◻️Inter has a season beyond expectations – is the leader in Serie A and is on hand to go in the best UEFA Champions League.

◻️Now, Inter seems to be made of another dough and will play in front of a packed stadium the decisive match with Barcelona.
◻️With the victory in Prague, correlated with the failure of Borussia at the Camp Nou, Inter needs to get the same result as the Germans in order to qualify.

◻️Inter comes after an excellent series – 8 matches without defeat in Serie A, after the failure with Juventus, of which 6 wins.
◻️In the League, the series is shorter, because the nerazzurri lost to Dortmund, after taking 2-0 at halftime. In the last match, Inter scored only one point at home, with Roma (0-0).
◻️Conte has big problems in the middle of the field, where he cannot rely on Sensi, Gagliardini and Barella. They will play Vecino, Brozovic and Borja Valero.
◻️Inter’s strength lies in the “couple” of the offense. Lautaro Martinez and Lukaku have scored in 14 of the 20 matches this season.
◻️The two will be starters.
◻️Alexis Sanchez is injured, so Esposito is the only backup for attack. Candreva and Asamoah are uncertain, but D’Ambrosio and Biraghi are prepared.

Football Prediction of the Day Inter vs Barcelona
The tour match was not one played with much sportsmanship, the referee being forced to give 6 yellow cards.
Certainly we will have a tense match this time, especially if Inter will not have an advantage on the table.
Barcelona has no points to defend but … the honor and it is expected that the 11 players sent on the field to play with determination.
In these conditions I consider that there are real chances for at least 5 cards, the share in this case being a very attractive one.
Bet Tips: Over 4.5 cards
The Italians are favored and go into the best with a victory, no matter the score. Barcelona comes without important players, and Valverde will manage a part of the holders, so that they will not have emotions in the prospect of the match with Real, for over a week. I do not think the leader of Spain will use too much. If it’s going to get a point, it’s okay, if not, there’s no drama. I do not think we will see more than 3 goals, but at the same time, I am convinced that the match will not end 0-0. Betano offers a more than decent odds for the 1-3 goal range.
