan averaged 3.3 goals per game in Serie A this season, while Barcelona averaged 2.8 goals per game in La Liga in the first seven rounds of competition. Barcelona have experienced a resurgence under Xavi, and will surely enjoy a deep run in the Champions League predictions this season. Expect them to return home with all three points in this match.
