In this match preview, we bring you the best betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of Barcelona and Inter.
Barcelona vs Inter Betting Tips
Even though Barcelona is one of the biggest favourites for winning both the Champions League and La Liga, this team hasn’t been too impressive so far. They did win plenty of matches since the beginning of the season, but they haven’t done that very convincingly. And the reason for that is that they’ve been struggling with injuries.
Lionel Messi is out and so are a few other first-team players. Still, despite those injury problems, Barca have won their previous two matches. But, before that, they got defeated by Granada CF. And before that, they played a draw with Dortmund in Germany, a match which they were very lucky not to lose.
Their form might not be ideal, but the good news is that they’re playing against Inter at home. Camp Nou is the place where they have all wins in competitive matches since early February. That’s when they played a 1:1 draw with Real Madrid in the semifinal of the Copa del Rey.
They also have a great score against Inter at Camp Nou, having won all of the four matches they played at this stadium in the Champions League. Another reason why Barcelona seem like the favourite in this game is that Inter seem to have set their eyes on the Italian Serie A title, while the continental completion is not their main focus.
The fact that Inter played 1:1 at home against Slavia Prague shows that the Champions League is not their primary objective. On the other hand, in the Serie A, they have been fantastic. They have won every single match in the six rounds played so far. They now have two points more than Juventus, who are trailing behind on the second place on the table. Speaking of which, Inter are playing Juventus on the weekend and their minds have already been set on that game.

Barcelona Form and Latest News
After losing to Granada CF, they won two games in a row. The reason why they haven’t been playing better is that they have a number of injured players. Messi is out, which is their biggest problems. But, so are Umtiti, Fati, Alba, and Dembele.
Inter Form and Latest News
Unlike Barcelona, Inter do not have too many problems with injuries. And unlike Barcelona, they have been in a tremendous form lately. Still, they seem not to care too much about the Champions League. Their main focus this season is the Italian Serie A and considering they’re playing Juventus on weekend, they probably won’t give their best in Spain.
