What Trueform says for Inter Milan vs Barcelona
Inter Milan couldn’t match Barcelona at Camp Nou but past history suggests they can hold their own on home turf at the San Siro.
The Nerazzurri have not tasted defeat in their last four meetings with Barca in Italy and have only lost one of 18 games against Spanish opponents at this venue.
Eight of those fixtures did end in stalemate, though, and each team may be happy with a share of the spoils here to stay clear of Tottenham and PSV.
So 13/5 for a draw is rated a value bet for our first Inter Milan vs Barcelona prediction.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Even with Lionel Messi sidelined, Inter struggled to cope with Barcelona’s movement up front a couple of weeks ago and were probably fortunate not to suffer a heavier defeat.
However, Luciano Spalletti vowed to be more competitive in the return fixture, urging his players to show greater confidence when in possession.
“I’m sad mostly because I wanted a totally different approach in the first half,” he said. “We were not brave enough to play with the ball and we allowed Barcelona to play as they prefer.
“We need to play much better next time, because we are a team with ambition.”
Inter had previously shown plenty of spirit when coming from behind to edge out Tottenham and PSV, while they are going well in Serie A too.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Barcelona already have one foot in the knockout stages, having earlier crushed PSV 4-0 in Spain before beating Spurs 4-2 at Wembley.
However, that attacking display in London was out of character for Ernesto Valverde in the Champions League.
During last season’s group stage, Barca settled for away draws at Olympiakos and Juventus and only shaded Sporting Lisbon via an own goal.
They also drew at Chelsea in the opening knockout round and that safety-first approach seemed justified after collapsing to a 3-0 loss at Roma.
Flying full-back Jordi Alba terrorised Inter on the overlap at Camp Nou but we can’t see him getting forward as much in the reverse fixture.
Messi remains out injured and we like 13/2 for a 1-1 stalemate to finish off our Inter Milan vs Barcelona betting tips.
