Inter Milan suffered a 2-0 defeat when they traveled to Barcelona on October 24, but are still in a strong position when it comes to making the knockout round of the competition. Currently, Inter sits in the second position after defeating Tottenham and PSV in their first two Group B matches. Indeed, the Italian outfit found it challenging to harm Barcelona at Camp Nou, but it will be a different match at San Siro on Tuesday night. Inter will undoubtedly feel that they did not do themselves justice when they traveled to Barcelona last month but will have the chance to put down a marker when the Spanish champions travel to Milan.
Barcelona has won 6 out of 8 matches in all competitions. Barcelona will go in search of their sixth straight win in all competitions when they travel to Inter this week. Three straight La Liga wins has taken Barcelona to the top of the table, with a 4-2 win over Sevilla followed by a 5-1 success over Real Madrid in El Clasico. That said, Ernesto Valverde‘s side needed two late goals to beat Rayo Vallecano on Saturday night, and a similar performance against Inter this week would make it very difficult for the Spanish side to pick up a good result.
There is a chance that Lionel Messi could be back for this match, however, and that would be a massive boost to Barcelona as they look to move onto 12 points in the section, which would all but book their spot in the next round.

PlayerzPot Probable Line-up:
Definitely, Barcelona is quite strong for Inter at Camp Nou, but Inter would surely try to equalize the match, drawing strength from the fact that they are at their home ground.
