The pressure is on Barcelona to overturn last week’s 1-0 loss at Inter Milan as these teams fight it out behind Bayern Munich in Group C.
The Catalan giants trail the Nerazzurri by three points at the halfway stage and must now take a positive approach to this Camp Nou clash.
That should lead to a more open contest, so bwin’s price boost of 21/10 for a home win and both teams to score is our first Barcelona vs Inter Milan prediction.
Barcelona have shown enough to suggest they are back on an upward curve this season, following a predictable dip after Lionel Messi’s departure.
The Blaugrana are top of La Liga after Sunday’s win over Celta Vigo made it seven straight victories in Spain’s top flight.
In this competition, they kicked off with a 5-1 drubbing of Viktoria Plzen and played well when going down 2-0 away to Bayern Munich.
However, losing at the San Siro was a bitter pill to swallow, especially as they had 68 per cent of the possession.
Ousmane Dembele hit the post and Pedri had an equaliser chalked off due to an accidental handball in the build-up.
Head coach Xavi said: “We weren’t dynamic enough for what I wanted. We stopped Inter’s counter-attacks quite well and we made some chances, but we couldn’t convert any of them.
“We go away with this defeat leaving us in a very difficult position – we have three finals left and that’s how we’ll treat them.”
Inter will again focus heavily on stopping Robert Lewandowski, but that could free up space for runners in behind.
Teenage sensation Pedri netted at the weekend and we like Barcelona vs Inter Milan odds.
Inter Milan Odds
Hakan Calhanoglu’s sweet strike from the edge of the box settled the issue in Inter’s favour at the San Siro, backed up by some resilient defending.
Head coach Simone Inzaghi said: “It’s a beautiful evening, we defeated one of the strongest teams in the world.
“When everyone is ready to sacrifice, you can live such evenings. We suffered together, we did well on the pitch. We had a great game.”
The Nerazzurri had previously bounced back from a 2-0 home loss to Bayern by beating Viktoria by the same scoreline on the road.
However, they are only seventh in Serie A and have already suffered four defeats in Italy’s top flight.
Losing defensive midfielder Marcelo Brozovic has been a big blow, while Joaquin Correa has also joined Romelu Lukaku on the sidelines.
Let’s finish off our Barcelona vs Inter Milan betting tips by taking 10/3 for the hosts to oblige by exactly two goals.
