Barcelona vs. Inter: Champions League – Match Preview

by hisham

Barcelona host Inter on Wednesday, with both sides looking to secure their first Champions League wins of the campaign.

Barcelona edged past Getafe on the weekend, with Luis Suarez and Junior Firpo scoring either side of the break.

They opened their Champions League campaign off with a goalless draw away to Borussia Dortmund, although they were indebted to keeper Marc Ter Stegen.

Inter were frustratingly held at home by Slavia Prague, needing a late Nicolo Barella goal to earn a point.

Domestically they’ve won six from six, including a 3-1 success over Sampdoria on the weekend, with Alexis Sanchez among the scorers.

Match history
The pair met in the group stage of the tournament last season, with Barcelona claiming four points.

The most famous meeting between the pair was in the semi-finals of the 2010 competition, when Inter progressed despite a 1-0 loss at the Nou Camp.
