Barcelona were grateful to goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen for earning them a point from a goalless stalemate at Borussia Dortmund.
Substitute Nicolo Barella netted in stoppage time to come to Inter Milan’s rescue as they salvaged a 1-1 draw at home to Slavia Prague.
We’re taking 17/5 for another stalemate here as our opening Barcelona vs Inter Milan prediction.
A Look At Barcelona’s Betting Odds
Ter Stegen made a remarkable double save from a penalty as Barcelona’s slow start to the season continued in their Group F opener.
The keeper was at full stretch to deny countryman Marco Reus and then got up to calmly collect the bouncing rebound.
Replays, though, showed Ter Stegen had been off his line when the spot-kick was taken, but there was no video assistant referee review.
Dortmund also hit the crossbar through substitute Julian Brandt and on another night Barca could easily have been on the end of a defeat.
Boss Ernesto Valverde said: “It was a difficult game in a great atmosphere. We had to suffer a lot, especially after the break when we lost control.
“Dortmund made it complicated for us, but fortunately Marc has been very good. We have to thank Marc for his outstanding saves. We have a great goalkeeper.”
Barcelona face an anxious wait over the fitness of playmaker Lionel Messi, who has been troubled by a calf problem and an abductor muscle injury.
Looking at the Barcelona vs Inter Milan odds, Draw HT/Draw FT at 6/1 is good value.
A Look At Inter Milan’s Betting Odds
Inter Milan have made an excellent start to the season under new boss Antonio Conte.
They have a 100 per cent record in Serie A after six games to sit two points ahead of champions Juventus.
But they did need a last-gasp Barella strike to earn a point against Prague, the ball being bundled in after Stefano Sensi’s free-kick had hit the crossbar.
Conte said on UEFA.com: “I don’t want to talk about single players, we were all below par, including myself.
“I’m the most responsible of all actually, because I didn’t manage to explain to the team how they should have played this game.
“We only played with long balls, this is not the football I want.”
Inter have conceded just three goals in seven games this season and with Messi possibly missing out through injury, we anticipate goals to be at a premium.
Indeed, we will finish off our Barcelona vs Inter Milan betting tips by predicting a goalless draw at speculative odds of 11/1.
