Ahead of this fixture Inter Milan and Barcelona have very similar Champions League records. Both have defeated Czech side Viktoria Plzen and both suffered defeat at the hands of Group C topping Bayern Munich. This makes this matchup fairly important for both side because at this early stage it looks like they’ll be duking it out for the second qualification spot. 

Barcelona come into this match in stronger form, currently on a run of six straight wins in the Spanish top flight. The side’s most recent win was a 1-0 victory over midtable Mallorca. Meanwhile, Inter endured a frustrating defeat to Roma in the Italy's Serie A last weekend. Inter took the lead but Roma fought back to claim the three points thanks to goal from Paulo Dybala and Chris Smalling.

Barcelona have a rich heritage in the Champions League, but have now gone seven years without lifting the famous trophy. Manager Xavi will be desperate to break that dry spell, and if Barcelona are to prove they can compete with Europe’s elite once again, they must first dispatch Inter Milan on their own turf. 

There are three crucial points on offer in this game, and both teams will be desperate to claim them. Find out how this one plays out by watching an Inter Milan vs Barcelona live stream
