Barcelona vs Inter Milan | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
Wednesday’s top game will be played at Camp Nou, where Barcelona hosts Inter. These two sides will write another chapter in their rivalry. After all these teams were multiple winners of the Champions League. Lionel Messi is out for this match, but that doesn’t change anything for the hosts. On the other side, it opens up many possibilities for the guests.
Blaugrana was very furious against Sevilla in the La Liga championship. They defeated them with 4:2, completely dominating the entire game. Meanwhile, Inter played one of the biggest derbies in the world, against their city rival AC Milan. And they won it in extra-time, with Mauricio Icardo once again delivering a dagger to the opponents.
The Catalonian team looks much better now than some 20 days ago. A win over Sevilla is clear proof for our claim. Currently, they are without a loss for four straight events, but they have minor issues in the back-line. What is good for them is the fact that the attack works perfectly and that even without Messi they have a lot of potential upfronts. Barca is superb at Camp Nou where they haven’t lost a competitive game in ages. Against a solid team of PSV, they showed how they could dismantle a team in no time. The same happened in London in a clash against Tottenham. We are going to see some changes in their lineup, but listen to us when we say that Messi’s absence will not disturb the team on the field. Most of the pundits are saying that it will affect Barca’s display, but those statements are not very clever.
Mauro Icardi is the man whose name is on the lips of every Inter fan right now. The Argentinian scored a game-winning goal against AC Milan in the 93rd minute of Derby Della Madonnina. Not so long ago he did the same thing against Tottenham in the Champions League. The Italians are good at the moment, with sevens straight wins in a row. That is something we didn’t see for a long time when talking about Inter. After a lousy start and horrific games against Parma, Torino, and Sassuolo, Luciano Spaletti found the perfect formula for his players, pushing them upwards on all fronts. The efficiency of their games is moderate, between 2 and 3 goals, and six of the previous nine ended like that.

So far these clubs met 10 times in official matches throughout history. Barca has a positive record with 5 wins, while Inter has only two. The goal difference is on Barca’s side, 17:8. The most recent memory of these two sides clashing was from 2010, when Inter eliminated Blaugrana in the semifinals of the Champions League.

Barcelona vs Inter Milan | Top Betting Tip: Barcelona (2-0)
When Barca plays at home, whether that is with the best lineup or not, they are always going for a win, and nothing will be different now. We are once again mentioning the hype around Messi’s injuries. Be sober and think straight. You have Suarez, Dembele, Vidal, Coutinh, Arthur, at your disposal, and these guys are world-class players. So, Barca’s win here is the most realistic outcome. And to tell you right away, we expect it to be with clean sheets. The overall efficiency might not be anything spectacular, but for sure it is not going to be without goals or with just one. Stick with a moderate, 2 or 3 goals. Final word, Barcelona – Inter Milan 2:0.
