Inter vs Barcelona prediction comes before Champions League 6th round matchup. This game will be played on Tuesday, December 10 at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza (San Siro) in Milan, Italy. In this match preview, we bring you betting tips and correct score predictions based on the analysis of these two teams.
Inter vs Barcelona Betting Tips
This is the match that can decide whether Inter are going to play in the Champions League or the Europa League in Spring. As Barcelona have already ensured the top spot in the table of Group F, Inter and Dortmund are battling for the second place.
Both sides have 7 points ahead of the final round of the group stage. However, Inter have a better score in the head-to-head duels. This means that if they finish on equal points, Inter will get a ticket to the knockout stage of the Champions League, while Dortmund will go to the Europa League.
Slavia Prague have only 2 points, which means there’s zero chance they can get above the bottom of the group table. Speaking of the Czech team, they are playing Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park in the last round of the group stage. And if Dortmund win (and they probably will), Inter would need to beat mighty Barcelona in order to stay in the 2nd place.
Although there’s no doubt the player quality is on the side of the Spanish team, there’s one thing going in Inter’s favor – Barcelona do not need points in this game; Inter do. And in 8 days, Barcelona are playing against their biggest rivals, Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga. Therefore, their minds could already be set on that match.
Another good news for Inter fans is that this team has been in an impressive form ever since Antonio Conte took charge this summer. In fact, they are in the best form ever in the Italian Serie A, where they’re leading a two-horse race for the title with Juventus.
What’s crushing their confidence is the fact that they have a pretty poor record with Barcelona, having lost three out of the previous four matches. However, at San Siro, Inter are undefeated by Barca in this century.
