Heavyweights clash at Camp Nou on Wednesday!
<div><h2>Barcelona vs Inter</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/int/uefa-champions-league/fc-barcelona-vs-inter-milano-3894519/?mtid=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><strong>Wednesday, October 2, at Camp Nou</strong></a></p><p>Barca have now rattled off back-to-back victories to move within two points of league leaders Real Madrid. That should give them a measure of confidence as they prepare to welcome Inter to Camp Nou on Wednesday. Antonio Conte’s men boast a 100% record in Serie A, where they have won all six games thus far to sit top of the table. However, they gave an underwhelming display to draw 1-1 at home with Slavia Prague in their Champions League opener, which does not augur particularly well for a trip to Barcelona.</p><h2>Team News</h2><p>Barcelona have barely see Lionel Messi this season as the superstar forward has been ravaged by injuries. He missed their 2-0 win over Getafe at the weekend and he is unlikely to return in time for this match. Yet they still boast plenty of attacking firepower, with Luis Suarez leading the line and Antoine Griezmann making a nuisance of himself. Ousmane Dembele is out, as is teenage sensation Ansu Fati, leaving another youngster in Carles Perez to form an attacking triumvirate along with Suarez and Griezmann. Barca fans will hope for a big performance from Frenkie de Jong, who lit up this competition with Ajax last season.</p><p>Conte rested star striker Romelu Lukaku for Inter’s 3-1 win against Sampdoria at the weekend. He came on as a substitute, but he should be fresh for this trip to Barcelona. Lautaro Martinez started alongside Alexis Sanchez up front on Saturday, and one of them will probably make way for Lukaku. Sanchez scored and was sent off, and he could be the one to make way. Conte has made Inter really solid, with Marcelo Brozovic sitting deep behind Stefano Seni and Roberto Gagliardini in midfield, and Stefan de Vrij anchoring his favoured back three.</p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>Inter have been on fire in their domestic league, but they were poor in that 1-1 draw against an unheralded Slavia Prague side. It will be difficult for them to get a result at Camp Nou. Barcelona have won all three home games so far this season, scoring 12 goals in the process, and even without Messi they have the firepower to hurt Inter in this game.</p><p><strong>Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Coral">Barcelona and over 1.5 goals at 1.87 (20/23) with Coral</a></strong></p></div>
