Inter Milan vs Barcelona Live Stats & Betting Odds

Inter Milan Prediction – Can Inter Milan make most of home advantage?

It’s now or never for Inter Milan as they play host to Group F leaders, Barcelona, on this final matchday 6 of the Champions League with the hosts needing a win to ensure their place in the knockout rounds of the competition.

Their opponents, Barcelona, have already qualified, and this may well work in Inter Milan’s favour as the visitors are likely to be without some key personnel for this final group match in Milan. The home side will also be in confident mood having suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 11 matches in all competitions.

That defeat was a 3-2 loss away at Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League but overall results on home turf have been very solid indeed as Inter have lost just 1 of their last 15 matches in all competitions, which was a defeat to 2nd placed Juventus in Serie A.

Although overall results have produced a mixed return so far in this season’s Champions League campaign, Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last 6 home ties in this competition which includes wins against Marseille, Tottenham and Borussia Dortmund along with holding Barcelona and PSV to draws.

Barcelona Prediction – Can Barcelona finish on a high note?

Having already qualified for the next stage of the Champions League and the ensuing knockout rounds, Barcelona are expected to field a weakened side for this final match in Group F away at Inter Milan with the likes of Messi, Alba and Pique all expected to miss this match while Busquets may be rested in order to avoid being banned due to a build-up of too many yellow cards.

The visitors possess an unassailable 4-point lead at the top of the group over 2nd and 3rd placed Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund respectively but although they still remain unbeaten so far in this season’s Champions League group stages, this record is likely to be tested against Inter Milan on Tuesday night, especially as the hosts need a result here.

Nevertheless, it’s been a solid campaign for Barcelona and manager, Ernesto Valverde, as the visitors have secured wins over Inter Milan (at home), Slavia Prague (away) and another home win over Borussia Dortmund.

Even a great club such as Barcelona can be susceptible to the occasional blow-out though as we saw last season when they were thrashed 4-0 by Liverpool at Anfield, and without some key personnel on Tuesday night, it’s possible they could be handed another rare loss here.

 

Key-Facts – Inter Milan vs Barcelona

  • Inter Milan are unbeaten in their last 6 home ties in the Champions League
  • Inter have lost just 1 of their last 15 home matches in all competitions
  • Barcelona still remain unbeaten in the group stages of the Champions League

 

Betting Tips Verdict
